Canungra Camping

Thursday night we decided to go camping. We had no reason, we just had a free weekend and wanted to get away. How very spontaneous of us! The weather has been perfect so Friday night we packed up our stuff and hit the road Saturday afternoon with our babes.

We had no idea where we were going. Beach or bush, we couldn't decide. We ended up here... 

Beautiful Canungra

Sharp Park is a gorgeous little camp ground situated amongst the gorgeous hillsides of Canungra and Beechmont. Situated on either side of the Upper Coomera river, this quiet, pretty and very welcoming camp ground provided the perfect little getaway for our weekend camping trip. We chose a spot away from the river as we wanted to watch the sunset behind the hills. We camped underneath a gorgeous little willow tree and the sheep and kookaburras playing in the fields beside us ensured we really got that 'bush camping' feel. We didn't take much as it was a last minute decision and a 1 night affair, so the simplicity of the weekend was exactly what we needed after our big week. We spent the night beside the fire and slept in the back of the ute in a swag. It was perfect! 

Our sleeping quarters for the night! Yes it was a freezing 4 degrees!

The park has beautiful blossoms all around! My favourite tree!

On our way home we stopped off at the gold coast for a walk along the beach! A bit of beach and a bit of bush! A perfect weekend getaway!
