National parks offer no end of fun this summer

Families choose to move to Brisbane and its suburbs for many different reasons. Not only does the area offer excellent educational opportunities, but also access to some of Queensland's stunning landscapes.

People throughout the state are being urged to make the most of the summer months by exploring national parks, many of which might be nearer than you think.

One of the advantages of living in rental properties in Morayfield is that there are so many choices just a stone's throw away, so your only problem might be narrowing down your options!

The likes of Fort Lytton National Park and Bunyaville Regional Park can easily be accessed, so you'll never be short of family activities over the coming weeks.

National Parks Minister Steve Dickson explained just how easy it is to find a fun day out right on your doorstep.

"The National Parks website can help you locate National Parks nearby with specific facilities or ones that cater for specific activities such as camping, hiking, fishing, cycling, canoeing or horse riding and might even ignite interest in an activity you've never tried before," he commented.

There's also plenty of online information on changes to facilities as well as any access restrictions that might be in place.
