Possum Park Miles Queensland

Camped at Possum Park

I went to the Information Centre at Tarooma asking where to camp and was told to visit Possum Pak at Miles. It was actually a few kms before Miles as I drove along and Possum Park was certainly a delight. My first impression was a wonderful garden in the dry country and meeting the friendly owner was enlightening.

Possum Park lies nestled in 360 acres of tranquil bushland, 20 kilometres from Miles in south west Queensland.  Now know as Possum Park, Kowguran Explosives Depot was a World War 2 ammunition dump located 20 kms north of Miles in Queensland. The property was bought to be used as a storage area but the owners soon realised the potential for converting it into accommodation units and Possum Park was born.

Camping is $10 in unpowered and $15 in powered. There are great toilets and showers and a well equipped camp kitchen with barbecue areas and shaded shelters with fresh water and hand hewn tables and seating. Every night a campfire hosted by a staff member with a wealth of local knowledge creates a friendly meeting place. I cooked and shared a damper on the fire and everyone is very friendly and happy to chat and share experiences. http://www.possumpark.com.au

The owners purchased a Qantas aircraft which is currently being renovated into an apartment. There is an old railway train, Kowguran, also converted into a library, reading room and games area as well as accommodation. The surrounding garden and grassed areas provides a relaxing environment and playground for kids and adults.

I particularly enjoyed the birds and the green grass and the trees and the walks. It is a tranquil home away from home and a sanctuary for the traveller on the road.
