Hi Matt,

Your question is a bit broad to answer - can you be a bit more specific? Are you going up the coast - or inland? How far north do you plan on going? Using caravan parks or bush camping, national parks??

Whatever the answers to the above there is nothing to be scared about as you should have a great time although the weather will be hot and sticky and the beaches will be beautiful.

Just make sure that you are well prepared and that you have done one or two short shakedown trips before you actually set out.

Great advice,as usual, from J & V. Google the places you will pass through to
find attractions & info. I'd suggest you take some form of shelter/awning/tarp
set up in case of crook weather, so that kids can still play, & plenty to occupy them as well. Be flexible & stay "cool" when those little problems arise...& you
will have a ball. One more thing...dont carry heaps of stuff that you can easily
buy anywhere on the road, with a wind up camper space is at a premium...use
it wisely.cheers....oldbaz.
