Hi Glynn?? :-)
There is a growing number of 5th wheelers in Australia particularly on the east coast. Together with many caravans and motorhomes it means there is a growing army of travellers out there. This includes the seniors who are referred to as Grey Nomads - many of whom travel north in the winter and south in the summer.

Caravan parks and free camping sites are plentiful so far but park numbers are reducing as owners grab profit by selling the land for housing. There is a great club for motorhomers - Campervan & Motorhome Club of Australia ().

Cheers and thanks again for help

Interesting, thanks. It's funny how similar things are on different continents.. our migrating seniors are called snow-birds, after the Anne Murray song. They summer in Canada and winter in sunny Florida, USA (since there really is no south in Canada, we use theirs.)
