We stayed three nights at HIGHER GROUND HOMESTAY and used it as our base to explore Emerald and The Gemfields in Central Queensland.
Higher Ground Homestay is a property which the owners have opened up for bush camping. It is a very peaceful location and only 15 minutes south of Emerald.

A few kilometres south of Higher Ground Homestay is Lake Maraboon (Fairbairn Dam). A beautiful spot with plenty of picnic tables and barbeques for public use. The lake is well stocked with red claw too apparently!
