Book now for a fun Queensland & New South Wales Caravan Clubs State Rally

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

Family Travel Games: CAMPS Spotto

We’ve been playing this for years in our family……following the grand tradition of car trips with the Aulds. Four siblings would be vying for the first “spotting” of cat/dog/cow/kangaroo (sign OK) etc…all for a few cents a find! A car trip full of peace and quiet was well worth the price of some scrap paper and a few coins. Here are a few to get you started. surfboard on a car police car boat brumbies (extra if live) fire station windmill campervan My favourite – Belted Galloways, spotted just after we landed in Launceston, Tasmania outside historic Evandale Friesian cow
