Our second stop from Warrnambool on our Lap Of Oz is Robe SA. We had heard lots about it beaches, its amazing fishing and its great town centre rich with history. We were excited to stop in here and it definitely didn't disappoint!!
ROBE, SA is a beautiful coastal town about 4 hours drive from Adelaide or Warrnambool depending on which way your headed. It was originally a Shipping Port for the wool industry way back in 1847. It has a charming town centre including a couple of historic Pubs that have been operating since the 1800's.
We stayed at the fantastically maintained Lakeside Tourist Park, located on the waters edge of Lake Fellmongery and only a short stroll into the main street of town and all that it has to offer.
The Park itself is well laid out, roomy and expertly maintained with lush lawns and landscaped gardens. The caravan sites are spacious and we easily manoeuvred our 23foot Jurgens through the park no worries. The camping area is great and has a heap of sites with plenty of shelter and shade. The newly appointed owners/managers are a lovely couple who are only to happy to help out with anything you need and some great advice on what the area has to offer.
We had an Adventure packed week here in Robe. Our activities included checking out Robe itself, finding out about its history and checking out the Heritage buildings around the town. We had an amazing day trip to Beachport via the 4wd tracks along the beach and through the Little Dip Conservation Park.
A few afternoons were spent on the sands of Long Beach, which is only a few minutes drive from the Lakeside Tourist Village and it's 4wd accessible. The relaxed atmosphere and flat hard sands really reminded us of Cable Beach in Broome, WA.

Airlie Beach! What an iconic Australian destination. Known for its tourists and backpackers, beautiful beaches, nightlife and the laid back vibe! It's also the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef, this flourishing hub is the ideal base for some adventure!
We stayed at the BIG4 Airlie Cove and it was Perfect.......
We based ourselves at the BIG4 Woodlands Holiday Park which is a 10 min drive just north of town. It's a huge park with great big caravan sites and amazing facilities for the family. It's a mecca for the kid's.
We've arrived in the beautiful tropical destination of Mission Beach.
Situated smack bang in-between Cairns and Townsville. Only 1.5hrs from either. We have based ourselves at the BIG4 Beachcomber Coconut Holiday Park in South Mission Beach which is right on the water.
How do we stay alert on the road, without drinking coffee??
With the amount of kilometres we travel in our touring lifestyle, this is a question that we get asked a lot!!!
CAPE YORK AND THE OLD TELEGRAPH TRACK!!
For this Adventure, we teamed up with Oztrail Leisure Products and they supplied us with some unreal products that we used on our trip to the top of Cape York!
This amazing rugged property is located in The Kimberleys, about 85km from Kununurra, WA on the Gibb River Road. It has some spectacular scenery, full of adventure and atmosphere! We absolutely loved our 4 night here and can't wait to go back!
For Justin and I, being in our early 30's we think it's an ideal time to travel! As the saying goes 'travel while you're young and able', and we couldn't agree more!
Amazing scenery, Epic coastlines, Wildlife, Food and Wine!
