Caravan Parks

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

2 Free Camps at Walker Flat, South Australia

2 free pet friendly Murray River camps at Walker Flat, South Australia

I really did walk 9km to see these two FREE Murray River camps at Walkers Flat, SA! Then we floated past in the paddleboat. Turns out, Walker Flat is a protected section of the river. Big paddleboats (and we were holidaying in the biggest in the southern hemisphere – the Murray Princess) don’t fare too well with winds and the forecast wasn’t great. However, walks were an option – so off my sister and I explored with the CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App and CAMPS Pendium. Hettner Landing  You’ll drive past Lake Bywater to get to this camp. Swans were out

QLD Cunningham Highway (The Pocket Reserve)
Free Camping Queensland

Cunningham Highway (The Pocket) Reserve, Queensland

Cunningham Highway (The Pocket) Reserve is free, pet friendly with a bonus of water views and birdlife. It was our first night camping of our Outback Queensland trip, and we were on route to Cloncurry – via Goondiwindi, Carnarvon Gorge, Winton, Longreach, and more. Our youngest, a 15-year-old, was watching a footy game – as he was in our local footy tipping comp. We turned off the highway, and as we drove a couple of hundred metres down to the water, he and his brother squealed – it’s SOS only, Dad. They were talking about their mobile range. Of course,

Budget and waterside camp: Second Creek Beach, Eyre Peninsula, South Australia

Our ambassadors Manda and Daniel thought this was a great small camp. There was only room for three or four sites. It is a flat site and there is a boat ramp (with 4WD access) and toilets, too! Payment is available onsite with an honesty box, but there are no bookings. You can swim, fish and bring your pet. There is a low ocean swell here because of the Islands of the Sir Joseph Banks Group, so no need to bring a surfboard! The camp is located south of Tumby Bay, on the eastern side of the beautiful Eyre Peninsula. What to see

A big thanks to Lyn Hutton who recommended we add this Queensland farm stay to our list!

Free camp at Rocky Creek Glacial Area and explore Mt Kaputar National Park, New South Wales

Image by Nicole Piper Isn’t it amazing what good rain can do? A year ago we showed you photos of Rocky Creek Glacial Area – a freedom camp south west of beautiful Bingara, New South Wales, literally metres off the road to Narrabri, New South Wales. Check out the video we took when we were there, it looks different to this gushing view snapped by Nicole Piper. You can see how you can swim in a series of natural spas! Note: there is no ice or glaciers now, but the geological wonder is a good place to cool off. It’s NSW
