Back home, safe & sound.

We have had a great adventure catching up with members of "The New Age Tribe" Caravan Group.

We were so privileged to have Bryan & Lyndal fly over from Melbourne, Sharon & Chaz to organise such a relaxing catch up with like-minded caravaners.

We would like to extend a huge thanks to New Age Caravans, Perth, who by no small feat supported our group over most of the weekend. One of our group had trouble with their radiator of his LandCruiser. The New Age Perth boys stopped by the side of the road and assisted fill the radiator water from the hose connected to the tap on the drawbar. That was amazing to see. They ended up towing this couple to Cervantes. And swapped one of their tow vehicles (a work trailer). What an effort! Outstanding.

We were provided a sausage sizzle lunch & bacon & eggs breakfast. Bryan & Lyndal timetabled byo drinks & bbq sessions where we networked and solved the problems of the world.

The New Age Perth staff who consisted of The Owners John & Kay, The General Manager Jocelyn, specialists with technical knowledge, electrician & David, head Salesperson. They were all very supportive, came to each van individually to help with any niggling issues each van owners had and gave advise of how to fix it.
And even handed out some free goodies for each van.

We had a few little things that needed attention. They were the security door was sticking slightly on the bottom, we had a step spring sprung, ensuite window closer had broke, a rivet wasn't holding one of the shower doors locked for transit, our checker plate on the front was looking a bit faded.

We were invited back to The New Age Perth workshop/showroom on our way home. The staff fixed every one of our issues & even polished the checker plate, all for free.

Which other manufacturers offer this kind of specialist service?

We would like to thank The New Age Perth Staff for all of their support. We know where we will be coming when we decide to upgrade from Miss Jayne, our Bilby. David, I'm talking about You.

Needless to say we are home safe & sound from an amazing adventure.

Our next gathering is for Christmas, in November. Looking forward to it already.

Deb & Ian

The Pinnacles, Cervantes

What is the one of the best parts of being associated with a good caravan brand, the service from the dealership. They even cooked breakfast for us today. New Age Caravans Perth were on site to help with any small or large query Tribe members had. Here we see some getting down to business.

On our last day we set off for a walk around Cervantes. Today Synergy were doing some work on the power and we ran the van on gas for the day.

We had a lovely walk along the beach.

On the way back to the park Deborah had to wait with a couple of locals before crossing the road.

We went for a drive to see the Pinnacles. They come in all shapes, sizes + coloured rocks. Amazing limestone formations.

New Age Tribe, Cervantes, Western Australia

We have been a bit slack getting an entry in for this trip. We left Busso after work on Thursday 17th May and stopped at the Pinjarra free camping spot for the night. On arrival we found the most campers we'd seen there on our previous visits. A quick $10 special for dinner at the Premier.

Headed off towards Cervantes, and a coffee/lunch stop at the Moore River rest area.

Further up the Indian Ocean drive we spot Sand Dunes, that Deborah thinks remind her of the pavlova on a merange pie.
