Howdy!...plenty of flat ground all over the place and lots of shade, collect all the wood you want - take a chainsaw or
just simply collect from fallen trees depends on what type of fire you want. I never chainsaw cause I get plenty for just our little family but the group take a ute and chop a huge load every day - they love their bonfires and the owner loves it cause it cleans up his land from the fallen trees he has bulldozed into a heap. My first day there I normally take my car for an explore and collect leftover wood from other camps - got pretty used to where most of the bigger camps like to be
Dalrymple creek runs through the property and I have always seen it running even during the drought. Plenty of water this time - great swimming holes for the bigger kids to raft on, smaller spots right next door for the littlies to get wet but be safe, so you can sit by the creek and watch both. Push Bikes are great out there, plenty of room for them just to ride around in near your camp and they can make jumps etc, lots of tracks for the older kids. Mudsliding is a great past time for our kids, No organised activities but there is an animal sanctuary just b4 Gordon Country, I know the owners as Anne used to manage GC. They have puppies, lambs, 3 horses, birds, border collie dogs - heaps that just want cuddles not a mean dog amongst them, Anne actually breeds these. She has Westies as well, beautiful country people, Anne actually brought "Prinnie" her 23 yr old qtr horse mare up to camp for the kids to have a ride as a favour to me. She does ride through the property and lets kids sit on Prinnie and pat her. I go exploring a lot and I managed to find the breeding mares about 11 of them, by the 3rd day they recognised the car and came up for bread, carrots and even managed to brush a few and got lots of cuddles. There is a dam there and we put pots in the creek but had the wrong bait, apparently mango and watermelon is the go, We tried wild mandarins and they didn't like them obviously. No motor bikes but there was a dune buggy there. They take a low profile ute and trailer and use the dune buggy to explore, they go about once a month!
Cabins have been done up beautifully, old stoves inside, huge verandahs, and they also have bbqs now as well, Huge firepits outside with chairs, some cabins have swinging love seats
. These are in a spot on their own well seperated and have their own amenities block. Rates for 2 bedroom $110 for the weekend, Think they have up to 12 people cabins. Only have to take food and bedding! A little rustic not 5 star but they were all full up last weekend!
Still my favourite spot, I spoke to Ian the owner and he is building another amenities block at the Festival spot for xmas.
Again once my photos are downloaded will put some up!
Hope this helps!
