Big 4 Wagga Wagga

This is a new segment of our newsletter where each month we plan on doing an in depth review on a chosen campsite and highlight some of the features of it. It could be a free camp, campground or caravan park. With so many great places to choose from we are going to base our reviews on places we have stayed at ourselves that really stand out, or on places that have been highly recommended by other campers.

We are going to start off with the Big 4 Wagga Wagga mainly because we have been here for a few weeks now which has given us plenty of time to check out the park and see how it operates.   

To read our full story on the Big 4 Wagga Wagga follow the link below.

Get Your Camping Mats for XMAS

Christmas is nearly upon us, and that means camping trips.   Our camping mats are extremely popular this time of year.  Order yours now and get them in time for the School Holidays & XMAS.

 These are used under a Coleman tent and are just perfect – protects the grass underneath from dying as well as lift the tent off the ground – couldn’t be happier - Rosanne Smith

One word: Versatile. My wife loves them. - Dean Stapleton

I am so happy with these mats, I have only used them 4 together under the step of our caravan. At first I found it hard to click them together but a couple of practices and now it’s easy. They stop so much dirt, grass, sand etc coming into the van. - Gail Newton
