Kirstie Bedford is an annual visitor to Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula, here she shares her reasons why it's a great place to take your pooch.

There’s usually a point when you're travelling to your favourite holiday destination where you feel your whole body relax. It might be seeing the rolling hills, the smell of the air, or simply veering off the main highway.

Calling in at Cleve

One of the first things you’ll notice when visiting the regional town of Cleve, on South Australia’s Eastern Eyre Peninsula, is its rich agricultural surrounds. In every direction are fields of wheat, barley, canola and peas with a likely pasture of sheep grazing the day away in the shadow of the impressive wind farm at Mt Millar.

Portsea is unquestionably the 'leafiest' suburb on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula... And to that extent, there's an oft-quoted – albeit flippant – reference to this upper-crust domain showcasing a veritable conga-line of imposing clifftop mansions that are home to the rich and famous. I quote verbatim: “See how the other half live”.

Some people baulk at the prospect of buying second-hand while others swear that buying used avoids most of the wallet-smashing depreciation that new motorhomes can be affected by. But there are other options, such as ex-rental RVs like the Kea Discovery - only one of the most popular rental motorhomes around! These RVs are built tough, simple and with ease of use in mind and it is this value that is often overlooked.

No Place Like Narrandera

Date Posted: 7th October 2020

Roughly halfway between Sydney and Melbourne, at the junction of the Sturt and Newell Highways in New South Wales, you’ll find Narrandera Shire, an agricultural town rich with more than crops and wool production. Fuelled by the Murrumbidgee River, the region is made even more charming with its tree-lined streets and heritage buildings.

Shoalhaven Heads, NSW

From my vantage point at Two Figs Winery, at the top of the Mount Coolangatta foothill, Shoalhaven Heads is like something out of a children’s fairytale.

Green rolling hills, vast golden fields dotted with cows and horses, rows of vines, and a river winding through the middle of it.

Touring the treasures of Tumbarumba

Touring the treasures of Tumbarumba

Author: Emma Ryan

Date Posted: 7th October 2020

More than just a convenient halfway point between Australia’s biggest cities, the NSW high country town of Tumbarumba is a wonderful destination in its own right, particularly for the caravan and motorhome crowd.

Its low-cost campsites are amongst the best you'll encounter, and you'll be richer for the decision to veer off the rather mind-dumbing Hume Highway. But Tumbarumba doesn't stop with great parks for motorhomers. It also offers to interesting history, wonderful local produce, award-winning wine, coffee as good any city barista can muster and a bounty of surrounding natural wonders.

The Wild Mid West Coast of Western Australia

The Wild Mid West Coast of Western Australia

Date Posted: 7th October 2020

The Mid West coast of Western Australia is full of colour, grand sweeping landscapes and wonderful people. It’s a destination where you’ll definitely want to linger longer.

The beaches here, so isolated they are nesting havens for rare birds, have to be some of the best kept secrets in coastal camping in the country. While the region once relied so heavily on the fishing industry and mining, tourism is now its much-needed economic mainstay.
