When it comes
to caravans, the pop-top concept has been around for decades. They were born out of a need for a caravan to have a lower height for safer towing and a
caravan that can be stored under most car ports. Having an extendable roof section was always going to introduce some drawbacks. These, however are
very marginal these days due to roof lifting aides and better storage solutions to name a few. This article discusses the various types of pop-top
caravans and the features to look out for.

At sunset on 31st May, David Martin and Michelle Jacka were married on Cable Beach, Broome, Western Australia. Their two daughters, Leah (6 yrs) and Chardae (3 yrs) were Flower Girls and Ring Bearers. The private wedding ceremony was attended by a small group of friends and their families from Perth.
The casual ceremony commenced with a private camel ride along the beach followed by the exchange of vows conducted by celebrity marriage celebrant
Lionel Yorke (Yorkie). Mr & Mrs Martin returned to Perth on Saturday 2nd June. Please feel welcome to view
Michelle’s Member Gallery for wedding photos.
Last week’s saltwater crocodile lurking off
Cable Beach in
Broome brings a timely warning to campers that crocs are increasing in numbers and
fisher-people and campers should understand the risks when holidaying in tropical north, and north west Australia this season. The dangerous estuarine
(saltwater) crocs are opportunistic predators and they DO inhabit fresh water, especially now they have an increased population meaning greater numbers
are being forced further upstream into marginal habitat.
So, anywhere in
Far North Queensland, the
Kimberley, or the
Top End, campers should be conscious and wary of crocodiles. Always camp 100m back
from the water’s edge, and if staying more than 1 day, ensure you do not teach the lurking croc your daily pattern of behaviour, for they quickly
learn animal/human patterns of movement and this is when they are most likely to strike.
