- We’ve all made it to Canberra now! We can’t wait to meet you all from 6.30pm tomorrow (Friday) night at Grevillea Park on the bank of Lake Burley Griffen in Canberra! If you can’t make it down, here are a few more vans and humans for you to get to know:
‘Spunky’ the 1957 Pheonix with Dennis & Sandra from Geelong. They’ve been working with artist Damien on an audio installation using old radios like the one below!
Narrelle & Len and their 1963 Olympic Riviera. Len’s travelled to Uluru 3 times with the same car, the same camera and the same wife!
This is John & Julies first trip in their 1962 Sunliner! They’ve come all the way from Toowoomba, QLD!
Lyn from South Maclane near Brisbane saved this 1955 homemade van from being chucked out! She drove all the way to Katanning in WA to pick it up! It’s called ‘Morticia’ because of the steel coffin handles!
Judy and Ken from Canberra sit in the light and airy ‘Freda’, a 1969 Franklin Freeway. It sure is an upgrade from their handmade Teardrop!
‘Frankie’ the 1974 Franklin with Esther the dog & Margie & Chris from Adelaide. They’re not grey nomads, they’re BBONFAs (Baby Boomers Of No Fixed Address)!
Ray & Sandra from Woollongong with ‘Cassie’, a 1965 Viscount Druralvan named after Rays mother, who had 10 kids. Drural is the type of aluminium used to make planes!
We’ve got plenty more people for you to meet, we’ll post the photos in the coming days. See you at Grevillea Park tomorrow night, or over the weekend from 10-12 or 2-4!
