Our camping 4 wheel drive holiday in January

Sandwiches after our first bit of 4 wheel driving down a steep winding mountain road to Wombeyan Caves


We did a self guided cave tour - Genna loved it - her first cave!







Then we continued on until it was dinner time and setup camp at the top of a mountain so it was chilly!! (thus the towel blankets around the campfire :)



the kids loved our campsite visitor

On the next day to some difficult 4 wheel driving - it never looks like much in pictures - but in person this was VERY steep!


We ended up at this lookout with a wrong turn and had to backtrack a bit but WOW what a view -  it was worth it


We continued on and made it to the lookout we had in mind - Kanangra Walls


We then drove to Jenolan Caves. It was too late for a tour, so we went for a walk around the lake


We decided to stay the night & have dinner at the old hotel there. It was so far to keep going to the next campground, and our little people were hungry :)



And it wa nice to be in a bed ha ha!
Our cave tour the next day was fantastic!







We made it to our next desination - the tunnel through to the Glow Worms

A little hike to get there



Gorgeous! Once you get away from the entrance where it's a bit darker, and you shut off your flashlight, you see these tiny blue glowing dots all over the ceiling and walls - glow worms! Stunning




We drove a stunning track to our next destination - literally down into the valley!


And then deep into the end of this valley to Newnes

They followed these guys around the campsite taking pictures of them :) They were about Genna's size - so we warned them not to get to close!!

American campfire marshmallows from Costco yummmmm





Amazingly gorgoeous FREE campsite!

Standing on the hill getting his last 'pictures' of the kangaroos (it's a pretend camera) in his pjs of course :)
We had SUCH a great adventure - 5 days, 4 nights of 4 wheel driving and camping and adventure!
