Mary Kathleen Old Mine QLD
Camping

Freedom camp beside an abandoned uranium mine at Mary Kathleen, Queensland

If you are self contained and looking for a quiet camp spot away from the Flinders Highway the old Mary Kathleen township site between Cloncurry and Mount Isa is well worth a visit. The road into the old town is slowly deteriorating, but still accessible with care. Once you get to the old town, there is nothing left except the roadways and some concrete slabs, the land owner allows overnight stays as long as you do not light a fire. Mary Kathleen was first surveyed as a mining town in 1956 after the discovery of the largest known deposit of

Have you heard of Gnomesville, Western Australia?

20km from Dardanup, Western Australia is Gnomesville.  Apparently, there are more than one version of how it all started and so a sign was erected detailing “The True Beginning”.  There are thousands of gnomes scattered around the site.  Many have been left there by individuals, whole families and various groups of people, including a caravan club.   We had heard of Gnomesville before we left home and so Maureen purchased a gnome to take and leave at the site. We even saw some gnomes which had a message indicating that they had been left by visitors from other states. Thanks to

Visit Cooma and Snowy Hydro, New South Wales

About 114 km south of Canberra on the Monaro Highway, you’ll come to a regular stop off for us – Cooma, New South Wales. It’s a great base for groceries, shopping and a top museum. The Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre was hands on fun for our whole family. We really recommend visiting her before you explore the Snowy Mountains – as it gives you perspective on just how hydro power works. Displays really demonstrate the water flow, as well as the sheer scale of the project. Construction took a whopping 25 years to complete, from 1949-1974, and over 100,000 workers
