My wife and I were looking for a quiet bush campsite within 2-3 hours of the Gold Coast - a tall order on a long weekend in school holidays - and we weren't disappointed! Somewhat naively, being a long weekend, we headed into Goomburra Valley without a booking intending to stay in one of the national park campgrounds at the...

Goomburra Forest Retreat (GFR) is conveniently located near the entry to the Goomburra section of the Main Range National park. It's about a 2.5 hour drive from Brisbane, with about 5km of reasonable unsealed road at the end of the journey. There are several camping grounds and 4WD parks in the vicinity.

We just camped for one night but will definitely be back again. Nice big camp sites. We stayed a Saturday night and there only 3 other groups sharing the camp ground. Great amenities with hot showers. Nice bushwalking nearby. Friendly managers. Highly recommended.

Unlike surrounding properties there are no yobbos, loud music or generators allowed here to interfere with your enjoyment. When we were there our neighbours were respectful like-minded campers who appreciated the...

We stayed there during the Easter weekend and of were very impressed with the grassed camp sites and shower and toilet facilities. The small creek was flowing lightly so heaps of kids were in enjoying the water. Get in early for a prime position as this camp ground is very popular.

We've just returned home from a great Easter weekend at this lovely retreat. We were given plenty of space for our large group - from large caravans to tents. Some of us didn't have our own toilet or shower and yet despite the busy time of year the toilets and showers were always immaculate - so this also contributed to...
