Calliope Free Camping

Recently we planned a trip to visit one of our magical favorite camping spots up north because Kyle has been bugging us for ages to go Gold Fossicking and looking for gems. He even kept asking if he could pack a back pack and go by himself!

I kept having to tell him that at the age of 12 he isn’t allowed to go on a camping adventure all by himself but he doesn’t care about the fact that he isn’t yet over 18. And being a red hair, being a full on adventure fun loving child I am going to have to make sure that he doesn’t disappear on us! Yeah I think I will have to hide the Back Packs so that he doesn’t get any ideas.

Free Camping At Matilda

When we were coming back from New South Wales to Queensland – can’t remember when exactly! – we couldn’t keep driving as we were so exhausted. When we pulled into the Matilda Petrol Station we seen there was a Free Camping section so we were relieved.

Its a Free Camping Spot at Matilda – unfortunately there is no toilet facility near the free camping spot, but there is some where the petrol station is! Just a bit of a walk.

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 🙁

Yarramalong Weir Free Camping Spot

From Ban Ban Springs we stayed over night in Toowoomba. The next day 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 🙂

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 🙂

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  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.

Camp 6 Book

For our trip on the Road in Our {New} Camper Van David used our Camp 6 Book. It has now paid for itself many times over as we were able to look up cheaper places to stay or even found Free Camping Spots.

On the Tuesday Evening ::

We stayed at Milton Showgrounds For $18.00  Number 608 Milton Showgrounds Page 141 in the Camp 6 Book.

Which gave us access to the showers and toilets.  It did not matter how many of us there was, nor did it matter how big our vehicle was – it was per site! The Way travelling Australia should be.

Stotts Island Environment Centre :: Crossing The Boarder

It was so weird, crossing the boarder and not even having time to stop and realise! When we drove out of our David’s Bosses place on the Saturday (really late on the afternoon) 19th of January our one aim was to get over the boarder, and our next aim was to find somewhere free to park our Motorhome over night.

I was happy to park along the beach front at Kingscliffe , but David (and Zachery) was concerned at how close we would have been to the two caravan parks that were in the town.
