Great spot, nice & quiet, a good amount of separation between campsites. Fresh clean running water & a good swimming hole. I would stay there again for sure. Beats the hell out of the overcrowded campgrounds that pack people in on top of each other. Seen a couple of platypus too, briefly, from a distance.
Country air to revitalise the soul
Fabulous little spot by the river with picturesque surroundings and fresh country air to revitalise the soul! The farm was quiet with a few other campers at various spots dotted around but plenty of privacy. Portaloos clean and accessible, camp fires set for the whole weekend (ask for firewood). We walked the farm and found some horses, Betsy the pig, tiger the dog, & a few kangaroos. We had a visit from the cows at breakfast time & enjoyed lunch at the nearby winery which was only a short walk away.
I stayed at Sarabah Stud Lower Platypus hole Last week (July). Temperature was cool, but Robert came around on the quad with a trailer full of firewood he had on offer, so I got to have a nice toasty fire to keep me warm. It looks like there was a fair sized flood came through the area pretty recently, but you can tell that he's put a lot of effort into cleaning the area up and getting it set for plenty of camping trips. I drive a little Yaris and was able to get it in to the campsite with no risk of damage or bogging. (It did rain pretty steadily on my second night out, so i had to drive my car back out to the main road to avoid any potential sticky ground on the next day)
When I arrived at camp, a few friendly and curious cows came over to see what I was doing, but they were no bother and soon enough they left me alone and went to go find something to eat.
The flora in the local vicinity was quite interesting. On one side of the creek, the cows were able to freely wander around. So they had flattened a lot of the river grasses and reeds next to the creek bed. At first I wasn't too thrilled about this, but then I went exploring with my camping chair and binoculars and was able to walk along a good length of the creek and sit to watch the local wildlife. I don't like to damage plantlife when I explore, so being able to walk the entire length of the creek was great. I was impressed because while the camping side of the creek was cleared a little bit by the cattle, the far side of the bank was untouched. So you get to walk along creekside and look into this nice long stretch of overgrown shrub and bush. I was amazed at the number of fruiting and flowering trees around, which attracted all sorts of birdlife. I was also lucky enough to see a platypus within about 10 minutes of arriving. So they are definitely in there swimming around.
All in all. It's a great spot. The sky was perfectly clear on my first night, so i got to see a good patch of night sky as well. Largely unpolluted by the night time glow from Brisbane lights.
Quiet and peaceful. It's worth a look. Unsurprisingly, it looks like the best campsite/s are the ones that require a 4x4 to get to.
Amazing as always
Second time camping at Sarabah Stud and first time in the lower platypus hole.
Amazing place that is well kept. The area is beautiful. Rob is also super helpful where required.
