One of our Free Range Camping members recently met up with Murry Rhodes in their travels. After hearing about Murry, it prompted me to get in touch with him to find out more about his story. Turns out Murry is a bit of a character from the outback and a fellow traveller with a story […]
On a warm afternoon in October this year, we were walking past a few of the other campers at our campsite at Cowra when the kids couldn’t resist being attracted to a cute dog in one of the vans, on closer inspection we saw it was, in fact, three small dogs and a cockatoo. One […]
Joy and her husband Kim hail from Mt Barker in South Australia, and as it turns out Joy was the winner of last month’s prize of the Quokka Fire pit. When I called Joy to tell her of her win, we got chatting and I found out more about her, so much so that I […]
On a recent trip to Gympie, home of the Gympie Muster, some friends introduced me to a couple of avid gallivanting nomads. As avid nomads ourselves, we soon got chatting about our travels. Peter and Dawn love their caravan so much, that they actually live it in, on their property, even when there are not […]

Its Pineapple Festival time in Yeppoon QLD, so we are back in one our favourite spots at the Poinciana Tourist Park right near the beach. As I pulled up to our allocated camp spot, we discover our neighbours are Trish and Dave, whom we met very briefly last time we were in town five weeks […]

Linda with her travelling companions Mark & Dakar Their vehicles of choice were a Toyota 4×4 […]
I am an ex-Kiwi farmer who has been travelling around Australia with my caravan for 4 years visiting my children and exploring this huge country. I plucked up the courage to free camp after about 6 months and have found some wonderful peaceful places to stop. I had almost become a hermit sometimes not talking […]
Our visit to Mallina Station to see our beautiful travelling friends Rob and Kris Cutts; and of course the cutest little dog ever… Rhino Sausages. This place has so much history; and that good old outback station ambience.
We left our caravan in Broome WA, and headed up to Cape Leveque. Middle Lagoon was our first stop. $40/night but so worth it! It was a little windy while we were there, so we didn’t get a chance to get out in the boat; but still enjoyed the serenity of the beautiful secluded beach.
