Cob and Co Nine Mile
South of Gympie and just off from the famous Matilda servo sits a new family camping gem.
Power Curve Performance is a proud family business husband, wife, two primary children and the much loved Sally labrador.
Cob and Co are the perfect family camping getaway for our family.
Best known to families all over the Sunshine Coast as the camping destination you will have to enforce the home by dark rule to children of all ages.
The Sunshine Coast show weekend gives Power Curve the opportunity to have some time out with the family and kick things down a level.
Cob and Co take things back to a time as it name would suggest of horsepower of the four-legged variety, bushrangers, nights by the fire and good old fashion conversation.
From the second we pull into our camping spot with the Power Curve TD Auto Nissan Patrol and van the children are nowhere to be seen.
Apart from needing their bikes off the roof rack they can be found on the
- Fort and Slides
- Pirate Ship
- BMX Track
- Flying Foxes
- Walking Tracks
- Billabong For Swimming And Kayaking
- New best friends camp
If that creates an issue and they are not fully occupied… don’t know if its possible however Cob and Co have a range of activities on offer including:
- Free Train Ride
- Horse and Carriage Rides $4 each person
- Nicks Horse Tours – prices vary
- Tractor hay rides
- Cobbs Farm Petting Yard
- Cobb and Co got talent Saturday nights (school holidays and long weekends only)
Power Curve Pick
The Free train ride is a great reason not to run off home on Sunday morning. Yes, it’s free and every weekend.
The train ride is definitely not one to let the children go off and experience on their own. While adults are not allowed to climb aboard the train, the show is worth watching, even for the dads.
The children are ported back to the days when bushrangers were common and catching a train was a sometimes big adventure.
Every child gets to experience the journey as the head off with a gift for the Queen of England.
They have pistols and dynamite for protection as bushranger Nick chases them on horseback until he finally catches them back at the start of the track around the park.
The following skit is full of laughs and action.
For those wanting a little 4wd adventure, the rock pools at Woondum National Park are just 5km away. Remember to pop into Power Curve for all of your pre-adventure suspension needs.
The ladies can venture off the Dingo Creek Winery 4km away
Cooran and Pomona have fantastic Saturday Markets and true country town atmosphere.
