  • This is a small town with a pub, shop/cafe, school and railway station used once a year; between Withcott and Highfields/Toowoomba. The best part would be the Murphys Creek Escape camp grounds 4 kms s...  more »
  • Was a bit disappointed that we had so much trouble finding this place it wasn't very well sign posted and had to stop and ask at the pub, you need to travel all the way through town out the other side...  more »
  • A few things to visit in Murphys Creek, old general store, old train station, old cottage, the pub has just re-opened and has a good vibe about it now. You should try it.

  • Great overnight stay with my son. Heaps to although we missed the activities due to arriving late. Maybe some late afternoon activities woukd be good. Kids loved the bird feeding. Massive sites, good amenities albiet probably could do with a few more due to amount people staying and limited showers. Overall great experience, friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely be back.
  • Great place to go to, a real escape from everything. People where great, went to check in and we where put on a powdered carava ask to swap for unpowered camping spot and they where more then happy to help, the area we had was a big space heaps of room and had some trees to set our swags to. Lots to do there and just a great time.
  • More shower and toilet facilities required during peak times. Had to wait 30 minutes on 2 occasions for a shower to be available. Didn't help that some families were gaming the system and ferrying up to 6 kids to and from the shower while one parent stayed in the shower. Organised (and paid) activities such as archery was good, however many of these were booked out. There are much better campgrounds in the SEQ region.
  • We took our two dogs along as the grounds are advertised as pet friendly, definitely not as pet friendly as they advertise. We were walking our dogs through a rocky area where there were small hot algae filled areas of water, certainly not anywhere I would enjoy a shallow dip, we were then yelled at from the house to get our dogs out of the water. I understand that they are not allowed at the beach area only which is fine and we abided by this but I also saw plenty of dogs in the water at the front of the camping grounds where the cliff is. When we decided to do some exploring, we were told that the land belonged to a shire and we would be prosecuted for trespassing if we went back, extremely rude considering we didn't even get a word in and perhaps some signage might help around these areas! We were also charged more upon arrival than what was quoted over the phone. Originally we were asked for full payment which is unusual for camping grounds, eventually they let this go. Aside from this, the campsite we were at Remote 1 was beautiful, great size and view, only problem is that two of the other Remote campsites are very close. Whilst we loved our campsite we wouldn't bother again due to the way we were treated.
  • Lovely place to stay. Plenty of camping areas and great activities.
