The Race Track at the Kilcoy Show GroundsWell I really have to apologise for not blogging sooner,I suppose you think I was having too much fun, but in my defence I have not been well . Some dreaded wog and I can’t stop coughing. We have been to Kilcoy and we are now in Caboolture and have been here since Thursday 17th June. We arrived in Kilcoy from Warwick on Monday 7th June and booked into the Showgrounds in readiness for the HF Radio Get together and their AGM. The camping here is $15 per night including power and water. The maximum stay is one week. There is also camping right in town at Anzac Camping Grounds for the same price but the stay is limited to 3 nights.
The Jimna Fire TowerAt 47 metres tall it is the tallest tower of its type in the Southern Hemisphere. They are trying desperately to prevent the firetower from being pulled down. Jimna and the surrounding state forests are popular for four wheel driving and camping.
Some of the local residents at Peach Trees Camp SpotWe checked out future camping spots at Peach Trees and The Overflow.
Somerset DamWe also drove out to Lake Somerset , The Spit and Somerset Dam.
Somerset Lake from Camping GroundMany water skiing enthusiasts enjoy Lake Somerset for weekend getaways. Impressive camping areas are available, while the Spit offers great picnic and BBQ facilities for day visitors.
Somerset Spit Day AreaAs I said earlier we arrived in Caboolture on Thursday and are camped in the Caboolture Showgrounds for $100 per week or $20 per week. I will talk some more on that later.
Talk again soon
