Introducing the Lorrimer family - Justin and Bec with their three kids – sons Jack (4), Billy (3) and one year old daughter Charli.
In December 2015, the family packed up to go on a trip of a lifetime, travelling in their 23-foot Jurgens Caravan all around Australia.
They have had so much interest in their adventures that they have created a Facebook page – Trip in a Van
– where you can follow them on their travels, including a recent 10 night stay at Top Holiday Park - Robe Lakeside Tourist Park
We asked ‘Trip in a Van’ mum, Bec, to write about her stay at Lakeside Tourist Park and capture it on video and she certainly has delivered – here’s her story (and what a beautiful family they are).
Our second stop from Warrnambool on our 'Lap Of Oz' is Robe SA. We had heard lots about its beaches, its amazing fishing and its great town centre rich with history.
We were excited to stop in here and it did not disappoint.
Robe is a beautiful coastal town about 4 hours’ drive from Adelaide or Warrnambool depending on which way you’re headed.
It was originally a Shipping Port for the wool industry way back in 1847. It has a charming town centre including a couple of historic Pubs that have been operating since the 1800's.
We had an Adventure packed week here in Robe.
Our activities included checking out Robe itself, finding out about its history and checking out the Heritage buildings around the town.
We had an amazing day trip to Beachport via the 4wd tracks along the beach and through the Little Dip Conservation Park.
A few afternoons were spent on the sands of Long Beach, which is only a few minutes drive from the Lakeside Tourist Village and it's 4wd accessible.
The relaxed atmosphere and flat hard sands really reminded us of Cable Beach in Broome, WA.
“OUR TIME IN ROBE HAS BEEN PEERFECT AND THE ‘LAKESIDE TOURIST PARK’ IS A GREAT BASE TO EXPLORE!!!”
Next stop: the Lorrimer family (with their pet dogs) are off to Top Holiday Park - Victor Harbour Beachfront Holiday Park.
