I have just returned from a wonderful 3 night, two day adventure weekend with trekking buddies at Mt Barney Lodge. If you like a bit of trekking adventure on the weekend Mt Barney is equivalent of packing a week into a weekend. Day one was a day hike through the lower portals and glorious few hours of rock hopping. Sunday...

Beautiful place on your own, with family or friends. Quite, billions of stars at night. Photos of Mt. Barney in early morning are pure "gold". I have stayed here twice now - one by car the other by motorcycle. 3 Klm dirt road a bit difficult by motorcycle, but interesting. Source of the Logan River is still running strong..

Our first visit to Mount Barney Lodge - I wish it could have been longer. Great weather and I just loved the peace and tranquility, no phones, no TV, no business of the hectic lifestyle we usually live with. Just sitting by that beautiful creek was amazing!! We stayed in Forester's Hut and made use of the open fire place...

Thanks for your review Barbara. Perfect weather at night during a full moon is one of the most stunning times to visit Mt Barney Lodge - and you had the bonus of live acoustic music too it seems. All of our Outdoor Leaders have current certification for the activities they lead, as well as hours of experience and a genuine...

I was going to speak to you, Innes, on our departure, while we were in the office paying our fee, but you chose to answer the phone and take my money at the same time and you didn't ask us how our stay was... so here it is. Beautiful grounds - however during our 3 night stay, the cows mooed...

Hi Karen, Thanks for leaving your feedback on Tripadvisor to explain your disappointment with the noise level at Mt Barney Lodge during your stay. We always have time for customer feedback at the office, and try very hard to connect with and understand our guests while they are here. It was unfortunate that the timing of your visit fell between...

Amazing location with plenty of space for camping, excellent facilities and friendly staff. What more do you want? We had a wonderful week relaxing at Mt Barney Lodge. The kids loved the challenge of the rock climbing and hiking to the Lower Portals. We shall definitely be back.

We have had a busy run with the back-to-back Easter holidays and long weekends, and it is great to hear that guests in this time still got a sense of relaxation and space. See you next time Jo ;)

We have been camping at Mt Barney for 3 years in a row now during the Easter school holidays and generally camp with 3-4 other families. The camp ground is beautiful, lots of grassy, open space with a magic creek, swimming holes, and superb bush walks. The facilities are fantastic and always kept very clean. There are never too many...

Best week holiday we have had. Heaps of space and even at capacity felt like our own private campground. Owners and staff are fantastic. Kids had a ball in night activities. Creek was heaps of fun and not too cold. Facilities always clean and nice hot water. We will be back.

Picturesque camping ground with lots of trees, gorgeous creek with swimming holes & clean, well kept facilities. We camped with two boys under 4, they loved the space, the creek & being able to visit the horse. They were also encouraged to be involved in the 'Nature play - I'm a free range kid' program.

We stayed for a long weekend and the camp was really quiet because of a lousy weather forecast that never materialised. The ground was flat and firm and water not too far away. We chose to set up as far from the amenities as we could, but it was still only a few minutes walk. The amenities were spotless though...

Mt Barney Lodge is in the rain-shadow of the 1359m mountain, which means that rain often goes around us. So when rain is forecast, or if it is tipping down in Brisbane or the Gold Coast, we can get minimal rain. I think weather forecasts are often inaccurate, and mobile phones and weather apps have caused campers to be overreactive...

Great location and pristine upkeep - they even had fresh flowers in the bathroom daily. Awesome spot for families. Good area, reasonably close to local pub for a camping ground, and also has plenty of bush walking tracks, including one with an epic creek which was refreshing to swim in during the summer (and a large rock to jump off!)....

Thanks for your review Megan. The creek is a huge drawcard in the summer, and the waterhole on our property has just been recharged from the recent rain. Loving it!
