Where to take the family camping at Easter?
Camping at Easter time is a great family escape. Having wide-ranging national parks, enormous chunks of state forest and hundreds of kilometers of striking coastline guarantees Southeast Queensland’s camping options are remarkably infinite.
Have you ever considered hiring a few items to make your family or group camping trip that extra bit more comfortable or exciting? How about a mobile cool room a marquee or even organising your very own fireworks display. The possibilities are really quite endless.
Now back to camping destinations. A couple of places that are really good for family camping trips in Southeast Queensland are:
Location On the Queensland – New South Wales border, 250 km south-west of Brisbane via Stanthorpe and 70 km north-west of Tenterfield. What’s special? Sundown is a rugged wilderness area of spectacular sharp ridges and steep-sided gorges. The Severn River and its tributaries, woodland birds and remains of pastoral and mining heritage can be discovered via maintained walking tracks, challenging remote walks or the four-wheel-drive (4WD) track.
Location Gordon Country adjoins spectacular World Heritage listed Main Range National Park that overlooks the Gondwana Rainforest just 2 hours from Brisbane and the Gold Coast
What’s special? Gordon Country is an eco-tourism property bordering on the Great Dividing Range and incorporating large beautiful reaches of rain forest. Having been passed on through generations, we operate in a sustainable manner working in harmony and synergy with nature and the magnificent countryside we treasure and the heritage we are proud of. We offer an authentic family friendly rustic getaway like no other, where children can explore the freedom of the Australian outback and adults can revel in adventure activities or just relax and unwind. And yes, your beloved pets are always welcome! With kilometres of 4WD, biking and horse tracks – adventure is definitely built into every stay but if hiking or fishing is more your style, pack up your back pack and put on your walking shoes to enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery and tracks Mother Nature can provide, AND, catch one or two for dinner!
Location Bigriggen Park is situated in the Scenic Rim between Boonah and Rathdowney in the foothills of the Scenic Rim’s Mount Maroon, with Mount Barney and Mount Lindesay nearby. It’s just 90 minutes from Brisbane or the Gold Coast.
