Our Bush Camp sites are intended for guests who want to enjoy the Australian bush.   For this reason we limit the numbers we admit to our bush camp areas.  Our bush camp areas are not intended for large groups who want to have a get-together for a celebration or reunion, etc.  The tracks to our bush camp sites were initially constructed to enable mules to drag timber down from the mountain.   The tracks to our camp sites wind above precipices where the drop can be as much as several hundred metres.  These tracks were never designed as roads, and if used as roads these tracks are very dangerous – especially in adverse weather conditions.  (For example a vehicle sliding sideways in wet weather could easily disappear over a 100 metre precipice).

Our internal roads are completely safe for walking, but because of the danger if driving a vehicle, we seldom permit four wheel drive access to our walking tracks and the hinterland of our property.   Vehicle access to these tracks is permanently locked off.   All of our Lake Maroon Holiday Park guests are welcome to walk up the mountain and explore our bushland, which comprises some 220 acres - but don’t make a booking for a bush camp site on the assumption that you can drive your vehicle on these tracks or drive to your bush camp site.

Bush Camp Site 360 degree view

Take a break from the city

The tracks on our property are over 100 years old.  They were built to enable mules to drag logs cut from beautiful Ironbark and other gums to the road from where they could then be transported to the mills.

If you want to experience the real Australian bush, then this is for you !

Walking track to top of property and cave---->

Our Bush camp-sites are ideal for back-packers, who can carry their gear with them.   Our normal procedure is that upon arrival, we take our bush camp guests and their luggage up the mountain in our UTV to their bush camp site, and upon departure we bring them back down the mountain.  In wet weather our roads can become slippery and dangerous for vehicle traffic - even for our UTV.  Under these circumstances walking is obviously the only option.  The bush camp site closest to our main compound area is bush camp no 2, and is a 15 minute walk.   The camp site most distant from our main compound is bush camp no 4.   This site would be a 30 minute walk up or down the mountain.  The idea of this web page is so that prospective guests can get some idea of what our bush camp sites and our walking trails are like.  Our park encompasses 220 acres.  Opportunities include camping, photography, rock climbing, bush walks, viewing wild life, and just generally exploring.    The hinterland of our property has many steep slopes and cliffs.   Our Bush Camp areas and walking trails are therefore not recommended for families with young children.

These photos are typical of the various roads and walking trails and vistas to be seen on our property.

Guest vehicles are usually not permitted in this area.


All Holiday Park guests have access to our walking trails and the mountain slopes of our property.   Many guests enjoy rock climbing, bush walking, photography, and simply admiring the many unique views which are afforded by the spectacular landscapes of the Scenic Rim area.


Guests can enjoy our park without a 4WD vehicle.  

4WD vehicles are not necessary for guests to enjoy our bush camp sites.  Most of our bush campsites are only a 15 minute walk up the mountain, and we take guests and their gear to and from their site in our RTV (at no cost). 



We limit the numbers of bush campers we admit at any one time - generally this number limit is four guests per party.


Our bush camping is intended for smaller groups who want to savour and enjoy the unique experience of camping in the beautiful Australian bush with magnificent views spread out below them, completely isolated (except for CB radio contact with the park owners, Vicki and Brian), whilst at the same time having handy access to Lake Maroon if and when they feel like it.



The site is isolated, and offers superb views of the lake and surrounding countryside. 

The lakeside is no more than a short walk.  Because of the height, phone and computer reception is normally good.

As can be seen from these photos, the ground in this area is slightly sloping, but reasonably flat areas can be found.


























Tree Tops Bush Camp Site

This is a unique camp site which is suitable for people who love the Australian bush. The site is isolated, and completely surrounded by beautiful trees - mainly spotted gums and ironbark. This camp site has easy access to many of our enjoyable bush-walks. In addition to birds, other wildlife is mainly koalas and kangaroos.







































Lake View Bush Camp Site.  

This is a camp site which is isolated, and which is approximately a 20 minute walk from the park entrance.   This site enjoys spectacular views of Lake Maroon in the distance.   The site has easy access to many bush-walks.  This is a large camp site which is mainly flat.   This camp site is large enough to accommodate two parties, with each party enjoying good views, and having a good degree of privacy from the other.











Bush Camp Site No 360

This is our most popular bush camp site.   It is only a short walk to our main compound and the camp kitchen, etc.

A 4WD vehicle is not necessary for guests to enjoy our bush camp sites.  Most of our bush camp sites are only 15 minute walk up the mountain, and when required we will take guests and their gear to and from their site in our RTV (at no cost).

This is an unusual site because it offers a virtually 360 degree view - comprising the Scenic Rim mountains and lake. 

The site is a very large site, comprising both sloping and flat areas.

The lakeside is no more than a fifteen minute walk. 

As with our other bush camp sites, because of the height, phone and computer reception is normally good.

But be warned: this particular site can be subject to very strong and unexpected winds which seem to come from nowhere, and which can be typical of this mountainous area at certain times of the year.

















Bush Camp Site No 4


This is a very large and isolated site which offers magnificent water and countryside vistas.  The lake can be seen in the distance far below.


This is a sheltered site which is generally flat.  The size of the site is a little smaller than a football field.   


The lakeside is approximately a thirty minute walk.


Because of the height, phone and computer reception is normally good.
