Gordon Country

Private Campground - Queensland


Gordon Country, set within the beautiful Goomburra Valley, boasts 4,000 acres of pristine and natural land and is home to an abundance of wildlife, freshwater streams and creeks – just the way Australia used to be!

The property features kilometres of scenic 4WD and horse tracks, or if it’s an exciting hike you’re after, set foot into the wilderness and explore the best Mother Nature has to offer.

Gordon Country is also a working cattle and horse station providing loads of fun for the kids and older visitors alike.

Just two hours from Brisbane and the Gold Coast and one hour form Toowoomba or Tenterfield, Gordon Country adjoins the spectacular World Heritage listed Main Range National Park that overlooks the Gondwana Rainforest. Set amongst mountain peaks, escarpments and ridges are Daintree like rainforest walks, waterfalls and lookouts – adventure and excitement is never far away at Gordon Country!

Whatever your preference of accommodation from camping, staying in a cabin or caravaning, Gordon Country offers a wonderful way to experience some of the best scenery Australia has to offer. While T&Cs apply, we are one of the most flexible and welcoming accommodation options in the area, so get in touch to learn more or to book.

Our main features:

  • Unlimited size and space
  • Dogs and horses permitted 
  • Hours of four wheel driving and bushwalking tracks
  • Hot showers and septic toilets

If you love to simply pitch a tent and ‘rough it’ for a weekend, or you prefer the comfort of a powered site – it’s all here at Gordon Country. Enjoy Goomburra Valley’s beautiful natural landscapes, from lush rainforest to bush, large grassy plains, and pristine, freshwater creeks.

If you don’t have a 4WD or you require the convenience of facilities close by, we suggest The Cottage Site that has 22 powered sites. Look out for the first lot of camping signs that are approximately half a kilometer down the gravel road. The Black Cockatoo Site is a further kilometre down which is also a great option if you have a conventional car.

If however, you really want to get away from other guests, and have a porta pottie, we suggest Bull Hole, Banshee Junction, the Festival Site or Bowerbird. These are all well marked and on the creek and easily accessible even if you don’t have a car suitable for going off road.

Campsites which offer facilities include:

  • Cottage Camp Site – hot showers and toilets plus disabled shower and toilet. Our site office and Shop is also located here.
  • Banshee Valley (first flat)- septic toilet block
  • Black Cockatoo – hot showers and toilets
  • Festival Site – septic toilet block.
All of the above are accessible by two wheel drive vehicles. Please note that all campsites are within one kilometre of toilets and/or showers.

Best Sites for Caravans:
  • Cottage Camp Site

  • Bull Hole

  • Black Cockatoo


Whether it’s a family getaway, a long weekend with friends or a romantic escape for two, Gordon Country’s six cabins offer something for everyone. Cabins are beautifully situated in mountain areas with Dalrymple and Banshee Creeks flowing near-by.
When you’re not enjoying the stunning view from your private balcony, choose from a bush walk, or try your luck and throw a line in one of the near-by creeks.

All cabins are serviced by an exclusive central ablution block where you’ll find hot showers and septic toilets. Each is uniquely designed, capitalising on the landscape’s beautiful scenery, with most featuring a ‘Queenslander’ style large balcony, rustic interiors and comfortable Balinese style furnishings.

The cabins offer a real country experience, with no electricity and no mobile phone reception. This will be a complete escape from all the trappings of a modern day world! Get the kids away from the TV and gaming console and enjoy the blissful silence of no phones!
