For Free Camp Friday here’s a camp that has been built by a thoughtful town that realizes the benefits of encouraging people to stay awhile.
Ingham in Qld, known as the” Italian town” is welcoming and friendly. The information centre is at the TYTO Wetlands and there is a new 48 hour free camp beside the lake. The shopping centre is only a block away and there is an excellent fishmonger on the highway, the prawns are seriously sweet and juicy. Did I mention the Italian deli in town?
The name Tyto is strange but it is the name of an owl that inhabits the wetlands. There are 4km of walking trails through these tropical lagoons. It is currently closed but will re open in April 2016. Payment is by donation. Don’t forget to be croc aware!
