Mt Perry

Drove to Mt Perry today from Biggenden.

Not a lot happening in Mt Perry, small and sleepy.

About 70km with some of it unsealed and seven cattle grids.

Passed one caravan which was going from Mt Perry to Mingo Recreational Reserve and on the way back passed another one going from Biggenden to Mingo Recreational Reserve.

Approaching Mingo  Recreational Reserve from Biggenden

 And three from inside the reserve.

Clean, tidy, run by the local shire. Fishing and boating is catered for but a sign warns about algal bloom, as long as you remove all of the gut of the fish there isn't a problem.

Mingo Recreational Reserve seems like a nice place to stay, $26 per night for a powered site and $10 for a camp site.

The road in from Mt Perry crosses several properties (hence the seven cattle grids) and there is some unsealed roads, but just drive to the conditions, and keep an eye open for cattle wandering around.


  1. Hi Greg, great to check out your blog. I have switched to Wordpress in March.
    I love your map that you have added but I would like to see some comments of campsites you have stayed in. I am heading to Queensland from Tasmania from early July.

    1. I am new to living in a caravan and have only stayed at two freecamps and two caravan parks. I have updated the comments on the map.

  2. Good morning OAP.

    Good to read of your travel and the sites you stay at. From a bird-watching perspective, can you give an idea of the birdlife seen in these location? The only thing bad about being an OAP is that you never get and time off!

  3. Haven't been paying much attention to the bird life so far, but did see a Pacific Baza, actually about four of them, on the Gooroolba-Biggenden Road near Degilbo. My first thought was that they were a big pigeon because of the head crest.

  4. Hi Greg, Looks a great place to just sit and relax. Where is everyone??
