desert dreaming

The desert is the stuff of dreams, a landscape devoid of clutter and confusion. In its classic form, a sandy expanse of land reaching out 360 degrees to all touchpoints of the upper atmosphere.

And it’s probably at night when being out there among the dunes transports you up and away into the wider Cosmos. In cities, and other similarly built-up areas, it’s easy to disregard what’s going on in the sky. In the desert it’s impossible. The Irish playwright, Sean O’Casey, in ‘The Plough and the Stars,’ wrote, “I ofen looked up at the sky an’ assed meself the question — what is the stars? What is the stars?” and this is…

bush mechanic magic

Let's face it, sometimes things just don’t go to plan in the outback. We‘d like to think that with good vehicle preparation, a breakdown isn’t going to happen, but the reality is, sometimes you just can’t help it. Imagine you’re stuck in the middle of nowhere with a 4WD that just won’t drive, or a camper that won’t tow. In most cases, you would send or call for help, right? But what if that’s not an option? Would you have a crack at a smarty pants bush-mechanic fix, or stand out there for hours with your thumbs up? Now, there are a few things that can change the way you handle this type of situation, but truth be told, you’ve got to do a lot of things wrong if you end up…

rising riches

"Pushed up from an ancient seabed in the remote interior of Western Australia's northwest the Kennedys have dominated , the surrounding plains for thousands of years". With its elaborately branched gorges and sandstone cliffs rising like battlements up to 100m high on its eastern side, Western Australia’s Kennedy Ranges are indeed a formidable sight. As an increasing number of visitors to this remote national park are finding, the majestic eroded landscape combines spectacular cliffs and gorges, eerie canyons, ancient marine fossils, strange honeycomb formations, an array of colourful gemstones and an extensive Aboriginal history. Pushed up from an ancient seabed in the remote interior of Western Australia's northwest, the Kennedys have dominated the surrounding plains for thousands of years.

back to the future

"EXTRA BRAWN MEANS YOU GET A HECK OF A LOT MORE SPACE INSIDE, MAKING IT THE PERFECT MATCH FOR THE AVERAGE FAMILY" Sometimes to leap forward into the future, you’ve got to look back and learn from the past. Don’t worry, I’m not about to go all Dalai Lama on you – quite the opposite actually. To put it simply, the team at Cub Campers have been building camper trailers for a heck of a long time, and when they take all they’ve learned and put it into the latest edition of an already impressive camper trailer design, you can bet your last buck that it’s going to be nothing short of extraordinary.
