Dickabram bridge Miva QLD
Camping

Stop at the historic Dickabram Bridge, Miva, Queensland

You can see why it is a whole lot of water if the Mary River is close to the road above, as it was early January, 2022! 1893 was when the Mary River covered the bridge. In 1955 water splashed through the decking. The bridge stands 23 metres above the river! It is a little noisy crossing the historic Dickabram Bridge, Miva – not far from Theebine Hotel in the Gympie region. After lunch at the pub, we stopped at the bridge’s rest area for the night. And it is also noisy camping next to it. It does sound like

Ginty’s Lookout, an overnight camp with a great Red Centre view, Northern Territory

The Red Centre of Northern Territory is internationally famous for good reason! CAMPS Ambassadors Dan and Manda were travelling from the West MacDonnell Ranges. They said, “We hit some more dirt roads and made our way towards Kings Canyon. We found this great free camp (Ginty’s Lookout) which was right on the edge of the escarpment overlooking the valley. We enjoyed sitting on the rocks, watching the sunset and sharing a drink.” Whether you are traveling west like them, descending down into Kings Canyon on your way to Uluru, or travelling back to Alice, this is a perfect spot!

2 free camps and budget showground at Urbenville, New South Wales

It is surrounded by waterfalls, national parks and state forests. Jenny Woodley shared photos in our Facebook group “I Love Camping Australia WIde”.

Dirranbandi Balonne Minor Bridge Camp Site

Free camp riverside at Balonne Minor Bridge, Dirranbandi, Queensland

As we drove towards Bollon from Dirranbandi, we popped into the Balonne Minor Bridge and decided it was our campsite for the night! For me it was the beautiful river and riverbank, there was only a scattering of vans parked up, and it was well off the road. The boys however, loved that the mobile reception was excellent – as there was a footy game on that night. Whilst they set up, I read my book down on the bank. We had a cracking night under the stars fireside, despite a few rodents skirting through the grass. There are no

Oriental Claims Historic Area, Victoria

Explore the Oriental Claims Historic Area, Victoria

The Great Alpine Road in Victoria has many hidden gems and amazing camping locations. Think campfires beside creek beds or historic cattleman’s huts. We were driving on the outskirts of Omeo, south of Hotham and Dinner Plain Alpine areas, and could see in the distance red cliffs. My travel companion followed his nose and we happened upon very interesting remains of the Victorian goldrush. The Oriental Claims Historic Area is a picnic area 3 km south west of town. Dogs are allowed if on leash, but there is no camping. Turn right to the picnic area first, and read up
