  1. We have done two tours of Tassie. First one for three months Feb to May - not long enough. Next from Nov to well June as it turns out (COVID). It is expensive to get van and car that size over approx $1,800 to $2,000 return. Not sure what the new prices would be from Geelong though. Secondary Roads are narrow and you have to be organised to do as Sandra suggested, drop van and venture out but worth the trouble. Not sure of the state of free camps and National Parks since COVID. Some were still closed when we left in June 2020. We had a great time, and only missed the West Coast due to stupid fridge (fixed in Penguin). Went for another try and got as far as Waratah but snowing in December so gave it a miss. Certainly not a trip you would regret, you just need to make sure you book far enough out and have your return trip booked. Doesn't mean you can't move it, but if it gets busy and you haven't booked your return trip you have no hope of getting home. We prefer going during day on way over and night on way back. That was when you docked in Melbourne, presume it will be easier at new Geelong facility.
  2. It was late in the day when a fully loaded minivan pulled into the only remaining campsite. As soon as it stopped, the doors flew open and four children jumped out. They began to unload gear and worked feverishly to set up the tent. Next, the boys ran to gather firewood while the girls and their mother set up the camp kitchen area. The camper in the space next to them marveled to the children’s father, “I’ve never seen such teamwork nor a camp that was ready so quickly. I’m impressed.” The father turned to the neighbor and nodded sagely. “I have a system,” he said. “No one goes to the bathroom before the camp is set up.”
  3. Both of these have now been removed. Thank you for notification.
  4. No, can't say we have an our van is nine years old.
  5. If you have previously listed an item for sale and it has sold and still on the 'For Sale" list please advise so it can be removed. Our last clean up was 2017. Thanks

  17. Received this email from Leisa saying good bye to all the Kedron Caravan Owners. 21st February, 2022 To All of the Kedron Caravan Owners / Family, It is with mixed emotions, that after fourteen years, many hair dyes, and wrinkles, I wish to inform you that my time as Receptionist for Kedron Caravans is coming to an end. My last day with Kedron will be Wednesday 23rd February, and I wanted to take this opportunity to let all of the past, present and future customers know how much I have enjoyed working with you over years. I have greatly appreciated the support, acknowledgements, and laughs, during my time at Kedron Caravans. It has been a pleasure getting to know everyone, as owning a Kedron really is more than just a purchase, it is joining a family. The friendships I have gained will be with me for life. I wish everyone Safe & Happy Travels in their vans, and hope that maybe one day, to see you on the road. Kindest Regards Leisa Cook

    Hello fellow travellers , We are organising a gathering at the above festival ( thank you Tony for the suggestion) . Group bookings open in March and I will need an idea of approx number of attendees to advise event organisers. Some information is as follows - Camping on site from Wed 27th to Monday 1st August . If you stay 1 night or 5 nights the fee is the same. - NO powered sites , generators permitted 7am to 8pm - Water taps located around grounds , No hook-up is permitted. - Dump point at Tara Lagoon Parklands next to festival site - Pets permitted on leash in camp ground only , not in festival site unless pet is a camel. Once approx. numbers are known event organisers will allocate the group a code to enable each of us to make the booking. So it would be appreciated if people would reply below (or FB page post) with their intention to attend this festival with the KOG. This is a bi-annual event and last festival had approx. 3000 attendees. Cost of the festival will be approx. $200 for the 5 nights and for all festival event entries. Please refer to their web site www.tarafestival.com.au Regards Rod Lee
