Suggestions for Queens Birthday Long Weekend

Postby amanda » Tue May 01, 2007 5:15 pm

Hi everyone

Does anyone have a suggestion of where we can go for the Queens Birthday weekend in the Sunshine Coast - Bundaberg region? Our preference is for beachside rather than inland, and fireplaces would be an absolute bonus. We often camp at Boreen Point which we love, but we'd like to try somewhere new for a change. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Amanda

Burrum Heads (sp) seems good although I've not been there but it is very close to Hervey Bay so I'd book now.

Maybe Agnes Waters (about 1.5 hrs north of Bundy) .. BUT I did like the caravan park at Eliott Heads when I was there last week.

Just my suggestions as I would like to try these myself.

Cheers ...

Burrum Heads was one on the list, but we were uncertain what was actually there. eg. are there any pubs/clubs for meals?

Yes Burrum Heads has a pub/club, bakery, small shops. Nice sleepy holiday village. Never camped, just bunked in with the parents when they rented a house.

Also, being only 20m ins from Hervey Bay you could always go there for a meal. RSL, Boat Club etc.

When I was a kid we used to go every year with the olds to Burrum Heads great spot we were always busy fishing running around with other kids etc, its safe for swimming too. That was over 10 years ago now and I haven't been there since everytime I go to Hervey Bay I mean to stop in but time dosen't permit :(

me and the kids are packing off to flanagan's, bein a single mum i sorta like the security of a kiosk and people around the place (have an awful fear of tent slashers) so we take the mongrel dog too. My really cool tip is to take a solar light (like the one in your garden) for a night lite, it keeps the possums a bit further away from your tent, they can make a hell of a noise and the dog doesn't get much sleep cos he thinks he's on possum duty (food bowl is sacred!) I hope the creek has a bit more water than at christmas time, anyone been there lately?

Don't worry my tent slashing days are over! I still steal the odd dog though, especially the noisy ones. :grin:

Sorry its been one of those days at work.

Passed through Flanagans a few weeks ago and there was still a reasonable amount of water in the creek as it appears to be fed from a spring. Though I think it might be a tad cold.

Sorry to hear about the day, hope it's good week this one, mate!
If you can steal a 50 kg dog you must be really strong.
kids don't care how cold it is they'll swim anyways, i'll jump in too, i do seaworld/dolphin rider tricks with the dog on a rope, (looks lame-as, but i gotta do summin to get people lookin at me), as long as i'm amusing myself i'm happy, and there's always the hot shower afterwards!
