Hello Summer! Cool down and camp along Australia’s Waterfall Way

We just had the BEST week. Our “schoolies” included 5 waterfalls, 8 national parks, 8 pubs and a whopping 20 waterside camps! We followed major rivers – the mighty Clarence and Belliger, lulled to sleep on Nymboida’s rapids, onto dips in the Gwydir and Bielsdown Rivers as well as the Reedy and Never Never Creeks. From uggies to togs, we checked out farms, showgrounds, bridges, halls, forests, hikes, a suspension bridge, a skywalk and met lovely fellow travellers. Instead of a partridge in a pear tree, there was a very noisy cockatoo! I admit, because we are scoping out new camps,

MUST SEE Oracles Way – 2 states and waterfalls, 3 national parks, living history AND Australia’s biggest granite rock

Just back from our Armidale trip, we took a road we’ve never travelled from Queensland into New South Wales. So impressed, we are sharing The Oracles Way with you. We picked up new season crisp pink ladies (a papple and a potkin) at fruit stores in Stanthorpe, visited Neville at the Information Centre for local advice and drove east (not west as I had in the our newsletter) almost straight into New South Wales. What a route it is! It has everything from a bushranger and World War II living history, to a waterfall that rivals Litchfield National Park! My

World’s Steepest: Katoomba Scenic Railway, New South Wales

If you like a little thrill, visit The Blue Mountains and the Katoomba Scenic World. The world’s steepest railway is west of Sydney, in New South Wales. The Three Sisters is one of those landmarks that tourists from Australia and overseas line up for.  We started at Echo Point and The Three Sisters, and took the Giant Stairway – 800 plus steps down – down into the valley. This is a Grade 4 walk.  Then we walked Federal Pass to Katoomba Falls and Scenic World.  Now, here’s the thing to remember: this railway was built in the 1880s for coal,

7 ways to save your travel dollars when petrol prices soar

It is encouraging to hear that the record level petrol prices won’t be stopping RV travellers and campers in Australia. Here’s a list to help you stretch the budget further, despite wallets hit harder at the petrol bowsers. 1. It’s about the journey, not the distance One way to slow down petrol spend, is to decrease your daily distances. Last year it took us eight hours to travel to our campsite, sixty minutes away. Plus it was fun! We found state forests, lookouts, historical trails as well as a pub! Yes, this may mean you’ll cover less of Australia each
