  • Support our Communities.  

    You can be spontaneous with your camper.  #BuyFromTheBush. 

    Whether its a twelve month trip around Australia or just jumping in the RV on a Friday afternoon for a quick weekend getaway, travelling to our most drought and bushfire affected regions of Australia helps support families and communities in rebuilding their lives.  It's a win - win, you enjoy your break and at the same time help fellow Australian's rebuild.  You can plan for months before you go or be spontaneous, just get in, drive away, switch off and enjoy!

    Our Tip

    If solitude is your thing, a camping holiday will be perfect for you. You don’t even need to check the weather forecast if your RV has a built-in diesel cabin heating, as sudden changes in the weather will not pose a problem. If you want to move on, you’re not tied to one place. You have a travelling hotel room, so you can visit other places whenever you like!

  • Eco-friendlier.  

    Even if most RV's on the road are diesel, the environmental impact of travelling by RV is much less than if you were to fly. Even a hotel stay (17kg CO2) creates more pollutants than a night in an RV (1.5kg CO2).  At many campsites, sustainability is a priority: some of them use rainwater and solar panel water heaters or produce electricity using photovoltaics. Eco? Logical!

    Our Tips

    Free Camp to reduce electrical power consumptions from the grid. Support local, get supplies from the local market.  Invest in reusable items. Use biodegradable soap. Recycle, recycle, recycle.

    Camping: Eco? Logical! 
  • Family friendly.

    Camping holidays are for the whole family. 

    For most families, just travelling to their holiday destination can be a stressful experience. Long  drives can soon get boring for the little ones. And if traffic is heavy, it can put people in a bad mood. But in an RV, you can take a break whenever you feel the need, snacks and drinks are within easy reach from your onboard fridge ensuring a refreshing break.

    Our Tip 

    Check out Australia's Top Camping Spots for some inspiration and idea's for getting out there in Australia or see your local NRMA or RACV sites or checkout the Lets Go Caravan & Camping website .

  • Individuality.  

    Camping couldn’t be further from nondescript package holidays. Even the interior furnishings, design, comfort and convenience of the caravan or RV can be configured to suit your needs. Your options are always open, especially when you’re on the road: any place that looks attractive and exciting can become your next destination.

    Our Tip  

    CAMPS Australiawide makes it easier to find remote and little-known places to stay. It’s available as a website or smartphone app (App Store).

    Each campsite offers a number of advantages - how about a place directly on the water? 
  • Better value for money. 

    The cost of your holiday at a campsite ultimately depends on your own needs. If, despite having a camper, you can’t be without a swimming pool, coffee shop and restaurants, you’ll no doubt pay more. Nevertheless, most campsites are generally cheaper than comparable hotels and boast good standards. If you choose not to stay at 5-star campsites, you won’t find better value for money on any other holiday.

    Our Tip 

    Prices for a site can vary dramatically from state to state. Jump on the local state goverment websites for information on staying in National Parks.  NSW  VIC  SA  QLD  TAS
