Murphy’s Creek Escape
Murphy’s Creek Escape, (originally known as Murphy’s Creek Camping Park), was carved from vagrant vegetation that existed on a 50 acre block on the banks of Murphy’s Creek in the 1980’s. Murphy’s Creek Camping Park operated for some 15 years before being closed by its original owners.
Peter and Lisa Souter purchased the property in late September 2009. A year’s worth of work resulted in the creation of a beautifully grassed, creek-front camp ground with a growing clientele.
Fourteen days after their first anniversary, the 2011 floods hit South East Queensland. It inundated Murphy’s Creek Escape resulting in the creek line camp ground being washed away and the road and culvert leading to the property also disappeared.
The property closed for three months to repair the grounds and again carve out the ‘Escape’ in time for its Easter reopening.
Today, Murphy’s Creek Escape is a natural bush campground, featuring a seasonal creek, natural swimming hole, rock pools, bird watching, camp fires, powered and non powered sites as well as a host of adventure activities for the outdoor enthusiasts.
For something a little more glamorous, beautifully furnished Serengeti safari tents are available for adults to enjoy the surrounds and serenity.
Come and enjoy the many natural attributes of Murphy’s Creek Escape and forget about the hustle and bustle of the world. Minutes from the highway – a million miles from nowhere!
