Columboola, QLD

Columboola is a small community offering a outback style holiday experience at Columboola Country, with camping, caravanning, cabins and group function facilities, just east of Miles on the Warrego Highway.

One of the favourite activities of guests at Columboola Country is fishing in the permanent creek. A number of deep holes are to be found along the creek, populated with native species including yellow belly, jew and cod. The creek itself is located only a stones throw from the camping grounds and cabins.

The beautiful rock hole is a mere 30 metres from the camping area. A tranquil recreational venue, it is surrounded by native vegetation and populated by native fish and crustaceans. Running directly off Punchbowl creek, the rock hole is an unpolluted, unspoilt, naturally occurring waterhole. Used by Aboriginals many years ago as a food and water source, it is still appreciated today – especially on those hot Queensland summer afternoons!

Columboola is also the location of an outdoor education centre for school groups. The complex has a wide range of facilities for outdoor recreation.

Town facilities are available 14 kilometres away at Miles.

Glasshouse Mountains

The Glasshouse Mountains in the hinterland of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast are actually the cores of 20 million year old volcanoes. The sides of the volcanoes have eroded away leaving only the hardened rock spiremountain cores we see today. Learn more about this awe-inspiring landscape.
