We strongly recommend that you use soft, foldable 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.
Living Equipment Included - This vehicle is equipped with all your kitchen and basic camping equipment. If you are flying into the Sunshine Coast or are a vistor, we have linen/bedding available to hire. If you are local, you may prefer to bring your own. Other than that, pretty much all you need bring is your clothes and personal items.
Arrangements can be made to place grocery and fridge food into the vehicle if you arrange to purchase from a local supermarket and have delivered to us in time for your hire. Both Coles and Woolies provide online shopping services and deliveries. Please discuss this option with us in advance of your hire.
