Welcome! Travellin’ Lite has grown from a simple diary of our travels around Australia and New Zealand to become a website with independently researched buying guides of all things camping and outdoors, travel itineraries and; very shortly, our own “Travellin’ Lite Outdoors” brand of products.
There’s no better place to be than the Aussie outdoors. Doesn’t matter if it’s the bush, the beach or the great outback. It has a beauty and a charm all of it’s own. We are blessed in this wonderful country of ours to be truly free to experience each and every bit of it.
Travellin’ Lite was born out of the concept of ‘less is more‘. You don’t need a $250,000 RV to get out there and enjoy the natural wonders of Australia. Some good gear, the right attitude and perhaps a small sense of adventure is all you need. Young or old, it’s all doable.
We’d like to think we can help you in some small way to get out there and enjoy.
Dorothea Mackellar, in her timeless poem ‘My Country‘ captured it like no other –
“I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains,
I love her far horizons,
I lover her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!“
All of the posts on this website are researched and written from scratch. We can’t review in person every single product, but we do market research using online buyer reviews and forum postings to make recommendations to help you. It takes hours to do this, but it means you don’t have to.
We hope you find it helpful.
