    Coast to coast
    We've always loved travel, on a recent road trip Melbourne - Sydney return we discovered we were pregnant. It couldn't be a more perfect summer camping at different locations along the coast sharing beautiful sunrises and sunsets warm and  basking in the Aussie summer. We decided then and there that we would bring our child up experiencing,learning & seeing the best that Australia and my home country NZ has to offer.We're planning our first trip away this year and an... read more

    We decided to do a travel around Kangaroo Island. Im from NSW and have always wanted to go to KI. I love the quiet, Auzzie atmosphere of places. Im a massive animal fan, and I really wanted to witness the beautiful koalas, kangaroos and seals that just happily enjoy their environment without being disturbed. We travelled to Flinders national park, saw thousands of seals at every beach we went to, and millions of little wallabies. I was surprised we didnt... read more

    I am currently staying in Australia with my partner and I am looking forward to spending this Christmas away from the snowy and freezing Finland. The awesomest thing is that my mum and her husband are coming here for a 3 week holiday!!I'd love to show them the real Australian scenery and wildlife... (as my mum wishes to see all the kangaroos and crocodiles live in the nature!) :D She has only travelled in Europe so this will be something... read more

    No Worries!
    Since retiring, our trips travelling round Australia and New Zealand have been the most memorable journeys we have ever made. From Cairns to Melbourne and then Perth back to Perth via the Red Centre and the Kimberley gave us a glimpse into the wilderness and vastness that is Australia. Most of this was in a Motorhome fully supported by Cheapa Campa (Apollo). The minor things that needed fixing were attended to straight away and there was always someone at... read more

    Road Trip for Two
    How did we get here? Just me and you, have we lost someone? We were at the end of a 7 week holiday for the travelling trio, the 3 magpies, it was just awesome! When we departed Sydney for a week in New Zealand, we left one of our trio in Sydney, actually surprised as we missed him! We gals had a great time, on the south island driving a camper through passes, up mountainsides and down into the gullies,... read more

    Where God goes for his holidays...
    Whe I was kid my Grandparents were the Manager of a set of 5 cabins that sat above a cliff face at COFFIN BAY SA, I spent a major part of my life there whilst growing up. We walked its sandy roads for miles to get to the 'back beaches' where massive white sandhills went on forever and this became our own private beach, and was truly worth the walk. I believe this will be my heaven when I leave... read more

    What's in the middle of the beautiful South Island
    Flying down from Whakatane to Christchurch on a early morning was spectacular. Snow capped mountains, baby sheep, and loads of smiles and that was just from the plane.Picking up our camper the great thing was that we were the makers of our own holiday. Us and the fantastic "Tourism Radio, not just a radio but a navigation system to..." lolWe left Christchurch after visting friends and went on seven days of excitement before returning back to our friends.

    Road Trip - Australia Top End
    I've already written about our wonderful road trip to parts of Queensland and the Northern Territory, but now I'd like to share some of the magical photos. There are places you can only get to by 4 wheels (or 2, or 6, or 8 - depending on your vehicle of choice) and a spirit of adventure.  We unfortunately weren't in an Apollo Motorhome on this trip, but rest assured that next time we will be!  When you are in places... read more

    beer and wine
    Our road trip started from Katoomba NSW to Adelaide SA and back thru the great ocean road and home.  The Australian outback is amazing and diverse, our next road trip driving from Darwin NT over to Broome WA and all the way down WA to Albany or Adelaide would be amazing.  I hope to do it in style with an Apollo, (not an Astra) and with more room to move.  I still have nightmares thinking about all the boutique wines and beers we... read more
