Day 49, 31/8/2019 Saturday Cania Gorge, overcast low 20’s To make some room while making breakfast Woody puts the chook scraps out on the caravan drop down table. When we go outside to have a coffee there’s no sign of the bag just a bunch of cheeky currawongs and some fruit peel. Sorry chooks. We study the National Parks map and note that most of the walks seem to start at our park gate. Ok, we’ll do the Gorge View near Dragon’s Cave. It appears to be a short 2.5km, 1hour walk. It’s a warm morning and we wander along … Continue reading Follow the Sun, Day 49 – Gorged Out
Aug 2019, Mulambin, Capricorn Coast, Qld We take a drive out to Byfield National Park just 41kms north of Yeppoon. The day couldn’t be more perfect. The 11km detour out to Upper Stoney campground is rough and corrugated which has … Continue reading Mulambin Mumblings – Burgers in Byfield
Mar 2015, Cape Le Grand, WA Who wants an infinity pool when you can have an infinity beach. Cape Le Grand National Park near Esperance on Western Australia’s south coast abounds with photographable scenery. The Cape Le Grand campground overlooks a beach that seems to stretch forever. Small islands dot the seascape and wild brumby footprints can sometimes be seen in the sand. Continue reading A Grand Sunset
Burleigh Heads, Qld We have family on the Gold Coast and when there one of our favourite walks is through the Burleigh Heads National Park. A short 3km return walk takes you around the headland and through patches of rainforest between Burleigh Heads and Tallebudgera. There are stunning ocean views to Surfers Paradise in the north and Coolangatta in the south. In the rainforest the antics of the brush turkeys will keep you amused and water dragons can be spotted wandering about in the shade. High above you the steep grassy hillside is strewn with giant hexagonal basalt plugs. So … Continue reading Burleigh Heads National Park

Mar 2019, Gillards Beach, Mimosa Rocks National Park, NSW After a cool night with a hottie and dreams of Freddy Mercury we wake to almost total silence. The skies are blue, the sea is flat with just a curl of … Continue reading Gillards Beach
May 2015, Cape Range, WA The sign in the Cape Range National Park says that we may see Euros. Do they mean small marsupials or young backpackers in clapped out Wicked Campers? Continue reading Euros eh?
A cool entry to the park July 2018 Based at Finch Hatton showgrounds we drive up to Finch Hatton Gorge, through sugar farms and small acreages studded with fruit trees and banana palms. What a heavenly place this would be … Continue reading Finch Hatton Gorge
Aug 2018 We drive north through picturesque farmlets to Byfield National Park. We were introduced to this lesser known park a few years ago by friends. Today we’re returning to have lunch at the Byfield General Store. But first we … Continue reading Byfield National Park
The drive through the Coorong is fascinating. For 140Kms there are salt pans on one side of us and the bird filled waters of the Coorong waterway on the other, a backdrop of dunes holds the sea at bay in the distance. Ti Tree lines the road and Norfolk pines shelter small settlements. Fishing shacks are almost hidden by scrub. I can’t believe that I once thought this drive was boring with nothing to see. Now I wish that we had a camper trailer so that we could explore the narrow limestone tracks that head towards the sea. Continue reading The Coorong
