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

Camp beside waterfalls for the last day of summer

Liffey Falls, North West Tasmania It’s the last day of summer! Just a few days ago we were swimming in the Bass Strait and the Tasman Sea. Heatley was compared to “The Hoff” with his Baywatch-like runs we shared on our socials. You really had to be quick and wet – BEFORE you changed your mind. Yes, it was chilly – but both of us Queenslanders agreed it was worth every gasp and shiver. Here’s Heatley at Bicheno. But when it came to their waterfalls, we admired them and stayed dry! We had the most amazing trip. Although previous owners of CAMPS

Waterfalls on the Box Forest Circuit, O’Reillys, Queensland

Yalnungala Falls O’Reillys Rainforest Retreat is south of Canungra in Queensland – and after last year’s devastating bushfires in May followed by the COVID-19 pandemic, what was known as Green Mountains campground, reopened as O’Reilly’s Campground. We checked it out recently and Heatley found us our very own waterfall – all to ourselves! The weather was scorching that week, even though we were walking under the cool of the rainforest canopy, As soon as we found the rock pools at Picnic Rock, I couldn’t have been more happy to sink into a little rockpool. it was more like a spa

Babinda Rotary Park
Free Camping

Explore waterfalls from Babinda Rotary Park

Enjoy a peaceful night sleep in the humble town of Babinda (located just off the Bruce Highway). This free camping site is found in the Cairns region, between the coastal Graham Range and inland Bellenden Ker Range. Babinda is said to be named after the Aboriginal word “binda” which means waterfall or rain. Either is plausible since there are plenty of waterfalls in the nearby ranges and it is one of the wettest places in Australia (receiving nearly 4 metres of rainfall per year). The town is nestled amongst lush mountains and green farmlands and is a great place to

Horizontal Waterfalls

Where: Talbot Bay, WA In Talbot Bay you will witness the incredible power of the only horizontal waterfalls in the world. Whether viewing them from a plane or a boat, the beautiful turquoise waters of Talbot Bay are an amazing sight to see and the gushing waterfalls make it that much more impressive. David Attenborough has described the Horizontal Waterfalls as “one of the greatest natural wonders in the world”. The horizontal waterfalls are a result of massive tidal movements that cause water to push up against one side of the narrow cliff passage. As the water pushes through the

Get egg-cited about these Easter camping destinations

The Easter Bilby and Bunny are almost here, and we hope you are camping! Our youngest was working in “Lonnie”, Tassie last week, and sent us pics from his hike into beautiful Cataract Gorge. (We didn’t realise we’d been pronouncing Launceston wrong – it’s not “Lawn” but “Lon”!) I love it when our kids send me photos, and especially that they are travellers and campers! This week’s newsletter is full of Easter savings, destinations and tips! Also note that school holidays scramble across the states – 29 March -14 April for QLD, VIC and WA; 6-15 April in NT and

Home to Victoria’s largest cave system, tours and the campground bookings are due to

Camping

We had a ‘Buchan’ good time!

  Buchan Recreation Reserve Update March 19:  We’ve just been advised that the Buchan Caves and Reserve will reopen on March 26th in time for Easter. Pronounced ‘Bucken’ – Buchan in East Gippsland Victoria needs travellers!

When we visited, locals were not sure if Buchan Caves was
