Planning a big lap? Here’s where we travelled – part 1

Over the next month we’re taking you through our first lap of Australia! Of course, we’ve been back to many of these places over the years… If you are planning short trips or a lap yourself, you may want to add some of these locations to your list. Today we take you from Queensland to Victoria – via the Back O’ Bourke! Aussie Lap best bits! Let’s go ten years back – when our kids were 14, 13, 10 and 8. All jampacked in a tin can, here’s our highlights (part 1)…. First stop: Kirra, QLD We said bye to

Our Aussie big lap with the kids – part 1

If you are considering an Aussie big lap, here’s ours! Go ten years back – when our kids were 14, 13, 10 and 8, all jampacked in a tin can. At the time we owned the local paper – so our Australia road trip was chronicled every month. As I planned, nomad friends told us about a book we must buy – and marked their must sees in it for us! Who’d have thought a few years later we’d be the owner of CAMPS and making our trips “work and play”! Here’s our first update from Back o’ Bourke in

Swim into the last month of summer with these camps

We’re just back from Wee Waa in western NSW and we didn’t think we’d be dipping in a hot bore bath! Although temps were soaring for the weekend, we dutifully (haha) tested out Pilliga Bore Baths – now open for swimming and camping! Heatley decided it was nowhere near as hot as the Lightning Ridge spa, so it was the first hot mineral springs he enjoyed! Are they your ‘cup of tea’? I love them all, the hotter – the better. But it was great to cool down with their shower after. Council wanted us to mention, the nearest dump

Ready for 2024 adventures? The BEST of Australia is right here

We hope you’re ready for some 2024 adventures, but firstly – THANK YOU to all the travellers who wrote in and told us they loved our camping myths! Some had questions, others brought up the self-contained debate and we were told: “It is good to see someone not afraid to print the truths about a lot of the xxxx that is out there. Keep up the good work.” Another traveller, Bruce, used our App and book for a 5-week Streaky Bay to Sydney roadtrip and here are his photos and locations! He told us: “We could not fault the expert

New Caravan Park opens at Beachside Ulladulla – New South Wales

This gorgeous beachside location on the New South Wales south coast has been reopened as Beachside Ulladulla Holiday Park after the long closure of Beach Haven. It is pet friendly and getting great reviews from campers. They love the ocean views, abundant activities in the area and falling asleep to the lapping of the occean waves. Who doesn’t love brand new amenities of course, and friendly helpful managers to welcome you. As the park is new, it is being upgraded over time and will include a swimming pool in the future.  However, as you are 150 metres from the long

Finding camps along the New South Wales Pacific Coast

One of the frequent queries we receive is why aren’t there free camps along the Pacific Highway? Historically, the rest areas allowed free overnight stays. However, as travellers abused the 24 hour limit, with locations so close to beautiful beaches and towns… the government cracked down what was allowed. You will notice that listings were deliberately kept in the CAMPS book, so travellers could have a spot to rest overnight (not necessarily “camp”). Some of these regions were trialing an RV stopover at the rest areas – we felt it was important to provide options along the Pacific coast where

Boil the billy and relax at our best camps for the year!

Rose Isle Station Happy New Year! Here’s our final round up for 2023. Last week we shared favourite pubs, silo art, towns, burgers and more – this week we rank campsites! It was hard to narrow it down – Heatley is happy wherever he can have a campfire, swim or views and maybe a chat! I think my list is about the experiences there, as much as the surroundings. In 4 months, across 5 states/territory and 16000 km. Here goes … visit our BEST 10 camps from our winter trip! Plus we add in a few more from our other
