If you expect to get reliable TV whilst away from civilisation the best option is Satellite. Complete kits from around $299.00 LINK

Depends how important TV is to you. Remember while travelling your sleeping/waking times tend to change, especially if you are bush camping or moving frequently.
I carried a sat TV set up right around Aussie. It was OK...but we got to the stage where we could hardly be bothered setting it up and using it. We also carried a cheaper $40 aerial which we used in populated areas with a good signal.

How do these work, I get the satellite and the signal issue but is it like pay TV? Do you need a card to get channels?

Matchmaster use to make an antenna call CV13 which was a great travelling antenna, strong and universal.

There currently have a model called DE13 which is a new version of it that I have not seen yet.

Something else to check out if you haven't already is the bible of tv reception, tv across Australia by ABD. Contact email is abd@bigbond.com

Thanks for the reply shaun. Where in nsw would I look to buy one of the cv13 or de13 aerials. Would a caravan place have them or electrical retailers be best. Cheers

The TV Across Australia info is a little dated. Try Site Link or Site Link - The price has doubled since Bob sold it out to Clipsal.

You should be able to get it at a large number of electrical wholesale outlets, ie Gordon Mac's, L&H etc. If not ring Matchmater in Sydney on toll free on 1800 - AERIAL or 02 91536666 and ask for a distributor in your area.
