  1. For those of us travelling and keen to get their vaccinations while on the road, I have successfully used the below link. It is an interactive website which allows you to enter some basic information on eligibility first then to find a site near you, or at a specific location where you can get your jab. https://covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility Before there are any arguments on the merits of the vaccination, I am not advocating whether you should or should not be vaccinated. The information is purely for those who want to use it. I do have a view about vaccinati
  2. As some forum items might know, we are travelling from SA to QLD, and mostly camping along the way. Right now we are at one of the loveliest campgrounds you could ever see, Weddin Mountains NP, called Ben Hall’s Cave. The campground is nestled into the mountain range, and is very scenic. Facilities are limited to a drop toilet, and table/chairs at each site. Sites are well spaced, with pine trees and vegetation adding extra privacy. It is free to camp here (yes, really) but there is a one-off $6 booking fee. Phone reception is patchy but doable. T
  3. We are now at Hay, NSW. We are going to the RSL for dinner (they have great Chinese food!) and camping down on the Murrumbidgee just on the outskirts of town. Our camp site has its own QR code to check in! Most spots seem to have one, sited on a little white pole. Before leaving home I downloaded every state’s QR code and have them ready as we cross borders. A lass at the Balranald supermarket said this morning that she didn’t think NSW was using QR codes …. Moral of that story is not to take advice on QR code readers from checkout staff. The cafe certainly required it to checke
  4. This is a great article on an iconic trek which many of us have done. But it’s a good resource anyway. the-great-central-road-drive-from-laverton-to-uluru-with-a-caravan.html
  5. Situated on the shores of Lake Alexandrina, probably an hour or so from Adelaide, this lovely free campground is a very special spot. It’s at S35 50 05 E139 2 46. Near Milang, it is accessed via a 10km gravel road, of which 2km is a bit ordinary. No facilities here whatsoever, just lots of peaceful beauty. Mind you it’s the school holidays starting tomorrow...😄
  6. No, I hadn’t seen that! The poor new owners... Thanks Sandra.
  7. OK, from another forum (Caravaners forum) where a member there pretty much asked the Federal Government responsible agency the same question. He got a response which said: "Thank you for contacting the Australian Government Department of Health.You don’t have to get your second dose at the same location. This includes if you are travelling — even in a different state.Your first dose of the vaccine will be recorded in the Australian Immunisation Register, so your vaccination provider will be able check which vaccine you received (to make sure your second dose is the same) and when
  8. I am wondering if any members are travelling between states in the near future, or far from home, and have to organise their COVID vaccinations somewhere other than home. We will have had our first jabs here at home in SA, but in June, when the second is due, we plan to be far from home. Probably QLD. Anyone had similar queries?
  9. Sandra, you guys are probably experts and able to guide the rest of us! Our plans are to come North from SA, leaving here in May and arriving around Brisbane about mid June. The places we love around QLD (in no particular order) are Lake Tinaroo (Atherton Tablelands); Sandstone Park at Carnarvon Gorge, Lawn Hill, Lake Wivenhoe near Esk, Lara Wetlands.... Many of these may be visited this year. Of course, we do prefer the remoter regions too... We might see you out there!
  10. It’s great to have you onboard Colin and Laura! Our first van was also a Kedron and it is a good start when you have such a wonderful brand. Talk to the factory about the leak...they will be able to advise, I am sure! I hope we see you out and about travelling with your van. chris
  11. ARE YOU HAVING TROUBLE WITH YOUR RIG BEING OVERWEIGHT ? This new club benefit, available exclusively to members via the club shop will be available just in time for the Christmas trip. Just 25 tins stored under the bed will reduce your weight by 112.5kg and you will no longer have to carry all that water in your tanks. Don't miss out stocks are limited.
  12. We are at Onkaparinga’s Pink Gums campground for a couple of nights. It is right on the edge of the McLaren Vale wine region, and not that far from the city. But it feels nice and peaceful. There are 11 sites in all but not all fit a caravan of our size. Most do, though.. We are nicely settled in, as you can see.
  13. Kimbo's wife Ned has posted of the family's loss. Kimbo meant so much to so many people and was a larger than life character. He was a great supporter of the Kedron brand and considered himself to be part of the "Kedron family". I spoke to him on Sunday and he spoke with affection of the many people he met through this group and what they all meant to him. Among his last words with me was a planning out aloud about what he wanted to see happen to his precious Kedron van! Our hearts are heavy today.
