    We are camped in the South West Of WA, just South of Margaret River, in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. The campground is called Jarrahdene. This is a drop dead gorgeous spot, set among flowering banksias and vines and ferns. Quite a few of the sites fit a good sized caravan and we have a nice big site with the usual wooden table and chairs and fireplace. Nearby are toilets and a covered kitchen with gas barbeque, and a dump point. And both Margaret River township and Augusta are short drives away. Equally important, we have reasonable phone and internet reception. The only problem for some of our brethren is that it being a national park they do not allow dogs. I feel so lucky to be in such a lovely spot.

    ** Be aware ** We ordered a Chinese takeaway from a local place (I won't name them) just been to pick it up and as I was driving home, I heard the bags rustling and moving!!WTF??!!! I thought what the hell is that. Has something got in the bag, I thought I could see a little pair of eyes peering out at me. I was driving so I leaned forward, picked up the bag, put it on the passenger seat and there it was again, more rustling and little eyes looking out behind the prawn crackers, I thought its got to be a rat or a mouse or something, so I carefully pulled the bag down ... And there it was ... ... A Peeking Duck!!!

    I would like to say a big thank you to the Committee, and the President Tony for organising such a memorable AGM. It was a great few days and Kilkivan Bush Caravan Park was a fantastic location for it to be held. It was good catching up with the members new and old ...................."old" ....meaning long term (maybe). Well done everyone. Cheers Steve & Kerry

    Cannot thank Tony and committee enought for organising a top gathering. What a great group of people. Pity had to leave a day early and didn’t get a chance to talk to everyone. Hopefully will do over the following years.

    We are at a lovely bush camp about 3 hours East of Perth, WA. It has flushing toilets, a free gas barbecue and stove top and water. Lovely spot. And we were joined by our wonderful friends Karen and Paul Slater from nearby Merredin. Karen is our forum’s hardworking Webmaster...

    You may remember at our last AGM we made a donation to Jandowae Lions Club’s Drought Appeal. Please see attached photo, it is a letter of appreciation to Norma Curd (Lions Club President) from a local recipient of monies donated. Great work guys!

    And we have just spent four days at Shannon NP, South of Bridgetown. Lovely area of forest and ferns. The camping area has a new area with large and open sites on terraced areas on a gentle slope, and an older area among the trees. We chose the middle ground, near trees and vegetation but out in the open for solar panels. Hot showers and flushing toilets nearby.

    Gosh it looks like it was a great time was had by all at the KOG gathering and AGM this weekend. President Tony Heat has put a massive amount of time and energy into organising this event and he is to be congratulated on it. These photos were taken by Glen Gall, who was at the gathering.

    We had such a great time. Thanks Tony and the committee for all their hard work. At one of the Happy hours Graham and I were talking about caravan safety checks in Queensland and he gave me his email so I could send him the information. Unfortunately, email information and red wine did not work very well and I have been unable to contact him. So, for Graham and anyone else that may be interested, this is the link to the safety check website. I see that they only have a wait list for Toowoomba left this year but the dates for 2019 will be released in January. Nick and I found the experience really worthwhile and we were given a copy of all our weights. There are no fines given for being overweight or anything else that might not be right. https://www.caravanqld.com.au/free-safety-check-days/

    Hello Tony and Irene, In the past we have received a book, chopping board and vegetable knife, both which have been well received. We also have received other gifts that have not been so useful or enjoyable. As some live in their vans, space is also an issue. I personally always enjoy something we can eat or drink. 🍷🍷🍫🥜🍾 Look forward to meeting you and all other members attending. Cheers, Sandra and Clive

    Hello fellow Kedronners. We have just started on a 12 months or so trip around this great country. Our first night was spent at a great little country town in Victoria, Underbool. The community provides a rv rest stop with showers, toilets and power. If power is used the cost is $10 a night. A lovely small town and great camp. Yesterday we moved a bit further North and are at Yanga NP, at a nice spot near Balranald and overlooking the Murrumbidgee River. After months of cold or freezing weather in Tasmania it is is lovely to be warm for a change. The rough plan is to head to Western QLD to cross the Plenty and Donahue Highways to Alice Springs in about four weeks. From here at Yanga we will travel to Griffith and stay at the lovely Lake Wyangan. If you see us on the road come and say hello; our names are on the back and front of the van....yes, I know it is a bit twee, but a friend did the decals so nicely we had to use them!

    Hi, we picked up our beautiful compact van in March and took it away for a trip to Northern Queensland. We love getting away to explore new places but work does get in our way at times. Hope to meet some of you on the road somewhere / sometime. Tony & Irene

    Welcome to the forum Ian. You would be choosing one of Australia’s best vans if you choose a Kedron. The vans are super strong and reliable, and the Gall Boys are such wonderful people to deal with. Let us know how you go with the purchasing of a new van. chris

    Welcome to the group, I’m sure you will have many hours of enjoyment with your Keddy, no matter what your tow vehicle is (providing all your tow weights etc are legal). Some of our members tow with Iveco, Mercedes, Isuzu, Nissan, Fords, Chevy etc, personally we tow with a Nissan Y62. Hope to catch up with you somewhere in this great country. Sandra and Clive

    Two aliens landed in the Arizona desert near a gas station that was closed for the night. They approached one of the gas pumps and the younger alien addressed it saying . . ."Greetings, Earthling . . . we come in peace . . . . Take us to your leader"The gas pump of course didn't respond.The younger alien became angry at the lack of response. The older alien said, “I’d calm down if I was you"The younger alien ignored the warning and repeated his greeting, again there was no response . . .Miffed at the pumps haughty attitude, he drew his ray gun and said gruffly "Greeting Earthling . . . We come in peace . . . Take us to your leader or I will fire"The older alien again warned his comrade saying, "You probably don't want to do that, I think it will make him mad""Rubbish", replied the cocky young alienHe aimed his weapon and opened fire . . . . There was a huge explosion.A massive fire-ball roared towards him and blew the younger alien off his feet and threw him in a burnt smoking mass about 200 yards away into a cactus patch.Half an hour passed . . . .When he finally regained consciousness, he refocused his three eyes, straightened his antenna, and looked dazedly at the older, wiser alien who was standing over him shaking his big green head . . . ."What a ferocious creature!" exclaimed the young fried alien . . ."He damn near killed me!" "How did you know he was so dangerous?"The older alien leaned over, placed a friendly feeler on his crispy friend and replied . . ."If there is one thing I've learned during my intergalactic travels, you never mess with a guy who can loop his manhood over his shoulder twice and then stick it in his ear!

    Hi all, Arrived here this afternoon, made to feel very welcome in this friendly town. There are thirty plus van and motor homes here, well set up area here at the showground. Lyn Astill is here in her motorhome, she is trying to get to Kilkivan if the planets align. A couple that Clive & Sandra Saunders meet on their recent WA trip John & Karen Siddle are here also in their TE, working on them to join, unfortunately due to geographic difficulties they won’t be able to attend Kilkivan this year. The organisers here have done a great job, barefoot bowls this arvo and dinner at the local bowls club, a local farm tour tomorrow, rodeo tomorrow night. Sunday local touring, entertainment at the pub on Sunday before the footy final and a camp oven dinner 🥘 The local area is very dry......maybe not as dry as some of the country Annie and I have seen in the last fortnight.....but believe me these people are doing it tough. Funds raised this weekend are being distributed to those in need by the local Lions Club. Photos of amazing trash, treasure, collectables, antiques and some really amazing rare stuff worth LOTS at this local property we visited this morning.....four shed’s of it and so much outside, lovely welcoming family.

    A fundraising caravan muster for drought relief is being held on 29 September to 1 October. The organisers have provided our group with a flyer which they have asked us to distribute to our members in the hope that they may be interested in attending one of the events. Given the enormity of the drought and its impact, this is a worthwhile initiative. The flyer is below.

    An update. The springs have arrived. Hallelujah. They only took 11 days to get to Perth from Brisbane. Val drove down from Merredin to pick them up and got home about 4pm. He was greeted by me saying I thought a fuse had gone on the solar panel system as we had had no power coming in all day from the roof solar panels. So he got out of the car, exhausted, and had to fix the fuse. It never rains but it pours.

    We have arrived at Gem Tree NT this morning, after crossing the Plenty Track from Boulia. We enjoyed great weather, and mostly good conditions. There was a rough patch which slowed us down. Here is the summary of the road condition. There is 216 kms between Boulia to Tobermory. Mostly flat and relatively barren country. The first stretch of about 60 kms was bitumen, with small sections of good gravel. We let down the tyres about 50 kms from Tobermory. Last 15 kms before NT border is mostly bitumised with short stretches of gravel in between . About 40 kms from Tobermory was roadworks being done, for about 20 kms or so. From Tobermory to 380 kms from SH was very rough, with corrugations and swales of bulldust. This was slow going and generally we sat on 50 kms an hour for almost all that stretch. At the 380 from the Stuart Highway point there was a good graded section. The bitumen started about 80 kms from the Stuart Highway and then continued all the way to Gem Tree.. About 60 kms West Of Tobermory we came across a Kimberly Karavan on its side and skewed across the road. A single axle van, and driven at a bit of speed (it was going pretty fast when it overtook us and the driver later told us he was now aware he was going too fast), it had hit a bump, pivoted in the air and collapsed on its side. As he had a swivelling hitch, the towing vehicle was stable and unaffected. The driver was remarkably adept and seemed unaffected by the accident. Together with a couple of others who arrived on the scene shortly after us, the driver unhitched it, winched the van back upright with a huge ‘crunch’ and then rehitched it. It was drivable, which is a testament to the van’s strength I guess. He said he would return to Tobermory and then assess his options. I took a number of photos of the van in case he needed it for insurance purposes. One of the photos shows big rocks all embedded into the side of the van wall! Apart from that little incident our trip was unremarkable; oh, we did get a flat tyre which Val will repair in Alice.

    Hi Guys, If you do happen to travel the Oodnadatta Track, There is a caravan park at Leigh Ck which is Ok and the pub has a great feed too. There is also another van park about 5 kms past Leigh Ck called Copley. It too has a van park and the pub there has a fantastic (country pub) feed and there is a good pie shop there too and is famous for their Quondong pies. I would recommend staying here over Leigh Ck. Make sure you plan a night at Farina Station. It is only about 70kms from Copley and there is 28 kms of dirt starting from Lyndhurst. There is not a lot to see around Lyndhurst. (Lyndhurst is actually in the middle of Farina Station). Faria Stn would be one of the best camping areas is SA Outback Donkey showers and flushing loos and grassed camp sites. If you don't have timber, you can buy sleepers from the owners Once at Farina Stn head to the camp ground and set up as to can walk to all the sites of interest (the ruins, cemetery,old railway bridge). The owners are Kevin and Anne Dawes …………… say G'day if you see them as they are really great people. You may even find that the bakery is open. If it is, it has the best cream buns in the world. The next stop to think about is Coward Springs is a great overnight stop or you can detour at Maree and head out to Mulcoorina Station. It is a beautiful spot but you will have to backtrack (but worth it if time permits). Turn right about 2kms west of Maree and travel 50 kms (all good dirt roads) It is beautiful. It has a large waterway and plenty of bird life. When you get there you will come to the small toilet block, look to your right and you will see a single date palm in the distance. Just past there is a beautiful camp spot at the very end of the road and has plenty of room to turn the van around. You have to take your own wood for the fire. You will have to back track for this spot too. The next spot along the Oodnadatta track is Coward Springs …………….. a must. It has a thermal bore pool and is wonderful. You can have fires there also On the way to William Creek there are a few things to see along the way if you choose.William Creek Hotel is a must for lunch and then onto Oodnadatta. Oodnadatta to the hwy is the Painted desert and it is spectacular. We also lived in Alice Springs and travelled it extensively and know of a lot of beautiful locations that are "not so well known" and very worthy of a visit. Guys I hope this helps and if you need any additional info , give us a call as we have extensively travelled and worked in the whole area you are looking to travel in and have a lot more info if required Hope it can help you Steve

    Hi John The simple answer is that is what Kedron vans are made for. The latter XC5 has a slightly better suspension but it will always come down to tyre pressure and speed. You won’t go wrong with either of these vans, XC3 or XC5. cheers merv

    After twenty years with our unbreakable and very wonderful Kimberley Kamper trailer-tent, we have decided that in our sixties we are now grown up enough to have an onboard bathroom, and a hard roof when it is pouring! We were in the queue for a Kimberley Kruiser E-class but, as most will know, Kimberley are now in liquidation. We have a number of close friends with Kedrons who cannot speak highly enough of the vans and the company, so we are now on course for a CP5 Compact. To any owners of the CP5 Compact - we are flying up to meet Paul Willcocks on Sat 25 August 18. If, before then, you have any comments, feedback, or can help with the sort of 'intelligent questions' we should be asking, we will appreciate you making contact with us. Moving from a compact 900kg low- centre-of-gravity trailer to a large two tonne box will be quite intimidating, so all help, advice, suggestions are welcome. (Will be towing with our 100-series petrol Landcruiser). Thanks in advance to any CP5 Compact owners who have any advice to offer. cheers, Graham and Liz. (Terrey Hills NSW)

    Hi Graham & Liz, We have a compact that we only picked up in March this year. Before that we towed a 1 tonne 33 year old Millard Micro. Yes the van is heavier and we have noticed a weight difference but our compact is easy to tow and we are getting used to it. It's first trip was a four week adventure north to Cooktown and via the Bloomfield track. Our 79 series cruiser towed it without a concern. We love our compact - we have the combined shower/ toilet model and have found that very workable, great kitchen and heaps of storage. We put bike racks on the front box and love that. We would recommend the compact and we think you will love it also. Oh and no question is stupid as I think we asked heaps!! Tony & Irene

    Well, really not a photo to use, but we have had a good day here at Port Dennison. The sun was shining all day, the van is a little cleaner, van maintenance and the washing has been done. Had a lovely fish dinner (caught off Broome), didn’t catch anything today, now trying to keep warm. My well dressed husband having coffee and eating chocolate. Life is good 👍👍👍👍

    Hi Tony and Irene. How wonderful to see you have a nice new Kedron and have joined the Kedron family. I am guessing the van is a pre-loved van? Where are you guys when you are at home? Kedron owners are scattered all over this great country and often there are gatherings to attend and get to know other owners. I live in the Barossa Valley, SA although right now we are in Tasmania travelling. i hope we catch up with you in the great outdoors sometime.

    That's another vote for Mary Pools and Lake Ellendale. Also make sure you visit Wolfe Creek Creator and Old Halls Creek. If you require any info on the Kimberley, let me know as we lived in the region for 18 months.................. we also lived in the Alice region for over 2 years, so we can probably help you out there too. Enjoy your trip

    Hi Jaap, I have had my GMC for 6 years now and we have been on the road full time. I would have to say that after a week of driving it, it feels like any other vehicle in regards to bulk. The surprising thing for me when I first purchased it, is that it is only 38mm wider than my patrol. As for the turning circle, ............. yes it is slightly bigger, however it is not extreme compared to the F trucks. In regards to caravan parks, I have always requested a larger site because of the van and I can honestly say I have not had an issue to date. In the six years we have covered just about all types of road conditions as we worked very remotely in Aboriginal communities and have not had any issues. I have never had an issue getting parts come service time either. All the filters are AC Delco which I have found to be a lot cheaper then the Cruiser and Patrol filters. I have found that most Holden dealers stock anything I have required. Oddly enough, I have had many discussions with travellers complaining how hard it is to get parts for main line 4x4's once they leave the cities as nobody seems to keep stock any more. For me, The GMC has been an excellent vehicle for the purpose for which it was purchased. It is an excellent tow vehicle and its 4x4 capabilities has been very surprisingly impressive. Good luck with your research Steve

    Welcome Liz and Graham You will be in very good hands with Paul he has a wealth of knowledge and will probably give you some great ideas. We have looked at down grading from our Top Ender to the single axle Compact and have checked them out at the factory just prior to the Brisbane show. I am sure that they will certainly impress you and you will not regret your purchase. Cheers Merv

    This is a bit late but here are 2 photos from our recent trip to Tassie. The first one is at the Franklin dam lookout. The day we were there it was pouring rain. We were the only silley ones there. The second photo is at Lake Gardener. It is at Moina about 35 km from Cradle Mountain. This spot is a free camp for self contained vehicles. It has no facilities. We used this place as a base for a few days. We were the only ones there. In the stream beside us there were truot and platypus. It was a very tranquil. David

    I could spend time writing all the after sales service I have received from Kedron too, but it would just take too long. I can can sum it up by saying - A Gall Boys' handshake is his word and rock solid. You will not meet a more honorable and honest family. Welcome me to the "Kedron Family".
