When we first started camping, Toowoomba, Queensland was our home base. When new RV travellers, Alison and Greg, wrote to us… 

“Hi Heatley and Michelle,

My Husband and myself have just bought a motorhome. We want to take it somewhere nearby-ish. For its maiden trip. Somewhere that has some activities or things to do while we are there . I have 8 days … We live in Toowoomba in Queensland.

We would be SO grateful if you could inspire us with some options. Thanks in advance.”

I started back straight away. My road trip suggestions brought back great memories (old and recent) – so I had to share with all of you! And so many awesome free camps…

We add two free camps on cliffs – where crocs are in WA and more ocean views in SA. Plus two nature reserves – one close to an ACT waterfall and the other has been changed from a caravan park back to a national park!

Finally, we are invested here at CAMPS – we want generations to continue this freedom camping, road tripping lifestyle us Aussies enjoy. For those new to it, here are some essential dos and don’ts.

Experienced travellers, let us know if you agree?

Keep the wildflower photos coming in please, and remember the flower festivals are still on.
