Fee rise for Yorke Peninsula Bush Camping, South Australia

The gorgeous 19 bush camping sites along the Yorke Peninsula had a steep price rise from $10 to $20 per site per night.   Council explained that their bush camping has never had a price increase since camping commenced and had been running at a loss for quite some time. With the significant increase in the arrival of campers along this stretch of coastline, there has been some environmental damage that council is addressing.  They have installed new and improved toilets in all but 2 of the smaller campgrounds, and have employed an extra ranger to help monitor the environmental impact.

Day Trips: Buderim Waterfall, Sunshine Coast, Queensland

We checked out beautiful Buderim Forest Park and Buderim Falls (Sunshine Coast, Qld) this morning.  I’ve always wanted to see it, as we dropped our youngest off at soccer we had an hour before the game. Off Quorn Place, there is the shorter circuit walk – with lots of steps and quite steep in places. We veered left and could hear people chattering and the water. There’s a lovely big bridge across which gives great views of the falls. If we had our togs and more time you’d wander down to the waterhole and cascades. Instead we kept in the
