Reading reviews on Darlington Park Beaudesert,some say take your own water another says there is tap water by the creek as long as you boil it.Anyone been there lately?

PJ I reckon take water to be safe. Plus take plenty of fly spray they are huge and plentiful. Also be careful of ticks!

I alkways BYO water just for drinking, cooking and tea/coffee,
The tap water is only for washing up.
I don't take chances.
Great way to ruin a wonderful camping weekend...to pick up a bug.

You can buy a 10L container from Kmart for about $13, and I think 20L is about $20. The brand is willow and is blue in colour.

For drinking water + coffee and cooking 10L will last the weekend for a single.

You can buy a tap for them as well with a lever which in travel screws into the cap. :mrgreen:

I have a roof rack,it already gets chockers.(which i now think for the money it cost me i should have bought a small trailer only everyone the Getz wouldn`t pull one) I do have a water container but i usually go through one a day, i guess i have to use it for drinking and cokking only. Dear oh dear !! us campers are never satisfyed.

According to the locals October is when the flies start to get bad . The creek water is clean, clear and odourless but I wouldn't drink it , but its ok to wash up and shower in.

We were just there this past weekend (Oct) and wanted to put in a big PLUG for the park!
Reasons we loved Darlington Park:
The onside managers (Judith and David) are so incredibly helpful and friendly!
There are platypus in the creek (and turtles) and a rope swing
Plenty of shallow "rapids" for the kids
Extremely clean amenities - toilets and BBQs
Playground for the kids and a cricket oval for sport or kite flying
Close to great walks at Lamington NP
CHEAP! 13.50 maximum for a family ($5 per adult, 2.50 per child)

Wonderful weekend and highly recommended :+
