You’ve gotta love the Aussies! They sure are a social bunch. We were reminded at our very first caravan park in WA that it’s one of the things we truly love about Australia. We walked into the communal kitchen area and within 2 minutes were offered a beer, glass of wine and invited to sit down and tell the tallest tale we could. Luckily, if you have been following this blog, you’ll know we came armed to the teeth with stories.
Another great example of the social scene at caravan parks was the soup and burger night at a caravan park near Kalbarri National Park. Everyone in the park gathers around a couple fire pits and chomps on fresh burgers and lovingly home made soup cooked up by the staff. By the end of the evening you know that Joe has 3 grandsons and has surfed his whole life. Or that Mary laughs like a Kukaburra after a few glasses of wine.
Most importantly you know that Aussies love to make new friends, old or young, foreign or local and they’ll welcome you with a few bevies, a friendly slap on the back and “Good-on Ya Mate” for good measure.
