Camper Trailer Australia - - FAMILY TOURING ITINERARIES -

GET­TING FROM the Vic­to­rian bor­der to Can­berra is re­ally easy. Fuel up, thread your rig in be­tween the lines of semi-trailers on the Hume High­way, and drive for 3½ hours. Done. But where’s the fun in that?! Why not take the kids through iconic Aus­tralian High Coun­try where they can see first­hand the places that have helped shape the na­tion? Take the back­road from Al­bury along the Lake Hume fore­shore to Jin­gel­lic, then to Cor­ry­ong be­fore pick­ing up the Alpine Way through Kosciuszko Na­tional Park to Jind­abyne. Cruise into Can­berra along the Monaro High­way. Not one for win­ter – but it's great for the rest of the year.
