It's not cold, it's refreshing
There's nothing our family loves more in summer than freshwater swimming. We visited a great little spot today within the Cedar Creek Conservation area. The water was refreshing and the location was the epitome of serenity.

Rodbourogh Park is easy to miss if you are unfamiliar with the region. It is tucked away beside a small carpark immediately before the bridge on Beaudesert Beenleigh Road.

The creek itself is a very short stroll from the car park, surrounded by thick, leafy bushland. Stunning mature trees, thick vines and rocky embankments set the scene for family adventures.

The flow of the creek is ideal for families with children of varied abilities and interests. Sections with calm and shallow water allow for rock-hopping, exploration and splashing. In sections with deeper water, more capable children can enjoy wading or simply floating around on an inflatable tube. Of course, it is always advisable to check the various depths before allowing children to enter.

We spent approximately forty-five minutes frolicking in the water followed by a lengthy play in the shallows and surrounding bushland. In particular, the children loved gathering rocks and sticks and creating imaginary campfires and other assorted structures.

We also discovered a sturdy vine growing in the shape of a swing. This too encouraged imaginative play, as the children pretended to be monkeys hanging from vines or princesses swinging in an enchanted garden.

A bin is provided to discourage littering, but unfortunately, there are no toilet facilities on-site.
