My brother has just returned form visiting Marble Bar plus Dampier and Port Hedland. He said that all the caravan parks along the coast are full. Even the free 72 hour 'stopover' sites on the main routes are crowded. And, I am sure that JohnM will know the area, the free camping at Niagara Dam near Kookynie was packed.

No wonder I could use IHG points for this stay.

I got the same from my brother about a month ago - he just gave up and came back to SA

I just can’t catch a lucky break 🥲
Curfew tonight…
Well at least you have some good TV bingeing lined up! It's a pretty tough day for many people today. Here in ACT, our lockdown was just extended by 2 weeks. I know others have it worse. But that is still tough for me when I was expecting to be spending a lovely family holiday with Seat Son.

Ok
I think I am seeing a possibility for travel in maybe 3 weeks in Darwin (provided NT allow us in as we continue to have no comm transmission in Vic). I need sun and have conceded that it’s easier to plan a trip to North Korea than WA. QLD currently tricky…
so… ill have everything packed for 24hours notice ….. Ive Looked on the hotel websites and seems lots of rooms when I did dummy booking leaving tonight….
fingers crossed🤞
I wrote this 2 weeks ago.
better give up my retirement plan to become a psychic!!🤪🤪

Just back from a week long road trip around the red centre. My first time there and probably the last of my big bucket list items left in Australia and realistically wouldn't have gone unless for covid (would have probably been overseas).

Alice Springs was busy enough, cafes etc were busy, art shops struggling, biggest issue lack of staff (backpackers).

Uluru was reasonably busy but i understand 50% down on pre-covid. They haven't reduced their prices at the resort however....

Camp sites were packed - turning people away who hadn't booked. Not just grey nomads but lots of young couples/ families who have taken up caravans etc. Quite a few families / people from VIC / NSW who are not going home until the lockdown ends (home schooling)!
