Events

Visit Goomeri Pumpkin Festival, Queensland

Pumpkin Roll Competition Goomeri Pumpkin Festival is on May 24 to 26, 2024.  This is an event I have been wanting to visit for years! Melissa Haslam kindly shared her photos. Have you seen the pumpkins rolling? It is on the Sunday as is the street parade and traditional festival games and music. Friday has the Wine and Cheese Under the Stars. This region is a little known gem for wineries! We checked them out a few years back when we visited the Wondai Races, we stayed on the Bjelke-Petersen Dam at Yallakool Caravan Park.

Beaches & Coasts

Why visit Shark Bay, Western Australia?

Eagle Bluff Shark Bay World Heritage Area is situated on the Western Australian Coast, it is actually two bays – and it is area you do not want to miss.

Ten new listings on Fraser Island K’gari

Fraser Island K’gari In light of the royals Harry and Meghan’s visit to Fraser Island, we thought it was high time to add more campsites to the App and CAMPS 10.

First thing to note – K’gari Fraser Island travel is only suited to high clearance, off road 4WDs only – there are soft sandy and rough tracks. Vehicle permits are required. Prebook trailer sites – they are limited, and if in holiday time, well ahead, Fraser can

Camp near the Flying Boats at Lake Boga, Victoria

I had not even heard of Flying Boats – you can also camp on Lake Boga down the road! As you can see from our photos, rain prevailed the day we visited. When the weather is miserable – campers know it’s a good time to shop, eat out or visit a museum… Lake Boga was the centre of a secret military camp in World War II. Heatley loves his war history, so I added the Lake Boga Flying Boat Museum to our trip! It is a very hands-on museum – you can pop your head into the planes. Back and
