Happy New Year 2022
Bucket List

Check out these Must See Destinations for 2022

Big4 Rainbow Beach, QLD has beautiful sunset views over Tin Can Bay Inlet. I recently featured Carlo Point when I dined at the new restaurant, Quay Carlo. Forget about guilty resolutions that you’ve probably broken already, in 2022 let’s make some fun travel resolutions!  Yes, it pays to be flexible – I think most of us have had to be in the last couple of years – for us, NSW’s Darling River Run turned into the QLD Natural Science Loop! But it doesn’t hurt to build up your wishlist of camping locations. We have some pearlers for your bucketlist today!

Australia’s westernmost point: Steep Point, Western Australia

Steep Point, Western Australia If you want to see Australia’s most westerly point – then 4WD to Steep Point, and check out a jaw dropping campsite video by our ambassadors.  It is located in the proposed Edel Land National Park, west of Shark Bay – between Kalbarri and Carnarvon, WA. When anchored off the southern tip of Dirk Hartog Island in 1697, the Dutch seafarer Willem de Vlamingh named this point Steyle Hock, translated as Steep Point.

Bucket List: Queensland’s Natural Sciences Loop

Eulo, home of Diprotodon Just back from our winter travels, our plan was to spend most of our time in NSW. Covid has shelved that for a while, instead we drove further west and took on Queenland’s Natural Sciences Loop!  I like my hot baths – what a delight to stop into Charlotte Plains Station (906) 46 km east of Cunnamulla, and have a soak in their soothing artesian waters. I enjoyed a nag with plenty of travellers, including the owner’s family. School holidays meant camping was very popular, but you have a huge area to spread out. The waters
