Environmentally Friendly Caravanning

South Australian beachI think if you ask most caravanners, the biggest motivation for caravan holidays is to enjoy the slow travel lifestyle including being immersed in all aspects of the country.

Welcome to Kondoli ~ Victor Harbor SA

There’s a lookout area that you can drive into as you enter the town of Victor Harbor on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia that’s often overlooked by those of us familiar with the area.

From here you can also see Granite Island and the causeway that leads to it, and the hills of Victor Harbor with houses sprawling in all directions.

Driving from Adelaide to Melbourne (A8 Western Highway)

Grampians National ParkThe drive from Adelaide to Melbourne can easily be done in a day but with so much to see along the way why not take your time and break up the trip with an overnight stay along the way. You can take the longer scenic route to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road or the shorter inland route on National Highway A8 which also affords great views of country Australia.
