Camp Grounds

Midskinrick Lodge & Camping, Rosedale Queensland

Midskinrick Lodge & Camping

Midskinrick Lodge & Camping is situated 1 hour north of Bundaberg and an hour south of Agnes Water/ 1770 in Queensland.

This fabulous Campground is located directly backing on to Baffle Creek.

Midskinrick Lodge & Camping, Baffle Creek

The Campground owners Doug & Di are fantastic as well as Bill who works there, they will certainly look after you.

There are 2 campgrounds at Midskinrick Lodge, the one beside Baffle Creek is set on 10 acres so there’s plenty of space and fire pits on each site. In this camping area all the sites are unpowered.

2 Toilets are available to this part of the campground. Generators are permitted between 8am and 8pm.

5 Essentials – Camping Accessories

A good Tent or Swag is the first decision for going camping. We like the Coleman Tent from Tentworld or the Wanderer 7 Man Tent from BCF. For a Swag, we were so close to buying the Kings Double Swag from 4WD Supacentre.

We like our BCF Wanderers Camping Chair which gets a lot of use as we travel Australia.

No more lugging around a huge BBQ and gas bottle now that we have a brilliant Gasmate Dual Burner Butane Cooktop from Tentworld

A good Portable Fridge Freezer we have found to keep the beers cold and steaks frozen are the Kings 70 L Fridge Freezer in the budget range, the Waeco 75L Dual Zone Fridge Freezer or the ever popular and long lasting Engel 75L Fridge Freezer.

A good quality Hand Held UHF is ideal and I like this Uniden UH750 5 watt UHF for long range and quality. The 5 watt range will give you maximum distance, especially if you need help!

Midskinrick Lodge & Campground

Kangaroos roam the area and can be seen most of the day.

The other Camping area is around the Dam. You can swim in the dam and there’s also lots of turtles there.

This camping area provides both powered and unpowered sites. There are toilets available plus for $2 there are hot showers.

Midskinrick Lodge Dam

You may have midges and possibly mosquitos annoy you so do bring your insect repellent.

Baffle Creek Fishing

The fishing is great, especially if you have a boat. If not, you can catch fish by the boat ramp.

Baffle Creek is well known for catching Mangrove Jack, bream are plentiful and Barramundi may also be caught. Mud Crabs are also available along the creek.

Midskinrick Lodge

Midskinrick Lodge & Camping is pet friendly and therefore dogs are allowed.

I had good Telstra coverage but I had no Vodafone access.

The Campground entry is quirky and different and that’s an enjoyable part of it’s appeal. Rusted cars beside the front entrance track, funny signs and a few crazy animals made out of old tyres all add to the charm.

The cost to stay is $7.50 per person per night. Powered sites are available for an extra $5 per night or if you use your air conditioning it’s an extra $10 per night.
* Update July 2020 – Cost to stay is $8.50 per person per night.

Our stay was 22-23rd May 2018

How to get there

From Bundaberg we took Rosedale Road north and followed it until the road merges and becomes Lowmead Road. Once we came to Ferry Road we turned right and followed it until we reached Barnetts Rd where we turned right again.

Follow the road to Bottle Creek Rd, turn right again until you come to Newtons Road on the left and follow it until you come to the entrance for the campground.

The last 6-10kms is dirt road but was an easy drive in our Motorhome.

Adventurers Diary

Dalmeny Campground, Dalmeny NSW

Dalmeny

The Dalmeny Campground is perfectly located overlooking spectacular Dalmeny Beach.

Dalmeny is just 5 mins from the beautiful town of Narooma on the south NSW coast. The campground is located on a hilltop of sloping grounds so most sites are not level but they do provide spectacular views.

It is pet friendly and there are toilets, showers, laundry and a dump point available.

There is an IGA and fuel station across the road. There’s also a great Fish and Chips shop.

Fire pits are available for hire along with firewood.

The beach is excellent for swimming, surfing and fishing and you’ll even spot the resident Emu’s that often wander the beach.

We had good Telstra coverage and I also had 1 bar of Vodafone network.

We recommend the Tour to Montague Island called Montague Island Tours with Wazza. It was a great day out, swimming with seals and enjoying the tour of the island.

Cost to stay is $33 per night for 2 adults for powered site. Children 5-16yo are $6 each per night.
* Updated 22/1/2020 Prices vary throughout the year depending on season. Off peak is $29, Shoulder season is $34 and Peak season is $52 a night.

Check the website for more details. https://dalmenycampground.com.au/rates/

Also look for Stay 7 pay 6 nights deal.

Our stay was 22nd February and 28th February to 6th March 2019.

Camp Grounds

Congo Campground, Congo NSW

Congo Campground

Congo Campground is approx. 35kms south of Batemans Bay and just 330kms south of Sydney.

It is a bitumen road in from the north except some small sections of gravel road with minor corrugations. When exiting to the south it is a short drive on a gravel road through the National Park back to the Princess Highway.

The Campground has cold showers, toilet facilities and a basic camp kitchen. This is National Park and no pets and no fires are allowed. Weekends at Congo Campground can get very busy and there is no booking ahead, only turn up and hope a spot is available.

Camping is alongside the river although it is not connected to the ocean beach. The beach is fantastic and great for surfing and fishing. We saw dolphins go past and a guy catch a great feed of squid from a kayak just offshore.

We only stayed the one night but it’s a superb location and a fair price.

Cost to stay is $12 per adult. Children 5-15yo are $6 each per night.

Our stay was 21st February 2019.

Camp Grounds

Honeymoon Bay Campground, Jervis Bay NSW

Honeymoon Bay Campground

Honeymoon Bay Campground is one of our favourite stays in Oz, this is bush camping at its best!

The Honeymoon Bay Campground in the Beecroft Weapons Range at Jervis Bay in NSW is only open on weekends. It is owned by the Royal Australian Navy and has live firing during the week.

The gates open at 1pm and you go through a checkpoint before entering. We arrived about 12.30pm and we were one of the very last in the queue and were there about an hour, so we suggest arriving by midday which is when they begin to take bookings.

Once you arrive, head to the Information Centre and go through the booking process. There is no online booking.

Take cash, there is no Eftpos and payment is by cash only.

All sites are unpowered and there is no drinking water available.

There are portable toilets throughout the campground and bins are also available.

No pets are allowed.

We had coverage with Telstra and Vodafone.

Flying Drones are not allowed in Jervis Bay region by CASA Can I Fly There app however further research suggests it may be possible on weekends but we didn’t use ours.

Cost to stay is $15 per site for 2 adults. Extra adults are $5 each and children 15 and under are free.

Our stay was 8-9th February 2019

Honeymoon Bay – Nearby Points of Interest

The Point Perpendicular Lighthouse is just a short drive away and there are lots of great walks to places like the 5km round trip to Silica Cove Beach which was stunning. Here we came across the rusted wreck of the St Martins De Porres.
