QLD - Peach Trees, Jimna

QLD - Peach Trees, Jimna

Postby kazzakanary » Mon Oct 01, 2007 10:25 am

I know there is a review already in here regarding Peach Trees but as I was there yesterday I thought I would add another!
As usual, it was lovely and peaceful - it was a tad busy (school holidays) but we got a nice spot just past the entrance and close to the toilets!
Both showers were working in the mens block but only the 1 in the ladies. 60c was enough for a hot shower - and boy it was good!!
The kids jumped off the deck into the creek! (and some people were even fishing! - don't think they caught anything though!)
The park really cleared out Sunday arvo (us included). Lucky we were there Thurs arv to get a good spot cause by Fri lunch time it was pretty full!
We really liked it but do want to check out Elanda Point and Amamoor soon too!!

Glad you had a good time. Its one of our favourite spots.

Last there June School Holidays last year, and the same thing happened. We arrived Saturday, still got a good spot with a table, and by Sunday afternoon everyone was gone and we had the place to ourselves, except for the odd overnighter for the next few days.

Haven't been since they stopped supplying the firewood, which was one of the features of the place. And there was the Jimna Fire tower as well.

Jimma

I have never camped at Jimma but been there many times on day trips, have friends who used to go there often and they loved it... they did always advise that you could hear the dingoes at night time but never had trouble with them.

I really dont know why I never camped there, used to always goes to Charlie Morelands I guess...
Jimma was definately pleasant looking and the bonus is having the showers.
I absolutely love downunder and want to see all of it, especially the outback

Just got back from Peach Trees yesterday after being flooded in on Friday, rained intermittently all week but the family still enjoyed it.

A couple of photos of the bridge crossing coming in to the park:

Tones, How deep was the water? At a guess it must be close to a metre, trying remember how much of a dip there is.

After it went down we figured it was 2-2.5 metres above the bridge

Good shot of the possum, last time I was there I had one perched under my chair.

How did the ground hold up? Did it get mushy? Only reason I ask is I don't think I have ever been there when it has rained. I know Charlie Moreland can get messy, as I still have the stains on my tent to prove it.

Thanks for the photos. Its good value. :grin:

I reckon at least 2 metres above the bridge - it is quite a dip of a bridge from memory. I LOVE Peach Trees
