When can everyone go? Workout when it suits your family & everyone else, if you are staying somewhere for several weeks
Where can you go? Big Decision if you are trying to find somewhere new or maybe you have a regular campsite you go to. If you are looking for a new campsite, you will find plenty of suggestions on the internet, trying searching for ‘free camping’ bush camping’ ‘campsites or campgrounds’ and add the state, territory or town for a better search.
How long? Ask everyone how long they have available, the length of time may vary for different campers so coordinate to suit. You could work out who can stay the longest and then other campers can camp during that time.
What meals? Does each group cater for themselves or is everyone cooks a meal and share it together.

Is your equipment ready? Check your gear is ready to use, if you have new equipment check it works and you know how to use it properly.
