From rookies to seasoned roadies Adele & Wayne have learned, laughed and loved every minute of their journey as a ‘family who caravans’…

When we started out we were completely clueless all things caravanning! Pre-kids, we were hotel people, we loved luxury and the thought of staying at a caravan park would have never crossed our minds.  Post-kids we discovered a whole new world of adventure along with a whole new respect for the Australian holiday park and camping industry. We were converted. We hope you might be too! If you aren’t you don’t know what you are missing – and we’d love to share with you!

Our caravan is our little slice of escapism, we love to take regular short breaks and this is the perfect fit to our day-to-day life. There are no hotels to book, no gear to pack. We love the ability to escape at the drop of a hat. Whatever style of trip suits your family be it epic ocean-to-ocean or just a mini-break we look forward to getting to know you.
This website is our online shop for our Travel Journals & Log Books, but also a destination to find some ideas and tips, handy links and a curation of the things we love. THANK YOU so much for joining us on this adventure. We hope you re-discover family life just like we did!

Welcome to the journey! Adele, Wayne, Ashlee & Kate

Who else stuff’s up making scones? For years, my scones were always flat and rock hard.  Despite my mum trying to teach me, they always turned out terrible and in the end, I just gave up! When we are away, I always delight in ordering scones, jam & cream....
