After months of being confined to our own neighbourhoods, Australian caravanners are itching to hitch their caravans and hit the road, ready to explore our beautiful country once again.
As of today (June 1st), – for most states – it’s time to go caravanning, people!
Caravan and camping grounds have implemented COVID-19 hygiene guidelines making them ideal destinations for those that are ready to travel. And who wouldn’t be?!
Tourism Research Australia has found that more than 500,000 Australians may take a camping or caravan trip in the next two months...
Just because we can’t travel right now doesn’t mean we can’t dream, right? Planning your next big adventure may be the project you need to keep you going during this time and give you something to look forward to next year. Overseas travel may be a longer-term dream in the current climate, so why not get out and see our big, beautiful country first.
The big one to tick off the bucket list for many caravanners is the Big Lap, which is exactly that - a big lap following the 15,000 kilometres of Highway One around Australia.
Bamboo really is a thing of wonder - versatile, sustainable, eco-friendly, super strong… you can even eat it. In fact, there’s not much that you can’t do with it.
We give you 12 bamboo facts you never you knew you needed…
1. It’s a grass. Yes, bamboo is actually a grass, not a tree, and is the fastest growing land plant in the world, growing up to 1 metre in 24 hours. (You could LITERALLY watch it grow before your very eyes…) Bamboo reaches maturity after only 3 to 5 years, unlike hardwood trees, which can take decades! 🌱
