Camping at Borumba Deer Park, Imbil Queensland


Borumba Deer Park - Campgrounds

Wonderful weekend away with friends and fabulous time was had by all. Started out a little bit windy and chilly on the Friday but a few hours later it passed and the weather was amazing for the rest of the weekend.

I've been to this park a few times over the years and never been disappointed. It is pretty as a picture and a very well kept.


Borumba Deer Park - Campfire

Campfires are allowed. Wood for sale on site at a reasonable price by the trolley load. Clean toilets and showers, even hot which was good as there were some chilly moments. There is kayaking if you're brave enough to face the icy but beautiful Yabba Creek. You cross Yabba Creek 5 times getting to this campground from Imbil as it snakes all the way along this road.

There is heaps of safe area for the kids to ride their push bikes and run around freely. Pets are allowed on leash only. They are quite strict about this. I didn't see it with my own eyes but I believe there is an off-leash area for puppy to let his/her hair down. It’s a big campground so there is no excuse for anyone to encroach on another. Heaps of birds and other wildlife, as well as cheeky deer’s that are happy to pose for photos. There is a kiosk on site and sells all the standard campground basics. 

The grounds are close to Borumba Lake and I am told the fishing is fabulous. The campground has boats for hire if you would like to take one for a spin around Borumba Lake and see what you can catch. The grounds are only a few minutes’ drive into the pretty town of Imbil where you will find a country pub, coffee shop and a couple of alternative type shops. The old railway line in Imbil doesn't run any longer but it is definitely worth popping your head in whilst you're in town, even if it is just for an nostalgic moment and a photo. I couldn't find the disused rail tunnel but I'm told it is not far out of town and it is easy to find. I just wasn't looking hard enough, apparently.

Caravans are welcome. Powered and unpowered sites are available. There are also onsite Cabins for $70 p/night. It’s all weather and 2WD accessible road into the grounds.

Only $13 p/night p/adult for tent or camper trailer camping. There is a camping fee for man’s best friend and they do charge a $50 Good Behaviour Bond but I have never heard of anyone not getting the bond back so don't worry.

Highly recommend this campground and I will definitely be going back.
