Camping first week in January - SE Qld

Postby JenM » Thu Aug 20, 2009 1:56 pm

Hello, this is my first post - I have been reading this forum for a few hours now(!) Great information - Thanks!! :)

As the title suggests, I am looking for somewhere within 3 hours of Brisbane to tent camp in the first few weeks of 2010. Our criteria are not too crowded (is that possible in Jan?)/showers and loos/open fireplaces/swimming/canoing maybe....

We have previously been to Elanda Point, Booloumbah, Amamoor.
Have heard good things about Peachtrees, Island Reach, Point Warning at Murwillumbah.

Would love your opinions about these parks and comparisons to any others that fit the bill.

Thanks, Jen

Hi Jen and WELCOME to the forum. Glad to see that you have found the info here interesting.

Island Reach is my ticks all your boxes. One thing that you might want to rethink though is campfires in the hottest part of the year.....don't think that will be high on your agenda in Jnauary, you'll be more likely to be trying to get away from the heat....not trying create more.

Borumba Deer Park is another option but may be a little busy for you. It is quite a large place though.

Kennilworth Homestead is another option and whilst I have not been there myself I have friends who visit there regularly.

Might be a tad difficult to find somwhere secluded at that time of year with all the ammenities you have mentioned. I would hazard a guess and say the beaches would be fairly busy so maybe somewhere in Nth NSW may fit the bill. A friend mentioned a place called that may fit the bill but it would appear that a $wd is necesary to access the camping grounds and it maybe a three hour drive from Brissy. Good luck with your search.

Please sir, Can I have some more? Time off that is.
