Only 1 ½ hours from Brisbane and 20 minutes from Toowoomba based at the foot of the Toowoomba range, this camping oasis is the ideal spot to relax, unwind and escape the worries of the world. Take your time to explore the area, take a dip in the seasonal creek, BBQ or picnic, relax under the trees with a book, cook a damper and spin a yarn around your own camp fire, or simply enjoy a beverage on the lush banks of Murphys Creek.

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.
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 and a growing clientel.
Fourteen days after their 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 to the property also disappeared.
They 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 they 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 have ever frequented a camp ground. The park is maturing every day with our facilities expanding all of the time.
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!
