Andrew Drynan Park


Situated in the Scenic Rim near the New South Wales border, Andrew Drynan Park is a popular campsite with those seeking serenity and seclusion; with the added comfort of flush toilets.  

A two-hour drive from Brisbane via Beaudesert, this bush camp is located along the Lions Road Rainforest Way – the Lions Road being a shorter scenic link between Beaudesert and Grafton– overlooking Mount Chinghee and Running Creek.  

Caravans and tents in Andrew Drynan Park camp site

Suitable for smaller caravans, camping trailers and tents, set up wherever you want with plenty of wide-open spaces and tall trees to choose from. With the stresses of city living behind you, swing in a hammock, read a book or swim in the creek. When night falls, light up the campfire and roast some marshmallows then fall into slumber serenaded by sounds of the creek.

If you do feel the need to do something, Border Ranges National Park and the Border Loop Lookout (overlooking the ingenious spiral loop railway line) is only a short drive away, as are the country towns of Rathdowney (Qld) and Kyogle (NSW); the latter hosting a farmers market every Saturday morning.

Need to know: this is camping without convenience. All sites are unpowered, water must be boiled before drinking (or BYO) and there are no showers. Dogs are welcome (on a lead) and booking is not necessary but is advisable at Easter and other peak times.
