First fully loaded trip to Glen Erin Bush Camp – QLD – $25

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Going on a first trip

We had to stay in the Whitsunday for a few more weeks due to work commitments but wanted check out other places. We looked on Wiki Camps and found Glen Erin Farm stay and Bush Camp. Only 30 min North or Proserpine and 10 min South from Bowen.

We had a drive to check it out with some friends and decided it was our kind of place.

There was a resident Kangaroo, green grassy areas, Camp kitchen and BBQ. So the next day we put everything, for the first time, in its proper place and hooked up for our first fully loaded trip.

Please Note: Glen Erin is under new management as of 2022

Glen Erin has a home made wooden sign on the side of the highway, by a dirt track. You drive about 4 kilometres over a railway track. Then past eucalyptus trees, Mango trees and over dry creek beds. We were a little worried in case another van came in the opposite direction, but I’m sure we would have been fine.

Lyn, the owner greeted us when we arrived and so did the Kangaroo. We decided we would have a powered site for a change which was $25 a night. Although we were only going to stay 2 night we decided to stay 4 more.

The place has pockets of rustic charm along with its bush setting. Like the old caravans that must have been permanent residence at one time, now quaint rustic relics. Personally I love them.

There’s an old windmill slowly being taken over by nature. Theirs also a book exchange in the camp kitchen on an old 60s/70 dresser its like a time warp.

Black Cockatoos are in the trees over head, cows (as we were driving in) Stick insects, Cane Toads, Butterflies and of course a Kangaroo. There are many Eucalyptus trees, beautiful red Poinciana trees and Mango trees.

Lyn told us she was closing camp as she was going away over Christmas, for 3 month. She had booked a couple, with a caravan to look after the place while she was away. They would stay for free, if they feed the chooks and mow the lawn. We wish we had known about it, it would have been great.

It was time for us to join a house sitting website. Following this we did join Aussie House Sitters. Our house and farm sits have been fantastic.
