OUR STORY at

gidgee's bush camp
www.gidgeesbushcamp.com.au

Our names Kylee & Michael Tindale-Smith.  We have 4
children, one of which is still at boarding
school.
We have lived and worked in rural communities for  majority of  our lives.
Our careers have predominately been in the Sheep and wool industry. 
Michael was a shearer and presser, while I classed and cooked for 20 years.
Michael then spent 4 years as an agent for Landmark and then went onto work in the coal and gas industry for the next 10 years.
I started my bag manufacturing business known as Gidgee Smith Bags in 2003 which has
continued to grow over the last 17 years, now providing work for a couple of local ladies.
We returned to my home town of Morven in 2009.
With the down turn in oil and gas and sudden family illnesses Mick returned home and now works on a cattle grazing enterprise 25 km out of town.
We are happy to invite quests to stage one of our Bush Camping Grounds and look forward to seeing it grow over the years to Come.

Am I local, is a question I am asked on a daily basis. Well yes and no I suppose. I was born in Charleville and grew up in Morven, both in and out of town. I moved to Quilpie in the Channel Country where I worked, married and started a family for 22 years, before returning to Morven 11 years ago. This is a photo of my dear old mum and dad. Jim & Wilma Currie (nee Johnson). My grandparents Bob and Clara Johnson came to Morven in 1928 when they brought Wilmavale. Mum was born in a little house in Morven in 1941, and she grew then grew up on her parents property. With not many girls on neighboring properties she grew up along side the Curley's on Tregole and the Crichton's on Maryvale. It was fair to say the boys out numbered the girls, but by all accounts the girls could handle themselves in any given situation, which generally meant the boys came out second best from time to time. At 79 mum is now the eldest living person that was actually born in Morven, and is the longest living resident i believe. Dad came out to work with the Turner family on Hillgrove in 1956, although he worked around shearing he has lived in Morven sense then. He spent 25 years on the Rail, and is very excited to see the #morvenrailhub come to live and give Morven some exciting prospects for the further. There has now been 3 generations of Johnson's attend the Morven State School from our side of the family, and hopefully we will get to celebrate a 100 years of family history and connection to Morven in another 8 years time #locals #morven4468 @gidgeesmithbags #gidgeesbushcamp #outbackqueensland #unwindwithwire #liveinthebush
