Hardings Paddock

Ipswich

Hardings Paddock is an exclusive scenic picnic and camp ground that is surrounded by bushland, just 20 minutes from Ipswich CBD.

Not only does its proximity to the CBD make it unusual but what makes Hardings Paddock truly unique is that there are only 8 camps sites and it costs nothing to camp here.

While the sites are unpowered there are camp shower cubicles (BYO water) and state of the art gas BBQs, undercover camp kitchen and picnic pavilions and the well-maintained expansive green ‘paddock’ has quirky country features including a rotunda and an old windmill.
