Stenhouse Bay Campground: New Year Eve in Innes National Park

We take very seriously the Russian wonderful belief: "As the new year to meet - so spend it". This is the reason why we always choose very carefully the place for the New Year celebration. Last year, we found out that in Australia people book a New Year accommodation approximately six months before the holiday. It does not fit our concept of quite spontaneous traveling.

So this year, five days before the New Year, Alex looked up from his computer and asked, "How do you feel about New Year's Eve in Innes National Park?" Everyone looked at Sonia, who had fever for the past three days. "I do not care where to be sick," - she happily coughed. We agreed and pre-paid on-line the camp site at the Stenhouse Bay Campground.

North Beach in Wallaroo: Christmas Eve in Knee-Deep Water

Our family has a really nice tradition: we try to spend our holidays somewhere outdoors, as far from home as possible. The Christmas Eve this year was no exception. A few weeks ago we decided to spend this evening at the North Beach in Wallaroo (west coast of York Peninsula).

Wallaroo is one of the historic towns of legendary Copper Coast of the York Peninsula. There are numerous historical sights, and museums related to the mining history of this region. But this time we did not plan to study the historical heritage, and just come to relax on the beach. We have been there once, and kept very sweet memories about visiting this place.

Marino Rocks: Natural Architecture for Local Sea Life

Marino Rocks is another wonderful place, where you can get close to the nature, without leaving the civilized city area. It is just an hour drive, steep decent with beautiful sea views, and we are already parking on the most crooked car park ever. It does not have any lines, that are parallel to the horizon. You can even get a bit of dizziness every now and then.
