    Doctors Creek Campground

    February 20, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Just a few kilometres south of Jamieson, are two excellent campgrounds. We have stayed at Skipworth reserve in the past because Doctors Creek was closed for repairs and upgrade.

    Now Doctors is open again. Camping beside a mountain stream is pretty neat with the sound of babbling water in the background.

    There are lots of birds. A large group of satin bower birds, probably females with last seasons brood. No sign of any males though.

    The little wrens were hopping all around and even came very close into our camp. We stayed very still and enjoyed the moment.

    Dozens of king parrots were here eating the many apples on a tree near the creek.

    The crimson Rosella's were here as well as others including the tree creepers.

    The weather has been quite pleasant. Temperatures during the day have been around 30 degrees with the night getting almost cool enough for a light jacket. Jamieson is quite elevated though, so one would expect cooler conditions.
