Aussie MUST DO: Taronga Western Plains Zoo at Dubbo, New South Wales

Did you know you can camp at Taronga Western Plains Zoo? Heatley’s mum and sister had the best time there last week! They said:    “5 hrs at the zoo. Fabulous day. Nyla the king cheetah, the giraffes and the Siamang apes were so engaging and our favourites…”   You’ll find it in Dubbo, New South Wales. It’s an interesting town to explore – but even better knowing you can see the lions and giraffes. If you are driving near Dubbo with the kids, add African animals to your spotto list!    I wonder if you’ve been here, too? Here are photos from

See the turtles at Mon Repos

Definitely a thing for your bucket list.  The turtles were THE reason we stayed at Bargara Beach Caravan Park. Mon Repos supports the Pacific region’s largest breeding population of loggerhead turtles, and the largest nesting marine turtles on the eastern mainland Australia. Of course we found lots of other lovely things to do in Bundaberg and the coast, but seeing the turtles was the highlight of the weekend. Not just for us, but also our son and his friend.  Be prepared for a wait. If you are planning, book well ahead. If not, and it is booked out – ask if

7 things I didn’t know about the Melbourne Cup

Our Melbourne Cup is held at Flemington Racecourse on the first Tuesday of November. Here’s what we didn’t know about the Race that Stops the Nation: Without an exception, everyone was so friendly. Every queue (and there will be a few queues), all in our finery, people were excited to be there and smiling. From our seat near the finish line, waiting for lunch, or champagne – even in the Ladies – people were happy to chat. Who knew, that our National Anthem could be so stirring at a horse race. The atmosphere was electric, like a soccer game in Italy!

Explore The Kimberley: 12 must dos around Kununurra and the eastern Gibb River Road, Western Australia

Kapok flowers and the Cockburn Ranges on the Gibb River Road Nothing compares to The Kimberley. I don’t think I could even anticipate how much this well known region, covering the north of Western Australia would resonate within me. Was it the trees? Those sunsets? Definitely the ranges… We explored from Kununurra to Broome, I was entranced! Here’s why we loved the eastern Kimberley and our introduction to the Gibb River Road… 1. Kununurra town We had to get through some work deadlines, and back then we secured an awesome family rate – so it was our longest stop in our

Bucket List Oasis in New South Wales – Menindee Lakes

Kim Murphy sent us this photo of Lake Menindee Just like everyone wants to see the miraculous occasion when South Australia’s Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre National Park has water in it, Menindee Lakes is another outback oasis – but timing must be right! Described as naturally ephemeral, the inter-connected lakes are normally dry, unless there has been adequate rain. They were modified during the 1950s and 1960s for water storage to nearby Broken Hill, as well as towns and farms in the Murray–Darling system. So when there is water in them – travellers flock to the great camping spots you’ll find

Camp at the Red Centre: Ayers Rock Resort, Northern Territory

CAMPS at Ayers Rock Resort As a caravan park, Ayers Rock Resort at Yulara, NT has all you need. It is pet friendly, has room for Big Rigs, amenities, laundry, camp kitchen, playground, pool and shade of the desert oaks. We loved the hill – where you see “The Rock“, and can toast the excitement of being so close to Uluru and Kata Tjuta. It is pricey, but this is the only option so close to Uluru for camping, and you do want to book in advance. You do have access to the resort restaurants and bars, shops, galleries, information
