Q: Where can you stay to experience tropical islands, historic gold towns, old lighthouses, mighty rivers, dazzling street art and mouth watering seafood all within three hours?
A: Bowen, the heart of the Whitsundays!
And Queens Beach Tourist Village (QBTV), officially the Best Grey Nomad Large Caravan Park in Australia, is the perfect place to base yourself.
From there you can easily experience the myriad of delights of the Whitsunday, Burdekin and Charters Towers reg
They are the perfect post-COVID getaway and the type of holiday usually reserved for the rich and famous - direct access to a pristine beach with stunning views, space to put up your feet, access to world-class seafood and no nuisance crowds or interruptions. Ahh... This collection of 19 low-cost bush camps on SA's glorious Yorke Peninsula offering 275 sites are all available through a single, low-cost permit. The difference is that on this occasion your millionaire's lifesty
Goddess of Abundance! Yep, it’s quite a job description, but apparently Pomona dutifully fulfilled her Roman responsibilities, providing wine for Bacchanalian revelry and copious nourishment for the 4 million people living within the ancient Roman Empire. And her Queensland namesake – a small town in the Noosa hinterland – possesses all the hallmarks of modern abundance. Pomona is a restful place brimming with heritage charm, good food and friendly locals that we found to be
Let’s get it out there straight up…. you can drive your rig right onto this island. No gravel roads. No ferries. No extra cost. It’s a beautiful sand-rimmed uncrowded island with a laid-back atmosphere, plenty of sunshine, pristine waters and two caravan parks. Oh, you want to know its name and where it is? Bribie Island – less than an hour’s drive north of Brisbane on a marine sanctuary known as Pumicestone Passage. We headed to Bribie (the locals drop the word “island”) fro
Are you like me and missing life on the road this festive season? I’m longing for the space and freedom, and I think it’s official – I’m nuts for the Grey Nomad life and the Digital Nomad way. As I can’t hit the road over the holidays, I’ve been mulling over ways to stay connected to that oh-so-sweet feeling that traveling in the moho engenders in me. I had a few lame ideas before coming across one that excited me. I'm going to bake and decorate a Christmas gingerbread RV! Al
The conversation went something like this. Digital Kim (DK): “We want to work our way around the places that will benefit most from the Grey Nomad Awards. Right?” Digital Liz (DL): “Correct. So all we have to do is decide if we’ll travel in a caravan or a motorhome.” DK: “I think a motorhome would be best – neither of us want to learn how to tow a caravan, so let’s just find a motorhome.” DL: “Woo hoo, we’re joining the moho revolution.” DK: “As an adult, have you ever been c
Let’s get it out of the way upfront. Why are we referring to ourselves as pesky little insects that swarm in uninvited to bite the unsuspecting? Oh yeah, it's an acronym we could come to regret. No matter how unfortunate the truth happens to be, the fact is that GNAT is well suited to describe us. This is because we are Liz Rivers (I’m writing this post) and Kim Morgan, and together we front the G-rey N-omad A-wards T-eam. That’s right, we’re G.N.A.T. GNAT CHAT is our team bl
