Must see and dos in Julia Creek, Queensland

East of Cloncurry on the Overlander’s Way, Julia Creek have made tourism their business, an RV Friendly Town that welcomes travellers, offering fun ‘bucket-list’ activities for all. It was the combination of a soak in hot springs and seeing a little native marsupial that made sure this location was a stopover night. Book to see the dunnart feeding at the visitor centre, daily at 10am and 2pm (weekdays only from November to March). I didn’t know what a dunnart was – but this rare little critter, and the promise of an artesian bath, kept us here overnight. That’s not all

CAMPS at Ayers Rock Resort

Camp at the Red Centre: Ayers Rock Resort, Northern Territory

CAMPS at Ayers Rock Resort As a caravan park, Ayers Rock Resort at Yulara, NT has all you need. It is pet friendly, has room for Big Rigs, amenities, laundry, camp kitchen, playground, pool and shade of the desert oaks. We loved the hill – where you see “The Rock“, and can toast the excitement of being so close to Uluru and Kata Tjuta. It is pricey, but this is the only option so close to Uluru for camping, and you do want to book in advance. You do have access to the resort restaurants and bars, shops, galleries, information

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

New Outback Camp in Beltana, South Australia

If you are travelling along the Outback Highway in South Australia, we’d recommend a short detour into the historic town of Beltana.  Unfortunately nearby Beltana Station is no longer offering camping, but the small town of Beltana has filled that gap.  Approximately 12 km east of the old Roadhouse turnoff (the road is currently being sealed with bitumen),  volunteers from the Progress Association have been busy creating a place for campers to feel welcome.  Beltana is a State Heritage listed town with a remarkable array of old buildings and an impressive town hall, the site of which has been chosen
