Meet the Caravans Part 2

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!

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!

    That was such fun guys – thanks so much for putting it on. Only got there today but went over again later this arvo, and we just loved it!! A whole world of experience and fun and art and history by the looks of it…. An absolute buzz to check out the vans and meet the great people who brought them here. Happy travelling on from here!

    What a fantastic event!! I visted twice over the weekend simply because the atmosphere was wonderful and there was so much to absorb. Thank you to the organisers and a BIG thank you to the caravans and their human friends for making such a huge effort to visit Canberra and remind us of times more simple.
