Located in the south of the Brisbane Ranges, Fridays Campground is a great base to explore the historic gold mining area of Steiglitz Historic Park, hunt for orchids and other wildflowers and plant communities that make this park famous.
Fridays campground is popular with walkers - it's one of the trail heads for the 3-day 40km Burchell trail - and is great spot from which to explore on foot.
There are 10 campsites in total, 2 of which are suitable for suitable camper trailers or caravans. Each site can accommodate a maximum of 6 people. All campsites are unpowered and there are communal fireplaces and picnic tables throughout the campground, as well as non-flushing toilet facilities.
