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

We’re on the road again – with the mother-in-law!

We’re on the road again! Best of all, we’re travelling with my darling mum! (And sis and bro-in-law). Thankfully, mum adores her son-in-laws and vice versa. But there will be banter, and cards – crib, most likely. We’re travelling WEST! Last weekend we visited Dalby, St George and the new Cunnamulla Hot Springs. Today’s agenda is a mud bath (tell us if you’ve done one), more artesian baths, bush pubs and bush camps! Please say hello if you see us on the road.

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
