TOP 5 CAMPING SPOTS AROUND ADELAIDE AND SA
- Aroona Valley, Flinders Rangers: it is an amazing sight to wake up on a cold frosty morning and see all the spider webs spun out through the trees.
- Arkaroola Village, Flinders: a brilliant place to visit. Kangaroos on the side of the road as you drive into the village. The Ridgetop Tour is breathtaking, tasting the local produce on the drive (bush bananas).
- Innamincka: camping on the Cooper Creek, it is beautiful and the bird life is amazing.
- Dalhousie Springs: the springs are a breath of relief at the end of a long drive – they are warm and so relaxing. The eerie howl of dingos at night in the distance.
- Farina: a very nice quiet place to stay off the beaten track.
STAPLES THAT EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE FOR THEIR NEXT CAMPING TRIP
Coffee /Tea: this is a must.
Bread: especially traveling with kids. Sandwiches, toast etc.
- Oranges: refreshing and helps with the hunger and thirst.
- Matches: for the fire.
- Food: is a must or you will be very unhappy.
TOP TIPS FOR CAMPING/GLAMPING
- A very comfortable sleeping mat or swag.
- Vango 5cm mat: extra thick for comfort but still packs down small to not take up lots of storage space.
- A warm sleeping bag: One Planet SAC -5 for the kids, Bungle -4/-7 for mum and dad.
- Always layer clothing: Icebreaker thermals or Wilderness Wear Polypro.
- Very comfortable and sturdy shoes (this includes the socks): Wilderness Wear Merino Fleece socks are extremely good for cold nights with 83% wool content when camping, as they are an Australian brand with Tasmanian wool.
- Make sure you have awesome chair for lazing around: Wildtrak Yardie Cooler Arm Chair.
