We decided to start out our first full day on K’Gari (Fraser Island) with a visit to Rainbow Gorge and the Kirrar Sandblow. The gorge wasn’t very rainbowy – Red Canyon or The Pinnacles would be a much better choice if you’re after seeing coloured sand – but the sandblow itself was magnificent. I’m so… Continue reading Fraser Island: Kinnar Sandblow
We arrived on the island around 11am, and since we had a few hours to fill in before we could arrive at our accommodation, we decided to do an inland track from Dilli Village, through the southern lakes, then out to Eurong where we were staying. Our first stop was Lake Boomajin, the largest perched… Continue reading Fraser Island: Lake Boomajin
We went camping to Neurum Creek Bush Retreat again. One of my cousins had asked just before our last trip if we wanted to go for a weekend in August, and since we could only stay for one night last time, we decided to go back – and this time, to try for three nights.… Continue reading Neurum Creek camping (again!)
Recently we got a book out from the library called “Perfect” by Danny Parker. It’s all about the simple things that make up a perfect day. The one that I liked was “some shoes and some places to walk to”.
We’ve been trying to evaluate recently what makes a good place for us to get away to – after every camping trip we ask what made this a good trip? What would have made it better?

I’d heard a lot about it from friends and family who had been camping there before and was really looking forward to seeing it. I… Continue reading Neurum Creek Bush Retreat
I always like to google camping spots before we go to see what they’ll be like, and blog reviews are the best of all, so here is my contribution. (As an example, The Fealy Family had a good post on Flanagan Reserve) Flanagan Reserve is just over an hour and a half from Brisbane, although it… Continue reading Flanagan Reserve camping
We celebrated our first school holidays by taking some time out to go to Somerset Dam. We decided in stay in a house rather than camp, mostly to make it easier to take the boat. We arrived at the house, unpacked, the children marvelled at the number of toilets, and then we decided to go… Continue reading Somerset Dam in April
