One of the most appealing aspects of going caravanning is being out in nature and stopping to take in the natural surroundings and wildlife wherever we go. Travelling around Australia I’ve been lucky enough to have many wildlife encounters. I’ve seen whales breaching and cruising past the coast in pods, hand fed dolphins and patted stingrays. All of these and more you can read about in various adventures on the website.
Since diving into freelance travel writing a few years ago, it has opened up a lot of opportunities and exciting challenges. Through writing and jumping into social media like Instagram it has enabled my love of photography to have a wider use and given me an outlet to show others some pretty spectacular places in this country.
Discovering wineries in the Adelaide Hills is more than just about the wine. My latest find is Anderson Hill winery in Lenswood. Not that they are new on the scene, the winery was established in 1994 by the Anderson family on 35 picturesque acres. The restaurant is however recently expanded and you have the option of dining indoors, out on the deck or at tables set up on the lawn. The views to the north from outside overlook the vineyards and take in breathtaking rolling hills and the mountain bike trails in Mt Crawford Forest.
What a perfect time to visit the Adelaide Hills in South Australia. Leaves are starting to change colour, it’s cooling down but not too much yet and the food and wine is second to none. Here’s a few ideas for people living in South Australia to do this Easter weekend or for those further afield, to put on your wish lists.
You betcha! Our feeling has always been that dogs enrich your holiday experiences, they are the ones that will always go with you for a walk even if it’s when the sun is rising or after the sun has set.
We have always been kelpie owners and we seem to have been lucky in that after the initial mad puppy stage they have been obedient, eager to please, and intelligent dogs.
It’s impossible not to be happy if you are staying at the Foreshore Caravan Park at Port Vincent on South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula. It’s a big call, but when you only have to take a dozen paces from your caravan to be on the beach overlooking a sheltered bay, dolphins dipping in and out of the water and pelicans flying by, it’s a call I’m prepared to stand by!
A long weekend is always welcome but I must admit we don’t tend to go away caravanning at those times because every other man and his dog does, so traffic can be a little nuts. This is especially so if you have plans to head to Yorke Peninsula in South Australia.
