    Nothing like the open road in a Camper van
     Having had one holiday in a camper van exploring the beauty of the South West of WA last year I now look longingly at the many campervans that pass through this town. Nothing like a holiday where you take your home with you, stopping where the fancy and scenery takes you. Sort of like adventuring with comforts of home and a cup of tea always at the ready. read more

    Its the journey not the destination
    "It is not a race" I said to my partner driving our Apollo Camper on the road to Queenstown, South island New Zealand .  "Lets just stop and have a break near this lovely lake." The spot I had chosen was ridiculously picturesque with half a dozen stately poplars,  painting the lakes' edge with rust red and golden leaves. Alpine reflections in the mirror like lake surface completed the picture. We had packed our campers' fridge with some good supplies... read more

    why i'd love to win this trip
    My life as of lately has mostly consisted of reading about exotic places, and dreaming about one day making it there to see them all. Australia is on the top of my list, for the people, the land, the animals, the culture but most importantly the experience. I've been born and raised here in Ontario and can honestly say i have never been anywhere more then a few hours away, I've never been on a plane, I've never experienced any... read more

    From above isn't the same
    On a flight from Brisbane to Perth with my family of 5 which includes my wife and 3 boys aged 9,7 & 3 I was sitting with master 9 looking out the window of the plane and pointing out the features in the land and watching the roads below pass by quickly. Master 9 then announces quietly to me " Next time Dad, can we take our time and drive to perth ? everything down there below us is disappearing to quick.... read more

    Apollo Motorhome Outback Adventure
     We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Apollo Motorhomes Rental Office in Darwin to swap our tiny rental car for a 2 Berth Camper Van. It was much larger than we were expecting being the size of your average minibus and had all mod cons including a toilet, shower, gas cooker, fridge, microwave, sink, and plenty of storage space for our clothes and food. It even had a TV! The living area was large with more than enough... read more
