Jundah Hotel Caravan Park is now free!

Jundah Hotel Caravan Park Queensland is now free!

by Jed Elmer We are all feeling the pinch financially at the moment, with many campsites and caravan parks increasing their fees year on year, and free sites sometimes feeling a bit ‘bare bones’. It’s a rare pleasure to hear about a council bucking the trend and making a formerly paid site – now free for all patrons. Jundah Hotel Caravan Park is located between Longreach and Windorah on the upper reaches of Cooper Creek, just south of Stonehenge and west of the Welford National Park. The site features basic but clean amenities, is suitable for all vehicle types, including

Uki Hotel
Camping Food

On the verandah at the Mt Warning Hotel, Uki, New South Wales

We thoroughly recommend this lovely pub with friendly staff at Uki.  Arriving late (we lost an hour crossing the border into NSW), fortunately the pub was still open for meals. I snagged a table on the verandah, and sipped our cold drinks whilst we waited for lunch to arrive.  My niece said it was, ‘the best chicken schnitzel I had in a long time’. Real chicken breast – and the gravy is included. Likewise, our son loved his pizza, the rest of us ate the yummy schnitzels as well. I had our choice of two sides – for example: spuds,

Ganmain Hotel

Top Aussie Pubs: the Ganmain Hotel

Our road trip to the snow, we planned to stop a night within an hour or two of Albury. Ganmain is almost south of West Wyalong – two towns we had never driven through, something we love to do – is travel on roads unknown to us. This night we hit the jackpot! Firstly the winter sunset was AMAZING. It was a huge day in the car, so as the five of us tumbled out, a good meal was on our mind.  The Ganmain Pub is not pretentious. There’s a friendly main bar – busy that night. Also opening to

Coopernook Hotel, NSW
Budget Campsite

A funny thing happened on the way to the Coopernook Hotel…

We’d ordered our lunch, found a table out the front of the pub with fabulous water views, and wandered over to the jetty for a look-see. On the opposite bank, a tinny was backed up to the edge, and plonked in the water. I thought the two fellows were off for a fish. But no, however, there was a plan. They rowed directly across the river, and they didn’t worry about the boat ramp. I spotted them moments later, happy at the bar. It would have it’s benefits, living ‘next door’ to a pub. Coopernook Hotel is not just any
