Berringa Farmstay, Victoria - Meet the animals
Camping

NEW camp: Berringa Farmstay, near Ballarat, Victoria

If you are looking for wide open spaces, and you are self contained, visit George and Rachael at Berringa Farmstay, Victoria. Camp within the pine trees with your own private fire pit – or closer to the house. Power and water are available for an extra fee. Pet friendly, there are only 5 sites across 5 acres, so it is very family friendly for bike riding and games. For animal lovers, look out for kookaburras, rosellas, magpies, black cockatoos and echidnas. Plus kids will love to meet the sheep, geese, chickens and ducks! And there are yabbies in the dam.

Broome to the Bungle Bungles, Wangi to Warburton – is everyone travelling?

It feels like everyone is travelling! Mum has just returned from a Broome to Kakudu adventure, and that is after fun for her 80th birthday in Adelaide and the Murray River!

Our new Tik Tok page has gone VIRAL this week, and do you know why? It was thanks

Family Travel Games: CAMPS Spotto

We’ve been playing this for years in our family……following the grand tradition of car trips with the Aulds. Four siblings would be vying for the first “spotting” of cat/dog/cow/kangaroo (sign OK) etc…all for a few cents a find! A car trip full of peace and quiet was well worth the price of some scrap paper and a few coins. Here are a few to get you started. surfboard on a car police car boat brumbies (extra if live) fire station windmill campervan My favourite – Belted Galloways, spotted just after we landed in Launceston, Tasmania outside historic Evandale Friesian cow

We created wonderful memories and time together – squished in a six-berth motorhome. The 13 year old was adamant she was flying home from Perth! But,
