About Us

Gordon Country is located on the Darling Downs in the Goomburra Valley. It is a private family owned eco-tourism and farming property offering camping, glamping, cabin & caravan stays in pristine bushland – just the way Australia used to be! Our property borders on the Great Dividing Range in SE QLD and incorporates stunning native bushland and large beautiful reaches of rain forest in the World Heritage listed Main Range National Park at Goomburra.

Our camping and accommodation locations have been lovingly chosen by the Gordon family to allow guests to experience the natural beauty of their wonderful surrounds in privacy and peace with spectacular views of the Great Dividing Range, Rainforest and Creek sites.

Offering authentic family and pet friendly getaways, there are a myriad of ways to explore the freedom of Gordon Country. With kilometres of 4WD tracks and walking trails adventure can be built into every day or you can simply stare into the open campfire and enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery Mother Nature can provide.

Our uniqueness stems not only from our location but also the sheer size of Gordon Country. There is no designated camping at Gordon Country leaving you the freedom to choose a campsite in over 4000 acres of pristine land that is situated along side the Dalrymple and Banshee Creeks.

Staying at Gordon Country also means you are perfectly located to visit the Gondwana Rainforest in the Main Range National Park. Enjoy walks, waterfalls and scenic drives through landscapes millions of years in the making and discover the unique plants and animals, and ancient landscapes that make this place a UNESCO World Heritage Area—180 million years in the making. The sub-tropical rainforest in the Main Range National Park provides a home for ground-dwelling birds such as the rare Albert’s lyrebird and the endangered eastern bristlebird. In fact, this rainforest contains more frog, snake, bird and marsupial species than anywhere else in Australia and is a home for many rare and threatened plants and animals and ancient life forms.

Being completely switched off from the outside world allows you to submerge and surrender entirely to the environment. The sounds of traffic and mobile phones will be replaced with the songs of birds, the braying of cows and the foraging of wildlife. Stay with us and we know you and your family will go home feeling transformed and reinvigorated by the very environment itself.

A Message from The Gordon Family

The Goomburra Valley was first settled in 1869 by the Gordon Family and 6 generations later we continue our custodianship of this special part of the World. From a traditional farming background, the property evolved into eco-tourism in 1968 when Sue and Ian Gordon welcomed the first campers into the Valley.

Since then the tourism has continued to develop and grow in conjunction with the farming, but always with a sustainable and eco-friendly focus, keeping it ‘The Way Australia Used To Be.’ The farming, cattle and horses, which continue to be a part of the overall enterprise, only add to the genuine country experience and we hope guests feel a part of the experience when they visit.

We look forward to continuing to share this special part of the world with our visitors and guests for many years ahead. We feel privileged to have hosted and created memories for generations of families and look forward to creating many more.
