Welcome everyone and a special thanks to all new subscribers.
Apologies for delivering October's Newsletter a few days late.
Whether we are planning a holiday for a few weeks or many months it is always exciting. Deciding where to go, what to do and see can be planned in detail or you can go with the flow and have a general plan of destinations etc.
Where you go is usually determined by your starting position which is usually your home and how long you have avaailable. Australia has an amazing range of experiences you can enjoy.
If you like travelling along the coast there are plenty of beaches and coastal towns to explore, inland there are stunning rainforests, rural towns. the Outback and attractions, the major and regional cities are all unique and have something interesting for all ages and interests.
If you are planning a holiday I hope you have a great holiday and then have many more great holidays, as you won't be able to stop, there is so much to see, experience and love about Australia.
Happy travelling everyone.
Below I have included a new road trip, a free travel resource, a camping book and we visit the Top End and more.
