Welcome everyone and a special thanks to all new subscribers.
Camping Holidays In Australia are hugely popular as camping covers everything from basic camping in a tent or swag to road tripping in a motorhome and a fifth wheeler.
The freedom to travel where ever you like is exciting and adventurous, some of us stay on the main roads and others love the adventure of the dirt roads and four wheel driving.
In Australia you have the opportunity and options to stay at beautiful accommodation then head off for a days road trip for a sightseeing adventure or go 'roughing it' camping and have a day in a nearby town for some easy meals and a change of scenery.
When we went to the 'theme parks' at Surfers Paradise several years ago we camped in a tent at the nearby Big 4 Treasure Island Holiday Park rather than staying in a motel or apartment and of course it was a whole lot cheaper.
Everywhere you go camping in Australia there are always interesting people to meet, exciting things to do and many unique things to see.
Happy travelling everyone.
Below I have included a new road trip, caravan park directories, we continue travelling Australia and several travel Australia book suggestions.
