Fishing for the best place to take your boat or camper trailer for a weekend? Well, place both hands on the rod because you’re about to reel in the catch of the day! We’re calling it, Lake Somerset is the BEST place to go for all you Queensland campers. We’ve chosen it because of the never-ending list of adventurous activities on offer. 


TIP: Make sure you and the kids get a good night’s sleep before you go because you won’t want to waste time stopping longer than to take a breath while you’re there.

You’ll be surrounded by lush bushland, stunning wildlife and if bird-watching tickles your fancy then feel free to pack your binoculars because Lake Somerset is renowned for their birdlife in particular.
