    Wish List
    The best family holidays are where there is an adventure, and the apollo camper is on my wish list as the travelling adventure holiday mover.  To pack up and head  out onto the highway is the best adventure a family can have. Having kids that have never seen snow I would head to the Victorian slopes to share the experience of cold, wet,snowflakes. To see their faces laughing while having a snow fight, tobogganing and having bad hair days, would be fantastic. I would... read more

    The Great Ocean Road- Staggering coastlines and white sandy beaches, could only have been better seeing it from an Apollo camper!

    Going Troppo
    Last year my partner and I fulfilled a wish to return to Australia after travelling from Queensland to Melbourne in a motorhome a few months before. This second time we travelled 10,000 miles from Perth across to Port Augusta, up through the Red Centre and back down to Perth via The Kimberly. We hired a van through Apollo, having used them in New Zealand and been really impressed. They were always ready at the end of the phone with advice and never minded... read more

    If only I could
     If only I could afford to take my two grandchildren away on a holiday in one of the apollo motorhomes.  We could visit places that we only see on the screen in our lounge rooms.  We could visit the beach for a few days and then somewhere like Carnarvon Gorge and then perhaps the dinosaur museum at Winton because I know they would love all of those places.We love spending time together but all to often the time disappears and... read more

    Kangaroo Island Adventure to celebrate the big 60
    There was no better team than Apollo Motorhomes, Sealink, and Kangaroo Island Tourism to help me to celebrate a special occasion with a very special person. A motorhome holiday provides the perfect opportunity to experience some of nature's best offerings and to enjoy the flexibility of itinerary to coincide with local festivities, gallery and other opening times and to adapt to weather conditions. Easily driven with all the comforts of home and the freedom to be your own tour organiser.... read more
