Canoeing (B.Y.O. Canoe)
Lots of fun can be had with canoes (even when the creek is only trickling). For the enthusiast, you can travel around 2km up Delaneys Creek from the Wallaby Waterhole, or over 1km north in Neurum Creek from the Platypus Pond (the creek is subject to seasonal rise and fall so check with us prior to bringing your canoe).
The all time favourite of the kids, the "Shady Waterholes" are great for water fun and exerting energy. (Parents must supervise their own children.)
The waterholes are subject to rise and fall over the various seasons.
Bikes (B.Y.O. Bike)
There are approximately 2 kilometers of roads within the retreat, plus many tracks for riding. (Helmets and road rules apply to all.) Enthusiasts can venture into D'Aguilar National Park (Mt Mee) and visit the rock pool waterhole quite easily by bike. In addition to our normal roads, we have a bike track where hours of fun and tonnes of energy will be put in by the kids!
Dog Friendly Camping
Neurum Creek Bush Retreat is a dog friendly camping site and you are welcome to bring "Fido" along as long as you observe a few fundamental rules. Dogs must be kept tethered or leashed at all times whilst in and around the campground. No dogs are permitted to enter the amenities blocks or office/shop. Please use dog hitches. Dog owners must remove, pick up and dispose of any dog droppings in plastic bags and place in rubbish bins. Owners are responsible for any damage caused by the dogs and you must control barking at all times.

All are putting on a show at different times throughout the year.
