    Easter 2013 - Camping

    Ok, I know it seems like Easter is a long way off, but it is late March this year, so not that far away

    Are any of you Brisbanites up for a camping trip north again, would be good to catch up

    I was thinking that we could either do Wongi Water Holes again or somewhere different

    Another option, that would need an early decision to ensure spots, and a bit further for me to drive is the deer farm at Imbil.

    http://borumbadeerpark.com/index.html

    They have a great spot right on the banks of Yabba creek, and I am sure if we booked early enough, we could get them to reserve one end just for us

    There is no power down by the creek Jules, but you can have a fire, they supply the wood, you just have to carry it to your camp

    It is, or was a beautiful spot last time I was there

    It really is a nice spot, I was there in September (Fishing at Borumba Dam). I am hoping I can make it but unsure at the moment as i have some personal issues to deal with.
    Will keep an eye on the thread though. The wood is available but is not free anymore ($10 / wheelbarrow load)
    Regards

    CC Always welcome as its a great way of Learning

    Ok, so the Deer Farm is a no go, they are fully booked and suggested that if we wanted to camp there in 2014 that we would need to book NOW or risk missing out.

    So back to the drawing board

    Suggestions anyone

    Do we want bush or beach ??

    I have been looking around and anything remotely popular, beach, is booked out.

    We could do Baffle Creek - http://www.bafflebobs.com/

    otherwise we find something in the bush, maybe Wongi again, I am happy with that
