Bestest Camp Spot Ever

We headed out over a recent long weekend to the bestest camp spot with our new camper



Not only is it less the 30 minutes to a small country town it is extremely hard to find plus less than a five minute drive for good mobile reception (optus)





We could camp close enough to the river to get an endless supply of water for the hot water system to supply the shower.

Freshly chopped up firewood was left by the previous campers



We had a choice of sitting under small waterfalls sitting in shallow pools or swimming in several deep water holes




The view up one of the rivers


The view down the other looking out on the swimming hole


\
Even the insects were pretty




Some of the natives weren't so friendly but we didn't bother them and they didn't bother us



We did a day drive to a famous Hut

Part Two
Found a couple of old huts


With an old Bus




Check out the wood paneling


Very complex dash


Loved this dead tree







Another potential camping spot for the future

Thanks for taking the time to read this report

Nice post, and awesome pics!

My first though- wonder if there are any trout in that little river?

Plenty of Rainbow Trout there with two deep holes and plenty of large splashes of fish eating the insects at dusk and dawn
I dont fish myself but friend have certainly been successful out of that spot

Even if this wasn't in Australia, I would tell people it is so we could keep it to ourselves...quite the little slice of heaven you have there! Thanks for sharing.

Those are some very nice pics. Great spot for sure! Gotta find a spot like that here to take my daughter camping for her first time!! She'd love it. Doubt she'd care too much for those snakes though. Those were a good size!
