Alpaca Magic, Sutton, NSW
Camping

NEW SITE: Alpaca Magic, Sutton, New South Wales

I’ll be straight, this site isn’t budget priced. There are no facilities, adults only – it is self contained RVs only. But you get to camp near alpacas and llamas, and it is super close to Canberra! I visited Alpaca Magic recently and met the owner Glynda (she tells me like the Good Witch of the North, spelling that is.) Knowing my musicals, I guessed she was talking about Wizard of Oz. Her llamas and alpacas certainly thought she was special. Owner Glynda feeds her Alpaca’s Glynda gave us a little tour, there are a variety of paddocks to camp

Corella Creek Country Farmstay, Queensland

Image by Some WIld Ride When you are driving the Flinders Highway, it can be a long time between stops! As you travel between Julia Creek and Richmond, there is an interesting spot to turn off to. When we pulled in in winter 2020, Corella Creek Country Farmstay and cafe had been hard hit by floods and Covid closures. Since then, owner Georgi has made lots of headway. The small bush camping ground also has an additional self contained studio and two budget rooms, hot tub and deck. They pride themselves on recycling – as it is a long way

GO WEST and stay with a farmer!

Four Corners by Paul Zuccarello @mariachi.abandoned.melbourne via Instagram One of the wonderful things we do as a nation, is get behind the battlers, and help out those in need. We’ve seen it with the bushfires and the MILLIONS of funds directed to communities reeling from lost lives, homes and livelihoods from fire damage. We don’t want Australians in the drought areas to be forgotten – so we are asking you, our CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE Community, to visit these drought-stricken areas. Rains will come (in some places have had a little), but it will still take years to recover from this drought. So
