I’m joining Becky in her July Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules of the challenge are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word tree. Look for #treesquare. Come with me on a Central Queensland road trip starring trees and the beautiful landscapes of my home state.
Free Camping, Pioneer Valley
On a private property in the picturesque Pioneer Valley there’s a secret camping spot known only to a lucky few. At the end of an unsealed country road halfway between Mirani and Eton we join some friends and set up camp.
With their wide spreading canopies, rain trees provide welcome shade which we’re happy to share with the neighbours.
It’s the perfect location to stay a while, enjoying the serenity from sunrise…
SquareUp Photo Challenge: Camping at Carnarvon Gorge, October 2020 #1
When, after months of restrictions and stay at home orders, our state Government announced that Queensland was “good to go” we packed up our caravan and headed off on a road trip, up north to Carnarvon Gorge National Park. We broke up the 600 km journey by free camping on the first night at Judds Lagoon, near Yuleba.
In January I’m joining in with Becky’s Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word up. Look for #SquareUp
Western Queensland Road Trip Square Tops Challenge #27
When restrictions in Queensland are lifted and travel within our state is allowed, we’ll be on the road again. We have a new caravan we only got to use for two nights before everything closed down and there’s a long list of places we want to visit. Our first destination will be this top spot.
This free camp on the banks of the Moonie River at Nindigully will be perfect for trying out the off grid features of our van – solar panels, extra water tanks and, most important of all, an ensuite bathroom. I’m looking forward to sitting out under the awning with my morning coffee, enjoying the birds and the bougainvillea.
We might try some water sports, go for a gentle bush walk or just sit quietly by the river.
