Open an Easter Basket with a CAMPS Giveaway, Chocolate, Tips, Roadtrips and Campsites

Heatley with Caravan Parks 6 – Taken at Litchfield Tourist Park, Batchelor, Northern Territory We’ve always wanted to see Darwin outside of the dry season! Here we are, a short trip to the NT is better than no trip, wouldn’t you agree?  The highlight has to be returning to Litchfield – one of our most favourite National Parks. We especially love Buley Rockpools and Greenant Creek/Tjaebata Falls – wow! Anyway, we’re at Litchfield Tourist Park during our release of Caravan Parks 6.

MISERY BEACH NAMED AUSTRALIA’S BEST IN 2022 and we missed it by THAT much!

Literally metres! When our lap stopped at Albany, Western Australia we spent a day at the old whaling station on Frenchman Bay. Had we driven a little further east, we would have seen this beautiful beach.  Misery Beach may well have been named for the butchered whales – as their remains of offal and teeth stained its shores. This gruesome history contributed to this little cove winning the Best Beach 2022. That, and the crystal clear turquoise waves and white, white sand. Our photo taken from an old whaler, shows the top of the granite outcrop that also makes it

I hope the Easter Bunny hopped to your home last weekend?

Heatley and I have been on a ‘reboot’, and Easter Sunday marked the end of two months of eating changes and fitness fun. Who’d have thought we could get through the COVID crisis so far without alcohol or the caravan? So with the world turning topsy turvy, and even our ANZAC ceremonies are affected – like many camping families, we have installed a fire-pit at home.  We are extra grateful to return to ‘normal’ Easter traditions: the chocolate bunny and candy egg, a beverage or two by the fire – and we’re telling the kids, it’s almost as good as camping! We have received
