Now in its sixth edition, Explore Australia by Caravan and Motorhome has everything you need to know about caravan and motorhome trips in Australia, whether it’s the dream lap or just excellent weekends away. This ever-popular caravanning bible has been completely revised and updated, with details on the routes to take, the best things to see and the most stunning places to park your caravan, wherever you want to travel in Australia. To make it even easier to find the best place to stay, each section now contains a list of the greatest caravan parks specially curated by the author. Every listing contains handy symbols that have all the important information, such as whether the park is dog-friendly or has a dump point available. There are also symbols to make it easy to see at a glance if a park is a member of a major caravan organisation (BIG4, Top Tourist Parks, Family Parks and Kui Parks). There’s also a detailed guide to preparing yourself, and your caravan or motorhome, for time on the road with tips on packing, safety, towing and how to find the best camps and the cheapest fuel.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Brendan Batty has spent the last ten years travelling Australia by caravan, motorhome and four-wheel drive, both in his role as editor of a number of Australia’s premier caravanning and camping magazines, as well as plenty of family trips with his wife and their three young children. The longest of these trips, over nine months, covered roughly 25,000km and took them to some of the most amazing places in Australia. A passionate lover of older caravans (his own is a 1981 Viscount Grand Tourer), campsites where there’s somewhere to surf or the fishing is great (or both!), he’s crossed Australia in everything from a beat-up, old Nissan Patrol to the latest, full-featured motorhomes. He’s fixed both on the side of the road with fishing wire. Currently managing editor and owner of ROAM magazine, he’s also been editor of Australian Caravan+RV, as well as a number of magazines on four-wheel driving, camping and camper trailers.
