The Sunshine Coast Hinterland is home to many treasures. And surely none is more spectacular than Conondale National Park. It’s packed with deep gorges, waterholes and falls, abundant wildlife. And it’s only minutes from Kenilworth. Visitors can swim in the stunning Booloumba Creek, or camp on its banks. And then spend days hiking the 54km Great Walk. It’s just incredible!
Nearby is another camping experience that offers something a little different. Kenilworth Homestead is on the banks of the Mary River and is a campers’ paradise that also welcomes day-trippers. There are powered and unpowered sites and plenty of activities to keep the kids happy including canoeing and kayaking, bike trails and plenty of farm animals to meet.
Each weekend Kenilworth Homestead hosts a massive Argentinian inspired BBQ put on by Terra Firma Dining. Various meats and vegetables are slow-cooked over a fire pit and served to guests for lunch. Many guests make a day of it; coming early to watch the chefs in action, then enjoying the food with a picnic and live entertainment. Terra Firma Dining also offers cooking classes where guests enjoy a day at the homestead, help tend to the fire, cook up the food and enjoy the fruits of their labour for lunch.
