Car camping at our secret location – We take the kitchen sink, and more.

We have a “secret” National Park camping ground we escape to each summer for a week or two “bush” camping.
As you can see from the pictures below this is NOT lightweight camping and we take everything including the kitchen sink, dish rack and a full cutlery and crockery set.

It is camping on a grand scale.

Frank has just returned and thought he would share a few pictures of this great holiday spot that is near the Great Ocean Walk in southern Victoria, Australia.

Sorry about the quality of the images, we left our camera at home and had to use an iPhone!

We have been camping here on and off for over 30 years and have just got the knack of how to catch crayfish. They were great to eat with a few champagnes (didn’t we tell you we take TWO gas fridges?)

Koalas are very common at our secret camping spot. The one pictured above is last year’s baby. We regularly saw Mum with this year’s baby on her back in the trees, or wandering along the ground looking for a better tree.

Not that having a drink at the end of the day is a high priority …..BUT we do like to catch up with our group and enjoy some nibbles and champagne. One evening we were able to put together a great Cosmopolitan.

Why is the campsite secret you may ask? Because it is getting too popular and under threat of losing its uniqueness and isolation. Next thing they will have powered sites, flushing dunnies and rubbish collection and we DON”T want that…

    Hmmm….I wonder where that secret camping spot is…..!
    Loving the camping setup. I think you are bordering on “glamping” – glamourous camping!
    And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with cosmos at five – especially when camping.

    I really need to find a place like this for camping.
    Its really hard to find anywhere secluded, or completely isolated from everything, when you want to be able to go fishing aswell!
    Guess i have to keep searching high and low.
    Loved your camping setup aswell!
    😀

      Thanks Barry,
      Yes, places like this are getting much harder to find AND harder to get into in busy periods.
      We are off there again this year in january. Can’t wait!

      Frank
