“Dayspring” is a large isolated private site ideal for group bookings.  It is on a tranquil part of the Albert River just a few miles down stream from Darlington Park.  

One of the greatest attractions is the amazing night sky.  Because the fire pit area is down near the rapids, the high river bank blocks out the city’s lights and glow. It is common to see more than one shooting star in a night.  A good time to view the night sky is a week either side of the new moon.  If you find out  (Google) when the ISS is going overhead and get to view it, you will be in awe, as we have been. A week or so up to a full moon is ideal for gatherings. The moon reflecting on the water and lighting up the campgrounds,  the fire pit blazing and the aroma of the cook-ups the boys are doing will surely create a delightful atmosphere for your party.

 My hubby Bruce and I have been farming here since ‘85 and love the climate and landscape.

We use our hipcamps a lot ourselves and are enjoying sharing our 2 x water front camp sites with you.

 “Dayspring” and  our new hipcamp,  “GEM Discovery”.  

We will do our best to make your stay pleasurable and are happy to share with you what we have so enjoyed for all these years. 

There is a lot to do and see in the Scenic Rim area, so pick up some information at Beaudesert museum or Information centre on the way,  or just chill!

“Dayspring” Camping Ground is ideal for a group booking of  8 to 15 guests with a maximum of  5 vehicles, 

                     or  have

                                    “DAYSPRING” TO YOURSELF !

*  We have 8 nice comfortable chairs and a bench you can use.

* I can supply and deliver wood for the fire pit to save you time and space at  $20  for a good bundle.

 * Pack your paddle boards or water lounge to float on the river!

* Be prepared for cooler Kerry Valley nights. 

* Remember your own portable toilet facility is essential to camp at “Dayspring”. 

* Note that if the grounds are too wet on your booking dates,  we will need to reschedule or cancel.

* Getting back to Nature is extremely easy at “Dayspring”

Hi Sue, thank you fir sharing your property with us. We enjoyed every minute. The well maintained grass, firewood, tinder and newspaper for our easy use, fresh flowers on the bench and the freshly washed hammocks. The rivet and birdlife was absolutely amazing. We saw no people, no noise but the river running, quiet and peaceful. This place is absolutely worth every penny👌👌

Loved it

This has been our favourite campsite to date. It’s not without its challenges but they are worth it. It’s close to town (shops) for supplies and yet so private and secluded. The creek was very fast flowing (not suitable for young kids) but that was because we had so much rain in the region. We had concerns at one point of flooding and Sue was awesome giving her advice and in the end the river only rose about 40cm. The wind can be extremely strong but ultimately this is a superb campsite!

Response from Sue, the Host, on January 5th, 2022

It has been windy here as well. There has been quite a lot of rain in the catchment area which will be filling up the springs ensuring a good water supply for the current crops. Glad you enjoyed your time at “Dayspring”

We had the most amazing weekend at Dayspring! It is our new favourite campsite! It was so nice and relaxing falling asleep to the sound of the running creek. The deep section of the creek was perfect for cooling off during the day too. Sue was a lovely host and made sure our stay was the best it could possibly be.
