G'day from downunder

Hi all from downunder Australia. Found many interesting things here in ForestRiver so I thought I best be joining up too. My wife and I and our 2 kids love travelling and have done many trips around Australia in our little 20ft 2500kg van.
We live in country Victoria, about 100 miles east of Melbourne up in the hills on our small property away from the hustle and bustle of the "big smoke"!

Cheers,
Rob

Welcome.

Would love to hear your stories of camping downunder! Pics too!

Curious to know if RVing down there is more American style or European? Or is there a unique Australian style?

Welcome!

are you planning on buying a Forest River product?
i know a few Aussies have imported some FR trailers and i think i heard that some of your RV dealers are selling FR trailers.

Rob, did you know that too many Fosters will make you fall of a horse while on an Aussie outback cookout.

Wowsers, thanks for the welcome guys.
Not to sure what American style or European is? I guess we are more towards the Euro style with dual axle caravans being the most popular although there are more 5th wheelers on the road everyday now.
My family and I like to free camp as much as possible, that is we camp out in the bush away from towns etc but then we will stop in at van parks too on occassion.
Haven't looked at whats on offer to purchase here yet, at present just been researching the andersons hitch as they are now available in Aus and seem to be an interesting product.
Cant say I'm a horse rider, but I do a fair bit of trailbike riding up in the Alps when ever the wife, family and work allow me to get away with a bunch of mates...

I flew scheduled flights from Honolulu to Sydney (Pago, Nadi & Auckland too) for 4 years ('79-'83) and have to say it was the most enjoyable flying of my flying life - Sydney/suburbs were wonderful - now I'm stuck with retirement !.....Bill

Hey and g'day to you! Good to have some input from outside the states to remind us there is a big world out there. Wow, real outback style camping huh? Well, having a little extra luxury is always nice wherever you are. I do look forward to hearing about your adventures.
