Higher Ground Homestay – Emerald, QLD

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!
