QLD - Centenary Park, Laidley

Postby Troyk » Sat Jan 05, 2008 8:33 pm

This Centenary Park south of Laidley.

Has toilets, kids swings, showers and laundry. Seems to be a good stop for grey nomads.

There is a pub not far away if you don't like cooking.

The first 2 nights were free.

Photos taken Feb 2004.

As usual feel free to add.

More info (from Laidley Shire Council who run it). They have another ground at Lake Dyer or Bill Gunn Dam just outside of Laidley, not far from the Highway.

Only negative were the flies.

Bill Gunn Dam (Lake Dyer) is also free for the first 2 nights though there is some talk of them introducing a fee, something like $20.00 for a weekend. They do have an amenities block with a refundable deposit for the key. It is also not pet friendly.

There is only one shower at Centenary Park which is shared by all.

And at times the moths can also be a problems along with the flies. Think the flies are a problem because of the commercial bins stored in the park.

The laundry consistes of a washing tub only, no washing machine.

There are also small markets on Sunday down the road at Mulgowie in the back street from the pub.

Cheers...

I sometimes organise a 'girls only' weekend camping for some of my female work collegues and am considering going to Centenary Park for the next one.

We had the last one at Flanagans and we were awarded the 'Happiest Camper' award by the managers. They apparently felt we deserved the award because it was a terrible weekend weather wise and they were most surprised at the laughter that emanated from our camp.
