Swimcart Camping trip (St Helens) - Launceston photographer

Hey it's local outings blog circle time. Let me share our camping trip to Swimcart along the East coast of Tasmania. We have recently purchased a wind up camper trailer and this was our first official trip. 

We did one night just before Christmas. It was supposed to be two nights, that soon turned into a 12 hour round trip. It rained the whole time and my husband got gastro. We didn't have the best start.

This trip was different. We were a little unsure to start with. But the rain stopped when we got there. The kids had so much fun and 2 nights just wasn't long enough. It was a good tester into the freedom camping world and we are addicted. 

The waves were strong but a great spot to let the kids practice casting a rod.

We found a cosy little place for the kids to swim and explore the rocks.

The sand was oh so black and made a mess, especially when we couldn't stop Everett from rolling around in it, but that's camping. We used the esky to wash them up in.

We're definitely not totally set up yet and sure we'll keep finding things we need.

If you have any helpful camping with children tips, I would love to hear them!! Comment below.

I included a short film as well as some pictures.
