Neurum Creek Bush Retreat
Ahh, summertime in Australia. The smell of snags, the hustle and bustle of people heading to the water and of course, Christmas lunch. Before we get to the good stuff, why don’t we take a look at some options for a weekend or extended getaway.
Recently, Mick, Nick and I buckled ourselves into my jalopy and headed north to a great little place called Neurum Creek Bush Retreat. It’s a little over an hour north of Brisbane and we went for their Annual Country Rock and Camp Oven Cooking Weekend.
We were there toward the end of winter so it was still a bit chilly and the fog didn’t lift until about 10 o’clock, but when it did, wow, what a place! Apparently there were 600 people there, though you wouldn’t have known. The park is huge, surrounded by bushland, mountains and cliffs and a nice little creek, which would be perfect for a cool dip in the heat of the day.
Good Enough to Come Back!
It’s fair to say that the 3 of us liked it enough to consider taking our hand brakes and billy lids there for a holiday. A lot of people think when they are planning a weekend away, they need to travel for hours on end. Why? Who knows. But what is known is that some of the best campgrounds are not much further than the end of your street. If you’re lucky enough to be spending Christmas in one, you’re going to need to cook a decent Christmas lunch, one with plenty of leftovers.
