Camp Duckadang

Camp Duckadang

Camp Duckadang is on the upper reaches of the Brisbane River. It is owned and operated by the Lions Club and is well set up. A camp kitchen is available with barbeques, fridges and seating in a large rotunda. There are also tennis courts, a 9 hole mini golf course, swimming pool and fire pits.  There are powered and unpowered caravan/camping sites as well as bunk style accommodation with up to 4 people per room – and plenty of bathrooms! There are a couple of rooms with double beds.

Costs: Sites are $37 per night for up to 4 people per site. Hard accommodation is $37 per person per night.

Bookings: We have a group booking on behalf of Birds Queensland.

Please email Penny or Helen if you wish to attend so we can forward additional information to you.

Payment:  Please bring CASH to the camp to pay for your chosen accommodation.

As this is our final camp for 2022, we hope it will have a festive air.  To this end we will have a shared evening meal on the Saturday. So please bring either a salad or a dessert to share. We would also like to have Kris Kringle, so bring a little gift to the value of $10 if you wish to participate.

How to get there: Well, of course, that depends where you are coming from! So, head to Moore on the D’Aguilar Highway. Assuming that most will be arriving from the southern end of things, turn right (north) onto the Linville Road just before the bridge in Moore. It is clearly signed to Linville and also to Camp Duckadang. Proceed for about 18km. Turn right onto Avoca Creek Rd  (Avoca Lane on Google Maps). Duckadang as about 1 km along. You will know when you have arrived!

Please then report to their office so their staff can direct you to your accommodation.

Note:  There is no fuel available at Moore or Linville. Closest fuel is at Colinton (Liberty) which is about 5 kms southeast of Moore.
