Kings Canyon Northern Territory “You only get 18 summers. One of the most valuable things I’ve learnt over the years from having 7 kids is this… Do not miss out on school holidays with your kids.

And then they are all grown up. … I’d encourage you to take some time to plan some things this school holidays. It doesn’t have to be expensive. They want YOU and your time more than anything.

Where to camp in Thargomindah, Queensland

It was raining heavily as we drove towards Thargomindah. Roads had been busy up to Eulo, as the Big Red Bash was coming to Birdsville. We were looking forward to some indoor meals, a laundry for our muddy clothes and warming up… Thargomindah’s Explorers  Caravan Park gave us just that! We called ahead and snagged the last powered site – perfectly positioned outside the warm camp kitchen We parked up and explored town – stopping into the Thargomindah Pub for a hot lunch – yum! Make sure you check out the Visitor Centre, too. Explorers Caravan Park is huge, see more

What to see and do at Arthur River in Tasmania’s North West

Boasting three budget campgrounds and a caravan park, Arthur River is a must do!

FREEDOM CAMP OF THE MONTH – Sandy Creek Pub, Queensland

There were still a few campers around, and a couple of vans leaving when we dropped into Sandy Creek Pub, last week. You camp in the grassy paddock next door with some farm animals, and enter via a gate. The pub is not far from the Cunningham Highway, near Warwick in Queensland’s Darling Downs. We loved the sign here about patronising the hotel. The site is for patrons only, with a donation for charity and a fee for a shower. But it is great to find this freedom camp here, because the only other options in Warwick, are caravan parks.
