It took around 90 minutes for club members to arrive in the beautiful Brisbane Valley village of Esk. As each arrived, the same thing happened - they found their camp site and in the smallest time settled in and relaxed. This was rallying Gold Coast Club style.

When I made it there on the second morning of the rally, I found a club in a stunning location soaking up the beauty the valley offers, showing the world how to enjoy great company.

43-metres tall they stand, the three white silos of Kingaroy. Blank and implacable, they appear hulking and mysterious. You’ll soon discover, however, that these silos are filled with tiny treats that drive the local economy – peanuts.

Teaser: 

The forests of magnificent Tingle Trees reaching for the sky and miles of inlet waterways protected from the impacts of man by legislation. According to Gary Muir, a local tour guide, the three poles are North Pole, South Pole and Walpole. When you hear him talk, it is clear from his passion which of those he thinks is the most important.

Why You'll Love Kalbarri

Be seduced by Kalbarri’s magnetic charms.

When I was about 10 years old, in 1966, we went on a family holiday in what even back then was an old Kombi. Early in our holiday from Perth to Broome, we ventured down a long, dusty corrugated road that branched off the Great Northern Highway. At the end of this bone-rattling track was a tiny rock-lobster fishing village located at the mouth of the Murchison River. Kalbarri back then wasn’t much, but must have left an impression for I have been back many times since. It is easy to see why Kalbarri has drawn me back countless times since.

Where are Australia’s best places to go? Where are the spots you simply must not miss?

Of course it’s impossible to state categorically that one place is better than another, especially in a country as beautiful as Australia. As they say, it would be like trying to decide on your favourite child.

 

However, based on tourism statistics, feedback from our forum, opinions from travellers with 40 or more years of tarmac under their tyres, and a healthy dose of our own dreamy fantasies (of the travelling kind, mind you), we’ve decided on seven places to take top billing on our RV-Tours-To-Kill-For list.

A Whale of a Time

Cheyne Beach retains the simple delights of a bygone era.

The southern coast of Western Australia is a diverse mix of river mouths with sandbars, granite cliffs that plunge into the sea, rocky headlands and sweeping deserted beaches. This diverse mix of scenery is particularly obvious between Albany and Esperance.

 

Located only 70km east of Albany is the tiny fishing village of Cheyne Beach. Being off the main drag and so close to Albany, many people plant the foot and hurtle past the turnoff. By not taking that turnoff they are missing out on one of the south coast’s truly delightful locations.
