This camp site drops slightly down from the clear flat to a level pad. Adjacent to the campsite is a reliable natural waterhole with gums and iron-bark offering shade. Clear sky above, water and shade, enjoy your stay here. For the best position, a bit of manoeuvring will be required for a large van (well worth it). If you preferred to pull up on the flat just above camp, your welcome to do that too.

2wd access although may become slippery under wet conditions (you will still get through)

This site is private, about 800m from the road and 400m from the other camp.

The property is used for beef cattle and depending on grazing rotation, cattle may wander nearby.

Pets welcome however must be under control and not chase cattle or wildlife. There is another camp in the paddock, your dog must not be aggressive.

*Please notify us if bringing a dog*

 Please clean up after your dog ready for the next camper.

Monitor your dog closely and tie up if necessary, (particularly if you have 2 dogs). We’ve had ‘stock proof’ dogs here before that have relentlessly chased the cattle through fences/roads and into the distant unexplored land.

Fires permitted only in fire-rings provided. Check for local fire ban restrictions first.  There is plenty of wood lying around for use (bring your axe or saw).

The camp has an undercover area (6x5), longdrop loo, fire pits, bbq plate for over fire.

There is a raised bath tub to set a fire underneath and have a long hot soak. (Fresh bulk rainwater is available in the extras).

There is a floodlight in position in the trees, run it off a generator and lead if you want. ( I can provide a generator and lead in extras if you need).

Things to do 

- Send some golf balls into space

-Swimming in the water holes are welcome, please check in the water for depth and sticks

-Brisbane river is up the road (10mins) to Savages crossing or Twin Bridges. Fantastic swimming or lazing in the running water.

 -Push bikes, Brisbane Valley Rail Trail is 5min away if you jump on at Borallon Station Rd. Some cattle tracks for the kids to ride along in the paddock also.

 -Wivenhoe, Somerset Dam in the area for water sports

-Wildlife watching, this paddock sustains a large variety of native animals, if you’ve got a keen eye

-Bottle Tree pub is just down the road, - bit more than walking distance tho :)

-Take it easy

Great spot. Pet friendly. Well maintained. Easy drive from Brisbane. Cameron delivered some wood for our use as well. Having a long drop toilet was a real convenience.

It was one of the best camp sites I had ever stayed at. Logs to sit on by the fire, a shelter, table and a beautiful bath in the stars. It was very far away from the other camp site so very private. We saw lots of cows and went to the creek next to the camp site, was absolutely great we will definitely be going back again!+

Gorgeous scenery, the bath was so worth it. Us and our dog thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Loved watching the kangaroos as the sun was rising. Camp was beautifully maintained with some lovely extra touches. 10/10 recommend for some time out. It was private and easily accessible. Thanks Cameron!

What a way to spend a long weekend! It cannot get any better than chilling in a secluded campsite to ourselves, with not a soul in sight. Oh wait there is, a nice hot outdoor bath by moonlight or having a snooze whilst swinging in the hammock between the two posts in the great shelter on site. We will be back for sure!
