Not in five star luxury, not in three star convenience … but under canvas in a tent. And it was brilliant. Which has led me to think about the reasons why camping is good for you. Really good for you. Neither were there fancy caravans although they have their placebut how lovely it was after a busy day at the food and wine festival to leave the crush of humanity and come back to the peace of Wharncliffe Mill camp site to just sit under the stars with our friends, drinking wine and putting the world to rights.
As you do under the light of the silvery moon sitting on rickety camp chairs that have seen better days. This year it featured over 50 celebrity chefs, top international and local culinary talent as well as lo of delicious West Australian produce and wines. The Gourmet Village along with satellite events and unique activities is held in spectacular south west Australian locations. My name is Jo Castro and I've been a freelance writer for over 35 years.

Happy camping Jo! Glad you had fun! We loved tent camping back in the old days with the. My husband, Mr. Your description of you and your husband seamlessly not! We had borrowed a 3 person tent—for our family of 5. My poor parents ended up sleeping in the back of our Volvo station wagon—no mattress until some guy at a campsite took pity on them and gave them a piece of foam. Oh Suzanne, you gave me a good giggle this morning! My early morning coffee was a jolly one!
Your story reminded me of some fairly ramshackle camping expeditions we had as kids too! We did what I consider a better form of camping. Got a hundred reasons to go camping…and road tripping at the same time! I am so with you on these! Wow, what a trip Carol!
I totally agree with you that camping is great for making memories. We used to camp a lot when we were younger. I now live at the lake and enjoy exploring the region on day trips. But the rest of my travels is always done in a tight timeframe, so unfortunately, no more camping for me!
Living by the lake must be gorgeous Doreen — probably almost as close to nature as you would be camping anyway! We went camping once when the kids were young. Our friends had everything that was needed and more. When we arrived our tent was up and it was time for drinks!! David, my otherwise perfect husband, refuses to camp — point blank, end of story!
Be fun to find out though. Hi JO, you know we love the camping life — but I like a bit of luxury too. We upgraded from tent to camper trailer, and now to caravans — much easier to put up as we ease into retirement age. I loved the idea of your mix of camping and gourmet. And tell me where were the giant pencils? Thanks Jo. We learned this back in when we packed up all our worldly goods, rented out our house, and travelled Australia in a caravan with 2 kids!
But I do enjoy getting back to basics too. These are all the reasons why we love camping so much. It really is the best way to get away from it all and have a totally relaxing weekend once you get the tent up of course. Haha, Melissa! Wharncliffe Mill is a camp ground I have heard so much about. Hopefully I will get down that way soon.
While I agree with most of your reasons why camping is good for you. I need indoor plumbing without having to venture outside to find it. I like the whole daytime activities associated with camping. See you for breakfast Leanne! We use to love camping as a family. We would camp with our neigbours in NSW who had all the bells and whistles when it came to camping essentials. An introduction to camping night under the Id love to go camping for local families. Sadly on opening our tent on that occasion, it was damaged from the removalists, with holes and unfixable tears.
So we popped it in the nearest bin on the campsite before departing. I still wonder what the park staff must have thought on seeing it in the bin. Given that most families involved had never camped before. I wonder if they assumed we hated camping so much we threw the tent out. Of course, I spied my dream tent on Gumtree the next week, for a fraction of the cost. Used once by someone that hated camping that much they wanted to upgrade to a camper van. That dream tent, is still unused by us but my latest featured blogger has me craving camping and I think when hubby returns from sea, a little camping adventure might be on the cards.
I actually do like camping for short periods and I love being out in nature. I totally agree with all your points on why camping is good for us! Id love to go camping would really like to go camping again one day soon. Must get on to it!! Oh my gosh — you saw Nigella! I love her! That food and wine festival looks like it would have been great fun but yes — how lovely to then escape to the serene camp site to reflect on the day and relax with your friends.
She was so down to earth and lovely. Sounds like a good mix of roughing it and living it up! We went camping this year to North Stradbroke Island in a little tent for a couple of nights and we enjoyed it immensely. It was as you say a fabulous way to get away from it all and reconnect with nature. When our kids were little we had a big tent that we camped in a couple of times a year and they were the best days of my life.
Hi Kathy, ahh yes, camping with kids is the best because they love it so much. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.

Reasons why Camping is good for you It gets you out into nature and you realise that you and all your problems are after all only a tiny blip of energy in this amazing universe. You reconnect with the real world around you. You can become a better problem solver — especially if you have to figure out how to put up the tent!
Woah, then you feel so small and inificant. Camping affords you the time to sit and dream or meditate or read or just chew the cud with friends. Sitting around without home comforts, under a tent awning, sharing a bottle of wine and a few choice snacks, talking about this that and the other on neutral territory with no housework or washing up to do is truly liberating.Id love to go camping
