We own a Bailey Caravan and are members of the Bailey Owners of Australia group.
In March 2019 one of our group members, Bernie, organised a group trip through parts of Victoria and New South Wales and it was called Rivers Mountains and Seaside! This is Australia March 2019
The trip it included 19 Bailey caravans travelling from Bright (Victoria) over Mt Hotham to Lakes Entrance, Mallacoota, Cooma, Tumut and finishing in Gundagai in 2 weeks time (check out the Google route map)
At the end of the organised trip the group split up and went their own way either back to their home state or continued travelling. We continued travelling with good friends Neil & Sharon to the Gold Coast. They eventually left us in Gosford to return to Adelaide.
Eventually it was just Merrisa and myself who completed our 7 week journey down the east coast of Australia to back home in Melbourne.
This blog covers the adventures which were experienced during this fantastic journey around our great country.

Up the East Coast of OZ to Far North Queensland
Leaving our Melbourne home on June 20 2020. Once the Covid19 restrictions began to lift we packed up and shot off on our next adventure. Heading along the east coast of New South Wales and into Queensland on 17th July. We were extremely lucky with our timing as the Queensland border was re-closed 3 weeks after we crossed it – phew & woohoooo!!!

This trip was with a group of 16 other Bailey caravans for 3 weeks in March 2020. Similar to this trip, this time we started in Broken Hill and traveled through outback South Australia ending up in Port Fairy (Victoria). It began on 12 March 2020 but was heavily impacted by the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic to the pint where it wasn’t completed as originally planned.
