Overnight camping near Jumpin Pin
« on: Tue 7 Jan 08:39 2020 »
Hi all. I am looking to take a mate who is very down at the moment (farmer affected by this terrible drought) away for a day or two.

I regularly visit the area around the Ďpin but itís been 20years since I spent a night camping over there. Used to be able to throw your swag out just about anywhere around the beaches?

Whereís a good place these days? I know itís a busy time of year but itís for a good cause.

Thanks in advance. Have a great week all

There are several spots along Short Island on the Northern side where the old huts used to be. The bedrooms as well but may be a bit crowded this time of year. Along the northern side of Crusoe Island there are a few spots as well as the small island at the eastern end of Tiger Mullet channel.

Hope you find a suitable spot.

    You will need bushmans and sufficient alcohol to numb the pain.

    Very Northern tip of South Straddie has a few good spots to put a swag.

    What does everyone do for toilets in these areas?
    Must be a lot of buried crap around there
    Also is it pretty secure to leave things like a fridge at your camp site?
