Has anyone heard of this place before. Looks like a great spot to spend a few days. Looks to be about 2 1/2 hours north of Brissie.

Looks pretty good Derek and cheap enough, do you happen to know if it is 'pet friendly'??

Thanks Alan for the heads up and as I don't have a GSD either I expect I too would be OK with my girl and I also imagine that maybe you are right, on this occasion size does matter.

It is good to be able to add another venue to my ever growing list of 'pet friendly' venues.

Will you report back on what it was like after you go at Easter please??

Cheers GL

No email so i rang them,yes my three dogs are ok,same rules apply as every where else on lead, well behaved etc. They had to open another section for Easter but he said it is on the creek so i booked myself in. I will actually go Thursday so hopefully will get a good spot.
No doubt will see Al and the kids swimming.

Great stuff PJ, I won't need to check it out then as no doubt you and Alan will give us a report when you return.

Did they ask about the size/breed of your dogs??

Yes they did Gypsy,i thought three might have been a problem so i gave him the speel that they were camping dogs and were used to being on lead at camp sites,he was fine about it.

I just wondered if they have any particular policy on breeds or size rather than the number. Some places are fine if they are little dogs.
