Denver is one of America’s most exciting destinations. Colorado’s capital city has many exciting arts, culture and sports attractions. It’s also surrounded by a beautiful landscape of snow-capped mountains.
When you book your next trip to the city and hire a motorhome from Denver Airport and park it at one of these camping grounds.
Moraine Park Campground
This campground is set amongst pine forest in the awe-inspiring Rocky Mountain National Park (pictured), which is just over 100km from Denver. Many people head out here for a day trip in the summertime, but it’s a shame to not spend at least a […]

The Final destination in our loop through the top end in our Maui Motorhome was Litchfield Park. Just 80 minutes south of Darwin, close enough for a day-trippers and 244km north of Katherine straight up the Stuart Highway.

Pine Creek, Katherine Gorge and Cutta Cutta Caves
Before leaving the Jabiru area we stopped off at Mirrai Lockout, parked up the motorhome and a 20 minute walk up to the hilltop was rewarded with panoramic views of across Kakadu to the Arnhem Land escarpments on the other side of the East Alligator river.
We had thought about Jim Jim Falls however as it was accessible only via a 2 hour journey on an unsealed road it was off the agenda with our motorhome – no motorhome or campervan rental can be driven on unsealed roads (unless entering a camping […]

Arnhem Land and 20,000 year old Australians
Day 4 was spent on tour in Arnhem Land and for me this was the absolute stand out of our entire trip – if you can only book one tour in the top end – make it this one. You will not be disappointed in what was a memorable and an amazing experience.
The tour is organised by Lords Safaris (www.lords-safaris.com), one of only 3 operators permitted by the Land council to enter Arnhem land. Yes it is expensive at $810 for 2 adults and 2 children, however worth every cent. You experience […]

Day 3 Darwin to Kakadu and Yellow Water
We collected our motorhome from the Maui depot on Bombing road in Winnellie (around $35 from the city). Allow 45 minutes for the staff to show you around the vehicle and explain how everything works. There’s DVD you can watch and we were also given a USB stick with the video. A team member will go over the vehicle with you to check for any existing scratches or damage and there’s no harm in using your phone camera to snap these just to be totally sure.
Now is also the last opportunity […]
