In the 1980's, Murphys Creek Hideaway was carved on a 50 acre block of vagrant vegetation that existed on the banks of Murphys Creek.
In late September 2009, the park was purchased by Peter and Lisa Souter, then residing at the Gold Coast hinterland.
They had been looking for an opportunity like this for many years. Fourteen days after their first year anniversary, a very large flood hit South East Queensland. It inundated Murphys Creek Hideaway, resulting in the creek line being washed away, and the road and culvert leading onto the property also being destroyed. The business was then closed for three months.
After opening for business, they received an amazing response from the public. Volunteers and locals came from everywhere to lend a hand as they once again, carved out the property from a very rough canvas. Today, they have restored the magnificent grounds attracting visitors from around the World. The property is recovering every day with the growth of new trees, the addition of new facilities, and the local wildlife returning to the area.
Please come and enjoy the many natural and restoring attributes of Murphy's Creek Hideaway and forget about the hustle and bustle of your daily life.
