We arrived at about 3.30pm friday afternoon, it took about 1hour from Buddina. I would suggest going via Eumundi, don’t be tempted by google maps to go via Mapelton/Obi Obi as there is a section of the road that is gravel and with a pretty serious windy decent that is signed no for caravans and trucks over 10 tonne (learnt this the hard way). The property has signs visible from Eumundi Kenilworth Road. The drive in from the road to camp grounds is fine for 2wd’s, my sister was in a mazda3 and it managed all the dirt roads, depending on where you camp you may need to leave your car and walk a short distance.
It was great talking to the owners of the dairy and getting their perspective of the Australian dairy industry. Our heart really does go out to all of the farmers that are doing it tough. It would be a hard decision to make to open your property and have hundreds of people sleeping in your backyard every night.
