I’m getting the camping/off road bug biting again so thought I’d start this thread to get some stories, recommendations, tips, etc.
I haven’t been able to get out for a few years but have spent many nights under the stars in the Grampians. I used to live and work in Halls Gap for a few years so used to spend many hours driving through the park and surrounds.
Since moving to Qld I have enjoyed some beach trips and apart from sand everywhere, they’ve been great.
Anyway, fire away…always happy for camp oven recipes too!!
Love camping, but not in caravan parks or such like. Love finding out of the way places, preferably near a river. Have a few hidey-holes I visit. Mates and I go on a big one annually. Everyone gets hammered. Saw a UFO about the size of a pea while I was face-down in a muddy track last year. And I wasn’t the only one. Also - trapped a fox on a dare. Set it free.
Wife and I have talked about doing the same but she has had both back and hip surgery in the recent past so might have to do the caravan thing purely for comfort. Got a big tent and a swag for boys trips or taking the kids out
Own a GU patrol, lifted, muddies, rear draws, rooftop tent, lightforce spotties, uhf, hot water system, canvas seat covers blah blah the list goes on. Love to sit around a fire with mates, beers, camp cook ups and what not. It’s good for the soul!
Over here is awesome for exploring. The NW of wa has some of the most remarkable things you’ll ever see
My dream is to travel from here (Brisbane) up and across the top and down to Perth. One day.
I spent a little bit of time in the Territory years ago and I love the landscape. Northern WA appeals massively.
Kids and a wife change the dynamics. I used to take a swag, an esky and a camp oven basically. Now my hilux needs an extension almost.
