Why we love camping on Straddie, Queensland

10 things to do and see in Tin Can Bay, Queensland

The small fishing and tourist town of Tin Can Bay is on the Cooloola Coast of the Gympie Region, between the Sunshine Coast and Fraser Coast in Queensland. Here’s what we recommend you do and see whilst you are there: Feed wild dolphins The absolute drawcard for Tin Can Bay is its wild dolphins. They come in and feed most mornings and for a few dollars per person you can watch them, and a few more you can feed them a fish yourself!

2 AMAZING Lucky Bay camps in Western Australia

Lucky Bay, Kalbarri – Images Adams Family Travels Most people know Lucky Bay near Esperance in WA but there is also a Lucky Bay campground 46km south of Kalbarri and it doesn’t disappoint. Both are wonderful bases to explore two unique National Parks – one on the west coast the other on the south. For us it was, regretfully, the last beach stop in WA before we crossed the border. Lucky Bay, Kalbarri  How does a protected bay, reef, massive sand dunes and a budget campground only 50 metres to the beach sound? As you travel 2km down a gravel

Swim, fish and camp at Engine Point, Lincoln National Park, South Australia

Our CAMPS Ambassadors Daniel and Manda recently visited Lincoln National Park in the Eyre Peninsula of South Australia. This means the CAMPS App has heaps of up to date info about the different camping options! They said the water was much warmer here – compared to other SA beaches. I wonder why? But with the beautiful hues, clear and shallow ocean, why wouldn’t you be content with Boston Bay right at your front door! It is Australia’s largest natural harbour.  It is 4WD only, no facilities, with limited sites – but note there isn’t a lot of shade, but often wind!
