Take a sunflower trip

The Darling Downs in Queensland is THE place for sunflower drives. Sunflowers are a summer crop and only flower for 3-4 weeks. But you can find sunflowers from December to March and more on Darling Downs road trips.  For next season, pick your own at Warraba Sunflowers at Cambooya, Queensland. It is now closed. Tips: Please be respectful of farmers. Only go into properties if you have permission. Otherwise, take photos from the fence and enjoy that colour. More to see and do (from a local – Heatley grew up here, and our first bub was born in Toowoomba): Lake Leslie Goomburra State

Granite Sky Walk, WA - Image Overland Exposure
Immerse Yourself In Nature

Push the limits with these hikes and views near Albany, Western Australia

Granite Sky Walk, WA – Image Overland Exposure CAMPS Ambassador, Manda said “Albany Region in WA seems to like you pushing yourself and your limits to walk at heights! The Gap and Granite Sky Walk are both 20-30minutes out of Albany.  The Granite Sky Walk is not for the faint hearted, it is a 2km hike which is a constant climb, then a huge boulder manoeuvre, a ladder and then walking on a platform on the edge of the granite boulder. The Gap (at Torndirrup National Park) is not as difficult, even wheelchair/pram friendly.” “When you come to places like this, you

New arc treetop walkway planned for Dorrigo, New South Wales

Stop into the Warrumbungle Visitor Centre, New South Wales

The Warrumbungle National Park Visitor Information Centre is a beauty! We love info centres for all they deliver on suggestions for what to see and do – but this is why we think this one is a must see if you are visiting the park: Displays are interactive – you really do learn more by doing. It was no chore for our kids to bring me back facts here. Displays encourage touch – the fun facts and moving parts kept our crew occupied. The views – you can look right out to volcanic remnants that the park is known for

10 things to do and see in Tin Can Bay, Queensland

The small fishing and tourist town of Tin Can Bay is on the Cooloola Coast of the Gympie Region, between the Sunshine Coast and Fraser Coast in Queensland. Here’s what we recommend you do and see whilst you are there: Feed wild dolphins The absolute drawcard for Tin Can Bay is its wild dolphins. They come in and feed most mornings and for a few dollars per person you can watch them, and a few more you can feed them a fish yourself! Unlike Monkey Mia where a few people in a huge group are selected to feed their dolphins, everyone

Aussie MUST DO: Taronga Western Plains Zoo at Dubbo, New South Wales

Did you know you can camp at Taronga Western Plains Zoo? Heatley’s mum and sister had the best time there last week! They said:    “5 hrs at the zoo. Fabulous day. Nyla the king cheetah, the giraffes and the Siamang apes were so engaging and our favourites…”   You’ll find it in Dubbo, New South Wales. It’s an interesting town to explore – but even better knowing you can see the lions and giraffes. If you are driving near Dubbo with the kids, add African animals to your spotto list!    I wonder if you’ve been here, too? Here are photos from

Tips on Touring Tasmania

Ezra from the UK, is hiring a motorhome, and organising a week’s camping in Tasmania. He said places are booking out already, and was hoping for some advice…  Now, we’re just back from Tasmania and it is no surprise bookings are busy. Especially around that time. We had trouble, too – but there was still room in free camps. Firstly – here is our latest article that is perfect for you. I would recommend choosing one corner of Tasmania (depending on where you fly into Tasmania), otherwise in a week you’ll spend a lot of time driving. Many free camps

See the turtles at Mon Repos

Definitely a thing for your bucket list.  The turtles were THE reason we stayed at Bargara Beach Caravan Park. Mon Repos supports the Pacific region’s largest breeding population of loggerhead turtles, and the largest nesting marine turtles on the eastern mainland Australia. Of course we found lots of other lovely things to do in Bundaberg and the coast, but seeing the turtles was the highlight of the weekend. Not just for us, but also our son and his friend.  Be prepared for a wait. If you are planning, book well ahead. If not, and it is booked out – ask if
