We have always loved the outdoors - camping with 2 children in some great spots less than 6 hrs from home.
Buying an offroad caravan was the next step for traveling with a few more comforts & be able to stop where we wanted without the reliance of having to use van parks.
Our 1st 'shake down' trip was to a van park in Tewantin to learn about our new 'home away from home' in Oct 2010. The experience taught us many things including how not to cook a roast in the oven - too much mess unless we use an oven bag! hahaha.
Tewantin is close to the Cooloola National Park (Great Sandy Nat Pk). Getting into parts of the park required us to engage the 'pootrol' into 4WD. We had fun driving in the slush.
Neurum Creek Bush Retreat near Woodford, taught us how to live without 240v power in Nov 2010. We have 3 solar panels & 3 deep cell batteries that should provide us with enough 12v power for the fridge, lights, TV etc, providing we have sunshine on some days. An inverter is used to power up electronics like laptop, phones & cameras

Rainbow Beach camp ground at Carlo Pt was our last 'shake down' trip. Rainbow Beach is situated near Gympie & is set on the edge rainbow coloured sand cliffs, overlooking the pretty Rainbow Beach down below.
