The Easter bunny is nearly here, check out these camps for the school holidays!

Where are you camping with the family these school holidays?  

After our fantastic High Country adventure, we can recommend so many more awesome locations as we drove through Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. And it was still warm enough for daily swims! Like when we met Claude and Christiane, and Ted and Caz (above) at beautiful Three Mile Dam Campground, near Mt Selwyn, NSW. The water was so refreshing and I watched fish jumping as I cooked dinner. We saw brumbies here, too.

With the school break nearly here, as well as fun farm and station stays – check out these camping options for the holidays! Click on the photos below for each location. And if there are too many squabbles, you can always try this contraption we laughed at, in this week’s funny photo (below)!

Peak season booking ahead is a must, especially with Easter coming up! If you didn’t make it in time see our best tips to still snag a spot.
