Kelso Sands & Green's Beach
Caravan Parks- Wonderful places to stay!
Whether in a Tent, Caravan or "Cosy Cabin"
KELSO SANDS CARAVAN PARK
We were known as "Tent City" because we had 2 very long
tents (only one is seen here) and 3 small ones, to accommodated
We camped here for many years before we changed to a caravan.
Kelso Sands Caravan Park was the first park in Tassie who passed
the tests to allow electric power into tents, before that we had to
use gas bottles for everything.

My youngest granddaughter having fun with a possum!
A favourite activity for all children after dark is
possum spotting and feeding.
These possums are not tame and you must be careful, they
are friendly just for the bread that is given to them :-)
The wombats and kangaroos also wander around after dark.
A few more miles from Kelso, heading north will bring you to the
beach overlooking Bass Strait, which must be crossed to reach
At first glance Green's Beach appears to be a sleepy, rather wild,
barren place to visit, but once out of your vehicle you discover
many tracks to explore, these were originally animal tracks.
As you meander along, you see small holiday houses tucked in
every nook and cranny.
Who would have believed it!
Parking the car under some shady trees, we wondered if we would
ever feel cool again.
Off we go to see the sea ... over the sand dunes along a trail
almost hidden by coastal shrubbery.
We reach the top of the dunes ... oh boy! cool air greets us!
The water lapping at the sand seems to be saying "Come on in"
so we do ... oh my goodness, we gasp for breath ... the water
is freezing :-)
Us - Duh!
Some of the smaller dunes are behind us *grins*
We often took the children to Green's beach for a picnic, this
is a poor photo I know, but the only one I have.
GREEN'S BEACH CARAVAN PARK
We never stayed here - a bit too rough and ready for us in the
earlier days - the grandchildren loved to drive through the
beachside park - their main comments were always ...
"We are glad you and Poppa chose Kelso Sands" :-)
Thank you for visiting.
