More swimming and camping at Litchfield’s Central Valley, Northern Territory

We are so excited about the Litchfield National Park improvements. One of our favourite parks in Australia, we loved the waterfall hopping and Buley Rockpools.  Now we can explore brand new areas – with Central Valley campsites on track to open this dry season. Work on the highly-anticipated $17.5 million Turbo Charging Tourism project is progressing well, with 10 campsites in the northern section of the development now complete. The area will allow campers and visitors direct access to swim in and enjoy the spring-fed creeks. Stage 3 Local company, the Ostojic Group, is carrying out construction for Stage 3

Edith Falls - Leliyn - NT
Camping

MUST SEE and CAMP: Edith Falls, Northern Territory

Edith Falls, known as Leliyn just 42 km north of Katherine, NT is on the road to Darwin. We thought this was an amazing location with campsites so close to swimming, plus toilets and showers. There is a huge expanse of water and a rocky island when we were there. It was only after we had a long swim and explore (the elder kids swam out to the waterfall with Heatley) we found the croc trap and sign. The rocky climb towards the upper pool was worth it. We swam to the waterfall and floated through the cool channels. There

There's nothing more that our family loves than waterfall and waterhole hopping. Here we are at Edith Falls, NT
Camping

We’re all going on a summer holiday

There’s nothing more that our family loves than waterfall and waterhole hopping. Here we are at Edith Falls, NT Our boys have finished school for the year, so now CAMPS 11 is at the printer, we’ll sneak off to the mountains for a family break. I’m thinking bushwalking, watching sunsets and plenty of swimming under waterfalls. It’ll be great to check out their new campground area – O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat is in Lamington National Park, in the Gold Coast Hinterland.   We are delighted to hear restrictions are relaxing on the QLD border – it means we’ll be seeing more

Free Camping Northern Territory

Neil Hargrave Lookout, Northern Territory, is a perfect base

Photo credit: Rose Boccalatte @roseyb_11 via Instagram What is amazing about this rest area is that you are in the West MacDonnell Ranges, close to tourist icons. This route is a must-see with beautiful gorges, indigenous culture, chasm, gap, hole and pits! With a bitumen surface, there are picnic tables and a BBQ, but a patchy mobile reception. It is 24-hours only and pet friendly; BYO drinking water and firewood. You will be rewarded with beautiful views and spectacular sunsets across the Ranges and Mt Sonder. Read the plaque on Nathaniel Charles (Neil) Hargrave OBE, applauded for his work towards

NT WWII Gorrie Airfield @philreit
Free Camping Northern Territory

Best for bragging: WWII Gorrie Airfield, Northern Territory

WWII Gorrie Airfield via Instagram: @philreit There are absolutely no facilities – but how many people can say they’ve slept on an airfield? It is suitable for big rigs and pets, camp in dry weather only – and enjoy the views! This little strip of history was the Territory’s largest aircraft service and repair base during World War II. It is hard to imagine that in late 1943, during its peak of operations, it was the base for 6,000 service personnel. Back then, staff could attend the open-air picture theatre (which seated 2000), or relax at the boxing ring, four
