We’re all dying for an epic weekend away, but it only takes a couple of expenses to deter us immediately: transport, accommodation… yeah I’m out.
Anyone heard of the ‘van-life’ craze? It’s growing rapidly in popularity – particularly here on the Gold Coast.
Because, I mean, we already live on the beach – and it’s a really good one. Our east coast boasts some of the most gorgeous beaches in the world!
But the beauty stretches far beyond the Gold Coast, just teasing for weekend getaways and quick expeditions.
We’ll head west, north, and south in search of a good adventure, because we’re Aussies, it’s just how we get down.
And if you’re not Aussie, no doubt, you traveled here: Kiwis, brits, canadians, BRAZILIANS, so we know you all like moving around too.
ENTER the best way to get up and down the coast, inland and beyond: LittleCamperCo.
Long (and hilarious) story short, two Irish blokes Kev and Stevie did the Aussie travel leg work years ago, and were literally shocked more Australians didn’t get out in their own backyard (me included).
But when they found out an interstate holiday could sometimes wrack up the same amount of fees as an international one… they put two and two together.
Little Camper Co, is a Gold Coast based company made for travellers, by travellers, which boasts cosy, custom-built vans to create a little luxury abode on wheels.
For just $69 a night (no, that’s not a joke, also no hidden fees), locals can take the comforts of home on the road with them. So that’s accommodation and transport costs sorted.
Their environmentally friendly solar system can power you from sandy beaches, to lush rainforests, all along the road less traveled where other vehicles can’t (sorry power dependent camper vans).
The best part is that because it’s a local service… set up by local guys… who’ve seen a lot of this great nation, they can offer expert assistance and planning for a ripper getaway.
Us Gold Coasters are all about local, and all about travel, and they’ve rapped it up in custom-made, cute as heck, decked out insta-worthy (parking sensors included, thank gosh) van!
One last thing… they’ve got a great (if not slightly British) saying: “Save a quid and get off the grid”. And we’re all about it.
When can we GO!? – book here, but don’t book before me, thanks: https://littlecamperco.com/
