Happy camping,

Well here in Canada petrol is at $1.22 AD ($1.30 CAD) per litre, so we're pretty close.

Thanks for the pics.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for your comments, much appreciated.
If anyone is interested in the way we camp and the variety of camper trailers and what we do to them here`s a forum link. You have to join to see the photos and trip reports, already have a few members form your side of the world. If it`s not appropriate to post a link to another forum or it`s off topic I`m sure the mods will let me know.

MySwag.org The Off-road Camper Trailer Forum - Index

Also links to a couple of our trip reports if anyone is interested.

Capucine, We have a friend in Queanbeyan and my sister in Canberra and planned to visit them on a month long trip about 10 days ago. On the 2nd day the Ranger asked everyone to pack up as there was going to be a "serious weather event happening" and as it was covering the lower half of New South Wales and into Victoria we had no option to return home.

Everywhere we planned to go has been flooded and some campgrounds have been ruined. It has been a terrible time for a lot of people this last couple of weeks with thousands of homes, businesses and agriculture land and crops being flooded. We can always plan another trip it`s all the people who are going through it that I feel for.

Cheers, Robyn.

Felicia and Jeff,
I`ve added a couple of photos to show how tame kangaroos are around camping areas. They can however be dangerous if approached as they kick with their hind legs but you rarely hear of anyone being attacked.

No can do with the ferry, but we do have a unique one. Thousands of people travel to Birdsville in Central Australia every year for the Birdsville Races. Usually it`s a desert but when it floods this ferry comes into service. I haven`t been there myself but some hardy campers make the trip every year.

Cheers, Robyn.

Hi Andy,
There is only one legit dealer in NSW. A few people have imported them personally and they are not to Aussie standards.
We have met someone who cuts the drawbars off and welds it on the other end so the door is on the correct side.

I`ve sent a pm with more details.

Cheers, Robyn.
