What to see and do at Arthur River in Tasmania’s North West

Boasting three budget campgrounds and a caravan park, Arthur River is a must do! This tiny village has a population of about 25. Surrounded by the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area and located on the Tarkine Drive this is a pristine area of Tasmania.  As for wildlife, there are  Bennett’s wallabies, Tasmanian pademelons and wombats. Tasmanian devils, brushtail possums and spotted-tailed quolls! Unfortunately, we only spotted the Tassie Devil signs. Birdwatchers have plenty of species to spot as well. On top of fishing, surfing, horse riding and camping, it is surprising how much there is to do and see… The Edge of the World A must! Take the short drive and take the boardwalk to

Romantic Boonoo Boonoo Falls, New South Wales

Before you get to Boonoo Boonoo National Park, you need to get the lingo right! It’s pronounced Bunna Boo Nu. Practice it, soon it will roll off the tongue. I hadn’t quite done that in the video! https://youtu.be/PbkorYCfx4c The photos simply don’t do it justice! The lookout is where Banjo Paterson proposed to his missus, so they say! No wonder she said yes, Boonoo Boonoo Falls is breathtaking. It is an effort to get to also – 43 km from Stanthorpe, Queensland or 23 km from Tenterfield, New South Wales, turn west. It is 4 km on the Boonoo Boonoo

CAMP at Cypress Pine Campground, Boonoo Boonoo National Park, New South Wales

Cypress Pine Campground is the only camp in Boonoo Boonoo National Park. This is how you pronounce it! Located beside the Boonoo Boonoo River, there are firepits, BBQ and picnic tables at sites. Plus you’ll find a sheltered area and accessible toilets.  I’m coming back for the river walk, It is one beautiful river and gorge!  There are plentiful sites, but do book ahead – there is little mobile reception at this park.  Make sure you see Boonoo Boonoo Falls, the waterfall Banjo Patterson thought was romantic, whilst you are here!  You can also fish (get a NSW licence) – and

National Park must stay: Bald Rock Campground, New South Wales

We are definitely coming back to this wonderful spot! You can camp under the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest granite rock! Sites at Bald Rock Campground have plenty of vegetation and privacy, we loved the granite surrounds. Bald Rock was neutral ground, trade route and a meeting place for three of the Aboriginal nations of the area: the Jukambal, Bundgalung and Kamilleroi. The campground would be a wonderful location for groups. There is a sheltered area, but each site had picnic tables – the site we stopped at had a huge one. The firepits were very functional with BBQ plates that rotated.

Climb Australia’s largest granite rock – at Bald Rock National Park, New South Wales

My adrenaline is still on overdrive after climbing down the southern hemisphere’s largest granite monolith! When I’ve visited Stanthorpe, Queensland, I stopped at Girraween National Park, on the way to the border town, Wallangarra. It is full of granite domes, balancing rocks, and epic walks. I remember them being a bit scary, too! Well, Bald Rock National Park adjoins Girraween. And we had quite the adventure here, that is NOT for the faint hearted. After lunch and checking out the lovely Bald Rock Campground and local wildlife, we read the walk info. “Grade 5! No way!” said I. Ever the diplomat, Heatley assures, “We’ll

Free camp oasis at Leichhardt Falls, Queensland 

This is a very popular and scenic stop along the Queensland Gulf section of the Savannah Way. Best for self contained vehicles as there are no facilities – it is free and pet friendly. Make sure you leave no trace when you leave. The rocky plateaus and water provide great photo opportunities and exploring. Water levels will vary depending on the season. Julie Holt sent in these photos and told us, “The birdlife was amazing. The birds and wildlife were so natural, even though the cockatoos were noisy. Lucky for me I could take my hearing aids out to sleep!”
