It is the Australian Dream. To retire from the daily grind of work and head off across the Nullarbor, drive to the tip of Cape York, explore the Red Centre, eyeball a crocodile in Kakadu, dive the Great Barrier Reef. The list goes on. What better way to do all that than in a caravan!
For the past twenty years, we have owned caravans (known as RVs or trailers in the USA). The first was an A-Van which popped up into an A-frame camper in less time than it takes to put on the kettle.
Although much loved, we farewelled the A-Van for the more comfortable Lotus Uptown, with its shower and toilet, washing machine and leather seats, huge fridge and roomy queen sized bed.
In this year’s A to Z we will visit some of Australia’s lesser known but nonetheless interesting places. The stories that you read will sometimes be of our own experiences but more often, they will tell the legends and chronicles of the people who lived and died somewhere on this vast, unpredictable continent we call home.
