If you consider life without a mobile phone these days, it would be pretty darn difficult. Mobile Phones have advanced dramatically in the past 15 years. Back in the early 2000’s the ideal phone to have was old trusty Nokia 3330 and the best way to pass time was playing the “snake” game. Or even the pink colored Motorola flip phone, fitted with a camera to take pictures was the “in thing” at the time. Oh how time has changed, now days if you don’t have the latest IPhone or Samsung with the entire social sharing apps you’re not up with the happenings of the online world. With phones continually advancing and with a wide range of apps on the market, how do you know which app is the best for you on an Australian Road Trip. Well here is our selection of the best apps to have for your Australian Road Trip Adventure.
We live in a regional community, and we both know the challenges that local businesses face. How can you attract more people to the town to live or visit? The Yarriambiack Shire in the Wimmera/Mallee region of North West Victoria came up with a fantastic solution to bring more people to the area. That being the Silo Art Trail. Continue reading
Before we start talking about the Melbourne Star and taking the journey on the Giant Wheel in Melbourne, the biggest hot tip we can give is to purchase your tickets ONLINE! If you want to save over $10 per person, then take the time to book online through their website and find cheaper options through bargain websites Groupon or Scoopon. We found that we actually paid more when you just rock up on the day.
There is no doubt, we love a beer and there is nothing like dropping into the local pub for cold one. When driving the Australian country side, we love calling in for a “frothy” at any roadhouse or town. On our visit to the iconic Silverton Hotel in Outback New South Wales we were never going to walk away disappointed.
On our visit to Central Australia in 2016 we did the most of the West MacDonnell National Park over a 2 to 3 day period. If your fascinated by rocky ridges and spectacular gorges with inviting waterholes then put this place high on your to do list when you are next visiting the area. Continue reading
Plantation Campground in the Grampains National Park in Victoria, Australia is personally one of our favorite free camping spots. Not only does this place have significance in Wayne’s family life, its truly an amazing National Park to explore. Continue reading
As we said Goodbye to an memorable 2016, we started planning for 2017 and what adventures loveyourtravels will go on next. Euston in NSW, Australia is a quiet little town nestled on the Murray River. We had visited Euston before on our journeys back home from Mildura, however we had never experienced a stay at the Euston Riverfront Caravan Park.
There is a few ways you can get to Central Australia, Fly, Bus or Drive yourself. Either way getting here takes time and money! If you’re looking for a few days to go easy on the hip pocket, getting around via 2 feet and a heartbeat is the way to go!
Central Australia has many walking trails on offer, some ranging from short distance with some being well over 10km with some serious hiking involved. The walking trails are a great way for you to not only see Central Australia but get up close to these mammoth monoliths. When you are ready to set off and explore, our best suggestion would be to take a backpack packed with sunscreen, food and plenty of water. It also doesn’t hurt to wear a good hat and lather up the sunscreen as the harsh Aussie sun can do some damage. Oh and you might want to bring along a Fly Net otherwise you will go insane with those pesky flies!! Continue reading

New Year’s Day 2017; A great way to start the year off on another loveyourtravels adventure. After staying the night at Euston Riverfront Caravan Park, Wayne gave me the option, do we go to Mildura or take a trip to Balranald for the day.
My thoughts were whilst I would love a trip to Mildura, I had never been to Balranald. I really didn’t even know if there was anything there to do or see but you never know unless you get in the car and go! Balranald here we come!! Continue reading
On our trip to Central Australia in June 2016, we made a list of what we call “The Red Centre Essentials”, they are must have items that you need to have packed for when you visit here. Continue reading
