Crampton Island Geocaching

While we stayed at the Free Camping Spot at Lake Tabourie Beach I looked at any geoaches that would be close enough for us to walk to, but were not too hard to find.

Silly me! We decided to try the Crampton Island Geocaching that could only be done when the tide is right – the island is cut off from the beach when the tide is in!

Lake Tabourie Beach New South Wales

While we were camping at Meroo National Park Free Camping Spot we were able to walk along the beach nearly every day – we had the beach to ourselves {almost!}. It was incredible – it was cold but when the sun was out we enjoyed every moment of the Lake Tabourie Beach New South Wales. The ocean, the sand, the waves, the salt, the sun – its pure heaven on earth ๐Ÿ™‚

Meroo National Park Free Camping Spot

After we stayed with friends in Newcastle we headed to the Lane Cove National Park for the weekend. We froze our butt off big time staying there – the showers had run out of “Hot Water” while we were there the first night so we had to search other showers the next night.

I didn’t get any pics of the Lane Cove National Park because I have already taken pics last time we stayed there {thought I had shared that in a blog post but I can’t find it!} The National Park is very expensive to stay there over night – they make you pay for children over the age of 12 as an adult ๐Ÿ™

Yarramalong Weir Free Camping Spot

From Ban Ban Springs we stayed over night in Toowoomba. The next dayย we visited Toowoomba Japanese Gardens and Picnic Point Toowoomba we decided to head to Yarramalong Weir Free Camping Spot for the nights. Its not fair from Toowoomba, and we wanted an easy afternoon of driving, with a chance to set up camp in the daylight.

Luckily we had our dinner cooked in our Thermal Cooker so it was ready that night – mind you we forgot to buy greens for it so we had “Chicken Curry” with only potatoes! It was still very yummy. And it was the very first time we have ever been in bed and asleep by 7.30pm!! Yep we were cold, tired and in bed fast asleep early – I turned off my phone before going to sleep but David forgot to ๐Ÿ™‚

Gympie Over night Rest Stop

After we left Hervey Bay, and spent one magical day at Rainbow Beach we bundled up our boys {eating dinner along the way} to stay that night at Gympie Over Night Rest Stop.

It was dark and late when we got there, and that’s not the best way to set up Camp…Because its a bit harder to see a flat spot, and the best spot to park closer to the toilet blocks, but not too close to the road.

Well we got the closer to the toilet blocks right, and it was sorta a flat spot…but I didn’t think about what could fall out of trees above us! Nor did we realise how close we were to to the main roads with all of the truckies going by in the morning {yeah I sure have a crazy story on that one!}

Waldron Swamp Rest Area

After picking up “Earmuffs” from Spaceship rentals in Sydney I dashed back to the motorhome to pack everything up = Also had to stop at Aldi for food shopping.

Check this out……My oldest son was trying to keep our younger two boys entertained – they started to play a game {no idea what the game was} while waiting at Spaceship Campervan Rentals for our campervan to be ready. This there is what makes my day, my boys playing games together and having fun!

I was very lucky to be able to spend the previous night at my oldest son’s place in Sydney. And was so very lucky that he had the day off to take us to the campervan factory which was so close to his place.

Meroo National Park Free Camping

On Friday night we drove from Wollongong down to Lake Tabourie – stopping along the way to grab dinner from Ulladulla Pizza – If you are ever down that way and you want a yummy pizza then try “Tony’s Pizza”….very yummy even if there Margarita Pizza was a bit too pricey! But then again they had so many toppings on Kyle “Meat Lovers” Pizza that it made up for it!

We arrived so late to Meroo National Park Free Camping spot so we couldn’t find anywhere to set up at the “Termeil Camping Spot” – we ended up parking the Campervan in “Sunburnt Camping Area” which is walking in camping only….and I so was NOT setting up tents in the dark and then sleeping in the car without being near our boys.

Cameron and Kyle came up with the idea of sleeping in the front of the Campervan while David and I slept in the back…we tried to swap but they wouldn’t let us ๐Ÿ™‚

Free Camping Staying Warm In The Tent

If you know me you will know that I love Free Camping! Actually I have only just realised that I need to share our Favorite ย Free Camping Spot in Victoria {thought I had shared it already but guess I forgot} – Will share that soon in another blog post.

But if do know me you will know that I like to stay warm when camping in a Tent, if I am not warm I will ditch the tent and go sleep in the Camper Van!! Yes I bailed one night when it got down below minus degrees, leaving David alone in the tent while climbing into the warmth created between Cameron and Kyle.

But I reckon you too would have ditched that night – it was freezing, it was so cold that it was snowing not far from where we were camping. And we hadn’t learnt a few tricks about keeping warm in the tent until that experience. So I guess you could say we were meant to be there to work out how to stay warm.

Gumma Crossing Reserve

After leaving Stotts Island Environment Centre we had a massive day ahead of us….we needed to drive at least 6-7 hours so that the next day we were closer to Sydney.

David likes to know where we are going before we head off, I am happy to travel and plan when we get there! So he looked in the Camps 6 Book and jumped onto the CMCA website for any Camping Spots. It would have been good to free camp again, but this time he decided that an over night spot that only charge a small amount of money sounded ideal.
