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

Buchan Caves, VIC We report glad tidings – three major tourist attractions have reopened: Buchan Caves in Victoria, plus Ebor Falls and Wombeyan Caves New South Wales. Buchan Munji (Buchan Caves Reserve) When we visited only a couple of weeks back, Buchan locals were not sure if Buchan Caves was opening in a week or closed for a year! Following major flooding that hit the area on Boxing Day, we are pleased to hear the caves will reopen to visitors ahead of the Easter long weekend. Home to Victoria’s largest cave system, tours and the campground bookings are due to

Go camping at these NEW caravan parks and sites!

Whilst we’ve been scouring the coast and country – our team have been working hard adding new sites to our free Camps Australia Wide App! One of the new sites we came across is a budget pet-friendly camp, Buchan Rec Ground, Victoria. As the caves are still closed, the community REALLY needs visitors to come and support local businesses. Anyway, we checked over 50 camps in one morning alone! And hundreds more in our 5 week trip – so keep posted with this newsletter (like the sites below) and the Camps Australia Wide App feed for updates. PET FRIENDLY RACEWAY

We had a ‘Buchan’ good time!

  Buchan Recreation Reserve Update March 19:  We’ve just been advised that the Buchan Caves and Reserve will reopen on March 26th in time for Easter. Pronounced ‘Bucken’ – Buchan in East Gippsland Victoria needs travellers! Please visit and support the community and businesses until the Buchan Caves and campground reopen after the tragic flash floods last December. Two tourists heartbreakingly lost their lives in the flash floods on Boxing Day. However, the community is still reeling – we are told businesses are closing without the regular visitor numbers. When we visited, locals were not sure if Buchan Caves was

10 camps that don’t cost you a cent!

Boy, have we seen some awesome free camps lately! Although we’ve based ourselves at Dinner Plain- we’ve had epic drives through the Victorian High Country.
