Stuart Highway Adelaide to Darwin – the Stats

9 Comments

For those planning a driving holiday along the Stuart Highway which runs from south to north of Australia, here are a few facts and figures as they stacked up for us on a 4 week (25 day) getaway. Our travelling ‘rig’ is a Toyota Landcruiser 200 series V8 diesel, and our caravan is a 22ft Jayco Silverline.

Visit Katherine NT

3 Comments

One of the bigger and more well known areas to visit on a trip through the Northern Territory is the town of Katherine.

It is 320 kilometres south east of Darwin and is most popularly known for Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) and various places where you can swim in natural hot springs. This is another region where you could easily spend a week or more enjoying these aspects alone.

When we have visited previously we’ve toured through Katherine Gorge and it’s always a spectacular natural landscape to see but on our last holiday, we spent time discovering some new to us experiences and revisited some other favourite places.

Being a Lazy Lizard at Pine Creek

4 Comments

Every destination has a story to tell. We’ve been guilty of bypassing lots of small towns and localities when travelling in Australia, but to be fair, it’s a huge country to discover.

Hahndorf Resort – Caravan Park in the Adelaide Hills

This is one caravan park that is very aptly named, it is all resort without the resort price that other parks sometimes charge. Hahndorf is only half an hour from Adelaide on the south eastern freeway and that is the direction I would urge people to come into the town from, with a caravan in tow.  To come in from any other direction means driving through the main street of Hahndorf which takes nerves of steel, due to the narrowness of the road combined with parked cars on both sides of the road, continual flowing traffic and pedestrians crossing the road. Believe me I lived in this area for many many years and the popularity of this town is always like this, any time of the day, week and year.

5 Top Beachside Caravan Parks in South Australia

My home state of South Australia is blessed with around 5,000 kilometres of coastline and with two gulfs there are plenty of beaches to visit. Depending on where you stay you can be greeted with the sun rising from the sea at east facing beaches or witness some spectacular sunsets when the sun dips into the sea in the west.

Most Australians tend to gravitate to the beaches during summer holidays and with more than 1200 beaches on mainland South Australia, there is space aplenty if you know where to go and beaches to suit everyone. Whether you are looking for surf and action water sport beaches or something more sedate for swimming, kayaking or paddle boarding, there is a beach in South Australia perfect for it.
