Hosting overseas visitors is a great excuse to indulge in the oft overlooked touristy pleasures of my own backyard. Even in winter there is no shortage of things to do and more importantly see based in Albany.

Travel and camp on durable surfaces

Campsites like these with a hard rock base are easy to look after. It is always great to camp someplace pristine where there is no signs of human life. No rubbish, no graffiti, nothing. Campsites like this are why I love the outdoors. Put our modern gear to one side and things haven't changed over time, just how it should be.
