The Camping Trip was short but fun. We camped at the Bjelke Peterson Dam North West of Brisbane. There was wine tasting Cheese Tasting  a visit to the lavender Farm The Dairy Museum. Purchased some VerJuice,Butterscotch Liquior and real Lavender oil and Incense Stick ,cheese . All the Nice stuff . The idea of a Barbie (thats not the doll ) was to tempting .It was  heated up and some steak and Sausages cooked together to eat with the salad and Cheese was yummy.The wine.. Heaven!!.. The nights were cold but in the morning we were visited by the Magpies for breakfast . As usual they do the camp rounds to see what they can gather up food wise . The local people were friendly making it a really nice place to stay  .We also visited Boondooma Dam further west again approx 60kms.As we approached the lookout a mother Kangaroo and her baby were sitting quietly. I was quite surprised as it was really only mid afternoon  We also visited the Aboriginal town of Cherbourg.It was fairly self sufficient town but alcohol restrictions .. I have to say a relaxing trip. It is very dry but the the olives and peanut groves gave a green background..
Hope you enjoy the Photos
