“Aussie Road Crew breathes new life into camping holidays with the innovative idea of hosted self-drive, semi-catered tours featuring recording artists providing entertainment along the way. The tours take the campers to a new and exciting part of the country every two days where you set up camp as a group and the fun begins.”
Aussie Road Crew is the brainchild of Australian singer, Beccy Cole. After having hosted many overseas tours where Australians took in the sites of Greece, Italy, Turkey, Africa, USA and many other locations before being entertained by Beccy. On buses in the USA, on cruise ships in the Eastern Mediterranean and around campfires in Africa, Beccy has been the performer who brings music and joy to these travelling Aussies. Whilst strumming the guitar and singing songs with Libby O’Donovan after a day of lion and elephant spotting in South Africa, Beccy wondered why she wasn’t also doing this kind of musical tour hosting in her own beautiful country. Add to this desire, her love of camping and getting back to basics and here, Aussie Road Crew was born.
Aussie Road Crew’s maiden voyage was the ‘Mountains to Mulga’ tour of Queensland in May 2017. Starting in the beautiful country of the McPherson Range and stopping to camp at some wonderfully exquisite campgrounds on the way to the outback. Live music was played every night by Beccy Cole and many other artists. Magic was made, friendships were forged and Beccy’s dream of getting back to basics came true. “There is simply nothing like sitting around a campfire with a group of people as an Aussie entertainer tells their stories and sings their songs” – Beccy Cole. Those entertainers included Simply Bushed, Rebecca Lee Bye, Billy Bridge, Dave Proust, Brendan Radford, Mick Albeck and, of course Beccy and Libby.
Our first ‘Roadies’ left the tour absolutely raving about their experience and most of them have rebooked on future tours.
Our 2017 SA Vines, Outback and Gulf Loop was a corker! Entertainers included Sara Storer, Amber Joy Poulton, Sandra Humphries, Dave Prior, Ricky Albeck, Trev Waner, Taylor Pfeiffer and Carole Sturtzel. We pushed our capacity to the limit with close to 40 vehicles and over 70 Roadies. From the beautiful wine country of the Barossa to the breath-taking gorges of the Flinders Ranges and ending among the finest oysters in the world at Mount Dutton Bay near beautiful Coffin Bay. Roadies enjoyed fishing trips, steam train rides and 4WD adventures mixed into their musical journey.
Tasmania in Feb still has some spaces available. QLD is completely sold out. SA and NSW are close to capacity
