We went to enjoy a nice weekend of camping and activities. The activities were great but at night went to cook and there was only one working BBQ for the whole camp site. Still a good experience but bring your own grill.

This was the most difficult place to find it was ridiculous. I couldn't even enjoy the drive because there is absolutely no signage of where to go what so ever. Honestly incredibly disappointing. It really was not worth the frustration.

A few things to visit in Murphys Creek, old general store, old train station, old cottage, the pub has just re-opened and has a good vibe about it now. You should try it.

Businesses and residents of Murphys Creek area are very friendly and helpful. Lovely countryside and good food at local store. Place to relax and unwind away from suburbia living.

This is such a pretty hideaway- only 25 minutes from Toowoomba CBD and you feel like you have got away from it all. It is peaceful, the 'beach' is a surprising find- provided there has been enough rain. We have not been for a few...More
