The kids and I stayed at SGS about a year ago, Had the place to ourselves. Just as we were packing up a horde of tourist surrounded us heading to the creek. After having nothing but peace and quiet for 48 hrs, this was like walking straight into the city :-). Great place and will definately be returning.
been awhile since I have been on this site but just wondering if anyone has stayed at Spring Gully Stays at Easter and what it was like then. Do they pack 'em in? I went for a drive this morning to have a look but the office was closed and no around to ask any info. Is it a first in best dressed for peak times or do they allocate sites at all. Doesn't look too bad a place and the reports sound positive in the posts I've read. Just looking for a place for our Easter camping crew to go (3-4 families). Going to check out Murphys Creek and Yarramalong also in the next few weeks.
stopped in at Canungra and a had a pie at The Outpost while I was in the neighbourhood - seriously good pies there even for the price they were well worth it. will be going back there again for sure. anyway thanks all Wrecksie
Funny you should ask, maybe ring them.. I too had been looking at going here but website said it was $22 a night unpowered??? but talking to some people on the weekend that said there are two sections,the "elite" and the cheap??. Would like to hear what you find out.
The Lord is my shepard,i shall not want......only sometimes.
Not sure where my post on this went....obviously not up here.
There is Bush Camping on the 'other' side of the creek which is the pics I posted earlier. Last time I was there it cost $20 per vehicle. There are portable toilets, no showers and it is pretty much first in first choice unless a club or group have booked a specific area.
Campfires as allowed, BYO firewood.
On the serviced (amenities etc) side of the creek....there was very limited powered sites and I do not know the cost. Think the same applies re where you can camp. There are no structured sites (except for power).
Best thing to do is ring Paul for any specific information and updated costs that you require.
Easter period will definitely be a busy time there....it is a very popular venue and there are also cabins.
Welcome back Wrecksie.
The worst day camping still beats the best day working
thanks all... spoke to Spring Gully Stays and its all booked out for Easter on the side with the amenties. some left on Bush side so looks like that will be no go for us
I have just spoke to Murphys Creek and they are 70% booked out for Easter already (this is why I am planning for Easter now as it won't be long before everything is booked out especially when you are trying to book for 3 -4 families . I'll go for a drive tomorrow and check the place out - sounds good though and all the reports have been pretty positive
will let you know how we go
also have been catching up on the news about this forum and I certainly hope it continues. It has been such a great source of information for me for many years - I would hate to see it go.
Wrecksie....have a look here too, it may be worth considering. I have not been but I know of people who have and they all love it. It is quite a large property so you probably would not have any probs getting a booking.
well we went and checked out Murphys Creek a couple of weekends ago now and it looks fantastic so we have booked one of the Hub sites for our group for Easter. Really nice people running the place and hard to believe what happened through there with the floods last year. Not a whole lot of water running through the creek at the moment though and they tell us they are expecting a hot dry summer so there may not be much going by Easter which is really early next year (Good Friday 28 March). Hoping that it will be warm days though then so we can cool off down at their beach in the creek with a coldie !.
Also they also told us their new luxury onsite "glamping tents" should be up and running overlooking the canyon by January which should be good for those not quite into proper camping.
anyway looking forward to that next year.
On our way home we stopped at the local pub at Withcott for lunch and had the Sunday special -$6 rump steak and chips -- very nice and worth the stopover if you're in that neck of the woods
