“Fantastic weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

Had a lovely weekend with friends in the camper trailers. Kids loved the creek and went swimming, despite the cold. Relaxing around the fire looking at the fantastic view was a perfect way to spend some time. The meal on Saturday evening was excellent! All in all we had a great time!

My partner and I booked 2 nights in a deluxe camper trailer. The scenic drive to get their is spectacular and the accommodations are fantastic. The camper had everything. All you need is food and bedding and its just a short stroll to the amenities. The owners made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. A couple of nights by the campfire with veiws to Mt Barney, beautiful walks throughout Mt Barney National Park is just what we needed. This will be a place we come back to often. Thanks Innes and Tracey for your hospitality.

Room Tip: When booking a camper trailer ask for the one at the end. It has the most spectacular view of Mt Bar...

This was our 4th Easter at Mt Barney and has now become a tradition for our group of craft enthusiasts. We love sharing our time with Caitlyn, who has become a very talented and inspirational artist - she gives us all encouragement and advice and I'm sure she will become a budding artist in her journey of life. The Boat Race organised by Tracey & Innes, is not only a chance to explore their beautiful property for suitable products to use in constructing our boat, but a fun time to mix with the other campers and enjoy their company. Rathdowney Show on Sunday was also lots of fun and reminds us what country hospitality is all about. The only activity we missed this year was our hike, so we're hoping to climb Mt Maroon next Easter.

Room Tip: Booloomoola has 3 beautiful bedrooms so perfect for our group of 6. One of the rooms is perfect for...

What a wonderful setting, at the base of Mt Barney and near a lovely creek ideal for rockhopping. Hosts were very friendly and helpful.

As always the stay was fantastic. Adding a couple of extra days to the usual easter creative stay was just what was needed. Relaxing on the verandah taking in the sights of Mt Barney what better to spend our time. Joining the other guests for the annual boat race was the highlight of Easter Sunday and we came in second place. Looking forward to next year.

What a glorious Easter!
Fabulous weather, excellent surroundings, exciting events shared with fantastic friends. It was so wonderful to catch up after being away for more then 18 months. Oh the withdrawals!

Who would have thought that there were 100 people staying there? It was only at the annual eco boat race down the Baby Logan River that we met up with everyone!

Innes, Tracey and the team have a wonderful tradition for looking after their guests and I know it will continue for a very, very long time!

Room Tip: Check the website for weather conditions as the temperatures can vary greatly.

This homestead at Mt Barney Lodge was a perfect spot for our large family gathering. The accomodation was clean, cosy and well equipped. The large verandah provided a beautiful area to relax and look at the view. All our email enquiries were answered efficiently by Nea who also provided plenty more information regarding bushwalks on our arrival.
We will visit again.
