Paperbark Pond Camp: A new Farm Stay in Western Australia

I love a waterside camp spot and Paperbark Pond camp is just that. Located around 5 km north of the Western Australian town of Australind, along Cathedral Avenue is this idyllic 15 acre Farm Stay. The campsite itself is at the back of the property, nestled beside a spring fed pond amongst the paperbarks and peppy trees. There is a table and a fire pit for your seasonal use.  Caravans, motorhomes and camper trailers are welcome as long as you are self contained.  This pretty spot is a budget campsite as well as being pet friendly (by prior arrangement before

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. Situated north of Kalbarri, and south of Carnarvon on the beautiful WA coastline, all of these favourites are accessible with a conventional vehicle: Wild dolphins at Monkey Mia Monkey Mia, probably what we knew the area best for, before our visit. We wanted to check it out and compare it to our very own Tin Can Bay – also known for feeding wild dolphins. It is best to arrive early and

Bucket List

Aussie MUST DO: Taronga Western Plains Zoo at Dubbo, New South Wales

Did you know you can camp at Taronga Western Plains Zoo? Heatley’s mum and sister had the best time there last week! They said:    “5 hrs at the zoo. Fabulous day. Nyla the king cheetah, the giraffes and the Siamang apes were so engaging and our favourites…”   You’ll find it in Dubbo, New South Wales. It’s an interesting town to explore – but even better knowing you can see the lions and giraffes. If you are driving near Dubbo with the kids, add African animals to your spotto list!    I wonder if you’ve been here, too? Here are photos from

See the turtles at Mon Repos

Definitely a thing for your bucket list.  The turtles were THE reason we stayed at Bargara Beach Caravan Park. Mon Repos supports the Pacific region’s largest breeding population of loggerhead turtles, and the largest nesting marine turtles on the eastern mainland Australia. Of course we found lots of other lovely things to do in Bundaberg and the coast, but seeing the turtles was the highlight of the weekend. Not just for us, but also our son and his friend.  Be prepared for a wait. If you are planning, book well ahead. If not, and it is booked out – ask if

Murtho Forest Landing
Camping

On the Murray at Murtho Forest Landing

Located 10 minutes from Paringa, this camping spot offers shade and great camping on the banks of the Murray River. There is a beautiful lookout close by and also a lot of decent fishing spots along the banks where campers are known to catch Callop, Carp, Yabbies and Golden Perch. If you go walk about you will most likely see a variety of wildlife such as pelicans, wrens, kangaroos and rosellas. In the warmer months you might even come across a snake, so keep an eye out to make sure you don’t get an unpleasant surprise. Don’t miss the lookout
