We have found a bit of secluded camping paradise on the Sunshine Coast that you are going to fall in love with! I grew up as a young tacker on the Sunshine Coast knowing Bodie Weir. Bodie contacted me about 8 weeks ago to let me know he, his partner Sarah & her parents had purchased a rundown campground on a 300 acre cattle property based in the Sunny Coast hinterland town of Imbil. Always one to love trying a new campground, Kerri & I made the effort to head on out & experience it for ourselves. To see what we got up to, here are some great pics & a rundown on what we thought.
Brooloo Park Queensland was so good we have been twice in 3 weeks! If you love nature, seclusion & you want to travel only 50 minutes north of Maroochydore, this place is for you! Bodie has a big task ahead of him to clean the place up & already it is starting to look amazing (you’ve done so serious work there guys!).
I don’t know about you, but the busier I become with so much technology engulfing my daily routine/ work environment, the more downtime & seclusion I require when I go camping with my family. Living this busy life means we have less time to go camping & therefore we want a closer camping destination. The problem we all face with dense town living, means we have to travel further & further to get that remote natural camping environment that we crave. I simply don’t understand camping on top of each other! Who wants step out of their own tent & have to step over the neighbours (complete stranger) guy ropes? Not me!
That’s what I loved the most about camping at Brooloo Park. There is not a campground within an hours drive of Maroochydore that you have your own piece of paradise….. it’s unique! Infact if you book a site… it’s solely yours – the nearest camping neighbour is 200 mtrs up the creek! On the other hand, if you wish to camp with other friends & family – each site will take a considerable amount of other tents – camper trailers & caravans (yes, you read that right… caravans!)
Brooloo camping park is a working farm & that is part of the attraction for the kids. You can feed the pigs, sheep, chickens, horses & even fish. That’s right there are platy of fish to be caught in the creeks but just remember – Brooloo Park is a sustainable campground & it is catch & release.
The old dairy has been covered to hot showers & each campsite has a basic long drop toilet. Firewood is available on request & if you forget something the town of Imbil is literally only 5 minutes away. The service is amazing, the campsites are picturesque, the waterways are calling for a kayak to be put in, dogs are welcome & it’s all right on our doorstep! I can’t recommend Brooloo Park Queensland enough.
Being such a new business for Bodie & his partners family, they haven’t got a new website up & going as of yet. (The old website has been shut down).
