Fun times with family and friends. Our camping adventure!

It has been over 6 years since our last camping adventure, at Neurum Creek Bush Retreat near Woodford in Queensland. It was with members of our church. Our eldest son was 2 1/2 years old at the time and he loved it. Hubby and I enjoyed watching our son have fun playing with some of his cousins who came along. 

We recently got back from our latest camping adventure. Our family went camping Thursday April 25 and arrived home on Saturday April 27. 

Beautiful scenery

We stayed at Captain Logan Camp at Lake Wivenhoe, near Fernvale in Queensland. Great place to take family and friends.

Everyone's tents set up

This camping adventure was the first time for our 5 year old son and our 3 year old daughter. To say they were excited, is an understatement! We were all excited to go camping!

Our campsite

This time we went camping with friends from church and got to meet some of their friends too.  Our children enjoyed forming stronger friendships and meeting new friends. 

We all had a lovely time relaxing, chatting, eating, water activities, playing cricket or kicking around a football, and toasting marshmallows by the camp fire. The kids had loads of fun playing 'hide and seek' each night before bedtime. 

As you can see, we had perfect weather

We saw birds, bunnies, kangaroos and thankfully no dingoes; apparently they are in the area.
Toilet / Shower building. Cleaned daily. Lots of bins and parking 

I have fond memories of camping when I was a child. Our family used to go camping at least once a year. It's so good to get out in the great outdoor, enjoy the beauty of nature, the wildlife and away from technology. 

Years ago we went camping with family at Carnarvon Gorge National Park, it's between Roma and Emerald in Queensland. Another beautiful place to visit. 

We plan on creating fond 'camping' memories for our children. Doing it on a more regular basis!

Good Morning! Spectacular sunrise with mist on Lake Wivenhoe

As we were away during ANZAC day we would like to remember the men and women who sacrificed much for our freedom.

Lest We Forget

Have you been camping recently?
