Have fun at Theebine Hotel, Queensland

Theebine Hotel owner, Jackson If you haven’t been to Theebine, then you should!  Update: We were back again, last weekend for the opening of the new deck at Theebine Hotel. What a night, and I slept like a baby in the van. Check out the photos on our socials! We visited last September, met the publican,  some CAMPS fans (thanks Jeanette and friends) and said hi to the local councillor, Cr Dolly Jensen and had a lovely relaxed lunch! Since then, the Mary River flooded and has caused dreadful damage to the area. So, I’d say, they need your support even

On the Murray at Murtho Forest Landing

Located 10 minutes from Paringa, this camping spot offers shade and great camping on the banks of the Murray River. There is a beautiful lookout close by and also a lot of decent fishing spots along the banks where campers are known to catch Callop, Carp, Yabbies and Golden Perch. If you go walk about you will most likely see a variety of wildlife such as pelicans, wrens, kangaroos and rosellas. In the warmer months you might even come across a snake, so keep an eye out to make sure you don’t get an unpleasant surprise. Don’t miss the lookout

Leven Canyon Reserve Tasmania
Camping

Free camp beside a Tassie canyon at Leven Canyon Reserve

What a site! Just a short walk from this free, pet-friendly campground at Leven Canyon Reserve is a lookout 275m above the river!  On arrival, we saw the day use area below the carpark – the elevated campground is quite sloped, but there were still flat locations to set up camp. I loved this camp spot with the silver wattle, looking over the valley of blue gum – this is the photo chosen for our brand new CAMPS 12 now available on pre-order… There were a couple of RVs set up at the top of the hill. Below that was a

Feed the family from free camp, Red Cliff Beach, South Australia

Red Cliff Beach in SA, just 13 km south of Tumby Bay is pet friendly, with mobile coverage and a zero price and zero facilities. But you are rewarded with priceless views and abundant fishing! Fishing is best here at high tide off the points, and in the inlet. Said CAMPS Ambassador, Manda, “Daniel went fishing with a friend in his boat and they caught enough King George Whiting and squid to feed the family every lunch and dinner. Others were fishing off the rocks and spearfishing, both were also successful!” The southern end of Red Cliff is a beachfront camping area.
