With Queensland being Australia’s most de-populated State in Australia a Brisbane School Camp is a great format for regional schools to expose their students to the State’s capital. Located just a short 20 minute from the CBD, QCCC Brookfield is the closest exclusive school camp site to all the activities and delights of Brisbane city. That’s why the focus of QCCC Brookfield is on its home city – Brisbane. As one of few camping options within the city it is highly sought after by country schools from all over the State. Schools from as far away as Cairns and the Whitsundays are regular visitors.
Queensland Health has been recently been conducting exhaustive health and safety audits of Queensland school campsites prompted by a viral gastroenteritis outbreak at a Grade 4 camp at a competitor site, impacting 40 children. Queensland Health are keen to establish school campsites are doing their utmost to prevent a recurrence of this episode. It has been gratifying for QCCC staff to be informed we're “best-practice” by Queensland Health officials, with QCCC’s commitment to excellence favourably compared to some of Queensland’s top resorts. In the last week it was the turn of our Brisbane Campsite, QCCC Brookfield, to be audited. As expected, Brookfield received an excellent report. This was of little surprise to the Brookfield staff given their participation in Brisbane City Council’s Eat Safe program which rates the health and safety of catering facilities by a star-rating system.
