have you been to fraser island yet?

you can do independent camping there (i think), or arrange treks etc through agents or guesthouses on the mainland at hervey bay.

this was my favourite place in australia, and i can go misty eyed and wax lyrical for ages on its beauty...

Have heard good things about the ol'fraser.

Didn't get to camp much in Oz, but I enjoyed the types of folks on the Great Ocean Walk - mostly locals out for the weekend. There are lots of untouristed places in the blue mountains - just don't get lost! I think the gramps would be nice once the vegetation grows back again. Pretty good hiking there.

I hear the west coast is pretty amazing - anyone gone there for camping/beaching/beachcamping?

Never been to Fraser Island either, but have often heard good reports.

One great camping trip we did years ago. Walking in the Border Ranges (on the NSW/Qld border). Really nice. Up in the hills and plenty of jungle and green. Almost no one else around.

Highlights were sitting on a cliff watching some eagles rise up from below us on a thermal and meeting an 90 something year old WW1 lighthorse man who lived by himself on a farm in the middle of not much.

I had a good walk in the Grampians NP also, and found the Blue Mountains a great escape when I was posted to Sydney.

Hmmm, there are 100s of places. Camping in Australia actually makes the place live-able and enjoyable.

Kakadu National Park (just next to Darwin - well, sort of, it's 400km away!) comes recommended. Beautiful wilderness with a few simple campsites. Grab a swag and go hyper.gif
