A Granite paradise
Foxbar Falls is a nature lovers paradise, hidden in the surrounds of a working vegetable farm outside of Stanthorpe Queensland. From a vast array of bird and plant life, to wallabies and reptiles; from granite boulders and mountains to the campgrounds namesake Foxbar Falls, visitors will enjoy this beautiful place as a break away from the pace of modern life.
Large dams on the property not only provide peaceful views, but allow for a wide opportunity of non-motorised water sports. Bring your own kayaks or canoes, fishing rods and reels, or simply a swimsuit to enjoy the cool Stanthorpe water.
We are currently in drought, and the dams are almost empty. There is still opportunity to enjoy some fishing in Wallaroo Dam, and there is ample water for drinking, showering and cooking.
Follow the website or on social media to see notifications on water levels - we're planning on a huge party when they refill!
Explore the Granite Belt
Foxbar Falls is conveniently located close to the many local attractions and activities Stanthorpe and the Granite Belt have to offer. Visit wineries, breweries, ice-creameries, art galleries, gift shops, Girraween National Park, all within 45 minutes of the campground. Attend the famous Apple and Grape Festival (next in March 2020), or the Snowflakes in Stanthorpe Festival (next in July 2019).
Perhaps the jewel in the crown of this place is the natural flora, fauna and landscape. Walking tracks of various difficulty are marked throughout the farm and surrounds.
The highest point of the property, Mt Ferguson, offers those a little more energetic a chance to build up a sweat, to be rewarded with 360 degree views of the area.
An easy stroll along the dam wall takes you to the base of Sow and Pigs, and large, granite rock (the Sow), topped with several smaller (but still large!) granite boulders (the Pigs). After a strenuous 5 minute walk to the top you will again be rewarded with spectacular farm, dam and mountain views.
Last but not least is Foxbar Falls. With an easy, if uneven in parts, walk from the main camp area, you can enjoy exploring the most wonderous granite formations yet. If the creek is running, and the dams full, the experience becomes magical as the falls come to life.
Something for Everyone
Peaceful strolls, strenuous walks, boulder scrambling, sunrises, sunsets, bird watching, fishing, bike riding, campfires with friends, just being with nature. It's up to you.
