1. The people you meet
Say what you will about being constantly on the move, but when you are driving from town to town, each different stop holds the potential for new stories, experiences and friends. The best part is that it doesn’t matter exactly what part of the country you are seeing. Country folk are known for being easy-going and always up for a yarn, and if your route takes you closer to the hostels in the cities and bigger towns then prepare to be regaled with stories of varying degrees of larrikinism.
2. The places you see
Travellers Autobarn has been selling vehicles to backpackers for over 20 years – we are well know for our “Slap N Tickle” fit outs for our vans – meaning your own bed as well as kitchen in your van – it’s your home one wheels
The benefit of having your home on wheels around Australia are:
- Very comfortable & mostly very spacious
- You can sleep pretty much anywhere you want – in the city, close to the beach or in the national parks
- No matter if heavy rains 0r wind – you will definitely stay try
- Hungry? Go ahead and cook a meal anywhere in Australia!
- And yes, always high demand so easy to sell!
- Mostly very fuel friendly compared to the Stationwagons & 4WDs.
Oh Ningaloo! Three hundred kilometres of stunning coastline and a wildlife encounter to rival any bucket list item: swimming with a whale shark! The road less traveled apparently offer the better memories and well, what can I say: it does!
I just got back from my Western Australia trip in a campervan last week and I simply loved it! Still dreaming about the white sand dunes around Lancelin (good sand boarding!), the moon-like Pinnacles desert and of course one of the highlights, Cape Range National Park where kangaroos, koalas and turtles wait for you and where you can snorkel the 300km long Ningaloo Reef (World Heritage listed fringing reef for its outstanding beauty and biological diversity) which in no way should be less famous than the Great Barrier Reef – I want to fly back TODAY and do it all again and again and again…
