Camping 4hr from Brisbane - Not Beach


Would love to get some advice on a few places to go camping just out of Brisbane, we are looking to do a one night or possible two incorporating some of the mountain valleys etc, place for some soft off roaders to get to with a little bit of challenge to keep things interesting. We have a few kids in party as well, some of us have generators and fridges so don't need powered site etc.

Any advice on some great places that are scenic and provide some swimming etc would be great, thanks in advance

hell its not like you are short of choice.

Somerset park...boating fishing
several other dams within the circle have camp sites.
Binaburra, has camp sites......ya wanted mountains....the road up the front is all bitumen but plenty twisty..depending on the vehicle, how game you are and the road condition at the creek road is an interesting drive......most of the time in a proper 4wd its a walk in the park and most soft roaders will get along it with does get beat up from time to time..for get it in the wet.

There is a whole pile of stuff along the border between beaudesert & queen mary falls

several 4wd parks..

depending on the vehicle..bribie, sunshine coast beaches.

You really are spoilt for choice! Start with checking out some of the many reputable published guides like "Camping Guide to Queensland" by Boiling Billy Publications. This one is available from ExplorOz Shop or any camping shop. It will give you plenty of places to start with and give ideas of areas to explore further. Lynne

Gordon Country, out Warwick way.
Its big and if you are self suficient you can get away from the bulk of the crowds, there is some 4wd'ing available and lots of camp sites on the creek.
If its wet the main track to the more isolated spots can be fun.

We are spoilt for choice living in beautiful Brissie.

A little further out (you said four hours)....Nindigully....west of Goondiwindi....really outback camping, free camping beside the Pub and you MUST try one of the big burgers.....but be warned when I say big I do mean BIG.

Google Nindigully Pub to see what I mean.

I have done loads and loads of camping / caravanning much closer to home but just thought I'd suggest that, its the out limits time wise but way way different to anything closer.

Girraween, Sundown (Southern end), Bald Rock and Boonoo Boonoo National Parks are all spectacular and quite accessible.
