Lovely little town with the best markets around. Friendly people and reasonable prices. Stumbled across this place on our way to Toowoomba. Markets were on Saturday.

Excellent scenic drive as an alternate way from Toowoomba to Brisbane much less traffic and you can enjoy a break at Spring's Bluff Railway Station on the way.

The camp grounds promote a creek but this was only a small water hole not fit for swimming. The place was a dust bowl. The bathroom facilities are in need of serious maintenance. There were people leaving earlier than their booked stay which speaks for...More

Drove to Murphys Creek via Spring Bluff to see the Carnival gardens. Was not disappointed. The gardens are a credit to the curators.

We went to enjoy a nice weekend of camping and activities. The activities were great but at night went to cook and there was only one working BBQ for the whole camp site. Still a good experience but bring your own grill.

This was the most difficult place to find it was ridiculous. I couldn't even enjoy the drive because there is absolutely no signage of where to go what so ever. Honestly incredibly disappointing. It really was not worth the frustration.

The drive to Murphys Creek and Spring Bluff wasn't as pretty as scenic as I'd hoped - pretty ordinary really. I'm sure Spring Bluff train station would be very pretty in spring, but not worth seeing in April - flower beds are bare. Much more...More
