Peach Trees

I have enjoyed birding at Peach Trees over the years so hopefully we find good birds this time. BBButton Quail used to be there but not now. I believe there is a site close by where they may be found. Yabba Creek runs beside the park and platypus are quite often seen there.

The National Park camp site is well kept with 2 toilet blocks but no showers. You will need to book a campsite through the National Parks website.  Campsites are not numbered. I plan to camp down the far end near the second toilet block where there are some nice sites.

I would appreciate an SMS or email to let me know who is coming.

Directions:

From Kilcoy take the Kilcoy Murgon Road north towards Murgon. Just past the Jimna turnoff look for the Peach Trees Access Road heading off the northern side of the road.
Follow this for about 3 kilometres to the campground.
