Woodgate Queensland Veterans Camp

Gregory River at Woodgate

Approximately 15 minutes’ drive from Woodgate, lives a pristine place called Camp Gregory Veterans Retreat. A place for all serving, ex-service personal, veterans, first responders from Fire and Rescue, Ambulance, State Police services and their families to camp, relax and get away from it all. The facilities are free for all of the above and include camp sites for caravans, motorhomes, camper trailers and plain old tents. Amenities include flushing toilets, hot showers and fresh drinking water. Situated on the Gregory River with access to fishing, crabbing and boating.

Camp Gregory is located about 35 kms from Childers. You take the Bundaberg road and turn off to Woodgate, and the Veterans Camp is well signposted and you follow the directions. There is a non tarred part that is sandy but I was able to drive to the camp comfortably in my campervan. There is a camp manager who will meet you and direct you to where you can park your vehicle, and show you the available facilities including the open kitchen, dining area, toilets and showers and the river.

Veterans are also able to stay in dongas or small cabins which are self contained, and this was popular with the motor bike group who appreciated the warm bed as against a tent. There is no shop, and you must bring your own food or catch fish or crabs or dinner. Veterans approach the Communal area around 4pm to share the fire, a beer and some comradeship. Many old stories are exchanged and shared during the evening socializing, and after dinner most retire to their own rooms and nights are quiet and peaceful after the glorious sunsets and Moonrise. There are volunteers who work on the property and are regular visitors, and veterans are welcomed into the community when they arrive to stay.

The location is very beautiful even in the dry season. The river winds through the property and there are areas next to the river where you ca settle down with a fishing rod or a book just to enjoy the location. For those wanting to walk and hike, there are walking tracks and secluded places by the river to enjoy. The area is rich in birdlife and the town of Woodgate is a short 15 minute drive away for supplies.
