The blog is to encourage others to get out there and see their own backyard. Even if its day trips, weekends, holidays or full time travel we do it all. We love to share our travel experiences, thoughts and costs.
Planning our Wedding in March 2019 then taking off immediately after to Road Trip and Work Australia.
We love our “Sunday Drives” they can take us to unlikely places that we would not normally visit, its on these road trips we can uncover a popular tourist destination, a picturesque landscape or an ideal camping spot. As we lived in Geraldton for almost 2 years in 2016 our drives can take us past a location that we may have driven past numerous times but have failed to stop and explore. From now on, when ever we are out on the road were possible we pull up to have a look around. Fig Tree Crossing Picnic and Camping area in Western Australia is an ideal spot to camp if you want to be a short distance out of town but have the bush lifestyle at your feet.
The camping ground, is a large drive through rest area, It’s a beautifully presented campground and whilst there is no lush lawns the scenery of the Chapman Valley in the distance makes it pleasant camp spot. The camp ground has many tall trees that provides ample shade to pull up for short stay.
To reach Fig Tree Crossing Picnic and Camping area, from Geraldton you will need drive along Chapman Valley Road for approx. 12 kilometres and you will find the rest area on your left. The ground is restricted to a 24 hour stay and fees apply ($7 per night. ) The low cost camp ground offers shaded seating areas, BBQ, Toilets, Dump Point and your still in range on your mobile phone.
