Local firm, Camps Australia Wide, are urging Aussies to #gowest and #stay with a farmer.

“Talking to the farmers, it was heartbreaking – some of them have been in drought for NINE years!” said co-owner, Michelle Gilmore. “Although rain has fallen in some of these places – another farmer said it would take 10 to 15 years for them to recover from this drought.

“They really need bookings to get them on track – and each one offers unique experiences – there’s a health retreat, art workshops, history tours, music festival and award-winning gelato!”

With all the attention on the fires, they thought it was even more important to help send travellers to them.

“Do one or the whole circuit – the closest one is less than four hours from Gympie!” urged Michelle.

Known for their CAMPS 10 and PARKS 5 books, and Camps Australia Wide App – the Rainbow Beach team work hard updating all sorts of sites around Australia – from showgrounds and national parks, to pub RV parks and farm stays.
