FORGET eggs, free-range parenting was all the rage this Easter, as Leslie Dam campers embraced the freedoms that came with their laid-back lifestyle.
“We love the freedom that comes with camping, it’s nice and friendly and no-one is stuck watching the TV,” Toowoomba resident Pauline Bickhoff said.
This echoed the attitude of multiple families at the Washpool camp grounds.
Many listed the tight-knit community above budgeting as their main reason for choosing tent over tower.
Ms Bickhoff who has visited Leslie Dam with her family for a quarter of a century said it was the best holiday for children.
