Does anyone know anything about this privately owned property? I have found limited information on the web and also nothing under the places section of this site?

I know it’s $5.50 per night and you are allowed dogs but that’s about it?

Thanks

Yea I did see all them but most of the sites date back to 2006 and I also phoned them but have not heard from them. I plan on heading out there for Easter but don't want to go if the place doesn't exists anymore?

Hi Troll,
We have driven through on the way to Poplar Flats camping ground in Goomburra State Forest. It looked to be busy/popular with various camp areas spread through the property. There was a sign on the roadside to an office where you pay and get allocated a site. I don't know about 4wding or what the campsites are like. Let us know what you find out and if it is worth going? Mike.

From what I have read on various sites it looks really nice out there but I know pictures and words don't always tell the full story but I will put something in the places section if we do end up going out there

I've also driven through it on the way to the Nat Parks campground. It looked nice, especially a couple of creek-side spots that were grassy and flat, and I thought I would go back. Haven't made it back yet.

The Nat Parks campgrounds are nice too, but you can't camp right near the creek and Gordon Country probably offers more variety and secluded spots.

Hi,

Gordon Country is in the Goomburra Valley, there are lots of little nooks for camping and they are spread out nicely. It is real bush camping no facilities. The shop on the way in is where you pay for your campsite. Stay away from the Goomburra Valley Camp Ground, it used to be a lovely place when Dean had it warm and very friendly, it has since changed hands to the most arrogant, rude and obnoxious man god ever put breath into, and as a concequence ppl are now heading to Gordon Country, and I 'm told from the ppl at the shop that they are alot busier than ever before thanks to thier new neighbour.

Gordon Country is a great place to camp -whether caravanning or camper trailering or tenting and they also have some old cottages for rent - which have very basic amenities. My boys and I have been going there since 1990. We were there for big family camp just before Easter last year when it was terribly dry. Should be looking a picture now with some water in Dalrymple Creek. It's a privately owned cattle station. Lots of good walks close by in the Goomburra Forest and 4wdriving - beautiful tall trees, lots and lots of birdlife, hoppies - and extremely popular, especially at Easter.

G'day Troll,

As far as I'm aware Gordon Country is still operating, we drove past the entrance for it two weekends ago when camping at Goomburra Valley Camp Ground and it still had all the signs up.

I would also take the advice from the above post refering to the new owner of Goomburra Valley Campground.
Due to his pig headed attitude we wont be returning.

Cheers.

It is such a shame as Goomburra Valley Campground is such a lovely camp ground with excellent facilities and is so well laid out that it really could have been a great little business. But because of the new owner it has very very quickly become an empty camp ground.

Hi Troll - have stayed there and will return. Quiet bush camping - open forest, camp anywhere (in about 5000 acres); wild life (even a Peacock dropped in to say hello); and customers can use the 4wd track - loop - to the mountain ridges.
Scores a 4/5 from me, but don't tell anyone - prefer to keep it quiet.............................Keith.

My wife and I stayed there last week it is brilliant! We weren't sure what it would be like because there isn't much about it on a google search - we just went. The update post in around-oz site that comes up as second result just isn't current. The rain has come the creek is flowing, the grass is green and it is pure bush camping at it's best (take your own porta-pottie). They do have cabins but they are all booked out for easter 2008. They have a website which is www.gordoncountry.com.au it's only new so it's not in google search yet. Easy to find from brisbane - gps, directions and photos are on the site. Temperature is great - we are going there tomorrow night for Easter! See ya gotta pack!
