The NEW Camps Australia Wide Site Symbols

  It has come in handy – we’ve booked holidays in Coffs Harbour, Sunshine Coast and Surfers.  It’s good because of the symbols – like a playground for the kids, also petrol stations and shopping centres. It’s really good for me, I find it easy and I don’t know how to use maps! The kids are 6 and 10, they look at the pictures and are learning from the symbols and know if it has a playground or toilet.  We save caravan parks in favourites and eliminate them until we find the site we like. You can tell if they have toilets,

Searching for FREE sites in the new CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App

Yes – the new App is now available for download! You will notice that there are more than campsites and caravan parks – now you can see pub and club stays, showgrounds and community halls, national parks, state forests and conservation areas, farm and station stays, free and donations overnight stops and paid overnight stops.  The new App gives people many more options for searching and filtering – when you see it, I am sure you’ll agree. For instance, you can look for all pub stays that are free.  Having sites categorised is totally new to the market.  Please note: if you want to

Wolvi Grove farm stay
App

New Listing: Wolvi Grove, Queensland

Who doesn’t love a farm stay? Our newest listing is at Tagigan Road, Wolvi (next door to Cooloola Berries), 28 km north east of Gympie. Owners, Julie and Tony, say their 40 acre working avocado farm has some remnant forest and you might encounter some kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and even koalas. It is also a haven for birdwatchers. Guests must be fully self-contained as there are no facilities – BYO portaloo! An extra bonus comes with Wolvi Grove; not only are you camping beside an avocado orchard, but can walk a few hundred metres with direct access to a farm

Are you fireside in Autumn

Are you fireside in Autumn?

Relaxing scene, isn’t it?  This was our view for three nights at Carlo Point, Rainbow Beach. We knew we’d be hard put to get away for Easter, so snuck off the previous weekend with another family for some R&R. There’s nothing like it, is there? Camping just brings out the best in us. I road tested the Thermos Cooker (thumbs up, all around), learnt a new card game and delved a bit further into my book. We’ve popped this photo on our Facebook page on April 15. One thing we love is hearing from all of you about the places you go,
