Ultimate Caravan Trips: Australia is your ticket to #vanlife. This caravanner’s travel bible lifts the lid on 40 of the best adventures you can have on six (or eight) wheels. Organised into state and territory chapters, it is packed with wanderlust to inspire your next caravan trip, from weekend escapes to week-long breaks and multi-destination touring itineraries.

Fancy unhitching by the Noosa Everglades, parking up on the sand on the Eyre Peninsula, or winding out the awning riverside in the Huon Valley? Award-winning author Catherine Best has caravanned across the country with her husband and three kids, and her book spotlights many iconic destinations as well as under-the-radar gems. Get the lowdown on park facilities, when to go, how to get there and what to see and do when you arrive. There are reviews for a mix of bells-and-whistles caravan parks, serviced campgrounds and off-grid sites included, as well as handy hacks for your vanning vacation, and local intel on where to fill your water tanks, empty your toilet cassette and swap a gas bottle.

The only thing this book can’t do is back you into your site – but there are tips and tricks included to ensure you’re not the afternoon entertainment at the local caravan park! Ultimate Caravan Trips: Australia has your fill of beaches, bush, rainforest and red dirt in this ultimate caravanning companion.

About the Author

It was in the backseat of an F100, rumbling across Australia with a three-bunk Millard in tow, where travel writer Catherine Best fell in love with caravanning. She's travelled the world in the three decades since, but nothing compares to touring our big, brown land in a home on wheels.

A former newshound, Catherine has interviewed heads of state, reported from disaster zones and covered elections. But it's standing on Anangu Country, writing about the oldest living culture on Earth that gives her tingles.

Today, Catherine's words fill the travel pages, not the news columns. She loves nothing more than exploring Australia's outdoors with her family, and has finally graduated from the middle bunk to the double bed up front.
