Campers, motorhomes, high-tops… the rental jargon explained!

Australia and New Zealand have pretty much the same kinds of campers and motorhomes as anywhere else overseas. However, depending on where you intend to travel and what you need from your relocation , it’s a good idea to know what each type of vehicle looks like and what extras they come with.

by Brooke WhyGoAustralia | August 2nd, 2011 Some of the major cities in the country of Australia are quite a feat to get to and between when not taking a plane.

Lucky Alice: The next aircraft boneyard!

Lucky Alice Springs? Not so sure if the locals feel that way. ALICE Springs has been selected to be the first aircraft “boneyard” outside the US. Functioning in the same way as  Pinal Airpark in Arizona, it will cover an area of 110ha and will house 300 planes in the Northern Territory, taking planes being decommissioned from service, that have been  stripped of all their parts like engines, electronics and wiring to be re-cycled. It will also be a place where aircrafts as big as the A380...Read More
