Relocating New RV’s in the USA and Canada

Every year Cruise America and Cruise Canada offer one way trips in their brand new RV’s and at reduced prices to clients. This allows them to move their new stock to the locations that they are needed in for the summer while allowing clients a chance to cross these two countries at a fair price. It is early in the year – typically April and May and the weather cannot be guaranteed.

However it is a great way to travel and at a quiet time of the year! Peter has done this 3 times over the past years and would recommend taking advantage of the offer. However, there are limited numbers of vehicles and they go on a first come first booked basis.

Please contact us if you like the idea of freewheeling across either country and would like more information.

This wild and remote region of Western Australia lends itself to a four-wheel drive trip, with unpaved roads, untouched wilderness and stunning scenery. The best time to go is in Australia’s winter, between May and October; temperatures are more moderate with low or no rainfall, meaning warm days and clear nights.

Description

The best time to go is in Australia’s winter, between May and October; temperatures are more moderate with low or no rainfall, meaning warm days and clear nights.

Day 1: Arrive Broome
Arrive into Broome, the ‘Pearl of the North’, for a 2 night stay. Broome began as a pearling port in the late 1880’s, and has developed into a charming seaside town that still produces some of the world’s finest pearls. Visit Cable Beach; comprised of 22 km of beautiful sand with warm Indian Ocean waters edging it. At nearby Roebuck Bay, between March and October when conditions are just right, the magical illusion of the Staircase to the Moon can be witnessed.

Day 3: Fitzroy Crossing
Collect a hire car this morning and drive the sealed road to the typical outback Australian town of Fitzroy Crossing. From here, explore Geikie Gorge National Park; an impressive waterway with abundant wildlife, soaring weathered cliffs and caves with ancient rock art.

Day 5: Halls Creek
Continue on the sealed road to Halls Creek – the first place in Western Australia to discover gold. Halls Creek is a bustling town, and is the gateway to both the World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park Bungle Bungle Range, which is best seen on a scenic flight, and the Wolfe Creek Crater – formed when a giant meteorite crashed into the earth thousands of years ago.

Day 7: Kununurra
Head to Kununurra today, continuing along the sealed road. Close to the border with the Northern Territory, this township is located on the banks of the Ord River and is a hub for agriculture and mining. Take a cruise on Lake Argyle, explore Mirima National Park or fish for Barramundi on the Ord River.

Day 9: Home Valley
Begin the journey along the unsealed Gibb River Road today – the reason you need a four-wheel drive! Your destination today is Home Valley Station, an outback oasis at the foot of the spectacular Cockburn Range. A working cattle station with indigenous owners, Home Valley Station offers a wide array of activities and tours, as well as nightly campfire entertainment.

Day 12: Mount Elizabeth Station
Continue along the Gibb River Road to Mount Elizabeth for a two-night stay. Explore the plentiful waterholes, and their surrounding Aboriginal rock art.

Day 13: Mount Hart
Drive west, stopping en route at one of the many waterholes for a dip, and on to Mount Hart Wilderness Lodge. Located within the King Leopold Conservation Park alongside the Barker River, the Mt Matthew, Annie and Yellow-man gorges are only a short drive away.

Day 14: Windjana Gorge National Park
Head to the Windjana Gorge National Park for an overnight stay, and take a trip to explore spectacular Tunnel Creek.

Day 15: Derby
Complete the final section of the Gibb River Road today, arriving into the town of Derby, located on King Sound, for a two-night stay. From here, take a scenic flight to the Horizontal Waterfalls – a massive tidal water movement rushing through small gaps in high cliffs to form a horizontal waterfall, or to the Buccaneer Archipelago – a thousand rugged islands with beautiful beaches, rainforest and mangroves.

Day 17: Broome
Return to Broome for your onward or homeward flight.

Region: Alaska

Alaska, whilst part of the USA, is a unique destination, with a mind and feel of its own. Towering cliffs of glacial ice, tens of thousands of years old, snow-capped mountains, thickly forested slopes and deep fjords, make this a distinctly different experience. Many areas provide havens for wildlife – bald eagles, Humpback, Beluga or Orca whales and seals are frequently spotted together with bears and other land and water based creatures. Re-discover the Goldrush era, or simply marvel at the determination of the hardy souls that first settled this wondrous land. Whatever your choice of travel whatever the boundaries of your comfort zone, call our experts for advice and guidance.

Western Australia

With 12,500 kms of coastline, 12,000 species of wildflowers, 26.4 million sheep and lambs and just under 2 million people, Western Australia is a destination in its own right and is Australia’s best kept secret.

This itinerary traces a laid back tour around South Australia, with time for some wildlife, golf and wine tasting. Add in a little messing about on the river, a swim with the sea lions, and some geological interest as well…

Queensland by Rail

Queensland covers a vast area and distances can be deceiving. Although a self-drive itinerary is an excellent way of exploring individual parts of the region, the sheer distances involved can make it difficult to explore all of the main sights without being there for a month or two. Therefore a great way to see more of the state in a fairly limited timeframe would be to travel by rail.

Located in the north west corner of Western Australia, this is perhaps one of the more untouched parts of Australia, with rugged wilderness terrain, pristine coastlines and spectacular waterfalls.
