Farina and Coward Springs (for the birdlife and an outdoor spa), Simpson Desert for beauty, Darling River banks for quietness and beside a mountain stream for solitude. Generally speaking though, I really think anywhere in the outdoors is great.

Itchyant-senior, I totally agree, both Farina Ruins and Coward Springs are great and what about Montecolina Bore on the Strzlecki and the Painted Desert south of Oodnadatta.

Sometimes you just have to make it happen rather than looking for an opportunity to present itself Karen.

Yep, I remember the days when you could go anytime of the year for as long as you needed (thats if you had enought annual leave). Now we pretty much limited to three times a year and for a max of 2 weeks because of school holidays.

Hey, there is always retirement! Only 19 years to go.:grin:

So no-one has yet mentioned Kangaroo Island.

Great beaches, fishing, scenery, wildlife, solitude.

And one time I will rent the lighthouse keepers cottage at Cape de Couedic and spend a week in winter with no one else around.

Flinders Rangers, Andamooka, Uluru, Olgas, Alice springs, Kings Canyon, Broome,Bundaberg to name a few. Rainbow Beach QLD would be the best relaxing (and quiet) spot I have ever visited.

I reckon Rainbow Beach would have to be the 4WD capital of Aust at holiday time.

We lived in Rockhampton for a while and loved camping at Stoney Creek near Yepoon. We spent a memorable night watching an amazing lightning storm happening over rocky while we sat high and dry in our camp,the colours of the lightning were amazing pinkks and blues ,it was pretty special. Another magical place was Blackdown Tablelands near Dingo,there is an amazing waterfall at Rainbow falls and while we were there there was an eel living in the pool that some guys were feeding beer. The fall is like something from a norsca ad you can stand right under it.
In NSW we have had great camps at the bridle track at hill end. One night we built a huge fire and laid blankets on the ground and watched the stars....they look so much better out there. Made lots of wishes because we saw so many shooting stars. We panned for and found actual gold(not much)which we kept in a camera film canister only to have it drunk by our 2yr old who thought it was a nice drink!
One of our most memorable trips was to Townsville My hubby was at uni at the time an had 3 months off so we set off from rocky for an extended trip hoping to make it to Cairns. That was the year of cyclone joy and we were in the midst of it. Trying to put a tent down in torrential rain and wind and telling my husband one day we will laugh about this....he was not impressed at the time. Everything we owned got wet and we had to decamp to an SES hostel till the cylone passed through.
Only once it did we couldn't go home as Rocky was cut off by Floods for 2 weeks. We made it as far as Mission Beach which is a beautiful place,camped in a lovely caravan park at South Mission Beach and shared the camp with cassowarys. The noise at night from the frog population was almost deafening.
Camping makes great memories!!!
