this guide

Planning a touring holiday in this great country of ours can be incredibly exciting, and sometimes really frustrating.

t

he excitement, of course, stems from that very first decision you make – let’s go on a camping or caravanning trip! The excitement builds as you pick a general area, but then it fades a bit as you get into the sometimes frustrating nitty gritty of organising the whole thing. What route should you take? Should you prebook accommodation? What’s the weather like at this time of the year? Take a tent? Tow a van? What about a boat? The questions keep on piling up, and sometimes it’s a drama trying to find the answers to them all before you head off. This guide is designed to remove many of those frustrations and hassles by concentrating a host of valuable touring information in an easy-to-use format.

STATE BY STATE To help with your planning, we’ve laid out a lot of information state by state. Within these state guides you’ll find details on campsites, van parks and national parks throughout the state. We’ve also included some general information and a few hot spots within each state that have proved to be favourites with travellers over the years. We have included maps within the state sections to help you find your way around and to assist in planning trip times and so on.

GENERAL HINTS AND TIPS While the when and where of a touring holiday can be sorted out with maps, there are many

10

Go Caravan and Camping Guide

other factors that should be considered. To help you with this side of your trip planning we’ve included plenty of information in a number of sections. Our “Planning Your Trip” section will take you through the basics and includes all the factors you’ll need to know about before you head off. Similarly, our “Touring Tips” section covers those ‘little things’ that are easily forgotten, yet can make a journey so much easier. Within this section we’ve also included some basic ‘check lists’ so that you can cover all the bases before you set off. If you’re towing a van for the first time or are unfamiliar with long distance road travel, our safety hints in “On The Road” will prove a handy reference, and may take some of the worry out of your journey.

SPEcIfIc LocATIoNS If you are searching for information on a specific location, such as a van park, camping ground or national park, there is an extensive index of these sites in the back of this guide. In addition, each state guide has an easy reference listing of parks and features within that state.

A HANDY REfERENcE It’s a good idea to keep this guide in your vehicle. It will prove to be a handy reference no matter where you travel around Australia.

Go Caravan and Camping Guide

Take the Red Centre road trip to Kings Canyon, NT


Wide open roads, crisp alpine or sultry air, red dust trailing behind and rugged ranges, gorges and coastline ahead. Get the motor running and head out on the highway.

Once you’ve hiked, canyoned or even traversed the mountain by horse, next stop is Wynyard for a Tassie scallop pie and to see fur seals frolicking, and over to Stanley, affectionately named ‘The Nut’ for its very square-shaped headland. Tarkine’s forest adventure in dense rainforest will have you wondering if you’re up for a Survivor TV challenge. The beaches, so isolated and rugged, are beautiful to explore, with perhaps one fishing boat in the distance throwing out its cray pot.

M

ost camping and caravanning addicts have a road trip wish list. But not everyone sticks to it nor traverses further than one’s state. Well travellers, it’s time to set some goals.

Eighty Mile Beach and Broome. If you have a spare 2.5 hours more up your sleeve then head further north of Broome to the Middle Lagoon, an isolated cove on the Kimberley coast.

The great thing about picking a highway, road or stretch to discover is that you’re looking at the smaller picture rather than trying to tackle an entire state or territory in one hit, which can be a little daunting. Once you have the destination plugged into the GPS the rest is easy.

2. The Red Centre Way, NT – 1130km

So take a look at the seven road trips below, they’re a diverse mix of distances, landscapes and experiences stretching across the nation. If the choices are all so thrilling then, if you like, write their names onto seven small pieces of paper, fold up each paper and put them into a hat. Draw one every few months or however frequently you can travel and just go!

1. The Warlu Way, WA – 2480km Dreamtime serpent indeed, well, that’s the English translation of Aboriginal word ‘Warlu’, a serpent who emerged from the sea to snake through the arid land leaving trails of water as rivers. There’s no doubt this road also snakes through some of Western Australia’s most fascinating places across the Gascoyne, Pilbara and Kimberley regions. Here you’ll find sparkling sapphire waters, plunging gorges, ancient Aboriginal art, bold ranges and inland oases. The journey will take you past Exmouth and Ningaloo Marine Park, famous for whale sharks, its spectacular coral reef, its caves and swim-throughs. Also to other iconic places including Karijini National Park, where opportunities to trek gorges and swim under waterfalls are aplenty; to Millstream Chichester National Park, where more deep gorges and palmfringed rockpools can be found; Burrup Peninsula for its world’s largest collection of Indigenous rock art; and the Dampier Archipelago, where 42 pristine islands lie off the coast and the state’s most biodiverse marine environment exists. Around the towns of Cossack and Roebourne you can find some delicious seafood, then onto Port Hedland and Marble Bar, and finally

“This trek is where you’ll discover what the dreamtime really means.”

Always wanted to see Uluru (Ayers Rock), the Olgas and the red centre but never got around to it? Or perhaps it seems just a little out of reach or even too touristy? Well let’s break it down for you and perhaps you’ll finally get there. The Red Centre Way is a collection of roads and highways linking travellers to most of Central Australia’s iconic attractions including Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park (Ayers Rock and the Olgas), Kings Canyon, Palm Valley and the MacDonnell Ranges. Yes, red is the general theme of the attractions, but you’ll be surprised to see the enormous variety of reds when the sun is around. A string of awe-inspiring national parks are dotted along the Red Centre Way, featuring shapes, colours and textures like you’ve never seen before. Also with names you probably became familiar with as early as primary school. In between ogling these rich landscapes, look out for the wild camels and relish in the sunset, sunrise and night sky, and camp where you want.

3. North West coast, TAS – 750km Tasmania is so easy to explore. The island is small so distances between places are short, meaning you can take your time to breathe in the fresh air and see so much in a short space of time. Each criss-crossing highway and road is just another little stepping stone to see this slice of heaven. The Lyell Highway leads you from Hobart to Lake St Clair where you can hike, bike and fish. On to Queenstown, renowned for its art scene and the famous Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Then moving along to the harbourside town of Strahan, where Tasmania’s longest beach is located, then to iconic Cradle Mountain via Zeehan, Rosebery and Tullah.

“This stretch is raw and wild, Tasmania at its most exposed.”

4. The Oodnadatta Track, SA – 620km Follow the Ghan railway line along red dusty roads into spectacular sunsets and clear starry night skies, camp by waterholes, cross numerous creeks and rivers, past sand dunes and discover the nation’s largest salt lake, Lake Eyre, when it fills. This is the Oodnadatta Track where you’ll find dramatic scenery at its finest and one of the easier outback adventures. Surprisingly for many, under this long and red dusty road is Australia’s largest aquifer, the Great Artesian Basin. Because of this, you’ll find oases of springs, birds and wildlife along the way. It’s the springs that made the first south to north interior crossing possible for John McDouall Stuart in 1862. They also make great places to stop and unwind after some hard yakka driving. You’ll discover that the overland telegraph, which linked the nation to the world for the first time, was constructed along this track. The track starts from Marree in the south and travels north past Lake Eyre South – which, like Lake Eyre, is dry most of the time except after big monsoonal rains in Queensland that flow south via the creek and river systems. This is when the lake comes to life with incredible birdlife and even fish. The next major towns to the northwest are William Creek, Oodnadatta and Marla. In between there are plenty of great detours to Roxby Downs, Coober Pedy and Dalhousie Springs.

5. Cairns to Cape York, QLD – up to 360km, depends on the route This is four-wheel drive paradise and a feast for the eyes. Cruising out of Cairns, you’ll first encounter Mount Mulligan along the Mulligan Highway, then Maytown, both former coal and gold mining towns respectively. If you want to see the result of a major mining boom then bust then ghost town Maytown is the perfect example. Up for a four-wheel drive challenge? Then continue driving north along Old Coach Road to Laura and view the Jowlabinna Rock Art Safari Camp, where 1500 art sites dated anywhere between a few hundred and a few thousand years old exist. An alternative to travelling via the Mulligan Highway, and a more rugged adventure, is Go Caravan and Camping Guide

Kangaroo Valley on the NSW south coast

to cruise past Port Douglas, Mossman, cross the Daintree River by barge to Cape Tribulation and then on an unsealed 30-kilometre road – the Bloomfield Track – to Cooktown, then turn back along the road to Laura. Along the Bloomfield track you’ll drive past endless steep mountain passes, creek crossings, waterfalls and secluded beaches. You’ll also pass through the Aboriginal community of Wujal Wujal where alcohol prohibition signs are plastered at the town’s entrance. Here, a 30-minute return walk will take you to the spectacular Wujal Wujal Falls. When you arrive at Cooktown, stop for a cold drink at the Lions Den Hotel, an iconic pub and campground built in 1875 on the Little Annan River. You’ll also find some great fishing spots here, just be wary of the crocodiles! From this point four-wheel driving only gets tougher, particularly along the CREB track (named after the Cairns Regional Electricity Board) further north. This is hard yakka four-wheel driving. The CREB is considered one of the toughest trails on the Cape York Peninsula. Get ready to hug every ridge and valley of the rugged ranges on this adventure, just beware that when it rains the unsealed clay soil roads can become very slippery so ensure your tyres and four-wheel drive vehicle are up to it. Best to go in the dry season.

Go Caravan and Camping Guide

6. The Great Alpine Road, VIC – 300km Take the Great Alpine Road and embrace one of the highest mountains in Australia, winding through valleys, forests, high above rivers and alongside vineyards and farms. From Wangaratta to Bairnsdale, this sealed road can be taken all year round in most conditions, though be prepared for delays in the winter as the roads are cleared and ensure you have chains or appropriate tyres to handle icy roads. Occasionally in extreme weather, roads may be closed between Harrietville and Omeo. Best to camp and caravan there in months other than winter. Wildflowers or snow will carpet the landscape, depending on the time of year you venture there. The Alps – where Mount Hotham rises to an altitude of 1840 metres and crisp blue skies and cool mountain air are a given – provides the perfect backdrop for hiking, cycling, horseback riding and camp adventure. Abseiling, hang-gliding and rock-climbing are popular activities in summer and spring, while skiing and snowboarding are naturally the go in winter. The sealing of roads between Mount Hotham and Dinner Plain means the Great Alpine Road now connects Victoria’s northeast with Gippsland, another great region to camp and caravan. Starting the Great Alpine Road from wine and cheese regions of Wangaratta and Milawa, detour to former gold rush town of Beechworth, also a gourmet food and

wine region, then pedal on the metal up to Mount Buffalo for adventure and onto Bright, a quaint deciduous-tree town on the Ovens River, gorgeous in autumn when the leaves turn from green to flaming orange and red. You’ll continue ascending the mountain range to Mount Hotham via Harrietville. As you climb higher the landscape changes from alpine ash to snow gum forest and heathland. On a clear day from Danny’s Lookout you can see as far as Falls Creek and Mount Buffalo. Ascending further you’ll come to Dinner Plain, an open plain great for horse riding and hiking, then 10 kilometres uphill is Mount Hotham. Descending the mountain you’ll pass the cattle, sheep and timber industry service centre of Omeo, then into Bairnsdale in East Gippsland. Here you can find some great fishing spots and delicious seafood.

7. Sydney to Kangaroo Valley, NSW – 155km This trek may only be equivalent to a daytrip distance but there are some charming camping and caravanning stopovers on the way down, and some stunning landscapes to ogle, so definitely worthwhile adding to the list. From Sydney, head south along the Princes Highway, between Royal and Heathcote National Parks and along the Grand Pacific Drive – possibly one of the most stunning coastal roads. Here you’ll also find the


Symbio Wildlife Park and you’ll drive across the Sea Cliff Bridge. After cruising through many hip coastal towns, you’ll arrive at Wollongong, where surfing, fishing, paragliding and sailing are popular. Shellharbour is the next town you’ll come to along the F6, famous for Lake Illawarra and as a family beach holiday destination. Here you can take a hike and a swim at Macquarie Pass National Park. Kiama is a beautiful fishing village, with a famous blowhole – a black rock with a mother nature-given spout that shoots water 60 metres high. Also at Kiama is the Illawarra Fly Tree Top Walk, a 500-metre climb taking you 25 metres above the forest floor up into the tree canopies. The landscape panorama is brilliant. After some coastal and rainforest boardwalking at Werri Beach, Gerringong and Gerroa, head west to Berry, a town with a farm cottage feel and vintage charm. Here you can fossick through antique stores and art galleries before you take the high road over Berry Mountain crossing the historic Hampden Bridge – Australia’s last surviving wooden suspension bridge from the Victorian era – through rainforest and into Kangaroo Valley. At Kangaroo Valley you have Morton National Park, Lake Yurrunga, Kangaroo Valley River, 25 bush walks, three beautiful waterfalls and three panoramic lookouts. Oh, and plenty of kangaroos. It’s a camper’s paradise. //

In far north Queensland you’ll find Finch Bay at Cooktown

At Lennox Head, NSW is Lake Ainsworth, a tea-tree lake with recuperative qualities

Stay Forever Young… in the great outdoors Nicole Navarro Photo credits: Department of Environment and Heritage New South Wales; South Australian Tourism Commission/Alex Makeyey; Ballina Coast and Hinterland; Tourism Queensland/Darren Jew; Tourism Northern Territory

Why spend big dollars trying to look and feel younger when you can do it naturally at our great national parks and lakes? Discover 5 places where you can feel forever young.

S

ometimes nature knows best, particularly when finding relief for aching bones and muscles, to slow down the ageing process and to relieve irritated skin. Soaking outdoors in a thermal spring, scrubbing silicon sand all over the face and body and floating in tea-tree tannin are apparently nature’s answer. Here are five places to go for this natural therapy… and most of them are free.

1. Yarrangobilly thermal pool, NSW At Kosciuszko National Park’s northern end in the Yarrangobilly River Valley, off the Snowy Mountains Highway, the Yarrangobilly Caves can be found inside rugged bluffs and deep gorges. And above these limestone caves is a natural thermal pool naturally heated to a constant temperature of 27 degrees Celsius.

18

Go Caravan and Camping Guide

The five limestone caves have evolved over 440 million years. Here you’ll find intricate stalagmites, stalactites, delicate shawls and cave corals. You’ll also find hidden chambers and underground pools. So strap on your walking shoes, bring your togs and towel and get ready for some deep relaxation. Apparently snow can lie around the pool’s edges in winter, an almost Scandinavian experience to bathe in the warm waters at such a cool time.

2. Lake Ainsworth, NSW At Lennox Head in northern New South Wales is a freshwater lagoon tinted amber, even ochre red depending on the light. When swimming out deep, the water is actually clear except for the golden red glow outlining your body. This lake holds powerful recuperative qualities.

Bathe in the thermal pools above Yarrangobilly Caves at Mount Kosciuszko National Park, NSW

The murky amber colour, often referred to as brown, is the result of the tea-tree tannins that leach from the melaleuca trees surrounding the peaceful pool. In fact you’ll find these tea-tree tannins and oil in many antiseptic creams, moisturisers for problem skin, hair shampoo, cleaning products and even mozzie repellent. Its healing potential is highly regarded in the natural health industry. As well as bathing in the natural goodness of the lake and diving for the sandy bottom, floating on the lake in a kayak is also relaxing for the mind as well as walking around its circumference while collecting pandanus fruit, banksia seeds and Norfolk pine needles. Lake Ainsworth is positioned less than 100 metres from the Lennox Head main beach with only a strip of banksia trees and pandanus palms separating them. A well-serviced campground is just metres away from the lake’s banks.

3. Mataranka and Bitter Springs thermal pools, NT Feel like soaking in a natural palm-fringed pool under the dappled light of the paperbark forest and surrounded by arid, desert-like conditions… at a remote 110 kilometres southeast of Katherine? At Elsey National Park, the Mataranka thermal pool, with its warm, crystal waters has the natural ability to put life back into sore muscles. The water is spring fed from groundwater reserves, which shoot millions of litres of

“Its warm, crystal waters has the natural ability to put life back into sore muscles.” 20

Go Caravan and Camping Guide

warm water into the Roper River every day. The pool bubbles at a constant 34 degrees Celsius. The little red flying fox calls the area home when breeding, usually from November to May. This can often extend through drier months. The Bitter Springs thermal pools are also in the same national park, located approximately two kilometres from Mataranka. Camping grounds are within close proximity to access both thermal pools.

4. Lake McKenzie, QLD Find your skin glowing after a refreshing swim and facial scrub in the pure – or as close to pure as you’ll find – silica sand of freshwater Lake McKenzie on Fraser Island. This rain-fed 80-hectare crystal blue lake – 1200 metres long and 930 metres wide – is perched above the regional water table. The soft, white sand surrounding the lake is classed as pure white silica. It’s this same ingredient found in mineral foundations that’s claimed to encourage collagen production in the skin, which means it’s an anti-ageing booster. On top of that it’s simply a great skin exfoliate. You won’t find many fish species in this lake because the water is so pure with little nutrient and a low ph level. Go on, pitch a tent at this lake or just dive in, you’ll love it!

5. Dalhousie springs, SA On the western edge of the Simpson Desert is Witjira National Park, which covers 7770 square kilometres of pebbles, sand dunes, stony tablelands and floodplain country. Inside this desert park, accessed along the Oodnadatta Track, is the Dalhousie thermal springs.

SA’s Dalhousie springs at Witjira National Park, Simpson Desert

“The fresh water can range in temperatures between 38 and 43 degrees Celsius.”

Lush vegetation and wildlife surround more than 120 mound springs. These springs are the largest to surface in the Great Artesian Basin, which lies below. The thermal springs are home to several unique species of fish such as the Dalhousie goby and other rare aquatic life. The springs are also a haven for arid land birdlife. You may even see the wildflowers burst into bloom if you’re here just after a decent downpour of rain. Camp at the Main Spring area, where the spring can be easily accessed and where the fresh water can range in temperatures between 38 and 43 degrees Celsius. The stroll around the main spring is quite diverse in flora. From the northern end of the spring you’ll see wetland vegetation sustained by the springs, then you’ll come to what’s referred to as the Cool Pool, a circular pool with reeds surrounding it. Next you’ll see the Kingfisher springs, fringed with date palms. Beyond a forest of paperbark trees you’ll come to the head of the main thermal spring, where water is hottest at 43 degrees Celsius. Here you’ll surprisingly find fish – the Dalhousie hardyhead fish – darting in and out of the heat for the bluish-green bacteria. If you like snails – to eat or just observe – you’ll find them here in the soft warm mud at the creek bed. Once you’ve stopped for some deep muscle therapy in the thermal pools, it’s time to hit the road again. //

Divine pastures to explore on Kangaroo Island


Go on a quest to find 5 of the nation’s most scenic food-producing areas. Also where the humble camper can potentially pick up some crop-picking dollars.

lighthouses on this island even have cottages that are rented out to travellers. Campers and caravanners (yes there is a vehicle ferry) can stay in the grounds or even choose a site nearby. What’s not to like about this island?

4. Swan Hill, VIC

H

ave you ever wondered where your fruit and veggies come from? Ever been curious of the town name mentioned on the sticker stuck to your apple or where the grapes from your favourite wine are grown? What better reason to travel than to do so with purpose; to experience the farm lifestyle, go gourmet hunting, support our farmers and make a few crop-picking dollars in high season if you so wish? Major farming and food-producing regions are often so because the soil is fertile, bodies of water are usually nearby to irrigate crops, space is aplenty and the climate is just right, not too wet or dry. They also tend to come with colour, life, rolling green hills and paddocks… sounds like the perfect place to live and breathe in life from your tent or caravan for a spell.

1. Orange, NSW Colour is what you’ll certainly find in Orange, a small regional city 3.5 hours northwest of Sydney. Here you’ll see the four seasons so distinctly as the green leaves from summer change colour in autumn and drop in winter. In spring you’ll see the flowers race across fields and crops being picked. If you had to guess what fruit was cultivated in Orange you might say the orange, but you’d be wrong. What inspired the town’s name was actually the colour of the trees in autumn and is why this time of year is so popular with tourists. Apples tell the oldest story for Orange, although pears, berries, cherries, peaches, apricots, plums and grapes are all major contributors to the town’s fruit supply. Aside from sampling the various types of apples, grapes and stone fruit in their original state, you can also taste them once turned into a wine, traditional cider or liqueur. You can also hunt for truffles and view a deer and snail farm. Yes, this place is all about gourmet eating, but it doesn’t necessarily mean from a fancy restaurant. Once you have access to all the fresh produce you can cook up a feast from your gas cooker or over an open fire. With plenty of great camping and caravan park options including the Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area with falls and bushwalking track, plus perhaps the option to hunt around the farms for a place to camp, why not stop in a while? The busiest harvesting seasons usually run from late October to late January.

2. Devonport, TAS With its stereotypically lush rolling hills and greatest rainfall across the nation, Tasmania

is surely a place to consider when searching for a scenic farming region. Devonport could easily be the answer, well at least a great place to start as you disembark the ferry with your caravan or vehicle packed with camping gear. It’s a handy base for venturing into the Cradle Mountain wilderness and also a place where you can see penguins in their natural environment. At the mouth of the Mersey River, not far from Tasmania’s high country, Devonport and its surrounding region features farms producing various vegetables, apples, stone fruit, cherries and berries. Vegetables are harvested all year around however the busiest harvesting times for apples are from March to May, for stone fruit and cherries it’s in December and January, and for berries the season runs from December to April. Here you’ll find that many farms will accommodate for caravans and tents, particularly for those choosing to pick up some paid picking work.

3. Kangaroo Island, SA With its strong farming community, Kangaroo Island offers so many experiences for the humble gourmet traveller. The island even has what they call a ‘gate and cellar door trail’ that follows the Dudley Peninsula, the central and south coast and Kingscote and surrounds. It’s an island with 200 hectares of vines and 18 wine labels. Its dairy industry is also quite prominent, producing Mediterranean-style sheep milk cheeses and yoghurts. You can also find organic lemons and lamb, honey production and incredibly fresh seafood such as seasonal oysters, abalone and crayfish. Here on a tight budget you can eat like a king and camp in a swag under the stars, particularly if you visit the island’s farmers’ market. You can also find tammar wallabies, short-beaked echidnas, koalas, and, as the island’s name suggests, plenty of kangaroos. Pushing aside the great produce and farms, Kangaroo Island is also renowned for Flinders Chase National Park, where you’ll find windsculpted rock formations and New Zealand fur seals splashing about. Over at West Bay is a stunning beach where you can walk to the mouth of the Rocky River, also impressive. Plenty of walking tracks in this park. Who doesn’t love a lighthouse and the stories often behind them? Well the two

At this historic Murray River town and former port, you’ll find a semi-arid climate with a rich farming region of vegetables, citrus fruit, grapes and stone fruit. Wool is produced in the region, as well as grain and delicious almonds. And let’s not forget the wine. In the mid-Murray area of Victoria, on the eastern edge of the Mallee country in Victoria’s northwest, Swan Hill’s tourism is borne from the river, with a major highlight being the Paddle Steamer Gem and the Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement. Citrus fruit is harvested nine months of the year – from May to January; stone fruit is harvested six months of the year in January, February, May, June, July and December; and vegetables are harvested 10 months of the year, with the exclusion of March and April. Winters are very cold here and summers are extremely hot – typical Mediterranean climate.

5. Stanthorpe, QLD Apples, grapes, berries and stone fruit such as peaches, apricots and nectarines are what make Stanthorpe so popular and thriving. It’s also renowned for being Queensland’s number one wine region with 45 wineries, vineyards and cellar doors. Close to the border of New South Wales, inland Stanthorpe reaches up to 1000 metres above sea level, meaning you should expect freezing mornings in winter and even a chance of snow. While the Biennial Apple and Grape Harvest Festival is a great time to celebrate all the delicious goodness of Stanthorpe, tying in with its harvest months in February/March, its national parks, such as Girraween National Park, is also a reason for travellers to visit the area. This park is famous for its large granite boulders, its wildflowers in spring, and its remarkable, beautiful vistas from a variety of tracks. Other popular national parks nearby include Bald Rock National Park, which features the southern hemisphere’s largest granite rock formation, then there’s Sundown and Boonoo Boonoo National Parks. This place is loaded with good camping and caravanning spots. Perhaps if you ring around you may even find a site on a farm. Sound like a tasty and scenic experience? Go and discover where the grass really is greener. //

Rough surf fishing on Locks Well Beach near Elliston on the Eyre Peninsula, SA


Go with the flow to where the water is pristine and the fish are jumping. Let your lure guide you on your next adventure.

I

t’s not easy to find wild-caught fish these days, particularly in an era when we’re seeing a rising abundance of pellet-fed fish in farmed environments. So why not go on your own quest to find some of the wildest and freshest, across all corners of this continent?

Fishing is an age-old way of finding food, and while many techniques and tools may have significantly advanced since the day of our ancestors or original owners of this vast land, the concept hasn’t changed. Catching your own not only means you save some dinner dollars while on your adventure but it’s also a way to exercise your muscles, breathe in the fresh air, balance the mind and of course stay healthy and chemical free.

“Going on a mission to hook could lead you on your next exciting adventure to some remote or secluded places.”

Regardless of your angling experience, going on a mission to hook could lead you on your next exciting adventure to some remote or secluded places you may never have thought of previously. It gives you a purpose to travel. Just remember, different fish species can require different rod types and angling method. Do the research on the fish you’re chasing then take off. Let’s see what you catch. Oh, and don’t forget the lemon, salt and garlic!

1. Arthurs Lake, TAS Ever been trout fly-fishing? Well here’s your excuse. Located one hour from Launceston and 1.5 hours equally from Devonport and Hobart, Arthurs Lake is made up of over 3000 lakes and numerous rivers, streams and creeks. It’s Australia’s premium trout fly-fishing capital. Of course bait and lure are also acceptable fishing methods here. Rainbow trout and brook trout can be found at Arthurs Lake, but wild brown trout fishing is what lures anglers from far and wide.

Traditionally October is when the state’s lowland streams see trout jumping. The abundant supply usually lasts until December. A fishing licence is required to fish in these waters, however no boat is required, you can simply fly-fish from the lake’s beautiful banks. Expect to catch trout around the one-kilo weight however trout up to five kilos can be hooked. Two formal campsites exist at Jonah Bay and Pumphouse Bay, also where the boat ramps are.

2. Locks Well Beach, SA For rough surf and big Australian salmon weighing up to nine kilos and measuring as long as four feet, head to the Locks Well Beach on South Australia’s west coast. Locks Well Beach is near Elliston on the Eyre Peninsula. It’s no coincidence that the Eyre Peninsula is also the commercial fishing hub of the state because it’s where some mighty big fish can be caught. When angling for salmon off Locks Well Beach be prepared for a little fight, some running and even some fish acrobatics. They’ll make you work for the catch. But could you think of a nicer place to get a workout?

the large lurking crocodiles in the area you’ll need to take a boat. Croc-proof river barriers exist to prevent the crocs from entering the camping grounds.

5. Clarence River, NSW Between coastal towns Yamba and Iluka, in the northeast corner of New South Wales, the Clarence River flows boldly out to the Pacific Ocean. It passes Grafton, Ulmarra, Cowper, Maclean and Harwood along the way. Starting from the headwaters in Queensland’s McPherson Ranges, the Clarence flows approximately 400 kilometres. With a catchment of 22,660 square kilometres the river is free flowing with no on-stream dams or weirs to inhibit it. Fishing can be done from estuaries, the headland and the beaches beside this river. From the river, bream, blackfish, flathead, perch and whiting are the most common catch. From the beaches near the river mouth and the headland, whiting, bream, jewfish, tailor, groper and snapper are the likely catch. Late December, spotted Spanish mackerel can even be hooked from the headland. Fishing from the pier at East Gippsland, VIC

One thing you should first understand about the Australian salmon is it’s actually not related to the true salmon, rather, it’s a perch with a distinctive flavour and dark flesh unless bled immediately after the catch. Autumn and winter are the seasons to go. This is fishing at its most active, well, unless you go chasing barramundi over one-metre long, that’s probably on par.

3. Fitzroy River, WA The mighty 750-kilometre Fitzroy River in the Kimberley region reportedly has more fish species than the rivers of the Pilbara and southwest corner combined. The river’s catchment area is 90,000 square kilometres and when it floods it becomes one of the world’s largest rivers. In the dry season, most of the river stops flowing with permanent waterholes along the river and floodplains.

4. Mary River, NT One of Australia’s most legendary fishing systems, Mary River, found 110 kilometres from Darwin (halfway between Darwin and Kakadu National Park) is where some of the biggest and world’s best barra fishing happens. Several tidal and billabong barramundi fishing options are open for recreational fishermen, including a stunning 45-kilometre freshwater habitat famously known as the Corroboree Billabong. Mary River itself is approximately 300 kilometres long with a catchment of more than 8000 square kilometres. There’s also Shady Camp, which provides boat access to vast mangrove-lined sections of Sampan Creek and Tommycut Creek.

The fastest to catch your bait, ahead of 38 other species, will usually be barramundi.

Not only will you see plenty of barra biting, but also loads of wildlife including waterfowl, wallabies, water buffalo, dingoes, lizards, snakes, saltwater crocodiles and plenty of fish species.

While some hard core fishermen will trek up to the salt water section of the Fitzroy – a couple of hours from Broome and Derby – then wade out into the muddy and croc-infested waters to angle some giant barramundi, others prefer to find some safer banks to camp and fish.

Go between February and May – or at the end of the territory’s wet season when the floodwaters subside. This is when monster runoff barramundi can be caught as enormous as over the one-metre mark. Just be aware that because of the mangrove foreshore along the river and

“This is when monster runoff barramundi can be caught as enormous as over the one-metre mark.” 26

6. St George, QLD Unofficially the inland fishing capital of Queensland, St George is perched on the relaxed banks of the beautiful Balonne River where the most common catch is the Murray cod, yellowbelly, golden perch and silver perch. But that’s not all. The Beardmore Dam and Jack Taylor Weir are also great spots to throw in a line. The town is so confident of its fishing popularity that it runs a family fishing competition each September.

7. East Gippsland, VIC From expansive lakes and beaches, estuaries and rivers, East Gippsland offers plenty of fishing opportunities and a beautiful natural environment for setting up camp for a while. The region reaches from the most southern town of Sale up to the most northern town of Mallacoota, near the NSW border. The other towns along the East Gippsland coast include the major city of Bairnsdale, Lakes Entrance, Orbost and Paynesville. You’ll find all sorts of fishing here in East Gippsland, from perch fishing in the estuaries, freshwater fishing for trout, bass and perch, to free diving, surf fishing or offshore light game fishing. The secret to East Gippsland’s fishing success is its consistent rainfall in the mountains and ranges to the west. Shhh don’t tell too many others! //

Murramarang may be a tonguetwister, but it’s a word worth mastering – because it’s a destination worth visiting.

Plenty of kangaroos to spot at Murramarang

S

panning 44 kilometres of largely undisturbed coastal land on the New South Wales south coast, the Murramarang National Park area is absolutely stunning. Its dramatic cliffs, headlands and pristine beaches are only just the teaser to this delectable journey. Many visit the area to experience the beaches and coastline; the stroll along the beach early morning or late afternoon is one of the most refreshing and inspirational experiences. To be sure you get the full Murramarang experience, try a forest walk as well, especially when the weather restricts beach time. In fact forest walks are more interesting when the weather is poor because there’s more colour and fragrance. It’s when you see the forest really come to life. Walks range from 45 minutes to hours long and you can see bush wildlife, marine creatures, stunning landscapes and historically significant sites. The area is steeped in history and culture, which makes for a truly interesting and insightful day out. You can discover the many archaeological sites showing thousands of years of activity by the area’s Aboriginal people, including shell middens and tool manufacturing sites. Durras Mountain and nearby Pigeon House Mountain are parts of the landscape that were, and still are, important for the spiritual connection between the Aboriginal people and their land. Headlands in this area were a focus for economic life, giving easy access to the food resources of both the sea and land.

The national park is also famous for its abundance of native flora and fauna. Eastern grey kangaroos live happily among humans and frequently visit the local campgrounds and beaches. However while the kangaroos may seem tame, it’s important not to approach or feed them, as they are wild animals. Other animals to see are lyrebirds, blue tongue lizards, bush rats, wonga pigeons, small marsupials, spottedtail quoll, yellow-bellied gliders, owls, peregrine falcons and sea eagles. The offshore islands are important seabird habitat, with a large little penguin colony, gannets, shearwaters, white-faced storm petrels and sooty oystercatchers. For those who enjoy the water, there is a vast range of beach breaks, point breaks and reefs. The real strength of surfing in this area is the diversity of breaks – no matter what wind or swell, you can usually catch good waves without driving or walking far. In winter the water temperature gets a little cold and you will need a full-length wetsuit when plunging in. A spring suit will be fine for autumn and spring and in summer the temperature is warm enough for board shorts or swimmers. A number of caravan and campgrounds are located around the national park, ranging from basic unpowered campgrounds to those with cafés, pools and kids’ activities. A visit to Murramarang should be on everyone’s bucket list. It’s definitely one of the most striking and interesting beach regions to immerse yourself.

Getting there: Murramarang National Park is close to Batemans Bay (2km), Kioloa (2km), Canberra (150km), Sydney (250km). When to go: The park is open year-round but may close at times due to poor weather or fire danger. Must know: Remember this is a national park and is to be treated with care. Vehicle entry fees are $7 per vehicle per day. This fee is in addition to camping fees. The park has coinoperated ‘pay and display’ machines – please bring correct coins. Where to stay: Murramarang Beachfront Nature Resort is located right on the beach at South Durras. It has campsites, caravan sites, cabins, restaurant, pool and other facilities.

any say Tasmania’s highlights can be comfortably covered in two to three weeks however for those on a tighter schedule, the trek from Hobart to Freycinet National Park via Orford and Richmond is a tasty bitesize worth devouring. Bidding farewell to Hobart’s Salamanca Markets and snaking north along the east coast, it doesn’t take long to reach hiking paradise. From short walks to multi-day hikes there are hundreds of scenic trails to tackle. But the ultimate quest is to find one of the world’s most famous bays. Among the many great walks in Tasmania the Freycinet Peninsula Circuit in Freycinet National Park is one of the most scenic that should be added to every traveller’s bucket list.

one of the world’s most stunning bays only adds to the appeal. But first, let’s start with a spot of fishing at Orford, a good half-way stop on the journey to Freycinet. Orford is found approximately one hour into the journey from Hobart. It’s a quaint coastal fishing town with a population of no more than 500. The river that runs through it is the Prosser River, so keen anglers be prepared to hook some salmon, mackerel and sea-run trout. Some beautiful swimming beaches are also near town. After a tasty selection of marine catch in Orford, it’s time to continue on to Freycinet, which, prior to European settlement, was home to the Oyster Bay Tribe of Tasmanian Aborigines dating back at least 20,000 years. Remnants of their existence can be spotted along the coastline walk.

The track up Mt Graham becomes a bit of a waterfall as the rain and mist make any chance of a view impossible

Since the European settlement, the Freycinet Peninsula has seen coal and tin miners, farmers and whaling parties and abandoned huts. Remains of whalers’ camps form part of the rich cultural heritage of the park. For day hikers, one of the most popular walking tracks in the Freycinet National Park is to the Wineglass Bay lookout. It can be a one-hour to 2.5-hour return trip. Other much shorter walks include Cape Tourville, Sleepy Bay and Great Oyster Bay to name a few. These shorter walks can be linked together to form part of the Freycinet Peninsula Circuit. For short-distance walkers, sites for tents and caravans can be found at the entrance of the park. Here you can lap up the beauty and tranquility of the coastal wilderness at your own pace. The 30-kilometre Freycinet Peninsula Circuit can be done in three days. Fancy camping near white sandy beaches, marvelling at giant granite peaks of The Hazards and Mt Freycinet/Mt Graham, and listening out for the sounds of the abundant wildlife? Then this hike is for you.

Early morning at the Hazards Beach campground

The circuit begins along the Hazards Beach Track, which, despite its name, starts out as a fairly undulating rocky path that leads to the Lemana Lookout. From the Lemana Lookout, a small rocky headland, spectacular views south taking in Mt Freycinet, Mt Graham and Schouten Island are worth a photo or two. The next leg of the hike is along Hazards Beach named not because it screams ‘danger’ but instead because of the magnificent Hazard mountain ranges it lies beneath. The three-kilometre long southwest-facing beach is sheltered within Great Oyster Bay. The stunning backdrop of Mt Freycinet and Mt Graham, the crystal turquoise water, and the warm sun shining through the fluffy white clouds all create the perfect scene for a very pleasant afternoon coastal stroll. After crossing Lagunta Creek, take the Peninsula Track to Cooks Beach. At the end of this beach lies Cooks Corner, where historic Cooks Hut – a grazier-built piece of history dating back to 1885 – can be found and beside it, so can your camp for the night. From the north end of Cooks Beach the track heads right, up the southern flank of Mt Freycinet along the Peninsula Track. The first part of the walk is through coastal woodlands and is quite gentle. Listen out for the abundant birdlife and mammal activity. The track then becomes steeper through

the mountain forests as it continues all the way up to the Mt Freycinet/Mt Graham saddle (400 metres). From the saddle, another side trip to the Mt Freycinet summit (620 metres) is well worth the effort. Being the highest point on the peninsula, Mt Freycinet offers superb views over the coastal region. Back to the Peninsula Track the path continues along a heathland plateau onto Mt Graham (579 metres) and passes about 100 metres from its peak. Another side trip is required to reach the top here and again, it’s well worth the effort with stunning views back towards The Hazards and Wineglass Bay. From here the trail heads down. Be vigilant as the track follows along steep rocky sections and overhanging ledges. The walk continues to showcase the amazingly diverse Australian bush forests of predominantly dry plant communities. The Peninsula Track leads straight into the postcard-perfect beach of Wineglass Bay and its campground. Camp the night or continue north along the white, coarse sand of Wineglass Bay. Take a dip at the southern end of the beach because it’s more protected from bluebottles and it’s shallower. The Wineglass Bay beach walk back towards The Hazards will take approximately 30 to 40 minutes depending on fitness and conditions, and then the

Tasmania

From the base of the Wineglass Bay Track there is the option to trek west along the sandy Isthmus Track back to Hazards Beach. Another night could be camped at the southern end of Hazards Beach at a brilliantly positioned campsite that offers superb sunset views, provided the sun is around of course.

Hobart

The walk back up the Wineglass Bay Track is quite steep with steps cut into rocks and tree roots. The view from the top, at the Wineglass Bay lookout, is certainly world class. With the hinterland of heath and forest cupping the sandy shores and turquoise water it’s easy to understand how this bay was given its name and why it’s often considered one of the most stunning bays on the planet. The hike back through The Hazards saddle to the car park is a gentle downhill walk along a well-maintained path. The track passes by impressive pink granite rock faces and bush scrub and before long the end of the circuit is reached, the log book is signed out and the journey comes to an end. After completing such an active multi-day hike it’s time to give those tastebuds a workout. Just north of Freycinet National Park dotted along the Tasman Highway are a few cellar doors definitely worth a visit. Taste an assortment of cool-climate wines and chat to the growers while gazing across the green rolling hills. Tasmania is well known for its award-winning sparkling wines as well as its pinot noir, riesling and chardonnay. On the return to Hobart the small historic town of Richmond is a step back in time. With its beautiful Georgian-style buildings and the oldest stone bridge in use in the nation, it was once an important convict station and military post. Many of Richmond’s buildings pre-date Port Arthur. There are even a few boutique wineries to call in on and make the stay a little more delectable. If you still have time for one last day hike give Hartz Peak a go. Hartz Mountains National Park is located about 85 kilometres southwest of Hobart and the

walk, on a clear day, is fabulous. The hike can take anywhere from three to five hours return and the 360 degree views from the summit are breathtaking. Just be aware that extreme weather conditions can blow in at any time of the year. After seeing some of the word’s best lookouts, scenic vineyards and experiencing some top-notch fishing, this small taste of the Apple Isle only leaves you wanting more. Getting there: Freycinet National Park is located approximately 190 kilometres from Hobart and 170 kilometres from Launceston and is a comfortable 2.5 to three-hour drive from either direction. Trip highlights: The Freycinet Peninsula Circuit, fishing at Orford, Hartz Peak and Salamanca Place in Hobart.

When to go: Between December and April the months have longer daylight hours and warmer average temperatures. However, the mild climate of the east coast does make Freycinet an attractive climate in winter also. Be aware though that Tasmanian weather can be incredibly varied so always check with the Bureau of Meteorology before starting your hike. Must know: Entry fee payments are required for all national parks in Tasmania. Look under the National Parks Passes webpage on the Parks and Wildlife Service, Tasmania website for more information – www.parks.tas.gov.au To complete the 30-kilometre Freycinet Peninsula Circuit a level four grade in bushwalking experience is recommended. Tracks may be long, rough and very steep and directional signage may be limited. Bring a gas/fuel stove as no open fires are allowed. //

The surreal existence of Nimbin

Leaving Bangalow for Byron Bay


The lush green hills, mountains and rivers of northern New South Wales are a place to feed the mind, body and soul. Ethereal for many, it’s no wonder so many travellers arrive, lose themselves down some little countryside road or valley and never leave, or at least extend their journey. Let’s find out why.

D

riving southbound, this hinterland northern NSW journey starts at the turnoff from the Pacific Motorway onto Tweed Valley Way. In no time the sparkling Tweed River appears on the right and the canefields spring up on the left. A sign for Tropical Fruit World whizzes past and the historical Condong Sugar Mill, dating back to 1878, looms ahead on the right. You’re in farmers’ paradise. Murwillumbah is the first major town that unravels out on the road ahead. It embraces eager visitors impressively with a bridge crossing the Tweed River, offering a jaw-dropping view of Mount Warning. Mount Warning was the name Captain Cook gave the mountain because with its very pointed summit, it acted as a distinguishable beacon to warn sailors of the dangerous reefs ahead, east of Fingal Head. Its existing Aboriginal name is Wollumbin. The mountain also appears to be a magnetic lure for all types of artists. Interestingly, the same mountain was once the central vent of a large shield volcano; the Tweed Valley was its erosion caldera. Murwillumbah is Mount Warning’s hiking headquarters with three major pubs, a couple of old churches and a bustling main street with many pre-1940s buildings – the banks, the drinking holes, the cinema, the Tweed Arcade and the classic and must-visit Austral Café. Because of Mount Warning’s close proximity to Cape Byron at Byron Bay, the most easterly point in Australia, the mountain’s 4.4-kilometre, five-hour round trip trek is often climbed at the wee hours of the morning before dawn, on a mission to see the first break of day on this continent. Camping grounds are positioned at the mountain’s base, allowing you to be close enough to feel the majestic mountain breathing and to get an early start. Farmstays nearby are also a great option for campers and caravanners. With many waterholes, creeks and of course the Tweed River, the Murwillumbah region offers many kayaking opportunities, so whether you bring your own paddles or rent them, it’s a great way to get around, particularly as the Tweed River runs through many quaint

towns including Stokers Siding and Uki. Kayaking the Tweed is also an inexpensive way to catch your dinner. Thirty minutes southbound of Uki and Nimbin stumbles into you, with its extreme hippy lifestyle and counter culture street vendors selling food, clothes and products made with hemp and hash; the most surprising was rustic-looking sourdough bread loaves. Nimbin and its folk are more surreal than you can imagine. While the town of Nimbin is particularly unique, so is its surrounding landscape. In one word: stunning. This is the moment you really feel lost in the ethereal beauty of the region. It’s where you see rambling old vine-covered cottages and farmhouses, where multiple-occupancies on the land are the norm, and where organic farms – and even one step further, permaculture farms – are just a natural part of the landscape. Driving towards the town of The Channon, 20 minutes from Nimbin, a permaculture farm quickly punctuates the journey. Here is another example of a unique place to stay for campers and caravanners in an uncrowded and informal setting. Those chasing an opportunity to worship the sun and soil can see how permaculture can be successfully done. It’s also where you can drink the fresh spring water, eat farm fresh eggs, get to know the locals and learn about their hippy existence. The town of The Channon is where a monthly craft market draws thousands. Not far from the markets, across from the corner store and post office you’ll see the signed road leading to the Nightcap National Park. Just a 15-kilometre trek down Terania Creek Road is the hike to Protester Falls, where the historic protests against logging occurred in the 1970s. The hike is an easy 1.4-kilometre return track winding through rainforest and Bangalow palm glades, alongside a stream. At the end of the track is a waterfall and water pools. Here you may be lucky to spot the endangered Fleay’s

Barred Frog. Longer treks through this national park can be accessed from the next leg of this hinterland circuit from Dunoon to Bangalow. You’ll see them signed roadside. A particularly popular trek is the 7.5-kilometre Minyon Loop and the 16-kilometre Historic Nightcap Track. Dunoon professes to be the macadamia nut tree capital. Indeed the road follows farm after farm of macadamia nut trees, right through to Bangalow, a boutique country town with some stores housing impressive wine, coffee, food, homeware and fashion. If you can tolerate crowds then the famous monthly Bangalow market could be your cup of tea. You’ll see stalls with homemade and homegrown goods including macadamia nuts, ginger products, olive oil, coffee fresh from the farm, and jams and chutneys made from a variety of local fruits. From this point it’s down the range and into popular Byron Bay or you can stay lost in the hinterland and continue heading south. Got a feeling the serene and dream-like feeling of being lost in the hinterland will take some time to forget. Getting there: Murwillumbah, the start of this journey, can be accessed from the Pacific Motorway; its turnoff is close to the Queensland border. Trip highlights: Murwillumbah, Mount Warning, kayaking and fishing on the Tweed River, Uki, Stokers Siding, Nimbin, The Channon, Nightcap National Park, the macadamia nut tree-landscape at Dunoon and Bangalow markets. When to go: Between March and September each year the macadamia nuts fall to the ground and are harvested at regular intervals. The second Sunday of each month is when you can catch The Channon craft markets and the last Sunday of each month is when you’ll see Bangalow’s monthly markets. Must know: Check www.nationalparks.nsw. gov.au for track updates in any of the national parks. Even if a working farmstay doesn’t advertise camp and caravan sites don’t be afraid to ask about the possibility. //

Pacific Coast Cruisin’… Nicole Navarro / Images courtesy of BIG4 Holiday Parks of Australia With famous surf breaks, pristine beaches, walking tracks and some wide rivers and lakes to fish, the New South Wales coast north of Sydney is an ideal place to go barefoot.

P

ack the caravan, camper trailer or tent, bring the canoe, surfboard, fishing tackle and be prepared for an endless summer road trip – any time of the year – paddling off from Tweed Heads. Here’s your itinerary: Tweed Heads is located just across the Queensland border in NSW. It’s a popular family destination because it has something for everyone – the glitz and attractions of the Gold Coast in contrast with the laidback natural beauty of northern NSW. Famous for its glorious Tweed River, where you can throw in a line and snare some whiting, trevally, bream and many other delicious barbeque options, Tweed Heads is also in paddling distance to some internationally-acclaimed surf breaks and competitions at Rainbow Bay, Duranbah and Kirra beaches. Next stop Yamba, 200 kilometres south along the Pacific Highway. Yamba is perched on the 394-kilometre long Clarence River, which stretches from the mouth at Yamba to the eastern slopes of the Great Dividing Range. Local hotspots include Pippi Beach, famous for its annual surf competition and Turner’s Beach, a popular swimming and surf beach positioned between the renowned fishing spot ‘South Break Wall’ and a lighthouse. Yamba is a slow-paced beach village where the attractions are its natural assets… and of course the local fish’n’chips. Continue heading south another 200 kilometres and you’ll come to Nambucca Heads, surrounded by bush and long stretches of white sandy beaches. The view of the Nambucca River embracing the sea is a spectacular welcome. Here you’ll find plenty

of ocean lookouts, foreshore boardwalks, fishing spots and even some outdoor painting fun for the kids on the famous V-Wall.

photographing the fields of wildflowers. The beach here is one of the most popular central coast swimming spots for families.

A further 60 kilometres south you’ll hit South West Rocks, a sleepy treasure set on the Macleay River. Here you’ll see the historic Trial Bay Gaol perched on cliffs high above the sea. Cave diving is also renowned here and naturally there is no shortage of beautiful beaches. Hat Head National Park is a popular hiking destination, from a vantage point here you might spot some whales during migration time. The Korogoro Peninsula Walk is another favourite stroll and will take you through coastal rainforest to view a sea cave and natural arch.

So, are you barefoot yet with paddle in hand?

Travelling another 200 kilometres south is Pacific Palms, in the NSW mid north coast region. Here you’ll find a coastal village on Smith’s Lake and fringed by some premier surf beaches, including Bull’s Paddock, on the southern end of Seven Mile Beach. Booti Booti National Park is set on an eight-kilometre long peninsula between Wallis Lake and the ocean. Here you’ll also find some spectacular vistas over the sea from Cape Hawke and some secluded beach swimming. Next is Port Stephens, 140 kilometres south.

Where to stay: BIG4 Holiday Parks has 180 stunning locations across Australia with selfcontained cabins, powered and ensuite sites. Here is a selection along the Pacific coast cruise:

Port Stephens is famous for its worldclass port, along with its bountiful surf and swimming beaches. It’s also a popular destination for whale watching – you can do this from a headland in Tomaree National Park. Other attractions include its resident bottlenose dolphin population and sand boarding at Stockton sand dunes. For wine connoisseurs and gourmet food lovers there are local wineries nearby and plenty of great restaurants and cafés in town. Driving south another 150 kilometres is Umina Beach, a central coast town that borders Brisbane Waters National Park, a 12,000-hectare outdoor gallery featuring Aboriginal engravings in the rugged sandstone. Here you can bushwalk and enjoy

gemfields, also as the service centre for the region’s gas, coal, cotton, grapes, citrus and grain industries.

Let’s giddy up at Rockhampton, where you can take your pick of prime cut beef to throw on your trusty gas cooker, also where your discovery of one of the last remaining dinosaurs, the estuarine crocodile, just begins.

Carnarvon Gorge is where you’ll find a 62-metre-long sandstone wall of ancient Aboriginal art, a natural ampitheatre, moss gardens, canyons and plenty of hiking opportunities with incredible views across the national park.

lancing at the road map, this journey slices off the northeast top end of the Australian continent, crossing two states and one territory. It brings you to regions of precious gems, Aboriginal rock art, magnificent gorges, lakes and in breathing distance of the nation’s largest Jurassic-like national park, Kakadu. It offers adventure, a step into prehistoric times and outdoor gallery tours.

Rockhampton to Emerald Surrounded by Berserker Range, Rockhampton (affectionately known as ‘Rocky’) may be famous for its beef industry and rodeos, but it’s also an easy access point to Great Keppel Island for some magical snorkelling and a good base to discover surrounding national parks and trails. Mount Etna Caves is one of Rocky’s national park gems, famous for the teenytiny bent-wing bats – quite different from your standard fruit bat – and its limestone caves. Go at dusk for a ranger-guided tour of the caves to see the flurry of thousands of tiny bats. Then there’s Mount Archer, the Berserker Range’s highest peak at 604 metres above sea level. Vistas over Rockhampton and to the Fitzroy River in the west are visible from here. Your choice of four hikes can be experienced, ranging from an easy 500-metre circuit to a 14-kilometre one-way descent. Rockhampton’s botanic gardens, which feature a zoo, are worth a day exploring, before heading off on a 280-kilometre stretch to the next major regional city of Emerald via Blackwater along the Capricorn Highway.

Emerald to Mount Isa Despite its name, Emerald, at the junction of the Capricorn and Gregory Highways is actually renowned for its sapphire

Emerald is also central to several national parks, including the popular Carnarvon National Park, where the Carnarvon Gorge is found. It may be a six-hour return detour from Emerald but certainly worth the trip.

Even closer to Emerald though – just a few kilometres away – is Lake Maraboon. Here you’ll find Queensland’s second largest lake, three times larger than Sydney Harbour. You can kayak, take the boat out and catch some incredibly tasty red claw crayfish. It’s an exciting challenge to pull up a catch for dinner. How many camping and caravan spots can you throw a red claw crayfish on the barbie? Not many. Just follow the guidelines of four pots per person. Other fish commonly caught here are the barramundi, silver perch, bass, Mary River cod and southern saratoga. It’s here at Lake Maraboon where you really start to relax into your journey; a great tranquil stopover before the next 1000-kilometre road trip to Mount Isa.

view the original hangar at the existing airport and plenty of memorabilia at the airline’s museum. Also at Longreach is the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame, a tribute to the stockmen in the area. Opportunities to visit working cattle stations are popular in this region – it’s a rugged and adventurous lifestyle here where you certainly work physically hard for your feed. Arriving at Mount Isa, sprawled out on either side of the spectacular Leichhardt River and set among the ochre-red Selwyn Ranges, which happen to be very striking at sunset, you’ll find a town with a rich mining history. It’s a place to take slowly in your stride – its country charm, quaint pubs, bakeries and family-owned boutiques. This is the Queensland outback at its most raw. For rocky outcrops, waterholes and wildflowers head to the stunning Lawn Hill Gorge in Boodjamulla National Park and the world heritage-listed Riversleigh Fossil Fields. They are mighty attractions for the area, so are the many tours you could take including the Royal Flying Doctor base, the Underground Hospital and Beth Anderson Museum and Mount Isa Mines. Lake Moondarra, the Leichhardt River dam, is 16 kilometres north of Mount Isa and offers a welcome relief of hydration after travelling for hours through the arid landscape of the outback.

“This is the Queensland outback at its most raw.” a glimpse of the thousands of kilometres of tunnels below. On the road again, heading west along the Barkly Highway, you’ve hit the Overlander’s Way, named so because it follows the original route of early stockmen who drove their cattle from Queensland, through the grazing lands to the Northern Territory. You’ll pass through some small towns, including a place called ‘Gunpowder’. Camooweal, 190 kilometres from Mount Isa, is the last town you arrive at before crossing the border into the Northern Territory. Here you’ll find the Camooweal Caves National Park. This park is a great stop for lunch or to spend some time hiking and exploring the Mitchell grass plains and spinifex woodland and seeing waterbirds frolic at the Nowranie Waterhole. While it’s interesting to see where the caves open up to the surface, they’re not actually accessible because vertical shafts up to 75 metres deep link them together. To access them would require some serious abseiling gear, though it’s not recommended. These caves and sinkholes were formed from water penetrating soluble dolomite layers over 500 million years. Ready to cross the border? Here you cruise to the end of the Barkly Highway passing enormous cattle properties for another 400 kilometres before hitting the junction with Stuart Highway – the road that takes you to Darwin. Sitting at the junction and looking north up the Stuart Highway to Darwin it’s an 800-kilometre stretch. The first third of the journey is arid until you hit Mataranka and its majestic springs in the Elsey National Park. It’s like an oasis after a long and dry run. Another 110 kilometres north is Katherine, where the very popular Katherine Gorge is located inside the Nitmiluk National Park. This park envelops a number of gorges, which

42

Go Caravan and Camping Guide

sit on the Katherine River and Edith Falls. Its northern edge borders Kakadu. Paddling canoes and motoring flat-bottomed boats are how you can explore the gorges and spot many bird species including ospreys, red-tailed black cockatoos, red-winged parrots, white-gaped honeyeaters and great bowerbirds. Fortunately only the freshwater crocodiles are spotted here so swimming is relatively safe. Just another 315 kilometres and you’ve reached Darwin, where the green tropical palms are a welcome sight after days on the dusty road.

Darwin to Kununurra With so much to do and see in and around Darwin, including Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks, the mighty Mary River and of course the CBD and some lovely harbours, it’s highly suggested to find a central camping and caravan site to base yourself from so you can be central to everything. The Darwin region is a great battery recharge before heading off on your West Australian leg starting from Kununurra. Cruising back down the Stuart Highway with Darwin in the rearview mirror, the road to Kununurra – Victoria Highway – turns off at Katherine, southwest across the West Australian border. Almost halfway between Darwin and Broome (around 800 kilometres from Broome) you’ll find Kununurra, in the East Kimberley region of WA where waterfalls burst into life and the birdlife is abundant. Lake Kununurra is a fisherman’s paradise and the perfect place to set up camp. Here you’ll find 21 species of fish to catch, you can swim, canoe and launch into just about any motorised water sport you’d like. Carlton Gorge is the place to go for a boat cruise for spectacular cliffs and rock overhangs. During the wet season from November to March, waterfalls across the gorge spill over into spectacular cascades. If you have an eye for diamonds – let’s face it, who isn’t the slightest bit excited at a glimpse of a rare diamond? The Argyle Diamond Mine is located in the region, in the Matsu Ranges so go see the rare pink diamonds.

Nearby is Lake Argyle, the nation’s largest artificial lake. It’s a beautiful spot to fish at and explore the rugged ranges that surround it. Another adventure option is 250 kilometres south of Kununurra. Here you can hike through the secluded world heritage-listed Purnululu National Park – otherwise known as the ‘Bungle Bungles’. The Bungle Bungle Range gave its name to the small and striking sandstone dome-shaped range. Its grey and orange horizontal bands set it apart from any other red rock in the outback. Back towards the town of Kununurra is Mirima National Park, with the striking 600-million-year-old Zebra Rock, Black Rock Falls and Kelly’s Knob Lookout. In town you’ll find plenty of Indigenous art galleries, local jewellery and crafts. You’ll also find a pub full of character, and café. It’s a well-irrigated town so you’ll find it has a rather tropical feel. Surrounding farms cultivate melons, mangoes, Indian sandalwood, cotton, safflower and rice. You may recall some of Kununurra’s landscape in the Baz Luhrmann’s film Australia. It’s a peaceful and natural setting that will linger in your thoughts forever. Ready to tackle WA now? Getting there: This journey stretches for more than 3000 kilometres with plenty of detours along the way. Airlines operate in and out of both Rockhampton and Kununurra.

company and cruise alternating hours. A passenger ferry is also available for those with a light load. It’s not uncommon to see fit kayakers paddling across the bay.

Straddie, the second largest sand island on the planet, simply must be included in any east coast island hopping adventure, particularly for those wanting to cut their teeth on four-wheel driving before tackling the world-famous Fraser Island, or those wanting a pocket-sized version of Fraser with shorter distances to some incredible natural wonders.

Zipping past a pretty park that slopes down to the water with 100-year-old fig and camphor laurel trees, you’ll turn left onto East Coast Road, the island’s major arterial, at the Dunwich shopping strip, which offers the usual suspects for a small village – bakery, pizza shop, pharmacy and schools.

raser Island may win hands down as the largest sand island in the world and for its sheer number of tracks for four-wheel driving, but Queensland’s North Stradbroke Island, affectionately known as ‘Straddie’, takes the gong for its charm and accessibility from a major metropolis. You don’t have to put many kilometres on the clock to reach the island from Brisbane, yet you feel hundreds of kilometres away.

Considering Straddie’s close proximity to Brisbane (30 kilometres southeast of the capital as the crow flies), it’s surprising the number of locals who haven’t attempted the trek to set up a camp or caravan in one of the eight campgrounds on the island, nor discovered the charm of the three towns there. It’s an undiscovered and overlooked island paradise.

Time to start the journey. Disembarking the ferry or catamaran and hitting the sealed road at Dunwich, the city already feels hundreds of kilometres away and the clock is wound back to another decade. Time is lost.

Dunwich quickly ends up in the rear view mirror as you snake around the bend, then up over the hill where the Moreton Bay

The cost of the vehicular ferry, around $150, can act as a barrier for some. On the other hand, the absence of a bridge to the mainland has also helped retain the island’s feeling of untouched beauty, virgin forests and small population of around 2000 permanent residents. Aside from some industrial-looking machinery by the water at Dunwich, you wouldn’t guess that sand mining companies have been active on the island since 1949. Sand mining on Straddie will be phased out by 2027 and by 2026 80 per cent of the island will be converted to national park with more camping opportunities and walking tracks and still very restricted development. Currently around two-thirds of the island is under mining lease. But those who’ve trekked to Straddie become addicts in no time. They wear their Straddie four-wheel drive permit stickers like a badge of honour when they return to the metropolis and can’t stop grinning. That’s because it feels like one big secret, and those who intimately know the island don’t want to let the cat out of the bag just in case hordes of holidaymakers interrupt this peaceful experience. The journey from Cleveland to Dunwich, on North Stradbroke Island’s western side, is only 40 minutes. You can choose to board the older barge for a more rustic experience or the more modern catamaran with café and air conditioning above and vehicle space below.

“The hovering of the squid as it nears the surface is quite incredible. You suddenly feel so connected to the sea and the island.” QueenSland Brisbane

winks at you over the tops of the trees. The bush and water views quickly give way to a rugged, more arid and sparse native setting with low-lying scrub, small banksias and acacias dotting the landscape. This is the first sign that for a small island it offers great diversity. In around 10 minutes you’ll reach Amity Point, a small fishing village on the most northwestern tip of the island, still bayside. Here you really feel like you’ve stepped into beach holiday photos from the ’70s, a time when old beach shacks still existed and the more common family size was three or four kids who splashed around all day and by nightfall would hit their pillows so exhausted. This small town is certainly geared to young families and keen anglers. The camping grounds overlook the calm water and dolphin pods frequently play nearby. The beach here may not be patrolled but a swimming enclosure provides an added safety measure. At night along the town’s well-lit jetty the dolphins frolic close by because they like to capitalise on the large schools of fish that are lured to the jetty by the angler’s bait. Turtles, wobbegong sharks, and various colourful reef fish can also be found along Amity Point’s coral reef coastline. Aside from the snapper, bream and tailor jumping once the light falls and darkness washes in, night squidding is worth the experience from the jetty. High tides, cloudy or rainy nights are the best times. If you haven’t tried night squidding before then there’s no better place to test your fishing skills and tastebuds than at Amity Point. The tip is to find a position directly under a bulb because squid are attracted to the light like moths to a flame. The hovering of the squid as it nears the surface is quite incredible. You suddenly feel so connected to the sea and the island. Leaving Amity Point, it’s time for some four-wheel driving. Heading towards Point Lookout, just around the corner from Amity Point is the first four-wheel-drive bush track entry to Flinders Beach. Flinders Beach is an unpatrolled 4.6-kilometre beach with foreshore camping only accessible by a four-wheel drive along bush tracks or the beach outside of high tide times. The campground is nestled in the sand dunes and has compostible toilets available. When the tide is out, a beach gutter can be formed, providing a safe shallow and calm

swimming spot for little ones. The beach feels so remote, yet it’s only minutes away from either Amity Point or Straddie’s other more developed village, Point Lookout, where a fuel station, shops and restaurants can be found. Driving further east, you’ll turn off the beach just before Adder Rock Beach. It’s here you can jump aboard a dive boat out to one of three rocks for some serious sights. The summer months are best for viewing manta rays, one of the most glorious creatures to watch, like a beautiful black bird flapping its wings in slow motion. Reuniting with East Coast Road, you’ve arrived at Point Lookout, the surf side of the island. Here you’ll find a holiday hotspot, with a mix of old beach shacks, modern architect-designed houses, units, hotels and more camping grounds at Cylinder Beach, Home Beach and Main Beach. You’ll also find fresh seafood for sale direct from fishermen’s homes, such a quaint experience to pull up in a residential area, walk up a path to a sea shanty-style house and suddenly find yourself chatting about the day’s catch and exchanging money for the most delicious pearl perch, squid and prawns. Point Lookout has a surf club that serves cold beers on weekends, a couple of small grocery stores, pharmacy, bakery, cafés, bars and restaurants, including the refurbished Stradbroke Beach Hotel, great for a cold ale, delicious meal, chillout music and some serious whale watching from June to November. June is when the whales start their migration north to Hervey Bay via Straddie for the winter months and return south for the summer. Other great spots around Point Lookout for whale watching include Frenchmans Bay on Timbin Road, Cylinder Headland and the North Gorge Walk, an easy and stunning headland walk along a well-maintained purpose-built track. Here you’ll pass a blowhole, and have the chance to spot kangaroos and koalas, so much to see on such a short walk. This 1.2-kilometre pandanus palm and sheoak tree-lined circuit is recommended for all fitness levels and takes you to the island’s most easterly point, a rocky outcrop where

Stradbroke Island

coincidentally the best viewing of whales happens. This most eastern point of the island is only two metres inside Australia’s most easterly point at Cape Byron, Byron Bay. Further along the road at Point Lookout is Main Beach, where only the serious surfers dare catch a wave. It’s also where the surf club is located for a cold drink on weekends, and where more four-wheel driving can be experienced. If you’re up for a longer hike, back towards Dunwich is Blue Lake, where you can park your car at the main car park and walk a 5.2-kilometre round trip through a national park to an incredibly peaceful lake where you can swim and spot birds and reptiles. Brown Lake is the other freshwater experience, this one’s a tea-tree lake where you can float and heal. The lake is so named because the melaleuca and tea trees surrounding the lake tint the colour of the water brown with their tannin, just like a tea bag does to a pot of boiling water. You can literally park out front of this lake. There’s so much packed into the small island of Straddie, which makes staying an extra day easy and leaving so much harder. Getting there: Stradbroke Ferries offer the choice of two ferries from Cleveland. Trip highlights: Amity Point night squidding and dolphin frolicking, Flinders Beach camping, whale watching from the most easterly rocky outcrop along the North Gorge Walk, four-wheel driving along Flinders Beach, diving for manta rays, pro surfer spotting at Main Beach, hiking and swimming at Blue Lake and Brown Lake. When to go: Between June and November for whale watching and in the summer months to dive with manta rays. Must know: Check updates – www.straddiecamping.com.au/4wds.php – for four-wheel-driving information, particularly regarding beach erosion and restricted access to Main Beach. // For other Straddie information and accommodation deals contact Stradbroke Island Holidays – www.stradbrokeholidays.com.au

The iconic Bells Beach made famous by the movie Point Break

The historic Split Point Lighthouse at Aireys Inlet


More Than A Great Ocean Road Kirsty Smith / Images courtesy of Kirsty Smith & Escape2 Holiday Parks and Resorts

In one giant loop west of Melbourne you’ll discover historic lighthouses and towns, wild beaches, iconic rocks jutting from the sea, and cool rainforests.

S

ome roads give you a greater feeling of freedom than others, especially when you feel comfortable enough to just pull off to the side, whip out the fold-up chairs, salud the sunset and sleep under the stars. The Great Ocean Road breathes and exhales freedom and Torquay is the official starting point. Almost 100 kilometres southwest of Melbourne and just 20 kilometres south of historic town Geelong, Torquay is a quaint coastal town and home to popular surfing brands Ripcurl and Quicksilver for good reason. It’s a town of big surf. It sits on a beautiful sprawling beach bordered by lush green parklands with giant pines. You can’t leave town without a stroll along the beach esplanade listening to the thundering sound of the surf. It’s actually rather therapeutic and a good sign of the many natural wonders to come along the Great Ocean Road. With a lung full of fresh salt air, the surfing tour continues just south of Torquay to the iconic Bells Beach. The beach achieved global recognition from the 1991 film ‘Point Break’, starring Keanu Reeves. Since 1962 Bells Beach has hosted the world’s longest-running surfing competition, the Rip Curl Pro, and is renowned for its roaring swells over dangerous reef, which produce an outstanding righthand break. This beach is best left for the experienced surfer so unless you’re prepared to cop a pounding you may prefer to keep your feet on the sand. Heading further south, the Great Ocean Road passes through Aireys Inlet, another pretty coastal town boasting the historic Split Point Lighthouse, or ‘White Queen’ as she is affectionately known. Completed in 1891 the lighthouse has changed little since its construction. It converted to automatic operation in 1919 and remains a beacon of light for those boats passing Cape Otway. The lighthouse has dailyguided tours but unfortunately the original lighthouse keeper’s quarters, a detached

cottage built in the same year adjacent to the lighthouse, is now a privately-owned residence. Continuing south for approximately 19 kilometres along the Great Ocean Road the next charming seaside town to pull into is Lorne. Here you’ll find gorgeous boutique shops and cafés and of course wide sweeping shores. Whether it’s a picnic in the park overlooking the beach or morning tea at one of the quaint cafés, it’s definitely a lovely spot to absorb the seaside lifestyle. From Lorne to Apollo Bay the Great Ocean Road hugs the rugged cliffs making this the most spectacular section of this 243-kilometre road. With each twist and turn along this scenic route another stunning vista comes into view. On one side you may spot dolphins playing in the clear blue ocean waters of Bass Strait and on the other take in the green forest of the Otway National Park. Wind the window down and inhale the crisp sea air. It is really one of the world’s most picturesque coastal drives. After passing Apollo Bay the Great Ocean Road leaves the ocean behind and steers inland through the heart of the Great Otway National Park. This incredible ecosystem became so named after four parks, forests and land reserves amalgamated in 2004. This 103-squarekilometre park stretches from Torquay in the north to Princetown in the south and inland towards the small city of Colac. It has been a major timber source for over 150 years but has reduced its production since 1961. There are many fantastic picnic and camping spots within the Great Otway National Park. As the park is quite large and covers such a diverse stretch of land

the highlights are wide and varied. They range from magnificent dense forests including spectacular waterfalls, ferny gullies and serene lakes, to the resilient beach scrub atop rocky cliff headlands. Turning off the Great Ocean Road onto the Otway Lighthouse Road leads you to the most amazing sighting of wild koalas in their natural habitat. Chances are these chilled out marsupials will be working their way roadside through the select species of eucalypt tree where close encounters can be experienced. The koalas here are incredibly tame and in one tree alone up to three fuzzy-haired koalas can be seen eating, sleeping or relaxing on the branches. If it’s spring time, listen out for the extraordinary grunts and bellows of the affectionate male koala looking for love. A pleasant sheltered camping spot beside the ocean is Blanket Bay Campground. Continue along the Otway Lighthouse Road and turn left onto Blanket Bay Road and drive for approximately six kilometres to reach this quiet campsite. Enjoy an invigorating stroll along the beach before dinner and keep an eye out for those cute koalas as they also frequent this campground. One of the most spectacular sights to see along the Great Ocean Road is the majestic Twelve Apostles. Of these 12 original limestone stacks only eight remain today as the wind and swell continually shape and sculpt them. To view these natural beauties, park at the visitor centre located on the corner of the Booringa and the Great Ocean Roads and walk via a tunnel under the Great Ocean Road to the viewing platforms. The best time to see these imposing rocky cliffs is at the beginning or end of the day

when the light from the rising or setting sun is at its most glorious. The golden light radiating on the rolling waves and rock formations makes for the perfect picture. It’s also a great time to miss the main horde of tourists.

Melbourne

Great Ocean Road

The other sights to see while visiting the Twelve Apostles Marine National Park and the Port Campbell National Park are Gibson Steps, where visitors can reach the beach by an 86-step staircase and be dwarfed by the sheer cliff line, the Bay of Islands, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge. Discover the incredible history of Loch Ard Gorge and the tremendous tales of shipwrecks and the human spirit defying the odds. Port Campbell is an ideal spot to stay to be within easy reach of these iconic attractions. Sheltered by cliffs and Norfolk pines, the lively seaside village is home to restaurants and cafés, bakeries selling homemade goodies and vibrant shops and galleries. Many people leave the Great Ocean Road trailing behind at this point, heading northwest to meet the Princes Highway. If you can’t part with paradise just yet, continue the journey through Warrnambool and Port Fairy, to Portland. This is the spot to see seals playing in their natural habitat and in winter whales pass by on their annual migration. It’s a truly beautiful and peaceful town, the last major stop before you cross the border into South Australia. Otherwise, the next large town to visit after exiting the Great Ocean Road at Port Campbell is Colac, a town rich in farming and forestry history. Built alongside Lake Colac, which is home to abundant wildlife, there are plenty of water activities to enjoy from canoeing and kayaking to yachting and windsurfing. The Colac Botanic Gardens are also a lovely place to stroll. Continuing north to Victoria’s third largest city, Ballarat, famous for the Gold Rush years, stop off at Enfield State Park known for its own fossicking movement. Pan for gold along Misery Creek or enjoy peaceful walks, camping or mountain bike riding in this wildlife sanctuary. After passing through Ballarat, a town rich in history and the fastest growing regional centre in Victoria, it’s time to wet the whistle and sample some fine Australian wines. Approximately 170 kilometres east of Ballarat is the picturesque Yarra Valley wine region known for its high-quality chardonnay, sparkling and pinot noir.

The beautiful Mountain Ash trees stand tall in the peaceful rainforest of the Yarra Ranges National Park

Approximately one hour northeast of Melbourne’s CBD, this award-winning wine region hosts not only the worldrenowned wineries but also familyowned and boutique cellars. There are approximately 50 wineries open for cellar door tastings and sales. Relax, unwind and sample the magnificent flavours of some award-winning wines while looking out over the sprawling hilly green estates. The Yarra Ranges National Park is a short drive from Healesville, which borders the Yarra Valley in the east. Follow the Maroondah Highway for a lovely winding drive through dense rainforests housing many species of mammals and birds. So now you’ve soaked up some fresh ocean and forest air, satisfied your budding photographic talents, explored your adventurous streak roadside under the stars, and even satisfied that wine connoisseur side of you, it’s time to map out where the next road to freedom will be. Getting there: Fly into Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport or drive in from the neighbouring states. Trip highlights: The Great Ocean Road: The quaint coastal towns of Torquay, Anglesea, Aireys Inlet, Lorne, Apollo Bay, Princetown, Port Campbell, Warrnambool and Portland. Enjoy the stunning Great Otway National Park and the historic lighthouses of Cape Otway and Airleys Inlet.

Ballarat: One of Australia’s most significant gold rush towns; Yarra Valley: Tantalise your tastebuds with a tour of Victoria’s stunning wine region; and Yarra Ranges National Park. When to go: This slice of Victoria can be enjoyed any time of year and has a variable climate. Summers can be very hot, autumns are quite mild, winters can be crisp and spring time cool. Victoria, after Tasmania, is the wettest Australian state with the heaviest rainfalls falling in the Otway Ranges.

here’s no doubt Western Australia’s great southwest region including Margaret River is popular, particularly south along the coast. But less explored is the road a little further inland, starting approximately 90 kilometres northeast of Albany, along Chester Pass Road, and 440 kilometres southwest of Perth. Let’s find out what this rough diamond has to offer. The rugged ranges of the Stirling Range National Park are home to Bluff Knoll, where you can find spectacular views, an abundance of wildflowers, bird and animal life and a great camping spot that’s particularly incredible in the twilight hours. This heritage-listed national park protects the mountains and hills that stretch approximately 65 kilometres from east to

west including the tallest peak, Bluff Knoll, which stands at just over 1000 metres above sea level. The Stirling Range was named after Captain James Stirling, the first Governor of Western Australia, on November 4, 1835. For keen hikers there are a number of peaks to conquer, such as Toolbrunup, the second highest peak, however Bluff Knoll is ranked as one of the best walks in Australia among intrepid hikers, and is definitely the most popular in the park. Even from the Bluff Knoll access road the view of this commanding range is amazing. The low-lying thick scrub parts ways for the straight, dead-flat bitumen road to pass through. It leads right up to the base of Bluff Knoll where the internationallyacclaimed hike begins.

Spring is a fantastic season to visit the ranges to see the hundreds of different wildflowers in full bloom

“Over 1500 different flower species exist here, of which at least 87 are not found anywhere else on the planet.” On a clear day the views on the Bluff Knoll walk are endless

The Bluff Knoll walk is a six-kilometre return trip along a well-maintained path lined with a diverse array of flora and fauna. Over 1500 different flower species exist here, of which at least 87 are not found anywhere else on the planet. The hike can be challenging, however the 360-degree views from the top are definitely worth the effort. The best time to visit the park is from late spring to early summer when the wildflowers are at their prettiest and the days offer a perfect temperature for hiking. Be aware though, when high up on Bluff Knoll bad weather can still roll in at this time of year. The ranges are actually one of the few places in Western Australia where snow does occasionally fall; a five-centimetre recording has been documented on Bluff Knoll. Moingup Springs is the only campground within the Stirling Range National Park and is a lovely spot to enjoy a cool beverage and watch the sun descend over the ranges before the night sky fills with stars. As Moingup Springs is located within the park, camping among the tough Australian bush is a peaceful and relaxing experience especially when a kangaroo or two hop past the picnic table at dawn or dusk. Further up the road from the Stirling Range National Park is yet another iconic Australian rock formation, Wave Rock. This 15-metre high and 110-metre long granite rock formation lies within the Hyden Wildlife Park, approximately 285 kilometres northeast of the Stirling Range and 340 kilometres southeast of Perth. The giant cliff overhang that is Wave Rock was caused by subsurface water erosion and chemical weathering many millions of years ago. The beautiful brown, grey, red and yellow colours of the granite rock are seen during the wetter months when water from springs run down the face of the wave bringing with it different chemical deposits. The walk around Hyden and Wave Rock is a unique experience, just watch out for the countless flies. It is also an idea to view the Rock at different times of the day to see this natural beauty in various lights. While in the area, Mulka’s Cave is worth a visit to study the Indigenous rock art. It can be a very peaceful and even eerie place. The little country towns dotted along this stretch between Albany and Perth are worth a stop to fill up the tank, grab an ice cream or have a chat to a friendly local. They typify the laidback nature of Australian outback towns and make the rugged journey just as unique as the destination.

Getting there: The Stirling Range National Park lies approximately 90 kilometres northeast of Albany and 440 kilometres southwest of Perth. Hyden Wildlife Park is approximately 285 kilometres northeast of the Stirling Range and 340 kilometres southeast of Perth. Trip highlights: Stirling Range National Park – Bluff Knoll, Hyden Wildlife Park – Wave Rock and Mulka’s Cave. When to go: Spring, when the wildflowers are at their best. Hot dry summers and mild winters characterise this area’s climate. Must know: Always remember to bring a comprehensive first aid kit as well as ample water. Sunscreen and bug repellent should also be on the packing list. //

Get up close and personal with the resident bottlenose dolphins at Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort

The remote Vlamingh Head Lighthouse 17km from Exmouth on Cape Range


The stretch from Shark Bay to Port Hedland is a land of extremes, bringing you face to face with a raw beauty and an interaction with the wild. Curious?

T

he North West Coastal Highway has the ability to stamp its remarkable landscapes into your heart forever. It introduces you to some of the most incredibly beautiful places where the red ochre desert meets the pure white sand and the sparking emerald sea. It shows you how the marine life can survive and even thrive in a clean and remote bay and reef despite the challenges of mining and port operations only a few hundred kilometres away. Keen to get started? While Geraldton is officially the southern start for the North West Coastal Highway, Shark Bay, 450 kilometres north, will be the first port of call on this road trip. At around 850 kilometres north of Perth, you enter the Shark Bay World Heritage Area. Twenty-five kilometres past the small township of Denham you arrive at Monkey Mia. Here you meet the famous dolphins that have been visiting the beach to interact with tourists for nearly 50 years. At Monkey Mia each morning you’ll meet the bottlenose dolphins, an interaction that’s been going since the 1960s. Here you can also encounter dugongs, turtles, manta rays and tiger sharks a little further out, perhaps as you snorkel off a boat. From Monkey Mia you can access the spectacular Francois Peron National Park where you’ll see wildflowers, striking and colourful coastlines and you can relax with some hiking or fishing. The Shark Bay area is comprised of two peninsulas: Edel Land, with rocky limestone and endless sand dunes somersaulting onto the beach. On its western side are striking cliffs and on the eastern side are bays and inlets with small rocky islands just a stone’s throw away. The Peron Peninsula is probably most photographed of the two peninsulas. Here you’ll see rolling red sand hills punctuated by salty gypsum hollows. The coastline stretching north to Carnarvon looks spectacular from here with its tidal flats and crawling plain.

Hamelin Pool is where you’ll find these stromatolites because its water is double as salty as normal seawater and very few sea creatures can survive in these conditions, which means no predators. In fact it’s one of only three places in the world where you can see them. While there are some remote fishing spots at Steep Point, Dirk Hartog Island and the northern beaches of Francois Peron National Park, four-wheel drives are recommended for these areas. Caravans are generally advised to stay put at Denham and Monkey Mia.

Shothole and Charles Knife canyons will give you some great hiking opportunities and the Yardie Creek Gorge will make your jaw drop.

Exmouth to Karratha Be prepared for a long stretch where cows can wander onto the road from nearby paddocks. It seems funny that cattle stations aren’t fenced off from the road but that’s just how it is in this remote region. While we’re talking animals on the road, also watch out for the kangaroos and emus so avoid driving in the dark, at dawn or dusk.

Shark Bay to Coral Bay

Karratha is an iron ore mine hub and also a seaside town. From here the Dampier Archipelago, a string of islands off the coast, make a stunning backdrop and can be accessed from nearby Dampier, just under 20 kilometres away.

Feel like seeing some whale sharks? Then head 500 kilometres north to Coral Bay, the gateway to Ningaloo Marine Park – on what is the second largest fringing reef in Australia – 260 kilometres long from Coral Bay to Exmouth.

Millstream Chichester (Karijini) National Park is only two hours from Karratha. It’s an oasis where you can find palm-fringed rockpools and deep gorges, quite the contrast to the surrounding hills covered with spinifex.

Ningaloo is a thriving reef with some 250 coral reef species and 500 fish species. It’s also very shallow and accessible because it’s only between two and four metres below the water surface and just five to 10 metres from the beach. Snorkel masks can be adjusted on the beach and you can literally push off from the sand and onto the reef.

Then there’s the Burrup Peninsula for some ancient Aboriginal rock art. Here it’s fourwheel drive access only.

In January each year you can see turtles hatching on the beach. From March to June you’ll get close to the gentle whale shark, which grows up to 14 metres long. You can even swim safely with this placid filter feeder, which lives mostly on plankton. Coral spawning – a three-day event – happens a week or so after a full moon in March and April. Well worth the visit to see millions of bright pink eggs and sperm bundles released to the water surface. From June to November you’ll spy the humpback whales. The deeper offshore waters of Coral Bay are popular among many female whales for giving birth. Then between August and September you’ll see a beautiful spread of wildflowers, including Sturt Desert Peas and the Bird Flower.

Coral Bay to Exmouth

Shark Bay also features Dirk Hartog Island, named after the first recorded European to set foot on the Australian mainland in 1616.

Continue along the peninsula for 150 kilometres and you’ll reach Exmouth, another great launching point to the Ningaloo Reef.

The bay’s sheltered waters, with seagrass meadows, channels and banks, are on average only nine metres deep. Tidal flats, mangroves and white-shelled beaches frame these waters. On the seaside is surf and reef.

Here you’ve reached Australia’s answer to the Mediterranean. With a similar dry climate, you can see and experience some gorgeous swimming beaches with powder-white sands, picturesque bays, the Mandu Mandu Gorge, its threekilometre track and some great snorkelling.

The living fossils known as ‘stromatolites’ are the major contributor to Shark Bay’s world heritage listing. They date back 3000 years, however are similar to the life forms found on the planet up to 3.5 billion years ago.

worth exploring. On the northern most tip of this cape is the Vlamingh Head Lighthouse, 17 kilometres from the Exmouth town.

Cape Range National Park nearby on the northwest cape features rugged limestone ranges, deep gorges and canyons and 50 kilometres of stunning beaches, definitely

Karratha to Port Hedland After a 240-kilometre journey from Karratha you’ll arrive at Port Hedland, the world’s largest iron ore port. From here it’s possible to tour the giant port facilities. You could also visit the ghost town of Cossack, where the pearling industry first thrived before being relocated to Broome. Today you still find ruins of houses dating back to the 1800s and now listed by National Trust. So, after this journey of contrasts, care to continue to Broome to see what the pearling industry is up to these days? Getting there: In around 1200 kilometres you can venture from Shark Bay to Port Hedland. Airlines operate in and out of Exmouth and Port Hedland. When to go: The drier months of May to October will help you avoid the cyclonic weather – mainly the depression of rain – in the area. Phone Main Roads for road condition reports.

NORTHERN TERRITORY

The Kakadu Experience Nicole Navarro

Photo credit: Ryan Easterbrook

The road trip from Darwin to Kakadu National Park is one big tick off the must-do list for many travellers… let’s find out why.

W

hat is it about Kakadu that’s so intriguing for many travellers? Is it the remoteness of the place? Because Kakadu’s entrance gates are actually only around 250 kilometres from a capital city… perhaps it’s the perceived higher population of crocodiles to humans on any given day that makes it so intimidating. Right, time to grab the torch and get a glimpse of what this monster national park is all about. The morning after a gorgeous sunset at Nightcliff beach in Darwin – a must-do for anyone visiting the capital, the four-wheel drive hits the Stuart Highway early. As the town Humpty Doo approaches – home to the big boxing crocodile and mango plantations – it’s your signal to turn left onto the Arnhem Highway towards Jabiru. Whizzing past Humpty Doo, highway signs point to the wetland region, a plain that floods in wet season and becomes home to thousands of migratory birds. Fogg Dam is the wetland to stop at. It’s a 35-kilometre detour but worth the trip to see a unique collection of bird species perched along the dam wall and to take one of the many short and accessible hikes. Back to the Arnhem Highway and East Alligator River crocodile cruise signs appear roadside. Time to jump on a boat where the only thing that separates you from the crocodile launching itself out of the water to catch the bait is a thick glass panel. It makes you quite giddy to see the sheer strength these creatures have and how high they can jump for food. It’s natural at this point to question who actually is at the top of the food chain. With a brief stop in to the Djukbinj National Park for some more viewing of waterbirds,

brolgas, egrets and magpie geese feeding, the trip continues to Mary River National Park where from a lookout you can view the Mary River floodplain. Barramundi fishing is also very popular here with fishing trips heading out most days. Arriving at the Kakadu National Park entrance gates is an adrenalin rush. This is the largest national park in the nation. At just under 20,000 square kilometres it stretches almost 200 kilometres from south to north and more than 100 kilometres from east to west – it’s a monster – approximately one-third of the size of Tasmania. Kakadu has some of the most unique ecosystems and one of the largest collection of Aboriginal rock art spanning across thousands of years. First to explore is the rock art galleries at Nourlangie and Ubirr, followed by a Yellow Water Billabong cruise. The next mission is scaling the rugged gorges and escarpments, exploring the pristine wetlands at Yellow Water, swimming in lagoons surrounded by paperbark forests and under thundering waterfalls – preferably uninhabited by saltwater crocs – and seeing as many of the 1600 plant species and 200 species of birdlife as possible. All in five or so days. Given the relatively high population of crocs at Kakadu, it may be surprising to discover that the choice on where you’d like to set up camp is all yours, at your own risk. The national park office will advise on locations and waterholes to stay clear of, though there are never any guarantees of avoiding crocs. Advice on camping a minimum of 50 metres from the water is provided – along with other information for staying safe.

Some campsites may cost $5 per night while others may be free. Cooinda is a popular campground. There are so many parts of the park to see so the important part is to do your research and plan the trip before you go. Jurassic Park eat your heart out! Getting there: From Darwin take the Stuart Highway south then turn east onto the Arnhem Highway and continue for around 250 kilometres until you see the Kakadu gates on the left. Trip highlights: Fogg Dam, East Alligator River cruise and crocodile spotting, Mary River National Park, Kakadu National Park. When to go: The drier months of May to October will allow you to cover more distance in the park and experience some free ranger-guided talks and walks.

PLANNING YOUR TRIP

Whether you fancy a weekend jaunt, a fortnight trip over the school holidays, or the big dream getaway around the country, planning and preparation prior to departure is a critical factor in making your trip successful and enjoyable.

P

lanning your trip need not be a chore. In fact, it becomes part of the fun, building the anticipation until departure day when you finally hit the road. Planning your trip can be broken down into segments, each addressing certain aspects and requirements of your journey.

Travel objectives No doubt everybody planning a trip will have a favoured location in mind, whether it be Uluru or Urunga, but whatever the destination, you’ll need to work out how to get there, how long you’ll be staying and what you’ll see en route. For single destination travellers the first thing to look at is the time available to you. It’s no good planning a trip from Melbourne to Mackay if you only have a week free. You’ll need to allow adequate time for travelling and plenty of time to enjoy the delights of your chosen location. Dig out the maps and plan a route that involves main road travel and easy driving, and allow for overnight accommodation in transit. For those contemplating visiting a number of locations, perhaps in a loop or round trip, the objectives become a little more complicated.

Route planning If a long range trip is your dream, plan your route to take advantage of the incredible variety of locations you’ll pass along the way.

Go Caravan and Camping Guide


This may take you off the main roads, but you’ll see so much more than just barrelling along a highway. Trawl the various tourism websites to find out what’s along your route, and plan your daily drives to include them. Many folks on long trips never travel much more than 100km in a day, hopping from location to location and having plenty of time to see the sights. If you can arrange it, plan your visits to coincide with festivals or other activities. These can be heaps of fun and add much to your enjoyment of the trip. Again, the tourism websites should have dates and times of these events recorded. And don’t be afraid to check out some of the quirkier smaller events, such as the mouse races at Bylong in NSW, or yabbie racing at Charleville QLD. Stopovers can be locked in right at the planning stage. Booking campsites and van park accommodation ahead is a good idea, particularly in school holidays and peak travel times, or if your planned stopover coincides with a major event, such as the Birdsville Races or Elvis Festival. If you’re heading into more remote country, fuel, food and water stops have to be built into your travel plans. Be aware of the fuel consumption of your vehicle, particularly if you’re towing a loaded caravan, and allow plenty of overlap between fuel stops. Keep fuel types in mind, also. Diesel and ordinary

unleaded are widely available, but not so autogas or premium unleaded. Once you’ve accumulated all this information, record it on a laptop or in a notebook. You can also use travel times, distances travelled and the number of stopovers you’ll be making, to work out a rough budget so you can keep an eye on costs. Be aware that the cost of fuel and some foodstuffs is higher in country areas than it is in the cities.

Maps and GPS Good, detailed maps are an essential part of a long range trip. Similarly, a GPS unit will provide regular updates of your position. Both these items will make things easier if you’re looking for a track into a remote campsite, fishing spot or fossicking area. Remember that the GPS will be unlikely to show detail of many remote spots, so good maps, particularly recent topographic maps, will ensure you’ll find what you’re looking for.

Rig preparation No matter what your form of transport – 4WD, caravan, motorhome, camper trailer or simply tents loaded in the car boot – you’ll need to give all your travel gear a thorough checkover before you go. For a start, you’ll need to have your vehicle fully serviced to ensure it is completely reliable. If you’re heading off on dirt roads, be sure to inform your vehicle serviceman. He’ll make sure fuel, oil and air filters are

serviceable and that oils and greases are topped up. Make sure brakes and gearbox are all functioning properly. If you plan to tow a caravan or camper trailer, you’ll need to give these rigs a good going over. Check the wheels and tyres on the van. Make sure the tyres are in good shape, with plenty of tread, and that the wheel nuts are tight. It’s not a bad idea to hop underneath the RV and check the securing nuts on the suspension and make sure the underside hoses and cables are all tucked up out of the way. Check to see the RV’s electrics are all working and that house battery chargers are operating. If you have solar panels up top, pick a sunny day and make sure they are producing power. Make sure also that electric trailer brakes (if fitted) are working properly. Check the rear lights on the RV, as well as the clearance lights, and make sure gas bottles are mounted securely and are not leaking around the fittings: a bit of water and detergent does the job here; slop it around the connections, and if you get bubbles, you have a leak. Inside your RV, check all cupboard latches for a secure closure, make sure all your crockery is packed securely and can’t rattle about, and test-run your fridge to make sure it’s operating correctly. Also check your door, window and overhead hatch seals, especially those at the rear of the Go Caravan and Camping Guide

van, to avoid leaks in rainy weather, or dust ingress on dirt roads. Make sure the external bits and pieces for your van are all operable and secure. Check that things like jacks, power leads, water hoses, flat blocks for the corner steadies and poles and ropes for the annex are all stowed securely. The hitch is what keeps your van or camper following you, so make sure it’s clean and serviceable, ensure safety chains are fitted, and carry a couple of spare D-shackles in case you lose one. Give the electrical connectors a squirt of WD-40 to ensure a clean connection. It also pays to include a few cable ties, just in case you need to secure any cabling either on the A-frame or under the van. If you’re simply toting a tent, erect it in the backyard before you pack it for the trip. Make sure all the ropes and poles are there, and in decent condition, and the fly is free of holes. Refer to the checklist on the following page which outlines much of the gear you’ll need to consider taking on your trip.

Safety / home security If you’re off on a long touring holiday you’ll need to take care of more than just your travelling gear. Personal and home considerations need to be included in your trip planning. For a start, most folks who are able to get away for long periods are of an age where regular medications must be taken. These medications are a priority and before you head off you should ask your doctor for a fresh prescription to allow you to maintain a regular supply. And don’t forget the Medicare card. Besides the prescription medication, you should also pack such things as sunscreen, anti-itch cream for bites and a basic first aid kit with bandaids and ointments. Ensure your home and car insurances are up to date, and cover and road service is available to you in the states you’ll be travelling through. It’s a good idea to take a photocopy of the policies with you. Your home needs some special attention. The worst thing you can do is hit the road and expect the house will look after itself. A yard full of long grass and weeds, and a letterbox overflowing with mail, makes a place look abandoned and is liable to attract the attention of crooks. One option is to arrange for your yard to be maintained on a regular basis, and fit timers to radios and some internal lights, or have friends or relatives stop over occasionally to look after the place. These days house-sitters are a common option – folks who actually live in your home, look after it and collect your mail. With people there all the time it’s less likely the crooks will be attracted to it.

Communications We all depend on communications these days and there are a number of options available

60

Go Caravan and Camping Guide

for the traveller, even in those remote areas of the country. Mail forwarding Snail mail can be collected by friends or relatives and forwarded to a designated Post Office along your route. Similarly, there are a number of mail forwarding services that will do the same. CB radios CB radios are almost essential for any long road trips. They are line-of-sight units with a fairly short range, but they allow you to communicate with other vanners – generally on channel 18 – or let you listen in on the truck band – sometimes channel 40 or channel 8. The truck bands can often carry a bit of blue language, but if it worries you, turn it down. If there are problems on the road, you’ll hear about it on the truck channels. They can also often relay a message for you if you get into strife. Mobile phones Mobile phones are everywhere – everybody on the planet has one, but they don’t always work outside the larger towns and built up areas. The best option is a mobile hooked into the Next G network. This has a much wider coverage in the bush, however, it too is limited, and the further away from towns you go, the less chance of coverage. Laptop computers Every traveller should have a laptop along with them. Aside from the obvious communications benefits of email and programs like Skype, they also allow you to store your digital images and provide a perfect diary for you to record your trip. Internet Next G modems are available for laptops that will give you the same coverage as Next G mobiles. Many van parks and remote towns have internet cafés where you can access the internet.

Email access There are plenty of programs available to allow you to access your home emails from a remote location, either via your laptop or mobile phone. Satellite phones Satellite phones are probably the ultimate in communication devices for travellers in remote country. They are much more expensive to buy and operate than mobile phones, but they will work anywhere and can be a lifesaver if things go wrong. EPIRBs Boaties and bushwalkers (should) know about these devices. The acronym stands for Electronic Position Indicating Radio Beacon, and for those operating out in the trackless outback, they can be a lifesaver. If you head off across the desert, either on a camping trip or with an off-road camper trailer behind, and the worst happens, activating an EPIRB will bring help. It fires an emergency radio signal that can be picked up by satellites or aircraft. It’s a locator beacon and rescuers can home in on it. EPIRBs have saved a lot of lives. It also pays to leave a touring plan with relatives or friends so that, should the need arise, your whereabouts can be traced. This may sound a little extreme, but things can go wrong, and if you’re in an area where ordinary communications won’t work, and the worst happens, at least someone knows roughly where you’ll be.

Recording your trip Believe it or not, this is one of the most important aspects of your travels. Sure, it may not involve safety, but it will definitely enhance your trip. The real challenge is making the time to record as much as you can, right from the beginning. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of heading off on the big trip, but make it a point to record every aspect of your journey, no matter how trivial it seems at the time. And remember, the more extensive the record you keep, the better. When you return


home you’ll get a whole lot of pleasure in reliving the journey with friends or relatives, and a visual and written record is far better than just memories. Cameras – still and video You simply must take a camera with you. These days digital cameras are really very good and are reasonably priced. Make sure the camera outfit you get has a download capability so you can store your images on your computer. It also pays to have a CD or DVD burner in your computer so that you can store your images on disk. Video cameras are also excellent for recording aspects of your trip, and they are also reasonably priced. With the right software and connections these video records can also be loaded onto disk. Some folks like to make notes in a diary, which is fine, but it’s just as easy to sit down at the end of each day and record your notes on the computer. These notes can also serve as an accounting record, keeping tabs on the costs involved on the trip. It’s also a good idea to record any little glitches you have along the way, such as items you’ve left at home, or stuff that doesn’t operate the way it should. When you return from your trip this record will provide a trigger for all the memories you’ve accumulated, and will also serve as the basis of planning your next big journey. //

Touring T

Tips

We’d all like to head off into the sunset and just keep on touring, but two major factors will determine if this is for you – time and money.

he time available for cruising ‘round the country is purely up to the individual. Family factors, employment factors and even health factors all come into the equation. The essential thing is to allocate your available time so that you maximise the experience and your enjoyment of the journey. For time-limited folks, this may well mean abandoning the dreams of a long, hurried trip around the country, and just selecting a section or region to be explored at your leisure. When time does become available to you, certainly you can take on extended trips, but in the meantime, use the time you have to really enjoy any trip you undertake. For those lucky enough to be able to simply head off and return when it suits, just remember to plan your trip to include even the most obscure little towns, national parks and scenic locations. Some of these out-of-the-way places may well become a highlight of your journey. Money is a genuinely limiting factor for most of us, and there is no way of escaping that fact. However, there are ways of keeping your daily expenditure to a minimum, and this may well allow you to extend your trip.

Saving a buck or six The first and most obvious factor in our travel costs is fuel. Yep, it’s expensive and it’s not likely to get any cheaper, at least

62

Go Caravan and Camping Guide

in the short term. And the further you get off the beaten track, the more expensive it becomes. Another fuel factor to keep in mind is availability. Some choose to use gas/LPG in their vehicles for the initial cost factor alone. Certainly LPG is cheaper than other fuels, but consumption is higher, thus limiting the range between fill-ups. LPG fuels are also not available everywhere, so if you’re using it, check ahead to make sure fuel can be obtained all along your route. Similarly, premium unleaded fuels are not always available, so again, check ahead. It’s no surprise that most touring vehicles use diesel, with ordinary unleaded fuels in second place. The prime reason is they are widely available. With long range tanks a diesel can chug away over a long distance, with plenty of grunt for towing a van. But fuel costs aside, there are ways of reducing fuel consumption that will save a dollar. Drive smarter Lose the lead foot! Learn to drive more smoothly, with less hard acceleration, and don’t punch through the speed limits. It’s amazing what a drop of 5km/hr will produce in the way of fuel consumption savings. Lose weight Nah, I’m not talking about your body fat index (though these days they reckon we should all shed a few kilos – they’re right, I suppose). Every kilo you cart along with

you adds to the amount of fuel your rig consumes. Just because your RV has plenty of cupboards and storage space, it doesn’t mean that you have to stuff them full of gear that you might never use. Careful planning when loading your rig for a long trip will save weight, and fuel consumption. Be selective with the clothes you pack – don’t take the entire wardrobe. Kitchen items should be kept to a minimum. If there are two of you travelling, don’t pack a dinner setting for eight. You’ll only need one frypan, not a full set, and so on. If you’re hopping from van park to van park, it’s not necessary to fill up your on-board water tanks every morning. Every 100 litres of water you cart along is 100kg extra weight your tow vehicle has to lug along. Use common sense and keep your rig’s weight to a minimum. Maintain your rig On the subject of your rig, remember maintenance. This should be standard procedure anyway, but by servicing and maintaining your entire rig – filters, lubrication, tyre pressures and so on, your fuel costs will be lower. Downsizing This is not everyone’s cup of tea, but these days many folks are looking to smaller, lighter rigs. A lighter caravan means less energy is required to tow it, and that

means a smaller-engined vehicle. This opens up the range of tow cars and avoids the necessity of going up to the V8 diesels required to lug big, heavy vans around. It’s also very practical to have a smaller van in other ways. For example, when you’re travelling up north over winter, which many, many southerners do, you’ll be spending most of your time outdoors, under the awning, eating or just sitting around. The van will be used largely for sleeping, dressing and privacy only. Do you really need all the space available in a big rig?

We service, repair and stock spare parts for these brands.

Drive less Again, this is one of the great money savers. Shorten the overall travel distance of each trip, or lengthen the time allocated for the trip and drive less each day. In the first case, obviously you’ll use less fuel over that shorter distance. In the second case, even though the overall fuel consumption for the trip will not be lessened, the costs will be spread out over a longer time. If you are on a fixed income such as super payments, the shorter daily drives mean less of a hit on that weekly income.

Other money saving hints Aside from fuel, there are plenty of other ways to save a dollar. Roadside fruit and veggie stalls On many routes the local farmers will put fresh veggies on a roadside stall near their

than the canned variety anyway. Make sure you carry spices such as curry, chilli and mustard powders to add a bit of variety to your meals. We all need to save a dollar on our travels, but with a little planning and common sense, it’s easy to stretch your money just that little bit further.

Some general travel and touring tips Check your weights. Make sure your loaded caravan will not exceed the towing capacity of your vehicle. Do you have a jack? Some vans are not supplied with one. If you are relying on your car jack, make sure it will work successfully on your caravan. When travelling on dirt roads or off road, take two spare wheels for the tow car and two for the caravan. front gate. Often the prices will be very reasonable, and there’ll be an ‘honesty box’ for the cash. Keep yourself abreast of the cost of veggies in supermarkets and you’ll soon see if you can pick up a bargain. You’ll end up with fresher veggies for less outlay, and you’ll be doing the local farmers a favour. Independent camping This is a contentious point in some circles, but a few days of independent camping each week can keep you on the road for ages. How? Well, the obvious saving lies in the fact that you’ll save two or three nights’ van park site costs, which is a handy fuel cost offset. There are many campsites around the country where free camping is allowed, provided that your rig is pretty much self-contained. Dump one day’s luxury Okay, so one man’s luxury is another man’s same old, same old. But, if you replace a $20 bottle of red with a $5 cleanskin a couple of nights a week you’ve picked up $30. At 16 litres per 100km fuel consumption that’s 100km of driving in today’s diesel money. If you dodge a couple of happy hours altogether you’ll save a bit more, but heck, happy hours are fun! Learn to catch a fish You know, it’s amazing the number of people who have never learned to catch fish, or have some kind of ideological objection to fishing. Humans have been fishing for food for many thousands of years. Catching a feed of fish satisfies your hunting instincts, provides a very healthy meal that you would otherwise have paid for, and the best part is, it’s great fun! Learning to fish could be the biggest money saver of your trip. Learn to fossick For some, travelling and touring is actually a way to turn a profit. In fact, many take off on annual trips to known fossicking spots and make a darn good living out of gemstone or gold scratching.

64

Go Caravan and Camping Guide

There are plenty of tricks to this trade, but they really are fun tricks to learn, and the fossicking gear need not be expensive, nor add too much weight to your rig. There are lots of ‘how to’ books and DVDs around, and many areas right around the country that allow casual fossicking. But beware! This can become addictive! Cook smarter There are many occasions where you can cook using other people’s fuel, or just use as little as possible to produce a meal or three, or cook smarter using cheaper materials to produce something that would cost twice as much in a shop. For example, many van parks have camp kitchens with BBQs and all the other works. Use them rather than use up your own gas supplies. After all, the use of those facilities is factored into the camp fees. This also applies to camping in national parks grounds. Often firewood is supplied, and included in the camping fees, so take advantage of that fuel, and save your on-board supply. Another neat trick is to cook up a meal or two in advance and use your on-board freezer. This is even more of a saving if you have one of those thermal cooking pots. In a van park, for example, use the van park’s gas to get a big pot of stew or soup cooking in the morning, then load it into the thermal cooker, and off you go. When you arrive at your next stopover that afternoon, perhaps a neat camp by a river, you have a hot meal ready for you, without using your on-board fuel, and what’s left can be put in the freezer for later. Shop smarter Buy bulk if possible and practicable. Before you go, stock up on dry goods that need no refrigeration (cheaper in city markets than in the bush). Stock up on the ‘makins’ of favourite, hearty meals. Avoid canned veggies, soups or stews. They add a load of weight. Aim for fresh veggies where possible, and ‘camp’-made soups and stews are better

Fire safety is paramount. Ensure your van has a fire extinguisher, a fire blanket and smoke detectors fitted. At each stopover, give the entire rig the once-over. When departing from a van park, make sure water hoses and mains power leads are disconnected. Be aware of the width and height of your rig, particularly in van parks or campsites where trees are close or above the road. Include rooftop accessories like air conditioners, hatches and TV antennas when working out the height. If you are travelling in convoy, keep a good distance apart, at least 100m, to allow following traffic to pass. And keep your headlights on. If travelling with a pet, plan your trip to ensure the van parks where you’ll be staying will allow your furry friends to enter. Check the van park listings in this guide before you go. Make sure you have all your pet’s bits and pieces, food and water bowls, lead, waste bags, favourite toys and so on. Take a supply of Dettol in a plastic spray container – a great antiseptic for cuts and so on. Cryovac your meat supply. It will store longer in your fridge. Learn how to make a damper. It’s one of Aussie camping’s best treats – hot damper with butter and golden syrup – outstanding! My recipe is 2 cups of self-raising flour, about ¾ cup of milk or water and a slurp of beer. Mix it up until doughy and cook in a camp oven (ideally) or your caravan oven for about half an hour. (If you’re using a camp oven, remember to put some hot coals on the lid – that’s why it has a raised lip.) Use a piece of shadecloth as a groundsheet in your annex. The accumulated dirt and dust will fall through the holes, making it easier to keep clean. And don’t forget a dustpan and brush. //


On The

ROad Much of your touring time will be spent on the road, getting from point A to B. While there is nothing particularly onerous about driving an RV outfit, it pays to ensure you get to your destination comfortably and safely. Towing Successful towing is very similar to successful driving. All it takes is practice and common sense. If you are unsure of your ability to tow a van or trailer, take a safe towing course before you go. There you’ll learn all the skills required to handle your rig. Then, it’s just a matter of practice.

On road courtesy Most RV rigs will be considerably restricted in performance compared to almost all other

traffic. You might feel comfortable tooling along at 20km below the speed limit, but not everyone wants to do that. If you find you are accumulating a ‘tail’ of vehicles behind you, pull over when you can do so safely, and let them past. Do the same for trucks and road trains. These folks have to make a living, so don’t make it any harder for them by slowing them down. Pull over when you can do so safely and let ‘em by. When pulling over on such occasions you should ensure you get your rig well off to the side away from the traffic lane. Use hard surfaced lay bys and parking lanes and avoid pulling over on the dirt. This may throw rocks at the vehicles behind, or destabilise your own rig.

Safety and fatigue Long distance driving can be easy for some and difficult for others. The main thing is, if you are starting to feel tired and weary, pull over and take a break. There are plenty of roadside rest stops for RVs and other cars – but don’t use those reserved just for big rigs. Most rest stops are signposted well ahead.

these areas and check weather forecasts before travelling. Buffet from trucks, either when you are overtaking them, or vice versa, can largely be negated by setting your rig up correctly. Before you go, make sure your rig is well balanced so that there is neither too little weight on the ball, nor too much. This will make road handling much smoother. A weight distribution hitch helps in levelling out the rig and also performs an ‘anti-sway’ function. It’s a good idea to see your local caravan dealer or repairer and have him check your rig out for balance. If you do find your rig getting a tail wobble on the road, back off on the accelerator – slowing down usually does the trick. Some folks use their trailer brakes to ‘pull’ the rig straight. The most important thing is to identify a sway problem immediately, and deal with it immediately, before it gets too difficult to control.

Relax

Crosswinds and buffet from trucks can upset the balance of your rig, and in some cases generate what is known as trailer sway.

Remember, you’re not in a race, so don’t get all het up if a vehicle ahead of you is holding you up. Enjoy the drive and when you do get an opportunity to overtake, do so safely.

Heavy crosswinds are always going to be an issue for caravanners. Notorious high wind areas are signposted and noted on the various main roads websites. Be aware of

The object of the exercise is to arrive safely at your chosen location, and enjoy yourself when you get there. Don’t let frustration and road rage detract from your day. //

where to

camp ? it’s usually a friendly local at the pub who will put you onto them. Most have few or no amenities, and the future of these camps depends upon everyone who camps there doing the right thing. Leave no litter, be self-sufficient, don’t damage the vegetation and don’t run a generator all night. Provided everybody obeys the basic rules for camp etiquette, these camps will remain for travellers to enjoy well into the future.

There are numerous stopover and camping options available to RV tourers and campers on the road in Australia. Their quality, level of amenities and accessibility will vary, depending on locality. Caravan parks

N

ational parks generally provide basic campsites within their territory. These are usually aimed at those folks camping ‘light’, though some cater for selfcontained and self-sufficient RV camping. Many provide pit toilets and BBQs with firewood. Fees do apply, and vary depending on the state, so check the national parks websites for information on individual parks.

Roadside camps Roadside stopover sites are located along most major highways in Australia. They are designed as a stopover, rather than a longer term camp, with a stay limit of usually 24 hours. Many of these highway stopovers are very tidy, with decent toilets and water available. The various State main roads websites will list where these points are located.

Bush camps A good bush camp can be a real pleasure. There are quite a few around Australia, and

66

Go Caravan and Camping Guide

Caravan parks are perfect for either ‘one night stands’ or long term stays, depending on your preference. The level of amenities will vary from park to park, but even the most basic will, or should, have clean toilets and showers in an amenities block.

so on. Just remember, the more amenities you have in a van park, the higher the site costs are likely to be.

Other factors To book or not to book The time of year you travel, and the popularity of your destination, will determine if you need to book ahead. Those who enjoy the freedom of the road and just tend to wander along in their own time might find they have trouble finding a site at school holiday times or in more tropical areas where the southern nomads gather in winter.

Caravan parks are not all the same. Some are just a cut above bush camps, while others are full-on resorts. The main caravan park chains are all usually well run, very tidy and are at the upper level in standard. Some people prefer all the whistles and bells, others a more quiet, bushland setting.

Pet-friendly If you are travelling with pets, it’s almost essential to check each stopover before you go, to ensure your chosen van park is petfriendly. Again, this is where websites come in. Most caravan and tourist parks that accept pets are happy as long as the dog is friendly and kept under control at all times. Some parks even have horse accommodation. Pets are not, however, allowed in national parks.

Van park prices vary right around the country. Influencing factors are the level of amenities, location and season. Most van parks have websites from which you can make your choice. If you are touring with a self-contained RV, a stopover in a van park with a dump point will be helpful. Similarly, if you have kids aboard, a park with a pool, play area and internet access will help. Some parks are genuine resorts, with gym, sauna, shop and

Site size Not all caravan park sites are equal. Many in older parks are designed to accommodate fairly small vans and motorhomes, and the bigger rigs – particularly the fifth wheelers and bus-sized motorhomes – just won’t fit. Another issue with big rigs is turning them around in parks with narrow internal roads. Operators of the larger rigs should also check parks for big, overhanging trees. //

DESTINATION | VICTORIA

VICTORIA Travellers will always find something different just around the corner in Victoria. The state is steeped in history, filled with fascinating stories and relics of the gold rush, and blessed with the widest variety of scenic environments in Australia. The coastlines are littered with sparkling beaches and rugged cliffs, yet not far away is the vast white bulk of the Snowy Mountains and the immense forests of the High Country. To the north west the traveller can find desert country and to the north the vast plains of the Murray River region.
