Edith Falls - Leliyn - NT
Camping

MUST SEE and CAMP: Edith Falls, NT

Edith Falls, known as Leliyn just 42 km north of Katherine, NT is on the road to Darwin. We thought this was an amazing location with campsites so close to swimming, plus toilets and showers. There is a huge expanse of water and a rocky island when we were there. It was only after we had a long swim and explore (the elder kids swam out to the waterfall with Heatley) we found the croc trap and sign. The rocky climb towards the upper pool was worth it. We swam to the waterfall and floated through the cool channels. There

Tullah Lakeside Lodge
Camping

2 new Pubstays in Tassie

Today we listed two new campsites at beautiful Tullah in Tasmania. Both are pubstays and within close proximity to each other. Tullah Lakeside Lodge This pub stay is right on the banks of Lake Rosebery. They offer camping for Caravans, RVs and camper trailers, with power, water and shared amenities. However, the base is hard gravel. This means you won’t pitch a tent here, but you can always stay in the lodge just for the serenity and views. Camping is $25 for a couple for the night and there is a free area for self-contained RVs. You’ll be stunned with

Budget Camp: Kooroorinya Falls Nature Reserve

  These photos are taken from when we dropped into Kooroorinya Falls Nature Reserve – a little known community-owned camp area between Muttaburra and Prairie in Queensland. You’ll find it in the CAMPS 11 book out this month and the Camps Australia Wide App (QLD site 414 in CAMPS 10).
