spring gully stays

Postby madcamper » Sat Sep 20, 2008 7:38 am

Hi everyone, We have just returned from our trip at 'levuka'..... We had a great time, loved the place, but thought it was a bit far for the weekend.. We are thinking of going out to Canungra in a few weeks time and heading to 'spring gully stays'. Has anybody been camping there recently, or can give me any tips or advise on the place? Thanks

I was there a couple of weekends ago. There are 2 areas, one on this side of the creek will all amenities and bush camping on the other side with little or no amenities and very cheap as in $10 per site per night.

Paul had placed portable loos on the bush camping side but you will need to check if this is to be a permanent thing or not.

In the main area they have a local tour operator who brings his group there for lunch with whip cracking demonstrations, boomerang throwing etc. They also sometimes have morning or afternoon tea functions as well.

Paul told me they had a huge deluge of water through there in January this year and there is a lot of evidence of that still around the creek.

I love camping on both sides but it depends on how well set up you are.

The attached pics are of the bush camping side.

Thanks Gypsy, they are great photos. I like the sound of the bush camping side. We have our own shower and toilet setup, so it sounds perfect. Just a quick question.... do you take your own drinking water? And im guessing that you are allowed to have a fire anywhere on the bush camping side... is that right? Cheers Jackie

Madcamper, Have a look at this thread, it got a bot of info.viewtopic.php?f=62&t=2019

I did a recon there late last year, and it was quite a good setup. Its on my list of places to take the family.

Yes Jackie you need to take drinking water if you are camping on the other side but water for showers etc you can get from the creek if need be.

And yes you can pretty well have a fire anywhere provided there are no fire bans.
