Live Cheaper – Plan a Budget Holiday.

20141229_180541We have spent New Year having four days away in the beautiful South West of Western Australia. Borrowing my sister’s popup van we booked 4 night’s at a Manjimup caravan park for $32/night for a powered site. Full use of immaculate ablutions, camp kitchen and gas bbq’s. Wonderful company of other campers and caravaners and had a fantastic New Years Eve party with them all.

Took advantage of the cheaper petrol prices and explored surrounding Manjimup areas, Pemberton and Balingup.

Manjimup Timber museum was very interesting with displays of old logging machinery amid beautiful grounds and with free entry was a perfect way to spend a morning of our holiday.



Big Brook Dam was so serene & beautiful with very good facilities for BBQ & shaded areas.

Only cost is petrol if you seek out the natural attractions in the area you are visiting.

Before we left I went to our local tourist bureau & found brochures & maps for the places we were going to be visiting & were good to keep in the car as reference on our trip.
We took Christmas leftovers, fruit,biscuits with us to save buying food and kept costs right down.
Relaxing little break for us both amongst the majestic Karri and Jarrah trees in our beautiful South West.

Wishing you a Happy New Year.
