Lake Moogerah (July 2013)

Lake Moogerah

We did not follow the GPS all the way - and rather turned off left from Cunningham highway at the first sign post we came across on The Cunnigham Highway that pointed to Llake Moogerah . Note we could not find Lake Moogerah in GPS so chose Moogerah instead. The signage is not that great to get you to the caravan park. A couple of parties on our trip took the turn right to the dam wall itself. They then had to back track to road, turn right and then proceed to the caravan park turn off .

The caretaker cabin is just in front of a boom gate which requires a personal pin.

The caretaker sells ice , bread , ice creams , soft drinks , sun screen and a few basics. There is also Motor boat and kayak hire.

Nearest proper town is boing where we went for coffee on the second morning . Which was a Saturday . What a lovely little town. I enjoyed a fresh cream bun at the local bakery which was excellent . A coffee from across the road was also very good.

The caravan park sits on the edge of the dam . The views from everywhere are beautiful. This really is a surprise .

Some of the vistas are as good as you see on the overland track in Tasmania.

On the Saturday afternoon we went for a drive for the dam wall. Across the dam wall you can enter the mount peters national park . From the other side of the dam wall it is a 3 k walk to the look out.

At the dam wall there are public toilets and barbecue faculties .

The caravan also has shared use BBQ microwave kettle and toaster.

Boonah also features a camping store which sticks excellent quality gear with brands like lonely planet , keen shoes , they can pretty well set u up with everything you need for hiking or car camping. Below photograph of the 6 tents in our group with a central mess area.
