Australia's Nomadic Hobohome

campervan hire australiaGavin and Tracey Murray live and travel Australia in a large converted 1968 Bedford bus called Hobohome, which is also what they call their website (at least you can find them in one place online, at www.hobohome.com). It's a great scrapbook and a living document of their travels, with daily images uploaded so you can see where they are.

Says Gavin, "In February of 2003 we decided that we had had enough of the ordinary - we wanted some adventure in our lives. So we decided to put our careers on hold, bought a 38 foot bus and took to the road with no preconceived ideas about where we would travel or for how long." The pair have been adventuring around Australia since then. "We call this the motorhome lifestyle," they say on their website, "some would just call it a nomadic lifestyle."

They've also posted quite a few articles on the practicalities of motorhoming through Australia, on anything from cooking to getting internet coverage -- check them out here.

If you're planning to see Australia via motorhome or campervan, chances are you'll be hiring rather than converting a bus like these guys did. If you're looking for a great deal on campervan hire in Australia, go to http://campervanhireaustralia.com.au
