Holidays are dam fun for kids
WINTRY days are a distant memory for holidaymakers who have hit Leslie Dam these school holidays in search of sunshine.
Yesterday the waterside hotspot was bustling with families looking to enjoy a few days of getting back to basics.
Washpool Camping Reserve manager Peter Guy said people were heading outdoors to make the most of the first warm school holidays since Easter.
"It's going well and September is always busy because it's the start of the warmer weather," he said.
"People are coming from all over the place and we have had visitors from Brisbane, Gatton, Dalby, Toowoomba - all over the place.
"They are swimming, skiing and the fishing has been really good with heaps of yellow belly."
Mr Guy said that not only was camping an affordable holiday option but it was a way for families to make life-long memories.
"I saw something the other day that said the holidays people loved the most as kids were camping trips and the ones they remembered were the ones where things went wrong," he said.
