4WDing & Camping

Enjoy a bit of Four Wheel Driving, nothing too adventurous & tend to “Tread Lightly” as to not damage the environment to much. I have my Nissan Patrol set up to do most of the things that I write about on this blog.

A Roof Top Camper for shelter, most of my photography gear is always in the vehicle along with my portable radio equipment used for VKFF & WWFF activities. Mostly travel solo, but it`s great to get out with a few friends when I can.

Got to love a mountain top campsite!

Other items include a 60 litre Fridge/Freezer & a Netbook running OziExplorer for GPS navigation, a 80 watt Solar Panel & a fold up table & chair. Pretty simple setup, leaving more time to enjoy the surroundings.

Always have a couple of fishing rods & tackle handy as well. If staying at a location for a week or more I take an 8 person tent for a bit more room.

Enjoy finding those off the beaten track locations away from the crowds, not an easy thing to do these days with most camping sites publisised on the internet on sites like findacamp.com.au , a website that I have been using lately.

Camping at Maxwell`s Flat in Doyle’s State Forest, NSW

Have spent the last few years travelling around most of Australia, really enjoyed the desserts in outback New South Wales, South Australia & Queensland, the east coast of Australia, but the area I enjoy most is only several hours drive from home.

The Great Dividing Range from just north of Newcastle to the Queensland border has some of the most amazing scenery in Australia, high mountain ranges to deep gorges, world heritage listed Rainforests, spectacular waterfalls, mountain streams, wild rivers, diverse plants & wildlife.

Gloucester Tops National Park

One of the closest 4wding & camping sites to home is the little known Barraba Track to the summit of the extinct volcano of Mt Kaputar in Mt Kaputar National Park

The views over the western plains of NSW from the summit are amazing. A 360 degree view 1000 meters above the surrounding plains. 10 percent of New South Wales can be seen from the lookout.
