The North East

This region is very special to us. Part of our family originates from the mining times of Derby and Ringarooma, and we have spent many summers in the far northeast tip, camping, swimming and simply enjoying the beach life.

If camping is your choice for family getaways, then this region will not disappoint. There are many spots to set up a campervan or tent on the banks of a river, deep within the rainforest. There are equally as many spots right alongside the beaches; perfect spots for a BBQ, an evening wine or beer, while the kids play on the sand as you watch the sunset.

Another great feature of the North East is the produce. Steak, cheese, seafood, vegetables and fruit, just to name a few. A lot of these places are open to the public, so if your family is self-catering as you travel, this region is great for stocking up in. We particularly love Pyeghana Dairy. YUM!
