Women on camping
Are you a woman on their own who likes camping? Are you a single mum who likes to take her kids camping? Do you have pets that you like to take camping with you? Teresa's place at Sth Nanango, Sth Burnett, is just the place you are looking for.
Teresa is located in Sth Nanango, 10 kms out of town on the road to Maidenwell. She has a quiet, wind-down, relaxing place, very safe and not visible from the road. Teresa and her friend Sue live there with their two wee dogs who will be in a fenced house yard. Come for one day, come for 10, your choice. Just call Teresa and let her know you are coming. There is plenty of space. Plenty of room for the children to ride bikes or play cricket etc.
Teresa's place is for women only. You must be self-contained as there are no amenities available. No power, no wifi, no toilets and showers etc. You are welcome to use your own generator as long as you respect others by keeping your distance. You can have your own campfire or use the firepit near the bush hut. But you must bring your own firewood. The bush hut has a camp table and seating. Great for meetups. There is a gas BBQ there for your use.
There are many places of interest in the area. The Maidenwell hotel is not too far away. Built in 1913, it's an iconic feature of the town. Meals are available along with a Seniors discount. 2 km from Maidenwell is the Coomba Falls with a swimming hole and beautiful granite cliffs. However, during dry times the falls may not be happening, but it's a lovely picnic spot.
Historic Nanango is nearby with their huge markets on the 1st Sunday of the month. The famous Bunya Mountains are not too far away. Great place for bushwalking. The Bunya Mountains Community Markets are held on the last Sunday of every month from 9am to 2pm. Enjoy over 20 plus market stalls with locally grown produce, homemade products, arts and crafts.
If visiting wineries is your thing, there are several in the area, some with 1st class restaurants. Kingaroy is only 20 min away (ask Teresa for short-cut directions). There you will find the famous peanut van. Visit the tourist information center, located across the road from the famous peanut silos. From there, you can visit their excellent museum giving you a visual of the establishment of the local peanut industry along with many other points of interest. Their art gallery is also part of the same building.
It's a great idea Jeanienne. A safe haven for those that it caters for and seems very safe for children in a nice setting. The amenities may be basic, but would be educational to young ones to experience 'roughing' it.
