Camp at these spectacular island destinations

Just back from North Stradbroke Island and Townsville – we are summer refreshed from the Queensland sun. As for islands, we really rate Straddie. It was our first-ever trip. Travelling with mates, we simply booked at their chosen campground, pet friendly Flinders Beach. Anyway, we tell you all about it – including the best walk I’ve done this year. It was so breathtaking, I’m putting it on my top ten Aussie walk list.  Plus we share more island hopping to quokkas in WA, a city break and convict jail, an island beside an island and pet friendly van trip with

It’s time for swimming and camping now school’s out for summer

Heatley and Michelle at Cranky Rock If school isn’t shut for summer in your state, it soon will be. So it is time to pack up and cool down at a beach, lake, or river…  Check out these awesome attractions – beachside in Tassie, four waterside camps under a Queensland mountain and a secret trail the kids will love in WA. By the way, if a camp has swimming nearby (natural options like creeks, oceans and lagoons) or a swimming pool – you can filter in our CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App for either or both! There was plenty of swimming

Hello Summer! Cool down and camp along Australia’s Waterfall Way

We just had the BEST week. Our “schoolies” included 5 waterfalls, 8 national parks, 8 pubs and a whopping 20 waterside camps! We followed major rivers – the mighty Clarence and Belliger, lulled to sleep on Nymboida’s rapids, onto dips in the Gwydir and Bielsdown Rivers as well as the Reedy and Never Never Creeks. From uggies to togs, we checked out farms, showgrounds, bridges, halls, forests, hikes, a suspension bridge, a skywalk and met lovely fellow travellers. Instead of a partridge in a pear tree, there was a very noisy cockatoo! I admit, because we are scoping out new camps,

Do you really love animal encounters? Here’s our top picks and camps

Mamma turtles are nesting and Year 12s around the country are leaving their nests for sandy schoolies’ destinations! I know there will be a few around our area camping at K’gari Fraser Island and Inskip Point.  You really can’t get closer to nature, can you, than when you are camping? Here are some animal encounters at an outback beachside station! We chat about our turtle experience and island dingos in Queensland, birdwatching and treks in Victoria’s Alpine National Park and where to find Tassie wombats… Heatley’s mum and sister had the best time at a NSW zoo last week!

5 country pub crackers for great camping

It’s been a big week for us! SOOO good to be back on the road again, even just for a quick weekender! The new deck at Theebine Hotel is huge and we were lucky to be among the first to dance on it. Pubs and camping are a fun combination – so we’ve filled the newsletter with them. Most of these camps are free and all are pet friendly. We take you to an awesome NT camp close to Berry Springs and the Territory Wildlife Park, a WA tavern just over an hour from Perth, a riverside pub near the NSW
