We have toured on five different occasions Andy, using Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide Perth and Tasmania as our starting points.

Due to the horrendous cost of hiring a motorhome with insurance, we hired a car and stayed on campsites using self catering units, eg "Cosy Homes",
https://tinyhouses.net.au/tiny-houses-australia/. Most campsites have them or similar and we found them much cheaper than hiring a motorhome.

There is so much to see in all these places but the two highlights of our visits, were driving along The Great Ocean Road and our tour of Tasmania.

Itís interesting you thought the cost of hiring a MH to be high. I looked and the cost for what we would call a 2 berth PVC works out at around £1000 for 14 days. I doubt I could get hotel stays for that, plus of course we can self cater for many meals (at times to suit us) and thatís a hefty saving as well.

But I will certainly look at the link you included as I am not going to rule anything out.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
