Setting up camp

  • Set up in daylight – an obvious remark you say, but how often do we not allow ourselves the time.
  • Look over the ground for bull ants nests. There is nothing worse than finding out after you’ve set up that they are there. Be mindful if you find a nice clear spot, clear of ground vegetation (grass etc) as this is often an ants domain.
  • Beware of tree fall and dropping branches. A nice shady spot is wonderful, but the good old Aussie gum will drop branches of considerable size very easily. Better to make your own shade than wake up in an ambulance.
  • Consider where the sun is in the morning – if you’re breaking camp early you will want the site in full sun asap, to dry out the tents.
