An ANZAC Story: Push to the Bush

Rod and Pam Elkington On April 15, Pam and Rod Elkington will set out on an outback trip with a difference. Along with other veterans they will visit remote towns and tell them about ANZAC Day.  “When we first started Push to the Bush,” said Rod, “Wyandra had 15-16 kids in the school and we marched on ANZAC Day. There were whole heaps of mums and dads asking questions – turns out they weren’t alive when we came back from Vietnam. “It was the whole family – so we’re actually getting two chops at the cherry!” That was 16 years ago,

Toogoolawah Showgrounds
Budget Campsite

Choose your spot at Toogoolawah Showgrounds

Did you know at Toogoolawah Showgrounds, you can park anywhere you like? And they are community run, not by council but by the Show Society? We spoke to Bill, who sometimes helps out the caretaker, and knows the area, just north of Esk in the Brisbane Valley, quite well. He said you can choose your spot – “all 40 acres – we’ve had nearly 400 caravans here once!” It only costs $20 a night and $3 for the dump point for non patrons. He pointed at the yards, near the entry, “They have a campdraft there every year, plus rodeo

Add Oatlands Historical Society Museum, Tasmania – to your list!

by Leisa Cooper, CAMPS Researcher Whilst out checking some sites and taking photographs of the Southern Midlands of Tasmania, I came across the Oatlands Historical Society Museum at the entrance to the town.  The museum doubles as the town’s Information Centre and is a treasure trove of the area’s history. Expect to spend lots of  time here fossicking amongst the amazing displays of photographs, newspaper items, books, and items of historical significance as well as a large collection of military memorabilia. The museum also offers you the “Oatlands Key” which allows access to historical buildings in Oatlands including the 1829

Local Icons – Twin Towns RSL Club

If you have visited RSLs in NSW you’ll know that most of them are small community clubs. Not in Tweed Heads, NSW. With their history, closest from the border for Queenslanders wanting to play the pokies or visit other NSW freedoms at the time, you are looking at a six-storey high building big enough for 750 cars to park underneath! Their RSL members celebrated a club anniversary in 2018. After a recent $20 million redevelopment, you can dine at one of seven restaurants, stop at four bars, with a huge selection of live music and performers, plus dance floors with

Hop on a Cotton Picker – for free!

South of Moree, and north of The Pilliga in northern NSW, a town well worth a stop is Narrabri.  Take the Narrabri Region Visitor Information Centre, for instance. Not just your regular info centre, inside you will find a giant red cotton picker that you can climb into and “operate”! Our kids loved it, and still remember the experience. The cotton display is a must do, you’ll also find local produce, local attractions – and when we were there last they produced a guide just for kids on the region. Very much appreciated!
