Try the Noosa river upstream from Harry's hut.
Fishing might be the problem being Cooloola National Park. :o0

Suggest you have a look at the western beach of Moreton Island.

There are a number of designated individual camp sites on the western beach between the wrecks at Tangalooma, and the public camping area at Comboyuro.

We've often camped at the sites on the beach - you can always go to the camping areas for a shower or to fill water drums.

Why don't you make it an ExplorOz get together and we will all go on your honeymoon. Imagine what you could tell the grandkids when they come along. Just imagine all the advice you could get on 4wd, equipment and "other" things.
Good luck to you annaridley, hope you have as good marriage as I have after 46 years.

Thats a great idea for an EO gathering in October.

Wadda you say guys, you can then give EXPERT advice on not just 4WD issues.

The mind boggles.

This post reminds me of the post late last year about another honeymooner wanting to know how to stop a roof top tent from rocking LOL

This is one of the best posts for a long time.

I hope you have a memorable honeymoon and a wonderful marriage for the rest of your lives, but don't, I repeat don't, tell anyone here where that honeymoon is going to be, for your own sanity.

Good luck Guys.
Colin.

Phew - nothing worse than going on a honeymoon WITHOUT your own facilities :-))

Well, there are stages in life. No good pretending I'm young and good looking (those words were never applied to me) any more.
I was asked what my job was the other day and I said unemployed D.O.M. :))
My kids are single and older than I was when married.

My wife reckons I'm almost an angel...so I check for rat poison in all my meals :))

Hi All

My Cook & I had a camping honeymoon, at Maroochydore Council
Camp Ground, in 1969, we had a 1964 EH Holden Station Wagon,
which I reversed into the 12x12 tent, we slept in the back of the
wagon. I remember while we were there, we had a Severe storm one
night, I was standing in the middle of the tent holding the centre
pole so the tent wouldnt blow away I was in my under pants,
Lifes Good.
I hope you have a wonderful time where ever you decide to go, and
have some wonderful memories.

Cheers
Daza.

If you want some seclusion then Sandy Cape at the top end of Fraser is a good spot. Plenty of good fishing and very few people, just the odd fisho out of peak times. Need to be fully self contained as there are no facilities at all.
This side of Fraser the sea is very calm too and suitable for a kyak.

G'day John,

seclusion... hmmm ha ha, we thought we had found a secluded beach on the Freycinet Peninsula on our honeymoon. I checked and checked, no one in cooeee. But, right in the middle of "the activity" this bloke appears from nowhere, rowing past in an old timber boat only 25m away. Must have been a local fisho checking his pots I guess. We just froze, bleep ourselves laughing as we tried to blend into the sand and orange rocks.....errr....I was on top. Geeeeeeeeez.

well, thankyou everyone for your replies. LOVED them! very interesting i didnt know anyone would reply let alone 20 of you. okay so maybe now i can be a pain in the butt because i wasnt too specific last time. we would like rivers and waterfalls and swimming holes over beaches weve done the sand thing and well it hurts. lol. umm also mainland anywhere within 6 hours of brisbane but not near gladstone thats where his family lives and although i love them it is a honeymoon so thats a no go. umm any other helpfull hints things that arnt usually thought of?? we spent 3 hours in boating camping and fishing on the weekend and got some great ideas the only thing they cant help me with is secret off road beautiful camping spots and of course camping tips from people who do it all the time and are members of explorOZ P.S this is the best site i have come across i never expected so much help! so im hoping i can get just a little bit more out of you all.

Friends of ours went on a camping holiday to Kangaroo Island.
Arrived off the ferry in the dark and found a nice quiet place.
Woke in the morning to find themselves in the Kingscote rubbish dump!
