ANZAC Day Memorial Park Goondiwindi
ACT

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them

Memorial Park Goondiwindi The Ode always brings a tear to my eye. ANZAC Day is a solemn reminder of all the lives lost and impacted by war. This year it also commemorates the 80th anniversary of D-Day in WWII and Army women serving overseas. As we travel Australia, we see war memorialised in avenues of trees, swimming pools, gates, arches, cenotaphs, crosses, gardens, hospitals – even roads and bridges. More often, we see cenotaphs, obelisks or a “digger” statue, like this one from Goondiwindi, Queensland. On April 25, Australians gather around them, to remember all who have fought for our

Planning a big lap? Part 4 – Augusta, WA to ACT

Take our final journey of our Aussie Big Lap! This section starts us from Augusta WA, where you watch two oceans meet from the top of Australia’s tallest lighthouse!

Pet friendly camp near a waterfall at Woods Reserve, Australian Capital Territory

Gibraltar Falls ACT We love camps near waterfalls! On a recent winter visit to the Australian Capital Territory, I was able to scope out some campsites.  From Woods Reserve, you can walk or drive upstream to the magnificent Gibraltar Falls. It’s only 30 or so km from Canberra. It is named after the first Europeans to settle in the area. The camp is near Namadgi National Park – with toilets, showers, picnic tables, shade, wood BBQs and a 14 day limit. It is a pretty drive out here, not far from the Brindabellas. A favourite of our Canberra family, it

Spring is time for camping

We really had spring sprung on us this year. In one day we travelled from Canberra, ACT to Whyrallah, near Lismore, NSW – and then the next we were in sunny QLD, back to Rainbow Beach.  After last week in Perisher when it was snowing, we arrived back to sunny beach weather.  What a difference in climate! We spoke to a few skiing campers, who said they were cosy in their van and caravan parks close to the mountain. One couple had been camped out all winter!   We also saw how dry some of our countryside is! Please let
