necessary or irrelevent?

Over the past decade, I’ve noticed a decline in tourism centres around Australia. In fact, a council officer recently told me that such centres were unnecessary because of the internet! Yes, I use the internet extensively for research and DVD trip planning, but the best way to get the information I need is through visitor information centres, talking to locals and fellow RVers. They are the main ways I’ve discovered important stories which I can’t do solely by using the internet. There’s another false theme that seems concurrent with the disappearance and degradation of visitor information centres. I’ve heard in my travels that grey nomads, and especially free campers, are considered ‘un-Australian.’ I find such comments more than curious having enjoyed Australian Caravan Club musters and those of the Campervan and Motorhome…

the breathta king yar ra valley

We arrived in the Yarra Valley and chose Lilydale to be our base camp. Deciding on an overview before starting the DVD, we set off for Marysville, the furthest town on our trip. It’s hard to describe the verdant Yarra Valley hillsides: picture cattle and sheep in their prime standing in lush pastures, perfect panoramas and majestic forests and you might understand some of the beauty of this region. Locals kept telling us they were in drought, and while that may be true, the appearance of the countryside through the windows of our vehicle as we drove by belied that fact. Having come from a region in severe drought – in northern NSW – where grass was brown or absent and cattle were in poor condition, the lush Yarra Valley…

breathtaking purnululu

Australia is an ancient land. To stand amongst Purnululu’s striped beehive-like formations, previously known as the Bungle Bungles, is to feel the immense age of our beloved continent. It also brings a feeling of connection to our land. Hidden amongst the folds of stone are striking chasms, palm lined gorges and enormous cathedral-like caves. This is an overwhelmingly spectacular place. The sandstone and conglomerate rock which make up the Bungle Bungle Range were deposited around 360 million years ago. Erosion by water and weathering over the past 20 million years have carved out a surreal landscape. The traditional custodians of this land, the Jaru and Gidja people, have lived in the region for more than 20,000 years. Surprisingly, Purnululu remained a hidden treasure of The Kimberley region in WA until 1982,…

prehistoric wonderland

As I admired the amazing stalactite display within the walls of the World Heritage-listed, Alexandra Caves, I was constantly reminded of how fortunate we are to live in such a magnificent country. It’s no secret that Australia has some of the most spectacular tourist destinations in the world, but it’s travelling through the wonderfully historic rural towns that really play up to this statement. Nestled in a peaceful pocket in rural South Australia, surrounded by lush farmland, beautiful vineyards and prehistoric footprints, it’s no surprise that Naracoorte has something for everyone to enjoy. Founded in 1845 by Scottish explorer, William Macintosh, Naracoorte became a service town for the people going to and from the Victorian Gold Rush, due to its proximity to the Victorian border. A relatively small town compared to…

luxury, comfort & unbeatable value

The SR-18 has a sleek and modern design with an element of ruggedness from the series of black checker plating that wraps itself around the lower section of the van. The walls of the caravan are made with single piece composite fibreglass panels fitted on a lightweight but durable aluminium frame. Fabricating the walls of the SR-18 as single pieces adds strength and rigidity so the van is able to endure the countless corrugations on Australian dirt roads. STAY OFF THE GRID For vanners who prefer to free camp, the SR-18 offers many options. It comes fitted with two 95 litre water tanks, a 100AH AGM battery, and a 120 watt solar panel. The van also comes standard with two 9kg gas bottles at the front and a water tap. There is…
