    The trip of a lifetime
    Finally we made it to OZ. I actually wanted to visit the South Seas, but my wife insisted on Australia, so we combined the two.We hired a Camper from a well-known supplier via the internet.Off we set from Perth heading north last October. We dawdled up the coast towards Exmouth, partly along the coast and partly through the Midlands. The flowers were gorgeous as were the animals. Unlike some travellers, we only averaged 100 km a day, if that -...

    The Great Family holiday - Extinct?
    So, I sit at this computer... surrounded by old newspapers which somehow manage to hide most of the dust that has accumulated on the surface of my desk. How has this happened? Through neglect I hear you say. Well, yeah. But it's happened slowly. A few specks of dust a day and a newspaper for dessert, I guess. Oh to be clear from this uninspiring scenery!!So you'd like to hear about my best holiday adventure? Well, I was lucky enough...

    Kakadu etc.
    My husband and I took our first Motorhome holiday in more than 30 years last August.  Sheer luxury in comparison - VW Kombie around Europe - Cheapacampa 2 berth in NT. A two week trip from Darwin - Litchfield, Katherine and Kakadu. What a surprise! Weather was perfect, sights were unforgettable, swims in hot springs a delight. The camper was very comfortable and drove like a car. Included everything we needed.  Made us feel young and carefree again.Now we dream of retirement and...

    Sheila and Bruce Go Wild in the West!
    We adopted the pseudonyms Sheila and Bruce for a bit of fun and the blog shows we had plenty of that. We are sold on Cheapa Campa and used them in New Zealand last year as well as in Australia this year. Both times we were upgraded from a 4 berth to a 6 berth for no extra cost and one or two small problems we had on the road were dealt with quickly and efficiently. We travelled more than...

    The adventure of our life
    Yeah, we finally went on our lives adventure. We had been planning the trip for almost a year and it was the greatest feeling that went through our bodies as we stepped out from the airport and into the warm Australian night. After a good night’s sleep, we went to the office to pick up the car, and we took off on our adventure. First we saw the Great Ocean Road – and what a sight. Because we had our...

    Hidden treasures of south west Western Australia.
    We picked up our 4wd poptop camper from Perth, it was 40 degrees and we couldn't wait to get the aircon on and start our road trip.  First stop was Fremantle, a beautiful portside city with awesome markets with plenty of cafes and bars. From there we drove straight towards Bremer bay with an overnight stop at Broomhill. Bremer bay and the Albany coastline are magnificent with the coastal scenery dominated by the rounded granite rocks and headlands.  The wind...

    Touring the Southwest Corner by camper
    We had just been informed that due to Passports being short of Expiry (3 Months) that our Asia Trip was off so we contemplated how to fill in some of our Holiday, We secured the hire of a Cheapa Camper online, only to be told in a subsequent mail that the local site was out of Cheapa Vehicles and they offered to upgrade us to one of their Apollo Campers, a Newer vehicle at the same price (I was impressed)...

    Cheapa Roadtrip

It was to be a 14 day campervan trip up the east coast of Australia, starting in Melbourne and finishing in Cairns. Little did we know how drastically this trip would change despite all our planning!Firstly, a few days before we were due to leave two friends had to...

    Bellingen and The Flying Foxes
    For our Christmas 2010 holiday we drove to Queensland in a campervan. We were planning this trip for a number of months, intially in a VW Combi, but luckily enough, at some stage we upgraded to a Cheapa Campa with electricity, a fridge and a cooker. Just about every time we talked about the trip my boyfriend mentioned how he wanted to go to Bellingen to see the Flying Foxes.Now what is a Flying Fox you ask. Well in his...
