Kings Canyon Free Camp - Image Overland Exposure
Bucket List

Ginty’s Lookout, an overnight camp with a great Red Centre view, Northern Territory

The Red Centre of Northern Territory is internationally famous for good reason! CAMPS Ambassadors Dan and Manda were travelling from the West MacDonnell Ranges. They said, “We hit some more dirt roads and made our way towards Kings Canyon. We found this great free camp (Ginty’s Lookout) which was right on the edge of the escarpment overlooking the valley. We enjoyed sitting on the rocks, watching the sunset and sharing a drink.” Whether you are traveling west like them, descending down into Kings Canyon on your way to Uluru, or travelling back to Alice, this is a perfect spot!

Oriental Claims Historic Area, Victoria
Camping

Explore the Oriental Claims Historic Area, Victoria

The Great Alpine Road in Victoria has many hidden gems and amazing camping locations. Think campfires beside creek beds or historic cattleman’s huts. We were driving on the outskirts of Omeo, south of Hotham and Dinner Plain Alpine areas, and could see in the distance red cliffs. My travel companion followed his nose and we happened upon very interesting remains of the Victorian goldrush. The Oriental Claims Historic Area is a picnic area 3 km south west of town. Dogs are allowed if on leash, but there is no camping. Turn right to the picnic area first, and read up

Must See: Cobbold Gorge, Queensland

Hidden in the Gulf Savannah of Queensland is a natural wonder you will want to put on your bucket list. CAMPS Ambassadors Dan and Manda cruised the gorge and trekked the walls, capturing these beautiful images. The only access to this unique landmark is via a guided tour. The rugged sandstone cliffs are up to 19 metres high, and includes an area of about 80 square kilometres. The gorge narrows to just 2 metres in places which indicates that it is the youngest known gorge in Queensland today. Be wowed by the geological processes you will see! They stayed at

Wollumbin National Park, New South Wales closures continue

From our visit in January 2020 – the National Park is currently closed The chains at the top of MT WARNING have been removed in the currently closed Wollumbin National Park (Courier Mail). Having grown up in the NSW Tweed Valley, I remember these chains well – they helped climbers reach the rocky summit – in the final leg of a 4 km hike up to the top of a mountain, where you could view Australia’s first sunrise of the day. The formerly known Mount Warning National Park was shut last March “to comply with COVID-19 rules on public gatherings and

Australia’s westernmost point: Steep Point, Western Australia

Steep Point, Western Australia If you want to see Australia’s most westerly point – then 4WD to Steep Point, and check out a jaw dropping campsite video by our ambassadors.  It is located in the proposed Edel Land National Park, west of Shark Bay – between Kalbarri and Carnarvon, WA.

Today this is part of pilgrimages to visit all of the extreme cardinal points on the Australian mainland. This proposed park has massive
