Camp near the Flying Boats at Lake Boga, Victoria

I had not even heard of Flying Boats – you can also camp on Lake Boga down the road! As you can see from our photos, rain prevailed the day we visited. When the weather is miserable – campers know it’s a good time to shop, eat out or visit a museum… Lake Boga was the centre of a secret military camp in World War II. Heatley loves his war history, so I added the Lake Boga Flying Boat Museum to our trip! It is a very hands-on museum – you can pop your head into the planes. Back and

Lake Leslie Dam Lookout, Queensland

2 camps at Lake Leslie, Warwick, Queensland

Lake Leslie Dam Lookout Heatley has never seen more water in Leslie Dam! I remember a picnic at Lake Leslie (as it is widely known) with his extended family (they lived locally). The creek area we all swam at has ‘no swimming’ signs there now – but it is still a lovely picnic area. We started at the lookout. For us, it was a perfect breakfast stop, as it wasn’t busy. We walked the dam wall… The spillway was super impressive! There is a nice picnic area here near the dam wall (with amenities). Make sure you stop and say
