  5. Barambah Bush Caravan Park

    Hi One & All Robin and I use the road down the middle from Emerald to all points South to avoid the highway traffic and have often passed through Murgon without stopping. I would appear that we now have a reason to do so. Neither KOG or I have any affiliation to or connection with the following. I have been to their website and it will be in my next trip planner. I would appreciate any feedback from members who have already stayed there or when they do so. Good Morning Rick and Barb would like to introduce ourselves to the Caravan Clubs of Queensland as the New Owners of Barambah Bush Caravan Park in the South Burnett Region. We would love to meet you and we are offering a special deal for February 2017 where you stay for 4 nights and only pay for 3 nights. We have Powered Caravan and Camping Sites($29.00 per night), Unpowered Caravan and Camping Sites($24.00 per night), Drive Through Powered Sites($29.00 per night) and can cater for Big Rigs. You can even “circle the wagons” and enjoy a Campfire or cook up a storm on our free Gas BBQ’s. Our amenities are spacious and spotless and our Camp Kitchen is well equipped. Our Park is set on 40 acres of Parkland and 160 acres of Bushland, where you can explore the abundance of wildlife or just relax in our peaceful setting. We are on the Barambah Wine Trail, where you can experience the outstanding wines of the South Burnett from five of our local Wineries, and we are only 6kms from Bjelke Petersen Dam if you would like to have a fish or just enjoy the water. For further information please feel free to call us or visit our Website: www.barambahbush.com.au Rick and Barb Parke Barambah Bush Caravan Park 332 Borcherts Hill Road Murgon QLD 4605 E: barambahbush@burnett.net.au Phone: 07 4168 1085

  9. I added an aluminium checker plate to the rear of my XC3 earlier this year. A great addition for storage of snatch strap, trolley jack, camp ovens, firewood etc. We used the existing rear bar mounting, extended the shs and inserted a tight fit smaller shs which went right through the existing and extension. Not only did I get great storage but took 85 kg off my ball weight. Photos of the box before & after fitting are below We clocked up some 11,500 km earlier this year including some really rugged roads through the Gawler Ranges to & from Mt Ive station and Lake Gairdner without any worries at all, Have checked all mountings and supports and still as fitted. Only problem was condensation when in the deserts mainly. Really only two options insulate or vent. After much research I opted for venting as in the pdf file attached. Problem now solved and looking forward to our next getaway early January. Cheers Mike Locker Venting.pdf Eclipse - Rear Storage Box Feb 2016.pdf Eclipse Rear Storage Lockers.pdf
