I have been camping quite a few times this year and only picked up 2 ticks myself, my girl has not picked up any. Canungra has always been an area renowned for ticks. I camped at Sharp Park last year and a friend's dog got 5 ticks.
I personally use Advantix and I am diligent as to where she goes and where we camp. Never by the creek or near bush or long grass. I won't even walk her by the creek for that very reason.
The only place I have never not gone because of ticks was Glendon but that was probably only one of the reasons for not going back there.
