Sorry about the size of the photo's here - I resized them in Photobucket and they look fine, however everytime I try to load them on here they expand again. Sorry!
I'm just back from a week at Boreen Point. I hadn't been there in 2 years, but I'm pleased to say it is just as lovely as ever.
The managers have changed over, but the new ones are just as nice as the old ones and keep the place very neat and tidy. The amenities block has toilets, hot showers, and areas for washing. There isn't a camp kitchen as such, however there is a covered BBQ area with tables and chairs. There are a few fireplaces scattered about the camp, and this is the only place you can have an open fire. We were fortunate to have one right outside our tent, which was a blessing because it was a little chilly at night. Firewood can be purchased from the managers for $10 a bag, and all proceeds go to the rural bushfire brigade. Site fees were $8 per adult per night. Pet's are not permitted, and we were entertained one afternoon by one of the managers on his pushbike trying to chase a local brown cattle dog out of the park. The dog defintely had his measure!
The camp is on the banks of Lake Cooroibah, and there is a little sandy beach for swimming. You'll see plenty of bird life about - we were visited by kookaburra's, galahs, ducks, whip birds, and of course the odd crow or two. Canoes and kayaks can be hired from the managers, or small power boats can be hired just a short stroll away from the park. The town really only has a local store and a pub, but you can get pretty much all you need, and Tewantin is only about a 15 minute drive for any extras.
We took a drive out to Elanda Point Caravan Park to have a sticky beak - although it was very picturesque, the multitude of signs pointing out the do's, or should I say dont's of the place left us with the feeling that you'd only have to f*rt and the manager would be telling you to keep it down. There were literally signs advising against nearly everything - no campfires, alcohol consumption to be limited, groups only permittetd to use the camp kitchen, and the list went on and on.
Here's a couple of shots of our sport at Boreen:
