Now here's a little caravanning secret worth sharing

WIKICAMPS is a camping and caravanning companion you don't leave home without even if you are only planning on a weekend away.

It's an app for smart phones, tablets or Windows computers.

The cost to use is a one-off download fee of $7.99.

The app information states it has the largest and most up-to-date database of camp grounds, caravan parks, backpacker hostels, day use area, points of interest, information centres, public dump points and more.

The database is kept up-to-date by users so you can contribute to its knowledge as you travel the length and breadth of Australia.

It also works offline which is great if you are somewhere that doesn't have a wifi signal.

To start using the app, download its content to your device before you go away so you have it with you right from the start of your happy travels.

To find the app, go to http://www.wikicamps.com.au.
