Australia’s best camping spots – Part 3

Part 3, and the final instalment, in my favourite camping places. And none of these are in Queensland.

Life’s always an adventure with Doc, and even a simple trip to the farm isn’t exempt. It’s a long weekend, so of course it’s the perfect opportunity for a trip to the farm, with all the boys.
