        It's holiday time ....
        I've lived in Australia for 50 years, and really haven't seen, all that it offers and all that's on show, to travel its land is my dream. A visit to Cheapa Campa's, to organise my holiday, hiring an Apollo Motorhome, then booking BIG4 Holiday Parks where we'll stay. With kids on tow and fuel in the tank, we're on our way to see, the beauty and sights of Australia, it's the wide brown land for me. Western Australia, Kangaroo Island, then over to Tasmania's shores, northward bound to the Great Barrier Reef, Oh, how we love the great... read more

        Sealink and Apollo Motorhomes: a winning partnership for KI travel
        During a recent Cellar Door/ Farm gate extravaganza for my wife and I we enjoyed the helpfulness and advice from both Apollo and Sealink staff as we set out in our motorhome to tour one of Australia's last remaining pristine environments, Kangaroo Island. It was obvious that many other travellers shared our plans as we were met by many adventurers in a range of Apollo vehicles as they journeyed to the same destinations as us. The comfort and amenities in... read more

        Apollo Motorhomes made the dream of Kangaroo Island come true
        In 2011 for my wife's landmark birthday (I dare not say which) we hired an Apollo Euro Tourer and enjoyed a thoroughly inspiring adventure to a pristine piece of Oz teeming with wildlife and spectacular scenery. The Gourmet Trail was very rewarding and supplied our sumptuous feasts each day served up in our very own restaurant on wheels. Our dream is now to return to KI or a similar paradise with our daughter and her children to spoil... read more

        We recently had a trip to Tasmania, we hired a Apollo Euro Deluxe.  My Mum has Alzheimer disease, and her memory is going pretty fast, she has always loved camping so my husband and I took her on this road trip to makes some memories before she forgets who we are.  We had 11 days touring around the Island, the country side was lovely, white poppies, pyrethem daises, orchards and vineyards.  We camped out a lot in free camping spot had open fires and cooked potatoes in the coals. We did 1,500 km which probably doesn't seem much but as the roads are very... read more

        Who cares
        While on a holiday near Alice Springs we were on our way out to see Uluru.  It was a freezing day and we passed a man walking with two camels.  Stopping to talk to him he gave his apologies and said he would rather not talk as it was too cold so we headed off on our adventure.  Two days later we were heading back and it was a glorious day and saw the man again heading in the other... read more

        Jayco Nightmare
        Dad hired a rusty Jayco, that should have been the warning, It tipped when we got out of bed, every single morning! A puncture outside of Uluru, cost us two new tires, When we complained to the company, they swiftly called us liars! The mattresses were mouldy, the fridge wasn’t cold, I remember every horrible minute, even though I was ten years old! Yet I’d love to do it all again, in an Apollo Motorhome, And do it bloody properly, and leave Jayco well alone! ... read more

        New Zealand Honeymoon in an Apollo Camper – Heaven or Hell?
        In March 2012 two newlywed Brits headed off on a 30 day road trip Honeymoon around New Zealand’s South Island. For weeks we argued deliberated long and hard over the plethora of campervan options, (I wanted the 6 berth deluxe motorhome equipped with entertainment system, spa bath, heated towel rails etc, whilst hubbie was sure that the lower priced family car with deluxe mattress in the boot would be more “cosy”). Eventually we settled for something in the middle: a 2 berth... read more
