Do you want to set off on a solo adventure, but something is holding you back? Unfortunately, a phenomenon we like to call “Wolf Creek Paranoia” has deterred people from solo camping trips. Here at Campstay, we’re going to bring you back to reality and show you just how great camping on your own can be!
Travelling and camping with your pet can make the entire trip more fun and memorable. Sure, you need to be well prepared and ensure your pets are physically fit for travel, but having them along as you explore the beauty of the outdoors is worth the extra work, in our opinion. Besides, can you really leave your furbabies behind for several days at a time?
Don’t try to deny it– we’ve all been on a camping trip and realised we’ve forgotten something kind of important… like that time we forgot our sleeping bags. It sure does put a damper on the trip when you’re under-prepared!
The best thing about going on a road trip or camping holiday in Australia is there’s always something to do and places to go regardless of the time of year you’re travelling. That’s right – all year is peak travel season in the land down under, and we love it! Just get the gang together, pile them in the car and drive somewhere fun. Trust us, you wouldn’t have to go far.
So it’s the third week of July, everyone has the winter blues, and the weather is nothing short of freezing. At this point of the year, some people are sitting at home and complaining about how cold it is while scrolling through #tbt summertime pics on Instagram. But not you. You’re one of the lucky ones that have snagged a ticket to three whole days of dancing in the mud at the best festival of the year. That’s right, ladies and gents. Splendour in the Grass has rolled around once again.
Luckily, you’ve stumbled on our guide to survive Splendour in the Grass! You’re totally prepared for what is to come.
We’ve all been on a camping trip where sausages in bread are the main meal for the ENTIRE trip. I mean, sausages in bread are okay…but does anyone actually want them for dinner every day? I don’t think so. Finding good camping meals for picky eaters is a genuine challenge.
Welcome to Campstay’s ultimate glamping guide for Australian campers! Have you ever wondered if your glamping game is strong enough? Is your camp mattress soft and pillowy? Do you have enough camping gadgets? Have you perfected your tent’s temperature and ventilation?
Hang on a minute… are you still staying in a tent?
One of the best things about camping is the road trip. For those of us who love off-road adventures, it’s all about the 4WD tracks that test your skills and your confidence. It’s the mud splatters on the windows, the wheels kicking up dust, and the way your stomach drops when you just barely make it down a hill in one piece.
If you love to go camping, having your children and pets with you will make your holiday more fun and memorable. Your kids can breathe fresh air, play amidst lush greenery, appreciate the beauty of nature and learn to respect wildlife. Taking the pets on your camping trip allows them to experience and explore surroundings outside your home. Besides, it’s very difficult to leave your furbabies behind, especially when your actual babies (your kids) insist they come along. So don’t fight the inevitable – bring the whole gang camping!

As per the Coastal Studies Unit at University of Sydney, Australia has a total of 10,685 beaches. This number was based on the definition that for a stretch of sand to be categorized as a “beach”, said stretch of sand must be more than 20 metres long and remain dry during high tides.
