Our Favourite Experiences as we Travel Australia

The most common question we are asked is – what is your Favourite place you have been? Everyone wants to know what our Best experiences have been as we travel Australia.

It’s like being asked which one is your favourite child isn’t it? Actually, nominating a favourite child would be easier!!

Answering the question is difficult because different places have different features that make it so awesome. How can you really compare the Whitsundays to Karijini or Margaret River to Kakadu, you just can’t, they are totally unique to themselves.

Then there’s the other factors that come into it. The weather can significantly make a difference on your experience as can who you are with. Sometimes travelling with others greatly enhances an experience.

I still haven’t found the perfect answer to the question, if I name just one place it’s trivialising our other favourite places, yet if I try to name more than one I hope they brought a blanket and pillow because it’s going to take awhile.

We have however put together a few of our favourites. It was impossible to name just one in some categories and so many great memories of places and experiences have been left off the list.

Caravan Parks

Daly Waters Pub Caravan park, Daly Waters NT

The Daly Waters Caravan Park is located at the famous Daly Waters Pub in the Northern Territory.

It is close to the highway and approx halfway from the Three Ways to Darwin.

There is a pool at the caravan park which is very handy on those hot outback days. Whilst there, try their great Barra Burgers.

The park is pet friendly.

I had reasonable Telstra coverage.

Cost to stay is $32 for a powered site or $20 for unpowered.

We didn’t stay but visited on 16th July 2016 and 25th May 2017 when this video was taken.
