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. Today this is part of pilgrimages to visit all of the extreme cardinal points on the Australian mainland. This proposed park has massive

Apps, Hybrids, 3 free camps – and a 50th!

It was one big weekend for us – Heatley celebrated his 50th birthday on Saturday (cheers!) and Sunday we said goodbye to our caravan! The Jayco Starcraft Outback served us well, but with two teens almost as tall as their dad, and sleeping in their swags, now – the bunks were no longer needed. Thankfully, the popular make was snapped up, less than 2 weeks after we had advertised it. I have been looking back over our Outback Queensland photos, and in light of what you Victorians are going through right now, I am treasuring this time we had with

NSW Bethungra Dam
Free Camping New South Wales

Beautiful night skies at Bethungra Dam and Reserve, New South Wales

This site is not so well known, which makes it even more attractive if you’re hoping to get away from it all! There are good facilities here – toilet, picnic tables, fireplaces, boat ramp, access for big rigs, shade, and it’s pet friendly. There is a big flat gravel area for RVs, and the night skies are perfect for stargazing. In 1895 the dam was constructed as a water supply dam for Junee, north of Ulandra Nature Reserve. After 1906, water quality problems led to its disuse. Blue green outbreaks may mean it is closed for recreation, but it still has
