Our campers and caravans get around. Here are some of the places they have been to.
We see a real mix of people heading off on their holidays in our caravans and campers - we also see a remarkable range of destinations. Here are some of the places they have been to, or places that we have visited and enjoyed. I'd recommend using this for a bit of inspiration, then checking them out in detail on the internet.
Many customers head north. Up the M1 through Hexham, then on to one of many destinations or stopovers - Bonny Hills, Seal Rocks, Forster, Nelson Bay, Port Macquarie, Yamba, Coffs Harbour, as far north as Byron Bay or even Kingscliff. All of these towns and cities are different, but have a similar relaxed beach vibe, with great caravan parks & campsites and lots of family friendly entertainment when you get there. There are great inland destinations that way as well - Riverwood Downs is a great spot, and there are lots of camp grounds through the Gloucester and Barrington Tops. For a great family park have a look at Darlington Beach near Coffs Harbour - enormous sites, great kids activities, a private golf course and right on a great beach - this is one of our all time favourite parks.
Closer to Sydney are the great destinations on the NSW Central Coast. From the rustic charm of Greenmans Valley at Mt White, to the full on family park at Ocean Beach Umina, there are caravan parks dotted along the coast. Some that we have enjoyed include Dunleith at the Entrance (try to get a waterfront site - they're magic!), Toowoon Bay, Patonga, Norah Head, Blue Lagoon at Bateau Bay, and there are some great National Park sites in the Munmorah State Conservation Area. Don't forget too there are a few camping grounds in the Watagans.
For those that head south, the coast is again popular - Merimbula, Batemans Bay, Kiama, Jervis Bay and Eden have all seen our campers or caravans visit. The Snowy River region also has some beautiful spots - we heard great things about Murrumbidgee Dam, and Jindabyne is a recurrent favourite.
If you want to head west, Cowra is one of our favourites - along with the centres of Bathurst and Orange, Wellington and its caves or Dubbo - it's worth a few days there to do the zoo properly, and there are great camping sites close by.
Victoria has seen a lot of our caravans and campers. The Great Ocean Road has some fantastic stops, and Daylesford is popular. Bright in the High Country has been visited a few times, and the south east corner (Bairnsdale, Lakes Entrance and Norinbee) have all been paid a visit.
One of the favourite trips, particularly through winter, is the Red Centre. The clockwise route seems to be the most favoured - Sydney to Broken Hill, often via Dubbo and Mudgee, then on to Port Augusta, up to Coober Pedy then out to Alice and Uluru. The Merrennie Loop through Kings Canyon and along the MacDonald Ranges often makes the itinerary, then either back down the Stuart Highway or North up to Mt Isa and across to the Queensland Coast, finishing the trip by heading south along the East Coast.
While trips into the desert require more preparation they are also popular. The Oodnadatta Track from Marree to Marla (taking in the Pink Roadhouse at Oodnadatta and a flight over Lake Eyre from William Creek) is a trip to remember and a destination in itself. Cameron Corner via Tibooburra is worth the trip if only to play a round on the Tri State Golf Course - 9 holes; 3 in NSW, 3 in SA and 3 in Qld!
Our map is updated regularly and shows the places that our hirers or us have been to. As I said at the beginning, check some of these destinations out on the internet and start planning that next trip! If you want to do it in style, get in touch with us to see what caravan or camper is most suitable for you and what is available for when you want to go. We do have some restrictions on destination, but not many! And - if you have been out there in one of our caravans or campers we would love to see a photo of you on the road.
