I’m very pleased to say that I have another story in print, in the current January / February 2020 issue of On The Road magazine. Over four pages you can read and drool over some spectacular old cars that were on display at the Victor Harbor Rock n Roll Festival last year. It’s a fun weekend with something worth seeing for men, women and children and it’s held every September in this holiday playground area of South Australia.
A very Merry Christmas to anyone reading this and thank you if you’ve been following my blog this year or supported any of the magazines that I have been fortunate enough to have had stories published in. On The Road magazine has continued to feature some of my stories and I’m grateful to the Editor / Publisher Gregg Haythorpe and Deputy Editor Sue Wyeth for supporting Aussie writers.
Summer holidays are on the horizon and a lot of holidays are being planned involving heading to the beaches and coast to make the most of long hot days ahead. Many in South Australia will look towards Yorke Peninsula and a relaxing break in any one of the many small towns dotted along the coast. If you do visit the peninsula you should plan a journey to the bottom end, and Innes National Park. Innes is a park filled with breathtaking coastal scenery, picture worthy (instagrammable) roads and tracks throughout, wandering wildlife, eye catching wildflowers, accessible shipwrecks and even…a ghost town.
The May / June edition of On The Road magazine has my story on the South West Rocks region of New South Wales and a number of places to visit while you’re there. One site I found surprising was Trial Bay Gaol.
The Lets Go Caravan and Camping Show has finished it’s run in Adelaide and now it ups and moves off to other states around Australia. I’d recommend going for a visit especially if you haven’t been to one for a while, the number of new vans and camper trailers is quite mind blowing. To be able to take a look inside so many new vans and campers on offer these days will leave you wowed. Whether you are in the market to buy or not it gives you a huge amount of information on prices, value for money and finishes you might like when the day comes that you are ready to invest. It really does all come down to where you are planning to go, what sort of road conditions you want your van to handle and personal preferences for interior layouts.
The ‘Let’s Go Caravan & Camping’ show is on now in Adelaide and you still have today and over the weekend to attend. It’s on at the Wayville Showgrounds just out of the city and is open from 10am – 5pm every day until Sunday 17th of February. The entry price of $17 for adults seems a bit steep but you will get your money’s worth in not having to traipse all over town to see everything caravan and camping. What I love about these shows is that you can see everything in one convenient location and do your comparisons when it comes to different makes and models of vans especially.
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.
