Darwin here I come!

Reader’s update by Kaz Nagle I have mine. Live every day by it.  This determines my address every afternoon.  I even draw in it. Perth to Melbourne solo  – serious about taking the left turn at Port Augusta due to current situation in Melbourne.  Have to be in Melbourne for son’s wedding in October.  I take so many detours thanks to your publication just for a look or to stay the night a few hundred metres (yes metres) down the road. My vista changes every morning I wake up and every evening when I go to bed. Need to service the

Standown Park QLD

Standown Park, Queensland

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

The NEW Camps Australia Wide Site Symbols

  It has come in handy – we’ve booked holidays in Coffs Harbour, Sunshine Coast and Surfers.  It’s good because of the symbols – like a playground for the kids, also petrol stations and shopping centres. It’s really good for me, I find it easy and I don’t know how to use maps! The kids are 6 and 10, they look at the pictures and are learning from the symbols and know if it has a playground or toilet.  We save caravan parks in favourites and eliminate them until we find the site we like. You can tell if they have toilets,

Our Stay at Leichhardt Lagoon

Words by Desmond Fittock.  Photography by Beverley Fittock We arrived at Leichhardt Lagoon caravan and camping park on 31st July 2015, 170 years almost to the day since Ludwig Leichhardt camped by the Norman River on 19th July 1845.  Leichhardt was one of Australia’s early explorers at the time of his camp there he was on his 1844/45 expedition from Morton Bay to Port Essington, NE of Darwin.  I have read that Leichhardt camped at latitude 17 degrees 49 minutes, Leichhardt Lagoon is at latitude 17 degrees 51 minutes.  This may be why he is reported to have rejoiced at

Traveller’s Review: Foreshore Caravan Park, Nambucca Heads

Image Nev Cooper Nev and Alicia Cooper and their dog often stay at the Foreshore Caravan Park at Nambucca Heads, on the northern NSW coast. Please note in your CARAVAN PARKS 5 books NSW site 379, that the park IS pet friendly, there is a BBQ, but not a camp kitchen, and add in WiFi, dump point and drive through sites.  Just south of Coffs Harbour, the Nambucca coastline and river is a beautiful part of the world. Nev told us, “To give this park a plug, it is a small basic park close to shops with friendly owners,  is close
