      Hi Karen,

      Brighton caravan park is really nice (actually in Kingston Park near Marino though not Brighton!). Its right on a sandy safe beach, playground for kids, cafe, boat club with bar etc. Really lovely spot. I haven't actually stayed there so can't comment on the actual cabins but we go down there a lot.

      Hi Jay and Marie, tell me more! I'm intrigued, never considered renting a van and driving around - that would be fun. Would it work with a 20 month old baby and a 7 year old? I'd love to knwo your thoughts and where abouts in Manchester you are. You can always private message me if you like. By West Beach are you referring to Adelaide Shores? we looked at that site and it looks lovely but a little pricey. As we are only staying for a week, thought we might try and keep the cost down a little, then we have more in our funds for our permanent move.

      Please tell mw more about the rental and where you drove it? Are they easy to drive? fully equipped?

      Cheers, Karen

      Hi Karen & Jon, sorry for late reply, DSC_0007.jpgDSC_0399.jpghere's a couple of pics firs the camper van, this one sleeps 6 but is comfy for 4 http://www.maui.com.au/motorhome-hir...pervans-forest
      The second picture is standing on the road bridge at Henly beach over the Torrens outlet, 20 mins walk up the beach from west beach. the camp site I referred to is Adelaide shores on west beach, sorry about that. We are in Stretford dispersing our belongings ready for the life swap..

      I think your young one would be ok in a van as its just like car in the front, so baby seat would be no problem. anyway have a look at the link above they do lots of vehicles with good info. It cost us about 2500.00 for nearly 3 weeks which included fully comp insurance. it wasnt a cheap trip all in all we went through 7000.00 including flights, our kids are older and were classed as adults, so its not a cheap do. the whole process has cost lots as im sure you are aware. In fact we are risking everything we have worked for the last 20 years, but we considder it a gamble worth taking !!!

      The van is basically a merc sprinter van fully converted, automatic gears and a doddle to drive on the open roads, 2.2 diesel and reasonable on fuel. Its a little more tricky in the cities but their on the same side of the road as us, so not a nightmare.

      We travelled the Great Ocean Road from Victoria to Adelaide, then the western highway back visiting various places including Alarat and Ballarat. Either of these routes could be done in 1 very long day, but we split them over several days, stopping at attractions on route, twelve apostles ect. Have fun.
      I have loads of pics newspapers ect from our visit. if we can help we will. thanks Jay
