Congratulations Tin Can Bay Tourist Park in Queensland

Well done Steve and Mel May from Tin Can Bay Tourist Park in the Gympie Region! They have been awarded Tourist Events Queensland ‘Best of Queensland Experience 2022’. We caught up with the couple at the Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic recently, after they’ve had a very busy winter. The award is presented to Queensland tourism businesses who consistently provide exceptional customer experiences, and are recommended by travellers, so Mel and Steve should be rightly proud! Each time we visit, the team have upgraded the park – with amenities, pool and a fabulous laundry! Their new camp kitchen is beautiful!

Caravan parks and a natural hot tub at Bitter Springs, Northern Territory

Camps Ambassadors Dale and Tracey enjoyed a hot soak in the Northern Territory recently! Bitter Springs is definitely one of our favourite hot springs. Set amongst the palm trees in the Elsey National Park, you hop in the thermal spring creek and float down with the current for about 15 minutes til you get to another set of steps, where you hop out and walk back to the start and do it all again. You can see from their video how glorious the water is! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3rL7xBvaZI The crystal clear, 32 degree temperature of the water lets you see freshwater turtles if

UPDATE on Menindee Lakes Caravan Park, New South Wales

Image by Lesley Meade of nearby Lake Pamamaroo (from I Love Camping Australia Wide Facebook Group) Please update your books! Menindee Lakes Caravan Park, which is located on a Crown land reserve on the eastern shores of Lake Menindee, was brought under the management of the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment – Crown Lands in August 2020. The managers have had to make a lot of changes, there is no longer a dump point, cabins, camp kitchen, BBQs, picnic tables or shade! Water is now non potable, and the amenities for people with disabilities are not at the required standard.

CAMPS at Ayers Rock Resort

Camp at the Red Centre: Ayers Rock Resort, Northern Territory

CAMPS at Ayers Rock Resort As a caravan park, Ayers Rock Resort at Yulara, NT has all you need. It is pet friendly, has room for Big Rigs, amenities, laundry, camp kitchen, playground, pool and shade of the desert oaks. We loved the hill – where you see “The Rock“, and can toast the excitement of being so close to Uluru and Kata Tjuta. It is pricey, but this is the only option so close to Uluru for camping, and you do want to book in advance. You do have access to the resort restaurants and bars, shops, galleries, information

Camp at Patchewollock Hotel, Victoria

Established after the First World War, Patchewollock is a small town in North-West Victoria with a population of less than 200. Located 41 km SW of Ouyen or 49 km N of Hopetoun, “Patche” is home to an amazing silo art piece by Brisbane-based street artist Fintan Magee, sometimes referred to as the ‘Australia’s Banksy’. The giant mural depicts local sheep and grain farmer, Nick ‘Noodle’ Hulland, chosen for his ‘classic farmer looks’ and his strong connection to the farming community. Patchewollock Caravan Park (formerly Patche Sunset Retreat) has closed! However you can still camp there, it is now called

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

Australia’s only fully off grid caravan park: Fowlers Bay, South Australia

by CAMPS Ambassadors, Overland Exposure Fowlers Bay is very small coastal town that has sand dunes, a jetty, some whales in the right season and that’s about it! We did stay at the ONLY FULLY OFF GRID CARAVAN PARK in Australia and the owners were lovely. If you plan to stay here, just remember they run everything off grid so just like you and us when free camping need to be mindful of water and electricity use. The playground was fab and the Ringneck Parrots were chatty too! There is a communal fire pit that is lit each evening. OH
