Heatley and Michelle at Tenterfield

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.

We had the most amazing trip. Although previous owners of CAMPS

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
