The Duaringa Stringy Bark, known to the Aboriginals as 'Budgeroo', grows up to 10 metres tall and has bushy foliage with small white flowers that bloom in spring. These trees were of great cultural significance to the early Aboriginals who used its bark to make rope, baskets and building materials. Visit the park during the day to enjoy a picnic lunch under the shade of the Budgeroo. Or camp over night. Take a walk through the Duaringa township along the historical trail, a detailed map can be collected from the visitor information centre.

Pity you are prevented from expressing a view by the drongos in WikiCamps office, who play god and delete what they don't like. Autocrats. I spent $150 on fuel n $67 on groceries. Could have waited till Rocky but chose to spend here. Last time I'll do that.



Just stay for a few nights, peaceful. Great place for younger kids they have a small playground. Showers are nice and hot. The toilets are clean. On the move again.. We stayed a few nights at Duaringa campgrounds it was very peaceful and free hot showers. Josh caught up with us at Duaringa and now off to Emerald we go.. Mount Isa here we come..Donation is required it just keeps the town going. BP truck stop has nearly anything you want..



Come on everyone leave a donation....every $ helps keep this gem of a camp open. Apparently only about 30% of people donate. Bet you all use the clean toilets..showers...dump point and take the drinking water.
