We absolutely loved it at gumridge. From start to finish our stay there was wonderful. We were greeted with friendly faces (and a 19 year old cat). With a beautiful view of the mountains during the day and the blanket of stars above you at night it’s hard not to enjoy every minute of your stay. There are a few tourist spots in the area if you’re looking for some activities, and Boonah is a scenic 20 minute drive from Gumridge if you need a few more supplies. We loved it so much that we asked to stay an extra night and Peter happily obliged. I absolutely recommend staying here!

Nice views. Not many flat sites. Very relaxing. Peter was very friendly. Drive in had gorgeous 360 views.
Be warned cicadas are extremely loud to the point of deafening, but not constant.

Spent an awesome night on the site at the top of the hill. Wind was just a delightful breeze, spot on.

Nice place for walks, and wildlife watching. There was even a koala hanging around at night.

Had a beautiful one night stay here ! Wish we booked for a couple more nights. Peter was very accommodating and even recommended a site for us with beautiful views and privacy. Perfect trees for a hammock and relax. We would definitely come visit again sometime !
