Gone campin'

Tomorrow I'm going camping! It's a rarity that I use exclamation marks in the same sentence as camping except perhaps to say - I don't want to go camping! But this time I'm genuinely excited because I'm camping overnight on Cockatoo Island in the middle of Sydney Harbour.

My mumma bought a camping gift voucher for me at Christmas. It includes your tent, bed and chairs so it's minimal fuss, which is great for someone like me who has is more likely to lose an eye than successfully pitch a tent. And guess what? There is a cafe as well, so no potato salad in a can for this girl!

I can't wait to explore the island (which actually used to be a convict gaol/jail) and enjoy time with some of my very favourite people. Oh and enjoy this gorgeous view


  1. I'm supposed to be camping there in November - so I'm hoping you're having an amazing time!!

  2. That sounds like awesome fun! How was it? (And how much, if you don't mind me asking?)

  3. I explored the island during the day a few months ago. It's really quite wonderful. Would be great to stay there over night.

  4. it was heaps of fun! unfortunately it started to pour and then continued to rain all night, but it was a great night all the same. the facilities there are AMAZING - bathrooms, showers, kitchens are all good.
    And I didn't get to check out as much as the island as I wanted, so a day trip is on the agenda.
