Hi. We are new to this site. i have been visiting here for awhile and have decided I should participate. We have been camping for a few years now but with retirement only a couple of years off we are gearing up to do a lot more as time goes on. We bought ourselves a Lifestyle campertrailer early last year and had some time in the Goulburn River NP forllowed by the Warrumbungles. We are not into caravan parks but prefer NPs and State forest areas.
In Sept we are planning a few nights at Coolah Tops followed by 1 night in a motel and then a few more nights at Dunns swamp.
Would like to hear on Coolah Tops as there are 3 sites listed. I prefer winter camping but SWMBO prefers autumn and spring. Say no more.

Hi Beagle,

Very nice choice on the CT is it a 360? I also own a 360, and love it, how are you finding yours? Did i notice a little solar panel there as well? what sort of a setup do you run there for solar?

Hi Beagle and WELCOME to the forum. Lots of greatinfo and chat to be found on this forum with members happy to share their ideas etc with you.

We would also love to hear of your adventures and see your pics too which I see you have already done, thank you.

I agree, I am not into CPs either but love campgrounds and bush camping. As I have a canine family I don't do NPs but aim for pretty much the same type of venues that are 'pet friendly'.

Am a camping fanatic so will camp at any opportune time during the year. Love winter camping too which you will see if you read the report I wrote on my recent camping trip to Stanthorpe.

Cheers Gypsy

The CT is a Lifestyle Explorer plus with a 12 foot tent pluse full annexe. The solar panel is just a 20 watt unit which I find is suffient to keep the 100 amphr battery going for many days with just a 60 litre Bushman frig and a little bit of 12v rechargable lighting

I have been camping in a pretty serious way for about 20 years wragee and I reckon there is still heaps for me to learn. Camping is a real passion for me.
