Free Camp Friday – Tell Us Where To Go!


It’s becoming clear that we have NFI where we are headed in the near future. So we’re asking for your help!

We are pit stopping near Rockhampton this weekend to shop, shower, do washing and all that exciting stuff.

Then we head towards Gladstone for a couple of days at Calliope.

From there, we’ll spend a couple of weeks at Agnes Water/1770 before stopping in Hervey Bay for a couple of days to show Mackenzie where she was born.

In the words of that seminal classic “Dude, Where’s My Car?”

And then……

We don’t know where to go!

We probably should start heading inland from Hervey Bay, but then we miss the Sunny Coast. Which will probably be busy (and exxy) by then anyway.

Most likely we will start heading towards Toowoomba and then meet up with the New England Highway. Or maybe the Newell. We want to take the kids to Forbes to show the kids where Nan grew up and Matt spent his holidays, but we’re a mighty long way away from there yet.

So – tell us where to go. Know any great spots we should visit? Obviously we’re interested in cheaper options, and we love to support van parks who don’t charge us exorbitantly for the kids. Dog and camper trailer friendly are our only other requirements.

It’s travelling Choose Your Own Adventure style!

  1. In August when we left Hervey Bay we went to Boondooma dam ( nice & friendly) and then stayed with a friend at Proston. From there towards Kingaroy you have the Bunya mountains. We also stopped at a free site at Westmar near St George with good clean loos, next to the highway. Then down to Lightning ridge for a couple of days & the bore baths. From there we stayed at Willie retreat in The Macquarie marshes. A beautiful old property with heaps of wildlife ( $26 per night for a powered site, no dogs unfortunately) There’s plenty of great options, hope you enjoy.

  2. Wivenhoe is nice. I think we pay per pitch (huge) and there is a toilet block and showers and firewood on sale. Also Crows Nest National Park up the road – not sure if dogs ok there. Further north there’s another Nat Park near Gympie we quite liked
