Mt Barney Lodge never fails to deliver. This was our third year with 6 other families and we had a great time. We booked both camper trailers and the other families set up tents around our trailers. Innes and Tracey are wonderful hosts and very accommodating. They share a wealth of knowledge regarding all adventures around the Scenic Rim. This trip we had some of our younger members of our group doing the beginner rock climb for the first time. Cameron was great with the kids. (Tracey's Lemon Meringue Pie was a treat with hot chocolate up at the climb). The older teenagers of the group did the Golden Staircase Abseil and were not disappointed with the event. Once again Cameron was on hand to offer his expertise in the activity. As parents of the boy's we were able to trek in with them and watch the abseil. Once again our younger children did the night adventure.... the scream from the group at the start is the sound of pure enjoyment by the participants. We had 5 nights at the campsite and the kids always looked forward to the toasting of marshmallows each night around the campfire.....as well as some spooky stories. Lot's of space for the daily game of touch football in the camp site as well. The amenities as usual were very clean and tidy. Rubbish is collected each day from the campsites. We had daily visitors also... a kangaroo, goanna and the possums at night. Once again we thoroughly enjoyed our trip away. Thanks Innes and Tracey
