Australia Campervan Tour

Australia Campervan Tour

We’ve been getting lots of interest and questions about the campervan we’re renting down here in Australia, so come on in for a tour! It may be compact, but the space is perfectly usable and the smaller size lets us fit just about anywhere, even in most parking spaces.

Lots of things are different than we’re used to, but we found it easy to adapt. One thing that’s very helpful is that the vast majority of rigs have one thing in common: modest holding tank capacities. The reason that’s helpful is because caravan parks (that’s Aussie for “RV parks”) provide infrastructure to support that. Virtually every park has bathrooms with nice clean showers… along with “camp kitchens” to allow campers to cook meals without using water or filling their grey tanks.

Quite the 'compact' unit. Looks like fun for a week or three but would be challenging for real long trips. Especially where there are no caravan parks with showers and cooking areas.

Have you come across any true full-timers in Australia?

We have indeed met some full-timers, referred to as "Grey Nomads" here in Australia (since they're so often retirees). The issue of small toilet cassettes can indeed be an annoyance when free camping (boondocking) for an extended period. We can go two weeks on our black tank, but obviously a cassette could never last that long.

We could never full-time in anything this small either, although we know people who do. But I t's great for a vacation. It's quite a revelation to be able to fit just about anywhere!

I KNEW you would get to the van review at some point! Your coverage of your trip has been so thorough and visually satisfying, I don't feel the need to go myself! And forgive me if you felt I left out the writing and narration, top shelf as always!

Thanks George! If you're satisfied enough from what we've shared so far to not need your own visit Down Under, once you see some more of the videos we're currently editing, you'll definitely never go! LOL This country is amazing!!

Hi D&B! We stayed with a family along the coast that has a magnificent 40' bus conversion, which you'll see in an upcoming video (although just from the outside... not a tour). That is definitely the exception to the rule, as there's not an RV park that we've seen anywhere that they can fit. They're big free campers (boondockers).
