Camps Australia Wide - Michelle kitting out the new Caravan kitchen

Happy Mother’s Day!

Rain, rain and more rain here today! But it is a long weekend AND our region has another May long weekend coming up for the local show.  It was so good to commemorate ANZAC Day with our community, unlike last year – and for some Western Australians. We’ve seen so many vans and RVs out there, I think everyone who can, is enjoying the freedom.  Here am I, our youngest took a photo of me kitting out the ‘kitchen’ of the new van. We can’t wait to hit the road!  Mother’s Day is just around the corner on May 9, and

Camps Australia Wide - Our Hybrid Van

An ANZAC pilgrimage, 2 budget and 2 free camps plus a new van!

Our new Hybrid Van I think all of us travel with purpose with Camps Australia Wide. You may want  to experience destinations, and immerse yourself in our National Parks, farmstays or conservation reserves.  Others stick closer to communities, reliving history, understanding regions and industry, as well as meeting locals – living life in our outback and bush.  You might travel to fish, or follow wildflowers, silo art trails or attend festivals.  Some of us plan our travels around a specific theme. I met a couple last week, who not only travel with a true purpose but they inspire others to

Standown Park, QLD

Between Gympie and the Cooloola Coast, is a little oasis called Standown Park, QLD site 212 in Camps 11, 256 in Caravan Parks 5 or find it on the Camps Australia Wide App.  As we turned into their road, kangaroos were there to welcome us.  The pet friendly caravan park has powered sites and budget unpowered out of the way sites as there are 18 acres beside forestry, set amongst gardens, wide open spaces and memorial walls.  Standown is a military term for ‘rest/relax’ and that is exactly what you do here. Independently owned, Pam and Rod Elkington say the property was originally a ginger, pumpkin and watermelon farm

Life on the Road

An ANZAC Story: Push to the Bush

Rod and Pam Elkington On April 15, Pam and Rod Elkington will set out on an outback trip with a difference. Along with other veterans they will visit remote towns and tell them about ANZAC Day.  “When we first started Push to the Bush,” said Rod, “Wyandra had 15-16 kids in the school and we marched on ANZAC Day. There were whole heaps of mums and dads asking questions – turns out they weren’t alive when we came back from Vietnam. “It was the whole family – so we’re actually getting two chops at the cherry!” That was 16 years ago,

Camps Australia Wide - The caravan mirrors are back on!

Our hybrid from Mountain Trail RV

The caravan mirrors are back on! We’ve already had the question: what is a hybrid? When you are talking hybrid vans – it is a combination. It has the comforts of a caravan plus the access and easy towing of a camper trailer.  Because the van is only 2 metres wide (literally all bed) – it means its tyres follow the tyres of our 4WD. Heatley felt the difference as soon as we left Long Point RV in Burleigh Heads, QLD.  Another bonus of the width is that it will fit snugly beside our house. Something our previous ‘normal’ width caravan

Eumundi RV Stop Over

Eumundi RV Stop Over: top spot but still closed

On our way back home, we stopped into the Eumundi Markets and the Eumundi RV Stop Over. We noted it says it is still closed due to COVID (which you will see on the Camps Australia Wide App), so we put in a query. Here’s there reply, that they are: “just not an RV park but also a very busy car park on market days. We have plans to re-open over coming months and once we do, we will be putting the information up on our website…. We are limited to 20 per night…” We thought it looked a great
