After a short stopover in Singapore, we flew to Australia where our campervan adventure would begin. I had never done a similar road trip before, so I was really looking forward to do this for the first time together with the family. We booked our van fairly last minute, since we also knew quite late that we were going to make this trip. Unfortunately, therefore, many campervans were already forgiven and we just had a select offer to choose from.
In the end we booked the Jucy Condo at Jucy World, a converted bus for which we ultimately paid just as much as if you had booked a larger model far in advance. Just a little note: be prepared for this when you want to make a camper trip, it does make a big difference when you book it way in advance or last minute. Nevertheless we were still very happy with our choise and were looking forward to this great adventure.
We flew to Brisbane, where we could pick up our green buddy close to the airport. A short introduction by the rental company made us trust that everything would be alright, let’s hit the road! Lara had her comfortable place in the back and we side by side in the front cabin, our South / East coast drive could really start now.
Our first stop was planned in Noosa, a small town on the Sunshine Coast. Known for its beautiful beaches, surf, national park and lively town centre. We stayed at Noosa River Holiday Park, a campsite located along a recreational lake and suitable for all types of campers. Whether you would be there for a week, two weeks or a single night.
The campsite was well equipped and provided with a range of facilities, including a playground, public kitchen and laundry room. We did our shopping at a nearby small shopping centre, which was a short minute walk from the campsite. Don’t expect too much from this part of the town, but the close walking distance to the supermarket makes it perfect.
For a bit more fun and atmosphere, you can head to the beach, a popular hotspot for families, backpackers and water sports enthusiasts. We spent our days mainly on the sea and the surrounding streets where you can find lots of nice boutiques, coffee bars and eateries. If you love burgers, be sure to stop by Betty’s Burgers, not just a favorite with us, but also a big hit among locals.
Noosa provided a good start to our trip in Australia. We didn’t only became familiar with our mobile living, we also met a lot of other traveling families and couples like us, who had recently started their journey or had been on the road already for a longer period. It’s lovely to hear their stories and share experiences with each other.
