I go there several times a year PJ, I like it a lot but others I have mentioned it to have not, so who knows??

It is a small campground set fairly close to the road (not fenced) but in a lovely rural setting. Have seen a whole field of cabbages planted in a weekend and watched another lucerne field being harvested at night.

It is set beside a small school as well and with industrial bins so there is often quite a few of the locals dumping off in them. Saw one guy one time dump what looked like a perfectly good lounge there.

Great pub 20 klms back up the road towards Laidley PJ. I personally never had a bad experience there and will continue to go back regularly.

Cheers Gypsy...

Sounds like a good people watching spot.

Not so much as people, more rural activity PJ. I love the smell when the lucerne is being cut and baled.

It can sometimes get pretty busy on weekends so if you can get there during the week it would be better.

Thank you Gypsy. That looks a nice country spot,I think it would only be about a two hour drive if i took the toll road.Takes my flat mate 2 hours to get to Towoomba he said. I have a week off in November before the christmas rat race starts.Have three days off every second weekend might just head up to Canungra for the next one.

November will be getting pretty warm out there PJ, not much in the shade dept. And yes the flies will be starting to get pretty heavy by then as will the moths and mosquitoes, so be prepared.

I was out there in the latter part of November last year and the flies were dreadful and the moths even more so.

The group turned all our lights out but we were still bombarded by moths with the amenities lights.

By November the numbers of people will be on the decrease as well, so that won't be a problem for you.

Cheers...

I am going to check out the Gorge in a few weeks. probably early October so if you want to wait until then it may be another option for you PJ.

There is always AD Park, it is always nice at any time of year.
