We have the best list of pet friendly dog friendly caravan parks VIC, so take a look, share it and leave a comment if you like it.
We have addressed several times in this post the major global and local events that have impacted on people’s lives in 2021 and most likely into 2022.
Victoria was hit badly several natural disasters through late-2019 and the first 6-months of 2020.
Several times in recent history Victoria has been hit badly by bush fires and once again they suffered in late 2019-earlt 2020.
Many states were affected; loss of lives, homes, livelihoods, wildlife, habitats, and communities.
Not everyone has lost their income source; a holiday at home may be something that they can still afford.
Let’s all encourage those people to still ‘holiday at home’ this year, and the next most likely.
