At Hippie, we’re lucky enough to have the help of fantastic interns from Germany, the Netherlands and beyond. Our current intern Marsha, from the Netherlands, has really enjoyed her time at Hippie, so when we asked her to put together some of her campervanning tips, she jumped at the chance. Here are Marsha’s tips for music festivals in Australia:
Now let me ask you a few questions. Do you like partying? Do you like to have a good time with your friends? Do you like to take your mind away with your favorite music? Then the festivals in Australia, which are held throughout the whole year, are the one and only thing you can’t miss out.
Most of the festivals start in December/January when the summer starts. DJ’s from all over the world are attending and even people from all over the world are going to these events. The weather will be nice; a lot of people around you, the music is loud, drinking your favorite drink without worrying about who will drive home, camping and much more fun!
If you like Reggae and Dub music then the Reggaefest in Byron Bay is perfect for you. If you don’t know yet where you would like to spend new years then maybe you should consider the Pyramid Rock Festival or the Peats Ridge with your friends. Most of these festivals are going for more then 1 day and the tickets include free camping. How else is a better way to spend your festival days then with a Hippie Camper? You don’t have to build up your own tent, or worry about how to cook your food.
Hippie Camper; perfect for two people to sleep in and nice to chill in with a few friends after you have partied hard at the festival. Time to rest and sleep! In the morning cooking some nice breakfast, and wash the dishes. All is possible with the Hippie Camper.
A very important tip is to bring an esky along as you probably will not be able to plug into mains power. This will limit the time for the fridge to work in the Hippie Camper. That is when the esky comes in handy. Another useful tip is to keep in mind that you book early at Hippie Camper. The earlier you book the better, and if you would like to save some money it would also be cheaper. This will reduce your total costs. Another very important thing is to be safe and check the vehicle before you leave. Make sure everything is stored well, and the van is locked properly.
Furthermore it is all about enjoying and having a good time! No worries as they say in Australia.
