Climb Australia’s largest granite rock – at Bald Rock National Park, New South Wales

My adrenaline is still on overdrive after climbing down the southern hemisphere’s largest granite monolith! When I’ve visited Stanthorpe, Queensland, I stopped at Girraween National Park, on the way to the border town, Wallangarra. It is full of granite domes, balancing rocks, and epic walks. I remember them being a bit scary, too! Well, Bald Rock National Park adjoins Girraween. And we had quite the adventure here, that is NOT for the faint hearted. After lunch and checking out the lovely Bald Rock Campground and local wildlife, we read the walk info. “Grade 5! No way!” said I. Ever the diplomat, Heatley assures, “We’ll

Turtle Bay – Adams Family Travels Turtle Bay is approximately 88km from the Barge landing point on Dirk Hartog Island, WA. It is located at the northern end of the island and is a private campsite.

Poona Lake Rainbow Beach Queensland

Poona Lake is a hidden wonder in Rainbow Beach, Queensland

We love Poona Lake. Like K’gari Fraser Island lakes, you’ll see rainforest tower above ancient sand dunes – it’s a rare heritage marvel! It is a short, shaded walk into a gorgeous hidden wonder, beloved by locals and visitors.  Poona Lake is the largest of its kind in Cooloola, 12 hectares of water!  Perched lakes are the most common here and form from a ‘saucer’ of organic matter makes a depression in the dunes. Then, water collects and a lake is born. As you enter the water, it is crystal clear. Then at a couple of metres – pitch black!

Family friendly: Borumba Deer Park, Imbil, Queensland

CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE loves Borumba Deer Park – and keep coming back. As you can see from the photos we tend to visit with other families, we’ve been there for summer breaks, karaoke nights, as well as boating on nearby Borumba Dam. Here’s a perspective from a younger family, and Sunshine Coast local, Emma Thompson. Camping with a 5-year-old and an energetic dog as a single Mum certainly has its challenges but once I had worked out the basics, like how to put a tent up on your own (in case you were wondering the answer was an Instant Up’ tent), then there
