Well it is a long road to get all the data filled in, but certain areas of www.findacamp.com.au are starting to look a bit more complete. I just finished updating some of the campgrounds near Adelaide and was remembering what a beautiful part of the world this is.
It is such a different area to the last lot of campsites I added around Brisbane. Comparing D’Aguilar National Park and Deep Creek Conservation Reserve is a case in point. The rugged coastline of the Fleurieu Penninsula is unlike any other in Australia. I am looking forward to visiting that area again, and heading over to Page Island in the to see the Sea Lions.
Well, it is great to be back online. After many years of hiding from computers, it has been a short but steep learning curve getting back up to speed on the world of the interweb.
The question is why am I back? Well it is different this time, it is all about me. After building myself a custom web application for tracking all the campsites I have been to over the past 20 or so years (or am planning to visit) I decided to (crack my knuckles) and put it to good use and build http://www.findacamp.com.au
It is a simple site that allows you to pick an area that you would like to go camping near and then bring back all the campsites within a chosen radius. It turned into a bit of a “Ben H” moment though when I realised how much data I had at my finger tips. 20+ years is a long time.
So far I have only added a few dozen National parks and campsites but I’ll be updating on a regular basis and am hoping it will get to be a useful resource for other nature loving campers.
