Curtin Springs, NT
Camping

Free camp at Curtin Springs Wayside Inn, Northern Territory

Free camp at Curtin Springs Wayside Inn – a definite stop in the Red Centre in Northern Territory! One of our fam has headed out on a four hour tour to Mt Conner. We’re stowed up at the ‘bough shed’, the historic original homestead for the Severin family in 1956. Three years they lived here! Desert Oak, chicken wire and spinifex grass make up the structure. Read up on it: they say they were the first evaporative air conditioners – just put a sprinkler on the roof. A common shelter back then, is now a brilliant – and unique –

Newtons Crossing FREE CAMP Bega Region, NSW Do not despair, you can still find free camps on the NSW South Coast … Made up of Illawarra and Kiama, Shellharbour, Shoalhaven, Eurobodalla and Bega Valley or Sapphire Coasts regions, we loved our New South Wales South Coast adventure.

Expect swimming and fishing at most of these (make sure you have a permit) so pack your togs and your fishing

Hotel Koorawatha Free Camp, NSW
Camping

I’ve left a part of me at Koorawatha, New South Wales

My kind of hotel. Every Sunday, they host a Euchre comp. Well, we ordered some dinner, chatted to locals, played our own card game and enjoyed the atmosphere. Heatley rated the snags (they were skinny beef sausages, cooked to the max – just how he does it himself), and I had the yummy beef schnitty special. Finishing our drinks in the beer garden, we checked
