Murphy’s Creek Bush Escape Review

Who loves the stars peaceful nights and the sound of nature……well pretty much every camper. Murphy’s Creek Bush Escape is a bush retreat that is close enough to escape the hustle and bustle of Brisbane for an overnighter or in fact as long as you can manage peace and quiet!

There is all the basic amenities you need and they even have powered sites.  The main attraction is of course the creek, which is beautiful and free flowing fresh water.  There is a basic kiosk and the toilets and showers are clean.  There is an obstacle course but is more suited to older kids. There are fire pits and wood available, beware of the cheeky possums.

 

Murphy’s Creek should be put of your to do list, it is close quiet and relaxing (you do get the odd freight train though), it has plenty of room for kids and has multiple sites to suit everyone’s tastes.

  1. We really disliked our stay at Murphy’s Creek in 2014, I’d never go back! The powered van sites we had (had a group of three) had just had a truck load of RED SOIL dumped on them so they were devoid of grass – and we were there a week with about 10 kids. There are still stains that won’t come out. There was no rain (not their fault) and the water in the creek was stagnant and hard to get to for little ones/couldn’t really go unattended. My cousin got an infection from swimming in there. That train, OMG. Not occasional. Every night and it goes on forever. Once you notice it it’s impossible to sleep. Didn’t help that we got 40 degree days and it was hot as hell with no breeze. The toilet block ended up getting blocked and was out of action for a few days and we had to drive to the next nearest one – not easy with young kids and really a pain in the **** when we stayed near it for a reason. In saying that, the kids said it was their favourite place (us adults still don’t get it) but I think because they had planned activities for them, they loved the archery and just being with the other kids. We still joke about that awful week. We camp a lot (around monthly) and it’s the one place that scarred us all! I often speak to others that love it there so maybe we just had a bad week – it was silly to put down all that dirt and expect people to camp happily on a powered dirt site and they should’ve attended to the toilet problem much quicker. If there was rain/running water and not so hot maybe it would be better. Although we made our own fun, there is still nothing to do there for a whole week and we focussing mainly on eating and drinking.

    • I can’t say I disagree with any of that, what a shame they would have lost a few return visitors!!!……i think the powered sites near the kiosk need to be looked at that’s for sure, but I have had a few friends stay in the canyon area and loved it (it’s grassed there)………..maybe astro turf would be a good start to the caravan pads so at least there is some sort of ground cover there.

      Thanks for taking the time to reply 🙂
