National Park must stay: Bald Rock Campground, New South Wales

We are definitely coming back to this wonderful spot! You can camp under the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest granite rock! Sites at Bald Rock Campground have plenty of vegetation and privacy, we loved the granite surrounds. Bald Rock was neutral ground, trade route and a meeting place for three of the Aboriginal nations of the area: the Jukambal, Bundgalung and Kamilleroi. The campground would be a wonderful location for groups. There is a sheltered area, but each site had picnic tables – the site we stopped at had a huge one. The firepits were very functional with BBQ plates that rotated.

FREEDOM CAMP at Bowning Recreation Ground, New South Wales

CAMPS at Bowning Rec ground, Victoria Have you been to Bowning, New South Wales? Our first stop was Bowning Hotel – just down the road from the campsite! As we walked in I looked up to one of my favourites poems. “Clancy of the Overflow” adorns the bar.  Established in 1870, the pub is proud of their past patron, Banjo Patterson. In fact, it is said that Banjo Patterson had a drink in town with fellow poet, Henry Lawson. These two Aussie writers were known for ‘the Bulletin debate’, discussing our national identity and whether bush life was romanticised by

How good is Downfall Creek Camp, Queensland

How good does this look? Downfall Creek Camp on Lake Tinaroo is located in the Danbulla forest, a spectacular part of the Atherton Tableland, Queensland. You can spend the day on the water, fishing, waterskiing and swimming, or enjoy the Regeneration walk that leads to the Kauri Creek camping area. CAMPS ambassadors, Dan and Manda said: We had a planned 2 nights stay here, however it turned into 6 nights since you can’t get a better lake side camp in the Atherton Tablelands area! Swimming, camp fires, off grid living, wildlife, and we ran into our friends… so hung out

Beautiful Banksia Bluff Campground, Cape Conran National Park, Victoria

Banksia Bluff Campground, Cape Conran Coastal Park VIC We loved exploring Cape Conran National Park in Victoria’s East Gippsland region.

The popular campground has 135 sites spread out over a kilometre, set amongst mahogany gum and banksia woodland. Campfires are permitted on selected sites and must be within a fire ring. Flushing toilets and an outdoor cold shower is available. All sites have some shade and are generally large. Toilets are

Free camp at JB Plain Hut in the Victorian High Country

JB Plain Hut is the first hut you will come across from Dinner Plain, only 1.8 km towards Hotham Alpine Village in Victoria High Country. Surprisingly, there were several RVs at the carpark entrance on the Great Alpine Road – and at least 4 tents around the hut and my favourite snow gums. One skier set up right on the edge of the plain. A beautiful spot! It is a walk-in site for tent camping – with a drop toilet. The two room hut is pretty rustic inside and out – there is a fireplace, the hut is only for
