Welcome to Grey Nomads Australia

Grey Nomads Australia’s aim is to share the passion, share the knowledge and share the excitement of life on the road.

We cannot stress enough how wonderful it is to determine a destination, hook up your choice of BYO accommodation and just go for it. There is nothing more satisfying than becoming your own personal tour guide and seeing Australia at your own pace.

Grey Nomads Australia’s website is designed to provide easy access to information, is built by adventurous people who live and love the lifestyle, and encourages members to contribute their valuable input. After all, Grey Nomads Australia’s members are the ones out there doing it, experiencing it and loving it.

Join us and make Grey Nomads Australia your ultimate information centre. Discuss everything from wheel nuts to Wineglass Bay by interacting with fellow grey nomads via our forum. Read and enjoy each other’s fun and adventures in our articles or buy or sell something of interest in our classifieds section. Come on board and meet the Driving Force Discovering Australia.


Wheel Estate

When on the road, do you notice fellow nomads have a sticker emblazoned across their  BYO accommodation stating something like ‘The Wandering Wilson’s’, ‘I-Lean’, ‘Overdraft’, or ‘Gone with the Wind’?



One of the most important things when you’re on the road is having the ability to stay in touch with your family and loved ones. These days most of us wouldn’t be without a mobile phone as we make our way around the wide brown land.

Modern smart-phones can do so much more than making phone calls and sending text messages. Most have high-quality cameras that are capable of taking and sending pictures with a few simple button pushes. You can surf the internet, or catch up with the folks on Facebook. You can even send and receive emails- all from your mobile phone.


It is not often that we get to live our dreams. Growing up in South Australia we would sit down as a family every Saturday afternoon and watch a documentary. I, like so many Aussie kids, grew up with David Attenborough and his amazing documentaries on African wildlife. I dreamed of going to Africa, seeing the Great Wildebeest Migration crossing the Mara River into Kenya, seeing young lion cubs chasing butterflies in the long grass, witnessing a leopard drag a kill up a tree. I never thought I would have the opportunity to live my dream.



Great Aussie Holiday Park is located on the banks of Lake Hume and is your complete outdoor adventure playground created to offer you the ultimate holiday experience.
