The Creation of Murphys Creek Camping Park
Murphys Creek Escape, (originally known as Murphys Creek Camping Park), was carved from vagrant vegetation that existed on a 50 Acre block on the banks of Murphys Creek in the 1980's. Murphys Creek Camping Park operated for some 15 years before being closed by it's original owners.
The Transformation to Murphys Creek Escape
One years tireless work resulted in the creation of a beautifuly grassed creek front camp ground and a growing clientel.
The floods of 2011
14 days after our first anniversary, a very large flood hit South East Queensland. It inundated Murphys Creek Escape, resulting in the creek line camp ground being washed away and the road and culvert leading ot the property also disappeared.
We closed for three months only to eventually open the doors to the most amazing response from the public. Volunteers and helpers came from everywhere to lend a hand as we again carved out the Escape from a very rough canvas.
Today, we have a magnificent camp ground and some of the most amazing customers to heve ever frequented a camp ground. The park is maturing every day with grass cover returning, new tress growing and the facilities expanding all of the time.
So, welcome to this unique location, please come and enjoy the many natural attributes of Murphys Creek Escape and forget about the hustle and bustle of the world. Our home is your oasis! ENJOY!
