Where abouts is the tree house? I don't remember seeing it. Last time we were there the kids found a very large rock to play on...

Went there once and never stayed. Thought they were just a money grabbing lot. Sorry but how I felt there.

Spent today doing a reccie to Neurum Creek for the first time looking for a spot with our Easter camping crew. It was quite busy there for a "normal" weekend but we liked what we saw and have placed a booking request for a site in Daintree Woods. We walked the whole park looking at our different options but thought it was just a bit quieter up there as we can imagine Easter will be pretty packed there so hopefully this has been a good choice. Lots of water in the creek too which would be good in Summer -- not sure we will be taking a dip at Easter though.

The lady at the office was really friendly and helpful which was always good for a first impression. When we got there she was helping a couple whose pup had a paralysis tick. Apparently these are quite common there from what we hear so will have to keep an eye on the kids and do a bit of educating on ticks.
Interested to know if anyone else has been to Neurum Creek at Easter and whats it like. Have heard they organise different activities too which sounds pretty good.
also thought the prices weren't too bad - cheaper then Goomburra where we went last Easter -- though the site fee and the price for dogs are a bit $$$

hey MDC - wow yeah small world -- thanks for the good advice --- we actually booked D12 the site you were on in the end. Looked right to all of us for the size of our set up and after walking around the whole place seemed it would be a bit quieter there come Easter. Look forward to getting back there next year now. Hope you had a great weekend there

We went easter time a couple of years ago, it was fully booked out but still excellent. They put on a disco for the kids on the sat night, and other activities for them,kids loved it. There were kids everywhere on bikes. Lots to see and do.

The tree house is right opposite site D14.

We didn't think it was too expensive to camp there considering all the activities for the kids, busy, happy kids makes it a nice peaceful camp for Mum and Dad ;)

Great to hear that this place seems to be ok....We were going there with another forum as a group camp,,,,but the management wouldn't budge on the price so the ''tight'' buggers in the group spoiled it for everyone else by refusing to pay full price....So no-one went.
AND....I am enjoying reading of all the things there are to do for the children....after-all,,,If the kids are being catered for it sure takes the pressure off Mums & Dads to have to= then they get to relax as well.... :beer :beer :beer


:cheers

Hi all,

We were also regulars at NCBR we liked the relaxed setting, good general facility and kid-friendly. Something for everyone; campfires, dogs ok, several places for swimming, BMX bikes, etc.

Beware though, they have a terrible wet weather policy - we paid up front ahead of all that rain for holidays to be had just after Christmas 2010 - rang them several times the days before to be told that the camp grounds were "fine". Turned up - what a mess - the causeway and creek were up, the water was rapids; dirty with debris and the campgrounds were really soggy in general. Management need to listen and allow people to use their fees for a return in the future - or at least a portion of it. Instead they pocketed the whole lot! We (and 5 or so other families) were regulars but will not be returning.

Other than that, good in just about all parts. Fantastic until something goes wrong, then management will not want to know you. If you do go , NEVER pay the full amount up front - only the minimum deposit - because you will never see your cash again if you have a dispute with them.

Just my 2c worth, cheers.

How true. We were also there and experience the exact same thing.

hey folks

we're gearing up for Easter now - off to Neurum Creek for the first time for a week so all looking forward to that and only 2 weeks away. Just rang them to ask about a dump point there but apparently they don't have one and the nearest is in Kilcoy or Woodford. Asked if we don't use chemicals can we just dump in their drop toilets but apparently thats a no no too. Though not sure why as surely its the same as just doing it straight in the toilet anyway! and we're only talking about number 1's . We normally don't worry about porta potties but one of our Easter crew stayed there last weekend and had a dirty great snake crawl across the path at night coming from the toilets and I don't think our kids are going to be too fussed on walking up there at night.

Be interested to know what others do at Neurum Creek - do we just bite the bullet and keep them happy and take it to Woodford or Kilcoy to dump and just not bother at all?? Our crew there last week saw people emptying containers in the morning so do we just do it and plead ignorant?
