Frequently Asked Questions

Australia - The Big Country


Australia - Europe

Australia - USA

Australia is a large country as indicated by the comparison maps above. In order to enjoy your holiday, we recommend that you research your intended travelling route thoroughly, particularly your travelling distances. It is far better to travel at a leisurely pace and visit the many attractions of Australia rather than spend each day driving long distances. Aim to cover 150 - 200 Kilometers per day and you will experience Australia in comfort.

Where do we camp at night?

We strongly recommend you stay in a caravan (RV) park. Australia has an extensive network of caravan parks in all major tourist centers and most towns. Caravan parks offer excellent recreational opportunities, plus essential shower and toilet facilities. Powered sites enable you to connect your vehicle to electricity. There is usually no need to book ahead, even in peak periods. The approximate cost is AUD 25-30 per night.

Most national parks have areas set aside for camping. There are often shower and toilets, barbecue and picnic areas and of course national parks provide a scenic and peaceful place to stay at overnight. However, national parks do not usually offer powered sites.

Council laws prohibit camping on the side of the road near towns and cities. However, outside towns and in country areas it is generally permitted.

Do I need a special driver's license?

On pick up of the vehicle a full (e.g. nonprovisional) and valid driver's license must be presented in person by all people wishing to drive the vehicle. If the license is not in English, an International driver's license or a valid certified translation is also required. The minimum age to drive the vehicle is 21 years and the maximum age is 75 years.

How long does the battery system last?

All Apollo vehicles have a dual battery system. This means that the engine battery is separate from the battery system used for internal appliances, such as the fridge, lights and water pump. The appliance battery system will last approximately 12 hours when fully charged. The batteries only recharge when you drive the vehicle or are plugged into mains power.

Since the engine battery is separate, if you flatten one of the rear batteries, you will still be able to start the engine and drive. All vehicles have the facility to plug into 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 the television, microwave and rear air conditioning that only run off electricity.

What is supplied with the vehicle?

Each vehicle is supplied with complimentary living equipment (such as bedding, cooking equipment, crockery/ cutlery, bath and tea towels.) Also, each vehicle is supplied with a complimentary Apollo Pack for your first night. The pack contains matches, mini shampoo and conditioner, dishwashing liquid, a sponge, soap, salt and pepper, coffee, tea and sugar sachets.

Also provided are comprehensive maps and camp ground guides. We strongly recommend that you use soft bags instead of suitcases for your luggage. Soft bags take up less room and fit easier into the storage cupboards and lockers in the vehicle.
