Camping at the Cotter

We made a last minute decision to take the kidlets camping this weekend and given our late start we thought a trip down to the Cotter might be nice as it's just 20 minutes from home. Camping rates are very reasonable at $7.50 for adults and kidlets under 10 free. The facilities are really good with washing up sinks, flushing toilets & hot showers. It's just up the road from Casuarina Sands swimming area so we spent lots of time swimming & hanging out to cool down in the river.

Sunday morning we took a walk up to the Cotter Caves which is a 1.6km return walk although parts of the walk are moderately steep both the kids managed up to the caves and back without too much drama. We had a really nice short break away and it was nice to get out of the routine and do something a bit different with the kidlets before the school/preschool/work stuff starts.

I have to say that it's also very very handy to pick an ex-scout bloke to bring along on a camping trip. There is nothing quite like a glass of wine, good conversation and toasted marshmallows to end an evening.

I really enjoyed camping. I had a really great experience during the camping this summer. I'm sure you had fun too.
