Check out these NEW camps this winter!

If you are following our Across the Centre Roadtrip, you’ll see we’ve been loving Karijini National Park and the Pilbara. The best bit was finally getting into some waterfall hopping, and icy cold Karijini swims, like Fern Pool. Not only have we been updating new sites (we’ve found a few newbies around Newman) we’ve also been making sure we remove or don’t list camps that are no longer available. You can check out more NEW sites from around the country below and in the CAMPS App! PILDAPPA ROCK REOPENS AND A NEW CAMPGROUND South Australia’s Pildappa Rock reopens after upgrades

New Zeehan RV Camp, Tassie

New RV Camp for Zeehan, Tasmania

In an area as vast as the West Coast of Tasmania, the new Zeehan RV Camp is a welcome sight and a new addition to our Camps listings. Once known as the Silver City from her mining boom days, Zeehan is 300 kilometres and a 4 hour drive from Hobart. That makes this new camp a much needed boost to other accommodation on the West Coast.   It is intended for self contained vehicles only, is budget priced with large, flat grassy sites.  It is a peaceful scenic spot and you’ll be able to manoever your vehicle easily. Zeehan has one

Exploring the Meander Valley, Tasmania

Travelling further afield from Launceston, the Meander Valley Highway is well named. It is so pretty,  you want to take your time exploring,  what I imagine,  a drive through the English countryside might look like – quaint towns, historic buildings, churches and a village green. Driving into Hadspen just on the left as you are coming in off the highway is the Discovery Holiday Park Hadspen.  It has an IGA attached to it, so you can get fuel and supplies here. It was nice to see those little extras on offer as well like a coffee machine in the camp

ANZAC Day Memorial Park Goondiwindi
ACT

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them

Memorial Park Goondiwindi The Ode always brings a tear to my eye. ANZAC Day is a solemn reminder of all the lives lost and impacted by war. This year it also commemorates the 80th anniversary of D-Day in WWII and Army women serving overseas. As we travel Australia, we see war memorialised in avenues of trees, swimming pools, gates, arches, cenotaphs, crosses, gardens, hospitals – even roads and bridges. More often, we see cenotaphs, obelisks or a “digger” statue, like this one from Goondiwindi, Queensland. On April 25, Australians gather around them, to remember all who have fought for our

Get egg-cited about these Easter camping destinations

The Easter Bilby and Bunny are almost here, and we hope you are camping! Our youngest was working in “Lonnie”, Tassie last week, and sent us pics from his hike into beautiful Cataract Gorge. (We didn’t realise we’d been pronouncing Launceston wrong – it’s not “Lawn” but “Lon”!) I love it when our kids send me photos, and especially that they are travellers and campers! This week’s newsletter is full of Easter savings, destinations and tips! Also note that school holidays scramble across the states – 29 March -14 April for QLD, VIC and WA; 6-15 April in NT and

The Duck Hole at Farnese Olivo – budget site near Hobart, Tasmania

A question I see frequently asked in social media posts is “Are there any free or budget sites near Hobart?” The truth is there aren’t many, one or two plus a couple of caravan parks, though there are more a little further out.  So we are very happy to add The Duck Hole at Farnese Olivo to the list! Farnese Olivo is a budget friendly, family hobby farm set on 5  acres overlooking the Coal River Valley in Acton Park. It is only 15 minutes from the Hobart CBD.   It is an historic farm dam, offering a quiet rural experience.
