As soon as spring arrives and the weather becomes more pleasant and inviting, every true nature lover starts planning for a nice camping trip with their loved ones. Although there’s nothing wrong with visiting the places we’ve already explored so well in the past, I believe that choosing to go somewhere we have never been before can be much more exciting and satisfying. After all, being curious and wanting to enrich our lives with new experiences is in our very nature, which is exactly what inspired me to write about the unique beauty of Mount Remarkable National Park.
Mount Remarkable National Park, located near Adelaide, is perceived as a perfect camping place (including for children), as there are many campsites and two accommodation options. If you choose to dwell in your RV during your stay in the park, then I strongly suggest you to bring along with you a few covers for caravans, for it can get extremely hot during the summer days (the temperature can reach 45ºC). This is when the sun’s UV rays can easily damage your new or old but well preserved caravan, which is why you should protect it. Quality polypropylene covers for caravans not only provide the much needed protection against the sun, but they also last for a long period of time, so you might consider buying some for your RV.
When it comes to having fun in the park, there are numerous wonderful activities you can choose from. If you are eager to feast your eyes on this park’s dramatic and unforgettable scenery as well as to encounter some of its mesmerizing native wildlife (such as the rare yellow-footed rock-wallaby), then you should definitely go bush-walking. There are many amazing bush-walking trails, among which the Ali and the Gorge Lookout Walk are the easiest and shortest.
If you are a bit more adventurous and brave, then perhaps you would like to go on a moderate hike or a demanding trek. For example, the 12.2 km-long Mount Remarkable Summit Hike can be just what you are looking for, as it offers an one-of-a-kind opportunity to see the fascinating Willochra Plain. The Melrose Nature Hike is a shorter and a safer one, but no less pleasant. Whichever trail you choose to take, always be careful and alert and never forget to pack one or two bottles of water, especially if you visit this park during December or January. Trust me, you’ll need them.
