Hi Everyone, I just want to say hi and thanks for having me here.

I only started camping a few years ago, but I went from the kiddy-pool to the deep-end pretty much overnight. I spent 1 night camped out with mates in a plush, serviced campground (Coolendel) then I jumped straight into a 20+ night self-drive tour of The Kimberley region in my 4WD with my wife (also an inexperienced camper). By the end of it, we were both seasoned car-campers. I learnt so much on that epic trip, and now I've just discovered the world of hike-in/hike-out "bushcrafty" camping and I'm Here to learn more.

Here's some pics from my first hike-in/hike-out camp trip to Kanagra-Boyd National Park recently, where I learnt that tarps don't do so well pitched on rock, attached to fire-ravaged trees, on top of mountains, when gale force winds start roaring at 4am. Mother Nature is a good teacher like that... But it was so worth it 😁

Welcome to the forum Craig.

Great pics from Kanagra Walls. You did a good job getting the tarp taut up there.

Lots of happy memories of that National Park :)
