Hi Ben

I haven't personally stopped there.
Many friends and family members have.
Nothing but good feedback from them.
$22 for a powered site for 2 is quite reasonable.

It is on my 'to do' list and I have spoken with the owner, Dallas who was very pleasant.

I have only ever been as a day visitor when we took a group of kids fossicking for thunder eggs, but the camp area looked good, clean amenitites etc. A great base for exploring the mountain.

I have decided to do a recce in the near future and will post pics (if able) and comments if that is of any help.

I have a girls weekend planned for there shortly, so I'll be interested to hear any updates.

My first camping trip (when I got back into it taking my wife and kids) was at Tambourine about 3 years ago.

It was behind the complex that has horse riding, pub, thunder eggs etc. From memory there are two camp sites run by different people in the same area. As you go in there is one on the right and we stayed at the one on the left - that runs by the creek.

It was pretty busy time but very enjoyable. We backed onto the creek which was very nice. A lot of rocks for the kids to explore on.

Facilities where good from memory. For some reason I can't remember much except that it was a relaxing enjoyable time.

OK guys I did a recce to this campground today and my personal opinion is that it is not for me.

If you are used to overcrowded second rate caravan park style camping with fairly small sites then it might suit.

I did take some pics and will post them as soon as I can manage.

I might also add that Pam (owner) was very pleasant and obliging but sorry to say we (group of 4) find it unsuitable for us.

Watch this space for pics.

BTW, it is a bit difficult place to find as well, you actually have to go in past Thunderbird Park to get to it

They also require a $20 deposit at time of booking for each site booked. There was a set of rules up on the wall saying no refunds but am not sure if this applies to deposits or just campers leaving early.

Tried to post some pics but that option no longer seems to be available from within the forum, sorry to say.

When I checked to see what I can and cannot do at the bottom of the posts it appears that I cannot post attachments. Interestingly, I also cannot delete my own posts either.

Bit of a backwards step!!
