Did you have a question about the Camps Australia Wide App?

Robyn sent through these questions about the App, and we thought some of you may have the same queries….. If you download this app does it get updated all the time? Yes   Can you use it off line? Yes Do you need the book? No, but they work really well together as the books provides a different experience. Can the general public update things on the app like other camping apps? Yes, you can review sites and send through updates.  Recent updates make this even easier! When you purchase the app is there any other costs to keep it current

Do you want an Aussie owned independent Camps App?

Over the holidays, on another Facebook group, someone suggested there should be an Aussie owned, independent App for free and budget sites. They were worried these sites were being removed or changed into day use areas in another App.  Well there is – the Camps Australia Wide App actually predates others, and has led the way from 2011. Unlike others, each site is verified before it goes live – so you don’t end up with duplicate sites, it includes live fuel pricing, gas refill and swap outlets, dump points, tourist info centres… Plus you can tell on the map symbols,

New Camos App is released

2 free camps, 2 budget camps and 2 App announcements!

  It is a relief to hear that travel and business restrictions are easing further in our country. We are working hard on a national audit of campsites, but hope to take advantage of the possibility of visiting other states very soon! We celebrated through a screen for a dear friend’s 80th in SA, but we were grateful to travel to a 50th bash in Brisbane on the weekend. Melbourne Cup was also fun here in Rainbow Beach – and although I lucked out on the Race That Stops the Nation, our table won the very prestigious hobby-horse Rainbow Cup!
