Can I travel at night?

Traveling through country areas at night is not recommended - due to the large numbers of large native animals that graze on the roadside after dark.

Where can I camp?

Australia has large numbers of campgrounds offering powered and un-powered campsites at very reasonable rates. Booking ahead is usually required during school holidays and long weekends.

What can I see and do?

Most towns and cities have a “Tourist Information Centre”. These centres are a valuable source of information about what to do and see in the local area. Campgrounds usually provide tourist information literature.

How does the vehicle battery system work?

Byron Bay Campers vehicles are equipped with a dual battery system. This means that the battery used to start the vehicle is different from the (appliance) battery that powers the fridge and interior lights. The appliance battery system will last approximately 12 hours when fully charged. The batteries only recharge when you drive the vehicle. Since the engine battery is separate, if you flatten the appliance battery, you will still be able to start the engine and drive.

All vehicles have the facility to plug into mains  electricity. When you plug into electricity in a caravan park all accessories automatically run off 240V electricity rather than the batteries. You can then use appliances such as hair-dryers, etc, that only run off mains electricity.
