Hotel Koorawatha Free Camp, NSW

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

As soon as we walked in the pub after a big day on the road, we certainly felt welcomed. For a Sunday evening, Hotel Koorawatha was pumping! And to my surprise, people were playing cards! 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

We’re on the road again – with the mother-in-law!

We’re on the road again! Best of all, we’re travelling with my darling mum! (And sis and bro-in-law). Thankfully, mum adores her son-in-laws and vice versa. But there will be banter, and cards – crib, most likely. We’re travelling WEST! Last weekend we visited Dalby, St George and the new Cunnamulla Hot Springs. Today’s agenda is a mud bath (tell us if you’ve done one), more artesian baths, bush pubs and bush camps! Please say hello if you see us on the road.

South Coast NSW Must See: Wallagoot Gap

I can’t believe we travelled all the way to Bournda National Park and missed this beauty! Wallagoot Gap in Bournda National Park is on the New South Wales’ Sapphire Coast. Bermagui to Wonboyn is known as the Sapphire Coast – and is home to many gems of locations! This well hidden beach is only minutes from Tathra and Merimbula. Wallagoot Gap is a 200 metre walk from Turingal Head Picnic Area (find the day use area in the CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App). You’ll reach a timber platform and stairs down to the beach. Make sure you bring your camera, as

Best ocean pools on the New South Wales South Coast

Aslings Beach Pool, Eden Never have I ever seen so many ocean pools in the one Aussie roadtrip, from Wollongong area to Eden. I don’t mean natural rock pools, but man-made swimming pools that meet the sea! I had swim lessons at Snapper Rocks “baths”, next to Queensland’s most southerly Froggie Beach. You can only see remnants of it now. But in Queensland, these ocean pools are less common. Can you believe, it is estimated there are over 70 of these along the NSW coast? As we travelled along the southeastern coast of Australia, we were keen to check them

Get egg-cited about these Easter camping destinations

The Easter Bilby and Bunny are almost here, and we hope you are camping! Our youngest was working in “Lonnie”, Tassie last week, and sent us pics from his hike into beautiful Cataract Gorge. (We didn’t realise we’d been pronouncing Launceston wrong – it’s not “Lawn” but “Lon”!) I love it when our kids send me photos, and especially that they are travellers and campers! This week’s newsletter is full of Easter savings, destinations and tips! Also note that school holidays scramble across the states – 29 March -14 April for QLD, VIC and WA; 6-15 April in NT and
