Waeco Products
Australia
By Rachel Power

Undertaking a four month journey around Australia with two young girls requires careful planning and preparation. Our WAECO Products have made our camping life much more enjoyable. CoolFreeze CF-80 The most essential item is our CF-80 fridge/freezer. The biggest benefit of the CF-80 is the ability to combine a fridge and freezer in one unit. Having a freezer has enabled us to stock up on meat and other frozen products on special saving us a great deal of money. With the children, it has also meant we can carry food items that can be prepared quickly to satisfy hungry tummies.   The large 80 litre capacity has enabled us to carry a huge range of foods and drinks such as frozen meat, ice creams, ice cubes, juice, margarine, deli meats, left-overs, beer and wine, all at appropriate t...

Spotlight on- Tanonga Luxury Eco Lodges
By Lisa Monk

Tanonga Luxury Eco Lodges Imagine a region the size of Tasmania, one that stretches from Whyalla to the Nullarbor, from the Gawler Ranges to Port Lincoln - with nearly 2000kms of unspoilt coastline, it is home to sheltered bays, surfing beaches, fabulous sailing and fishing. Imagine exploring from the limestone cliffs to the national parks, watching whales and dolphins and enjoying the birdlife that abounds… well don’t imagine it – visit the Eyre Peninsula and see it all. Another treasure tucked away into this magical region is Tanonga Luxury Eco Lodges. Its aboriginal name means ‘sweet water’ and refers to the permanent springs and billabong on the creek, which runs through the historic 200-hectare property.  This is purpose-built luxury accommod...

Safety tips for travelling in Australia
By Lisa Monk

Those of us who live in Australia grow up understanding the joys, dangers and safety rules that make it such a great place.  However, many visitors to our country find Australia an alien, but starkly beautiful country, and they have little or no understanding of the best way to stay safe and enjoy their time here. A few very simple rules can help to make a visit to Australia a safe and pleasurable experience, and Tourism Australia has a brochure available for download that lists safety tips in a variety of languages. Driving tips One of the first things to remember is that speed limits are strictly enforced in Australia, more so than in many countries overseas.  Generally, when driving in urban and suburban areas, the speed limit is between 50 and 60 kilometres per hour.

Travelling with Teens
Australia
By Lisa Monk

We know that our teenage children can be delightful, exasperating, funny, sullen, adventurous, shy, talkative, slothful and manic – and sometimes that is just in the space of an hour!  All these moods are magnified when it comes to travelling, be it in Australia or overseas, as teens and parents are forced into one another’s company without a ‘get out of jail free’ card, such as time with friends. Travelling overseas with teenagers tends to be a better experience for a number of reasons, such as the brilliant entertainment systems now available on most flights, menus that let them eat things they like, resorts that have activities that cater for most age groups and the “wow” factor.  So let’s concentrate on surviving travelling in Austra...
