Mungo Brush Campground Beach

So we have shared our thoughts about Myall National Park and Mungo Campsites {can’t recommend the smelly toilets but hey the view over looking the lake and the beach access makes up for it!}

Mungo Brush Campground Beach is literally across the road from the campsites. And you won’t believe the paradise you will walk out to when you are finished with waking up, having breakfast and ready to explore. Even the teenagers who don’t like to get out and explore will love the beach!

Myall Lakes National Park

After our busy weekend in Sydney {yeah I am still playing catch up with our trip down South which was years ago – Joking – before our next adventure!} – With our older son’s engagement party and Vivid Sydney we had two nights free before our next booked accommodation. So David decided to look at our Camps 7 Book and check out Myalll Lake National Park and see if we could stay there for two nights.

Vivid Sydney 2016

So I am still sharing our trip down South! After our Free Camping at Meroo National Park and our wonderful time Geocaching on Crapmton Island we headed back to Sydney, staying at Lane Cove National Park. That way we could easily catch a train to see Vivid Sydney {2016}

We have seen Vivid a few times now! And maybe one day we will see it again. We have seen it down at Darling Harbour one year – with music and light shows – gosh that was a great display that year!

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 🙁

Gin Gin Queensland

We love to explore where ever we can, when ever we can. We love geoaching, and we love seeing new towns. We have been out to Gin Gin Queensland to see the Fred Haigh Dam. But didn’t really stop to look around the town until a while ago.

Gin Gin Queensland ::

Such a cute little country town, where we hope to return one day to see the Cattle Auctions – must find out when they are on so our boys can go and see how animals are sold in the country!

Where To Stay While Traveling Australia

On our travels over the years we have stayed in many different places, and many different styles of accommodations over the years. From Free Camping destinations – found with our Camp 7 Book, to sleeping near the beach in our Campervan, to pulling up in rest stops in our Motorhome, to sleeping in tents, to traveling with our Camper van and Camper trailer, to finding a hotel because David and Kyle were not well, to even staying at beautiful hotels/motels.

Bargara Beach And Geocaching

On Wednesday’s we go into town to meet up with the Homeschooling group at the “Take The Plunge Cafe” – where we get to have fun working out how the Edison’s are supposed to move, and have a green tea with other homeschooling Mums – its my much needed down time.

We don’t do school work {most of us are unschoolers anyway} but because one of the sweet mama’s is a teacher {or should I say ex-teacher now that she has kids!} takes so many wonderful things for us and the kids to do. Last week she started teaching us Spanish with numbers which was such a cool thing to do.

Before we meet up I have about five hours to waste {we drop off David to work in the mornings} so we head to Bargara Beach for some Geocahing, and then head to the library before the cafe meet up.

Toowoomba Japanese Gardens

After we stopped and spent as much time as possible at Picnic Point Toowoomba – at the lookout, the playground and then had lunch in the park, we decided to head to Toowoomba Japanese Gardens to check out the beautiful grounds. There is a cache there but my phone wasn’t able to pick up the location no matter where I stood, we walked on many paths and it kept on jumping – sometimes if there is too many tall trees, or over cast day the GPS on the geoaching app can’t work too well!

Picnic Point Toowoomba

After we had been driving all day from Bundaberg to Childers {for a petrol stop}, on to Ban Ban Springs for lunch break, to Nanango for a coffee break we were heading to a free camping spot past Toowoomba but our Campervan had other ideas!

David had replaced the Carburetor in the Campervan before we left on our trip. It had been running rough for weeks, and we knew it had to be done. Unfortunately it was still running rough but I had done a trip to Brisbane and back the weekend before with no issues, so we headed off with confidence that our old girl would make it to Sydney and back no issues.

But we were about 30 minutes to Toowoomba when she was sucking in air, and not getting enough fuel {or getting too much at once}. We pulled into a Petrol Station in Toowoomba, thinking a good quality fuel might flush the issue through. But after filling up she crawled the car park area and stopped. RACQ was called – we are Premium members and have been for years, it has saved our butts big time so many times over the years.

Baffle Creek Raft Race

Every year they have a Baffle Creek Raft Race where you can build your own, or turn up and they supply all the stuff needed to make one on the spot and race {its called a “Dogs Breakfast Race”}. We haven’t even been up to Baffle Creek before so I was keen to see what the town was like. We decided to join the Bundaberg Homeschooling group who were staying on a friends property for a spot of of Free Camping!

Baffle Creek Raft Race ::

Cameron and Kyle did make rafts at Grandma and Grandad’s place but they didn’t end up using them. Instead everyone got together and made one that could hold 5 of the homeschooling boys.
