Australia’s only fully off grid caravan park: Fowlers Bay, South Australia

by CAMPS Ambassadors, Overland Exposure Fowlers Bay is very small coastal town that has sand dunes, a jetty, some whales in the right season and that’s about it! We did stay at the ONLY FULLY OFF GRID CARAVAN PARK in Australia and the owners were lovely. If you plan to stay here, just remember they run everything off grid so just like you and us when free camping need to be mindful of water and electricity use. The playground was fab and the Ringneck Parrots were chatty too! There is a communal fire pit that is lit each evening. OH

Camps Australia Wide - The caravan mirrors are back on!

Our hybrid from Mountain Trail RV

The caravan mirrors are back on! We’ve already had the question: what is a hybrid? When you are talking hybrid vans – it is a combination. It has the comforts of a caravan plus the access and easy towing of a camper trailer.  Because the van is only 2 metres wide (literally all bed) – it means its tyres follow the tyres of our 4WD. Heatley felt the difference as soon as we left Long Point RV in Burleigh Heads, QLD.  Another bonus of the width is that it will fit snugly beside our house. Something our previous ‘normal’ width caravan
