QLD - Borumba Deer Park

QLD - Borumba Deer Park

Postby stevo. » Sun Aug 27, 2006 4:30 pm

I went up to Borumba Deer Park for the night as my cousin invited me up to drink beer around a camp fire. It's a pretty good camping ground with spaces for big caravans and you can even drive your caravan or trailer down beside the creek and set up camp. The creek comes down from Borumba Dam and is apparently pretty full so there's a good flow to the creek. They have canoe hire at the park but i don't think you can go too far up and down the creek, probably a few hundred metres but that's probably ok for the kids. ... and there was kids everywhere, i think it's the place to go if you have kids. I didn't see it but they have a big playground there with all the good old fashion dangerous swings and whilry things that we use to have when we were kids. I had all my cousins kids in the back of the ute and we cruised up and picked up some firewood from the supplied free firewood pile. I think it's one of those places that you can do what ever you want within reason ofcorse.

I assume they have deer feeding time for the kids but i didn't pay much attention to that as i was just there to drink beer around the fire.

I would recommend it to anyone with kids that want to go to a pretty safe but carefree place. The creek looked awesome, but is a bit too cold to swim in this time of year.

Took me 1 1/2 hours to get there from Recliffe
$8 a night for an adult ( don't know any other prices )
They have toilets, showers, free firewood

Here's some pics

Excellent , Would recomend it to everyone no matter what age , they have made one of the best camping grounds we have been to. The kids really enjoyed it , playing in Yabba Creek, watching the Platapus , riding their bikes, movies for the kids twice a day and camp oven cooked meals.By the way they have a herb garden for campers to use as well . The amenities were alway clean due the the system they use , plenty of hot water even in peak times . Firewood supplied , large sites , tank water available , plenty of bins (not far to walk ) and very friendly management .

I did rain but it didn't stop kids having fun ,riding their bikes through the puddles and mud . Mum wasn't real happy though.
