Samford Valley Showgrounds is actually the local equestrian centre as well as showgrounds. We stayed there so we could meet with Deb & Pete who have offered us a house-sit from the end of November to the start of January 2011. They have a lovely 1 1/2 acre property, with a horse, a miniature horse, two cats and a dog (who according to Deb is a moron!). We’ve accepted this one with glee, as it covers the Christmas / New Year period. They are absolutely lovely people, and have three daughters aged between 10 and 16. (who we are NOT baby-sitting!)
The showgrounds themselves are quite nice, lots of area for both powered and unpowered camping. The toilets & showers might struggle a bit though if there were a lot of people there, as there are not that many in the blocks. The manager was very helpful, even though he had his hands full trying to fix the septic system!
