All booked for Friday and Saturday night. It is myself and my 4 year old boy Thomas.

Look forward to meeting you all, having a few drinks and probably doing the worst hula dance in history :-)

Put up the new tent in my parents backyard on the weekend, was all good, so I'm ready to go..

Oh I shall not speak to quickly to say that I won't need any help, save for having to eat my words on the day :-)

Its a great tent, and a great bed that I bought. Shame it is only for two nights.

There will be more trips coming up and you can now plan holidays as well. Imagine being able to go camping somewhere for a whole week or better.

And I imagine that if you wanted you could stay on for a couple of extra days. There is no need for you to pack up camp and go when the others do, expecially if you do not have any work committments.

Yeah I can imagine I am going to enjoy my camping expeditions :-)

Easter will be great to do alonger stay wherever we may end up. Any suggestions? I will probably need to book somewhere quick I would think..

I do study art, so fortunately I can be flexible and take days off here and there which is a bonus. :-)

I especially like Island Reach at Imbil but it can get extremely busy over the Easter period so am not sure if I would recommend it at that time.

You could try any of the following:

Tamborine Mountain Caravan & Camping
http://www.tamborine.info

Borumba Deer Park also at Imbil phone number: 07 5484 5196

Queen Mary Falls
inquiries@queenmaryfallscaravanpark.com.au Phone: 07 4664 7151

Gold Coast Holiday Park
http://www.goldcoastholidaypark.com.au

Neurum Creek Bush Retreat
http://www.ncbr.com.au/

Spring Gully Stays (Canungra) (might be a bit busy over Easter too)
http://www.springgullystays.com.au/

I'm all booked in now too....am looking forward to the weekend.

Another great place is Bigriggen just outside of Rathdowney, an easy not too far away drive from Brissie and very family orientated, is one of my favourite places.

Just a quick couple of questions....

Is there a communal kitchen or do we need to bring all the neccessities? (E.g. Awnings, tables, bbq, sink, etc)

Are there camp fire areas to cook on close to the camp sites?

Even though the campsites are powered are they still on a grassed area?

My apologies if l've missed the info on the park website but l'm just a little unclear as to what to bring just in case.


Thanks,
Lee

I concur with Al, should be right with tables, but you might want to bring some chairs though :grin:
