Cobblers Pool and our Companion Solar Blanket
At the beginning of the month, Perth and it’s surrounding areas copped a battering with thunderstorms. Records were smashed, within 24 hours we received the average rainfall for the whole month of March! With so much water around, we decided to take advantage of the situation and explore the Avon River. We also wanted to do a test run of our new Bushman Fridge and Companion 200W Solar Blanket before we embark on our Aussie Road Trip.Read More »

Camping at Potters Gorge and Honeymoon Pool
Potters Gorge has had a bit of a bush makeover (if there is such a thing) since the last time we were there. It has been upgraded to have nice large campsites, paths, shelters, BBQs and a mountain bike pump track.
The name Potters Gorge is a little misleading as there is no gorge in the area. The campground is actually situated along the banks of Wellington Dam. Read More »
Review: RAC Margaret River Nature Park
For the longest time, I have been wanting to camp at RAC Margaret River Nature Park (formerly Wharncliffe Mill Bush Retreat). I had heard nothing but rave reviews on the property so I decided to check it out for myself. Would it live up to my expectations?Read More »
Camping at Lake Navarino (Waroona Dam)
I stumbled across Lake Navarino on Instagram some time ago. I love finding new places to explore and that is why I have an Instagram obsession. So when some friends asked me if I wanted to spend a weekend at Lake Navarino Holiday Park I didn’t hesitate to say yes. That and the fact it has been almost 3 months since we have been camping. Hard to believe I know!Read More »
Bald Hill Campground, Avon Valley, WA
A blank page in the diary for the weekend was staring at me! Do we stay home and get some chores done or go camping? Before you know it we were getting ready to spend a night in the bush.
“One night pack light” says Dixie. Is that even possible when you have children? I tried my best to just take the essential items.Read More »
Milligan Island Camping Ground
The car and camper trailer was packed and we were ready to set off for the Easter long weekend. The only problem was we had no booking and no where to go. We hoped to get a site at Sandy Cape Recreational Park which is a first in first severed basis campground. It seems that everyone else had the same plan and the place was full to the brim.
What were we to do? Where will we stay? Suddenly I remembered a camp ground we had seen on one of our previous adventures. We headed a little further up the coast to Milligan Island Camping Ground and thankfully we managed to get a site.Read More »
Camping at Lake Brockman Tourist Park
People often tell me that they are envious of our adventures. We try and get away every six weeks and they are usually short camping trips. I decided to put the call out to all my friends and let them know that we were camping at Lake Brockman. Anyone was welcome to join us and to my surprise we had 11 families take up the offer. It was a wonderful getaway for everyone and most of all I loved seeing the children enjoying nature.Read More »
