What a great forum. I stumbled across you guys while looking for a suitable campsite for myself and my two kids to go camping. I have been camping and 4 wheel driving for a LONG time, but always camped with a 4 wheel drive. Foolishly, I sold the 4x4 last year during a busy time at work, with no time for camping. Now not only has work calmed down, but I miss camping.... a lot!
So, given the restrictions on how much gear we can pack into a Mazda 3, we are looking for a camp ground with a shower block, that also allows for fires. We live in Melbourne, about 25 minutes from the CBD. Happy to drive 3-4 hours if it's worth it.
Also, since it's now just me and the kids, I'm looking to invest in a tent that's big enough for the three of us, with room to spare (13 year old girls LOVE to overpack) that is also easy enough for one capable ( short ) woman to put up. Any tips, advice or camp talk in general is welcomed.
