TripAdvisor Traveller Rating
Based on 7 reviews

Just 20 minutes from the Ipswich Central Business District and 45 minutes from the Brisbane Central Business District, the Hardings Paddock campground is perfect for a weekend getaway for the whole family. Surrounded by natural bushland, there are just eight camping sites - suitable also for motorhomes and caravans - available to add to the feeling of seclusion. While there's no power available, there are some essential creature comforts including toilets, camp-shower cubicles - bring your own shower bag and water - kitchen, barbecues, tables and a holding yard for horses (with access to water).

You will need to bring your own drinking water and with all the activities on offer across the 2,200 hectares of the Flinders-Goolman Conservation Estate you're going to need to keep up your fluids. Recreational opportunities include bird-watching, hiking, mountain bike riding and horseriding - bring your own bikes and horses too!

The camping area at Hardings Paddock is locked at all times. Once your booking is confirmed you will receive a camping permit/confirmation with the combination code to access the campground. The combination code is changed regularly. Check out the website for campground rules, trail updates and to download the trail guide.
