Yep, thats where we are going at new years. One of our favourite spots.

EPA website
https://www.epa.qld.gov.au/parks/iaparks/gds/IAGDS030.do

Large, has a few trees, I think there are 4 toilet blocks, no showers, quite a good swimming hole. Can get muddy if it rains so keep out of what may look like drainage paths.

And you are allowed to have horses.

Here are some pics (taken New Years Day 2006)

Many years ago it was one of our favourites. All I can say is it's getting busier.

Has a nice waterhole if there has been some rain.

charlie Morelands is the best, as its hot in Qld in summer and you can get the flooding rains (well at least you did when I lived there 5 yrs ago)... we used to chill out at Charlie Morelands every year from New Years for 2 weeks.

the creek is excellent, it is family orientated and there are some good bushwalking tracks as well as 4 wd'ing and 2 wd'ing to do.

The cheese factory at Kenilworth is fabulous, you get to taste all different cheeses and yoghurts with an awesome unsual playground across the road for the kids.

The pub at Kenilworth used to have a great counter meal, its an old pub with one of those wide old Qlder type verandahs... I loved it.

I hope to camp there again one day....

Only prob is the goannas, they are not shy of humans and can be a nuisance, the funny thing is they are scared of the bush turkeys so encourage the bush turkeys around the camp
I absolutely love downunder and want to see all of it, especially the outback

Just went to the Kenilworth cheese factory last week and bought some yummy cheeses to bring home. Had not been before so it was a lovely expereince for me.

Have not been to Charlie Morelands though as it is not pet friendly.

I will be going to the cheese factory as soon as I get back up there.. which one(s) did you get gypsylady..

My favorites are the smoked cheese, garlic cheese and I cant remember the other ones.. its been tooo long.

Also loved the yoghurts, esp the rum and raisen but the raisens do sink to the bottom so you have to stir it well... lol

I bought the Cooloola cheese and one of the mild ones. I also test tased a few others as well and was especially interested in the ginger one but could not get one to try so left it.

I did not see anything much in the way of youghurt. I do however make yoghurt in my Dream Pot at home and have just tried the nectarine one and it is the yummiest... Can really recommend that one.

I love rum and raisin ice cream though I am not an ice cream person as such.

Well it won't be too many more sleeps before you will be here aussiegal and you will be able to catchup on all the things you have missed in the time you have been away. Exciting times are ahead for you I can see.
