Action Bike Ski owners Shayne (“Scratcha”) and Julie are TAWKers themselves and approached us to become TAWKer Supporters! They
have just finished a trip and know just what you need to make the best

sell and offer. I was astounded and I think you will be too. So many
things that will make your trip amazing are here in one place!
You can see from below the categories. More information here and grab your discount code! OH and they also have tours along the Mighty Murray River and hire options too.
Jean from AlignMat contacted me to offer her product to TAWKers as she thinks it can really help you with those long driving days. It's an acupressure Mat!
It helps to stimulate blood flow and increase muscle relaxation, thus decreasing pain caused by long-distance driving and as TAWKers, we do a lot of that!!
The benefits that acupressure mats provide include:
- Increases blood flow giving you a burst in energy levels (handy for when your driving for long periods)
- Relaxes muscles
- Releases any muscle tension, including any neck and back pain which is commonly suffered during long-distance driving
- Helps stimulate restful sleep and hormones
Children can also use the AlignMat, but it's recommended for a maximum of 5 minutes. Children should also wear socks when standing on the Alignmat and a shirt when lying down.
For more information about how the product works please visit the AlignMat website.
Use the code TAWK for a 10% discount! Please support Jean supporting you.
Discover, create, improvise and imagine.. Check out - At Home With You!
Many families travelling the country have young kids and are concerned about them missing out on their kindergarten years. If this is you, this might be the answer. It's a teacher developed program that focuses on creating meaningful and exciting learning experiences for your child where ever you may be.
At Home With You has been designed to support families teaching children the skills of kindergarten, through playful, hands on and play based experiences plus a the same time, creating a community of families focus on supporting and encouraging the development of their child’s education. This could be really helpful on the road.
The program has weekly online tutorials that will give parents the skills and knowledge to deliver the content to their child in a fun and playful way. Then, weekly there is the opportunity to discuss the content from the program, have examples and engaging activities and play based ideas to help you achieve the outcomes where ever you may be.
They would like to offer TAWK Members a discount, so use the code TAWK10.

Now here is a great idea and surely a 'Must Have' on your trip.
The BBQARM. Australian designed and built on the Gold Coast, this space-saving innovation simply mounts to your caravan drawbar or rear bar to create a sturdy ‘out of the way’ place for your BBQ! It's a perfect table for your nibbles. It can also be a coffee table.
We are so happy to have them on board the TAWKer Supporter Program as owners Tony and Kylie are also TAWKers with a young family. Infact it was Kylie's desire for a neater campsite and Tony's need for less packing up (and I think we can all relate to both of these - Mandy from TAWK!) that the idea for the BBQARM was born. TAWK Members will get a 10% discount - please use the code TAWK10.
With their great tow-hitch mount, you can use your BBQARM whenever and wherever you travel. It's so easy to set up and pack away and it's tidy!
Have a quick look at the video below (although they are not at the show now, but you'll get the idea!) and visit their Facebook Page or Website for more info.
What a great resource this is for some of our travelling families! Ruth contacted me as she can see that many travelling families have children that may need a bit of extra support when on the road.
Big Sky Therapy is an online Occupational Therapy service for children aged 2 -18 years. Regardless of where you are in Australia, specialist advice is available without the need to travel long distances. Ruth has experience working and travelling in remote areas and understands the challenges and opportunities that living in Big Sky country presents.
The online therapy offers continuity for travelling families and their child/ren. They offer assessment, therapy and parent coaching to help your child/ren reach their Big Sky Goals. Plus of course, the child can be seen in their own environment.
Big Sky Therapy offers TAWK Members a 10% discount on their hourly rate.

Now this is a great idea AND story! You know how the best ideas come from an experience and you look for something that you need, but it's not there?
Busy Little Bosses is run by Tom who came up with this great idea for children to be entertained while staying in hospital overnight. Tom 19, who has Cerebral Palsy Quadriplegia, knew from his own experience and time spent in hospital as a child that he’d prefer to work on activities or do something fun, rather than sit around bored in hospital for hours! So Busy Little Bosses was born.
He then realised that not only is it a great idea for kids in hospital, it's also a great idea for kids when they travel our great land and spend hours in the car AND we agree with that! In each bag includes 11 carefully selected high-quality, unisex activities your kids will love. The versatile activity bag has an age range of 3-7 years old and will always include a colouring book, pencil case, crayons and a range of stickers, as well as other creative items to keep them busy and inspire. PLUS look at the awesome travel trays!
Tom would like to offer TAWK Members a 10% discount and would really appreciate your support of his little business. At present he does not have a website - and you need to send him a message to order. You can do that by emailing on email@example.com OR messaging him on the Busy Little Bosses Facebook Page here.
Please support Tom supporting you.
I am getting one of these! No more will you see me fighting with those fold up beach tents - you know the ones, those round things, they pop out easy enough BUT you can never find that same ease to pack them away. Now I know that time of my life is over! Thank goodness for that.
THIS is perfect - The Breezy Shade. So easy to set up AND more importantly pack away, YAY! Even the kids can do it. I also love them because they are small and compact, you can use them on sand or grass and easy adapt them as the sun moves. Have a read of our review of the Breezy Shade here.
Another great plus for me is that they are designed from a nature loving family from Brissy QLD.
After a lot of researching and educating themselves, they planned and designed the perfect shading solution for the beach, camping, park and just about anywhere you want to go. More benefits...
- Sun protection UPF 50+
- Made of top-quality stretchable Lycra Polyester
- Super light
- Wind resistant
- Breathable & quick to dry
- Setup with 3 simple steps and super easy to pack away.
- Available in multiple sizes and colours

They call it the Camper's Bible and we could not agree more! On our trip we definitely called it our Camping Bible. Although back then it was the Camps 5 edition! Everyone we met had a copy and it was an essential part of our trip planning.
You simply cannot beat sitting around a campfire with fellow campers, going through the book, making notes and swapping stories on places you have been and recommending spots to each other. Personally I prefer to do this than sit on my mobile device. (Although of course they do have an App too!)
You can choose from the Easy to Read Camps 10 edition with Camps photos - helps to give you more of an idea of where you might be staying - with larger maps OR the popular A4 Camps 10 without photos. PLUS if you also stay in Caravan Parks, you can buy a CAMPS 10 and the Caravan Parks 5 and save with a Travel Pack.
- 100% researched and updated
- Family owned and operated
- Fast, free shipping Australia wide
- Not just a guide to camping spots
- Easy to use and comprehensive guide
- Long list of site facilities
- GPS coordinates and site access details have been expanded
- Sites overlaid onto HEMA maps
We recommend you click here to find out more and work out what 'Bible' suits you best AND get your 15% discount all in one fail swoop OR if you know exactly what you want head to their website and pop in the discount code CAWAFTAWK.

How much do we love this?! Two perfectly aligned ideas:
You Hire - You can hire a privately owned caravan, camper or motor home - I think this is a really good idea, especially if you are not sure about what to go TAWKing with! Like a 'try before you buy'. That's what we did before we decided on what to travel in - we hired a pop top camper and took it away for a week to see if it was something that would suit our family and our travel plans.
The other side of their business which I also love...
You Hire our Your RV! - If you are not travelling at the moment or if you have finished your trip, make some $$$ by hiring out your RV instead of it being parked up. It could pay for your next adventure!
There are so many to choose from already if you are looking to hire one AND they are always looking for more RV's to hire out. Find out more here.
What a great idea; Mobile Caravan Repair Service! From caravan awning repairs to wheel bearing and brake issues, Randall from Camooweal Caravans can help.
you are travelling around, problems come up from time to time and you
need to get them repaired. If you are in the area of far western
Queensland and the Gulf Country to the north, then you need to call
With Lawn Hill National Park and the Gulf of Carpentaria
in the area, you will no doubt be passing nearby as you travel our

How about this for a fabulous idea and one that your kids can do on the road. Perfect to have some interaction with other children and sing their hearts out. A place for kids to connect with others through song - in a safe environment with weekly zoom sessions, guided instruction videos and online virtual choir too!
A TAWKing family suggested to Sue that she might like to join our TAWKer Supporter Program. I think it's a great fit for all the families schooling their kids who may be missing out on the musical side of their education. This would be a great fun, confidence boosting, way to learn vocal techniques without them realising they are learning.
The program runs monthly. Whenever you join up you get access to all the lessons in the member's area - each week has a live zoom session, tutorial video, mp3 track, lyrics and a zoom recording of the live class.
They also have kids join all through the month, which is pro-rated, so there's not need to wait! For further information head to the Online page on the Choirs4Kids website.
Choirs4Kids would like to offer TAWKers a 10% discount - code Trav-10. I think this is a fabulous idea to interact with other kids when on the road. Please support them supporting you.

Euka Future Learning approached us to become TAWK Supporters as they saw that educating your children
on the road was one of your major concerns and think that they may have
the answer that you are looking for. And because they are TAWK
Supporters, you of course get a TAWK Discount! TAWK21
What I really like about Euka is that they understand that some of the best advancements in the our history have been from people that have been taught to think outside the box. I think that by giving your children the gift of travelling and exploring our gorgeous country, helps them to do just that!

Oh TAWKer's you are going to love this and it might really help your kids AND YOU!! Teaching your kids is one thing that concerns most families when on the road.
Jolly Phonics in Melbourne has been created by Jacqui, who is a TAWK Mum and a Teacher who realised that many of you need some help. Now, to be clear, you don't need to be in Melbourne to benefit from this! As she has created a series of videos that you can access.
Travelling Australia with children that are young and beginning their literacy journey can be challenging OR maybe you have older children struggling with reading and writing. These 10 short videos will help to empower any parent (of younger and older children) how to successfully embed the basics of Jolly Phonics in the homeschooling environment.
Straightforward theory and simple, demonstrated activities will enable parents to use a multisensory, systematic, synthetic phonics approach when teaching their child to read and write. These videos are intended to be easily watched while multitasking as a busy parent. Resources needed are FREE and the basics included, no homework between videos required.

KFI Global contacted us to join the TAWKer Supporter Program. Kay, the owner of this small business found us while planning their big lap for next year and she saw many families with their own branding.
KFI Global specialise in personalised and custom items from apparel, stickers, mugs and even giftware. How cool would it be to have your own branding and personalised items for your home on wheels!

I am a big smelly girl - Ahhh that doesn't sound right! I mean I love smells and fragrances and how they affect your senses and memories. When I was on the road, I missed my oil burners - Let's face it; candles and caravans, not a great mix! So I was stoked when one of our TAWKing families told me about their MojiLife Australia Business that they had taken on the road.
There are the wonderful AirMoji's that uses no wax or flame to enjoy the aromas, you just turn it on, and enjoy a hassle free experience with your favourite essential oils and fragrances. Perfect for van life as sometimes it can get a little choice in the van with all the family living together in such a small space ❤

Parents Tom and Kirstin saw that there was a gap in the market for a Travel Diary that also included a whole learning experience for your child.
They realised this as they could not find one for their own child, so.... they created one. Not only one actually, as they have several! Including Australia, Bali and Thailand.
They travelled often and wanted to keep the school learning going while on vacation and alleviate the parental guilt they felt for travelling during the school term.
The My Big Adventure diaries have interactive and engaging activities + video content to enhance your child's total trip experience. The books aim to immerse children in the culture, history, food, and language. All that travel has to offer.
Even better news is that they have been written in line with the curriculum, and the activities have been co-created with qualified kindergarten and primary school teachers.
Of course, they realised that many TAWK families might feel the same and would like to offer a 10% discount to you all, including free shipping. Use the code TAWK at checkout and support them supporting you.

I love supporting local Aussie business and these guys are local to me in Perth. This is their 4th summer selling their Sand Free Beach Towels.
They are campers themselves, so they wanted to design a beach towel that was actually big enough to use but still compact and lightweight to pack. The fabric they use is actually lighter and more compact than that other big brand and also half the price which is a bonus! A BIG bonus!
They’ve specifically designed them so:
- they're big enough to lay on or wrap around you (180cm x 90cm)
- they fold up smaller than a water bottle and weigh only 390grams
- they come in a really handy travel pouch which makes them easy to store
- they’ve added a snap lock loop which makes them really easy to hang dry from your annex, marquee or tent.
- in a bit of wind they dry in about 10 minutes!
- the fabric itself isn’t like normal microfiber, it's a 'suede' microfiber which has a really smooth, silky soft feel. It's the tight weave of this fabric that makes the sand fall right off
- the more you wash them the more absorbent they get. After a few washes though you don't need to wash them after every use, which is what makes them awesome for travelling!
Go check out their website for more info and to grab yours with a 10% discount. Use the code TAWK10 and support them supporting you.
PERFECT for camping I think and with the TAWK discount, it makes them an even better buy.
My oh MY!! This is one product that I so so soooo wish was around back in 2010 when we did our trip around Australia! I could just not get the hang of the whole snorkel tube, blocked nose and mask coordination and frankly did not enjoy the snorkelling on the Ningaloo and Great Barrier reefs, which should have been the experience of a life time! The Ninja Shark full faced masks would have changed that for me. You can check out my experience in detail here.
Andrew and Allizee from Ninja Shark realised this was a difficulty for many people and so embarked on a journey to ensure that breathing and experiencing the world underwater would be as easy and stress free as possible. Not only for nervous Nellies' like me BUT how easy is this for the kids too! Ohhh this is one must take item on your trip around Australia! So easy for the kids to use and again more relaxing for us parents!
Luckily for us; Ninja Shark are now TAWKer Supporters and so you guys get a 20% discount! Use the code TAWK20 at checkout on the Ninja Shark website and save. Support this Aussie owned and run business as they support you.
Now there is much more than the gluten free idea that I love about this product. First up of course it will benefit those that are gluten intolerant BUT I also like the fact that it is healthy convenience food!
I reckon it's perfect for travelling families and those conscious of health and nutrition. All gluten and dairy free, has no preservatives or additives, ever, with mostly organic ingredients. All products are also vegan.
It's said that the Mac and Cheez range in particular tastes like the real thing - get some for the kids and I'm sure you'll get some feedback! All you do is add water and cook.
Seriously convenient and takes up minimal space when travelling. Apparently they are light and have a long shelf life.
Another absolute winner.......This is a local sunny coast business - the products have been created in Australia. For more info and to see all the products available, head over to The Gluten Free Food Company Australia's website.
When you order, make sure you pop in the code : NATURALNOMAD to get 15% off
I love it when TAWKers start their own business and as a community we can support them and if you are a TAWK Member you will get the TAWK Discount.

A TAWKing family told me about Pilanky. A product that they use and love and thought that it would be great for travelling families. I had to agree, so we made contact with them and lucky for us, Jo from Pilanky said they would love to become TAWKer Supporters and offer a 10% discount to TAWKing families.
Jo invented The Pilanky to help parents with a practical sleep/rest solution for Daycare, Pre-School, Travelling, Camping and Sleepovers. It is a comfortable roll out bed with mattress and pillow attached and comes with a double width sheet and blanket. It is 100% machine washable and the child’s name can be embroidered on it. Being on the road I truly feel that the kids love having personalised items and with the Pilanky they can.
It's also an All-In-One Bed so very easy and compact to pack instead of packing many other bulky bedding items.
There are other items that Jo sells, so nip over to the website and have a look and use the coupon code TAWK to get your 10% off.
Please support Jo supporting you.

SmartyPants Kidz was created by mother of three and Family Day Care Educator Lisa, who has been educating young children for over 20 years.
She was so passionate about fostering an environment of play-based, hands-on learning that she designed and manufactured these lovely Portable Magnet Boards from an educational & creative perspective. Perfect! They learn as they play.
Fabulous idea and one that I know my kids would have loved when we were travelling! Perfect for that time in the car when the trip is long and the kids need to occupied. Give them a portable magnetic board and let them play, learn and use their imagination. At present there are 3 to choose from and frankly they are so well priced, I'd consider getting all three! Especially with the TAWK discount that you are being offered.
The boards are - Fun. Unique. Portable. Educational. Creative. Designed for 3 - 6 year olds.
"A fantastic tool for learning and encouraging children to use their imagination. It is also the perfect way to keep your little one entertained at home or on travel. I highly recommend." - Alex from Coogee
Lisa would like to offer TAWKers a 20% discount! Use the code TRAVEL. Have a look at the options available and support her supporting you.
I'd like to introduce 'Subo' - The Food Bottle that is here to save your car on your trip!
I saw this first on Shark Tank and at the time, I thought what a great idea it would be for TAWKers! It is proudly Australian Made, invented, owned and operated so tick, tick tick in my book!
Young children from 6 months can easily sip food from Subo's soft silicon spout as there's no need to squeeze - which if you've ever used those squeeze pouches, you'll know the mess they can make! Inside these, is a nifty little invention of a platform that automatically moves up the bottle as the child sips the food directly into their mouths. It's a world first!
You can relax during your trip, knowing your children can enjoy an easy and nutritious meal that goes into their mouths and not all over themselves, their siblings, the car seat, the windows or the floor! Happy Days. AND to make this even better Subo would like to offer TAWK Members $5 OFF - That's a 16% saving! You'll need the code 'subotawk' so make sure you grab one or two and support them supporting you.
Oh Tim Coulson! Where were you when I started our 2 year trip around Australia 10 years ago!? I look back now at our photos and so so sooooo wish I'd have taken better shots. I just did not know how. We went to all these amazing places and I took many photos from ......... my phone! BIG Fail!! My amazing trip was not captured with amazing photos and I'm still disappointed about that. NOW Tim can change all that for you.
If you are anything like us, you've spent lots of money on your set up, you've no doubt made a sacrifice to make sure you have the best trip ever; Knowing what I know now, I ask you just how you are going to ensure you preserve those memories and invite you to consider taking Tim Coulson's Workshop. He's also like to offer TAWKers a 30% discount!
Tim was a TAWKer himself and took his family around the country last year. He met lots of families and just about everyone asks him: how to take better photos and what gear he uses etc. etc. Many had invested in fabulous cameras themselves but didn't know how to use them. He realised that he could use his knowledge and passion to help others and created an online photography workshop for people who wanted to learn how to make the best from their cameras. The workshop is totally online and would be perfect for families travelling Aus who want to take the best photos possible.
There are a series of videos that you work through at your own pace and you can view as many times as you like. It includes everything you will need to know to get the best shots on your trip. You also gain access to Tim's private Facebook group for the workshop, where you can continue to ask questions and advice.
Go check out more info here and use the code: TAWK for your 30% discount. Or email if you need any more info or have any questions on email@example.com AND get Social with him on Instagram. Please support him supporting you.
I so so sooo wished we'd have known about this when we travelled! It would have stopped those towels being used to block the sun -which in turns takes the view away!
Tint My Car in Malaga WA is offering 10% discount to TAWK Members, so make sure you grab your membership card to take advantage of the discount. We put a poll out on our Facebook page asking what TAWKers thoughts were about tinting their windows and ALL those that had done it, said it was worth every penny! Contact Scott on 0411 953 893 and tell him you are a TAWK Member and ask about the TAWK discount.
Oh YES! We all need one of these surely!! I know I do and will be taking advantage of the TAWK discount to grab one for my family.
When Lisa from the Wonderbag Store contacted me to become a TAWKer Supporter, I just knew that her product really would suit the travelling community. I know that I would have loved to have had one when we were on the road. A slow cooker WITHOUT the need for any other power! It cooks away as you drive away!
Imagine, just before you set off for the day, you simply bring your food to the boil on a stove, let it simmer for a bit, and then put the sealed pot into your Wonderbag. Your food will then slow cook without the use of any additional power! You can go out exploring for the day or drive to your next destination knowing that dinner is in the bag and ready whenever and wherever you are. Happy Days!
The Wonderbag also works as a chiller – it makes a great esky for a beach or boat trip. Also if you're not cooking in your Wonderbag, it is great for storing your fruit!

Now this is one of those businesses that I truly always thought there was a need for in the travelling community. So I am super excited to get Websites from a Van on board our TAWKer Supporter Program offering TAWK Members a 10% discount on their services.
So many families want to blog about their travels and can and are making some money from their sites. BUT often the thought of learning how to set up your blog and website can take a lot of time and effort and frankly it's time away from exploring and enjoying travelling Australia with your kids.
This is where Websites from a Van come in, they can do this for you! They will set it all up and teach you how to take over and run it. SIMPLE and so obvious and time saving. It will be money very well spent enabling you to get on with the trip rather than having to learn all the ins and outs of setting up a website and not spending the valuable time with your family.
They also offer more services, for example if you have your own business and need a website - or a better, more modern one, then they can guide you, upgrade your old one, organise your new one and generally do what you may have been putting off for years. Your website is the face of your business, so put on your best face!
Shane and Emily run their business from their van (hence the name) whilst they are TAWKing, so head on over to their website - see some examples and then contact them and let them know you are a TAWKer and you will get the TAWK discount. Please support them supporting you.

Made specifically for caravan bunk beds! You are going to LOVE these!
Oh I soooo wish that I'd have known about them when we were on the road. Finding sheets to fit the kid's bunk beds was a nightmare. These sheets are made specifically for caravan bunk beds AND..... An extra bonus - they are Zip Sheets! The top sheet is attached all the way around to the fitted sheets, so they stay on the kids!
Australian designed and owned the zip sheets idea originated from a camping trip back in 2011. It's a sleeping innovation to prevent children from kicking off or tangling in their sheets. Basically; a flat sheet attached to the fitted sheet with zips either side to allow for easy entrance.
PLUS, if you are like me and hate making the bunk beds in your van? These sheets will change that......Simply slip the fitted sheet over the mattress and you’re done! (Oh! AND they make some for normal beds too!)
Check out the video - below for more info and then order up! As a TAWKer you will get a 10% discount ! Use the code TAWK10 (minimum 2 sets for code to apply).

This great book by the team at Kids on the Road is an activity book and journal for kids travelling through the Northern Territory. With strong links to Australian syllabus, it can certainly assist with their learning about the Northern Territory. It is really ideal for children that are taking time out of school to travel this great land.
As the children visit each destination from Uluru to Darwin they can complete the activities in the book. Not only does this make it more interesting for them, it reinforces their learning.

Steve and family are just like you and wanted to Travel Australia to do The Big Lap.
years they dreamed of leaving the rat race behind and getting on the road.
Finally they did it and they filmed it too! If you want the heads up to
what it might be like, then this will give you a really good idea.
There are plenty of travel shows on TV but none like The Big Lap.
They filmed the 10 episode series over 2 years including the planning
preparation for the trip and I think this is one of the best parts as it
gives you thoughts on what you might need to do. They show the challenges of
getting prepared and their journey. Steve includes all the highs but
also the lows, giving a true indication of what life is like on the road.
You also hear it from the guys perspective (from Steve) and the girls (from Jen), so a very balanced view. Find out more here...
As an early childhood educator, Sharron from 'From the Heart Photography' has
worked in the field of early childhood education for over 22 years. She has recently developed a passion for children's
photo story books about sustainability and looking after our earth!
Being the photographer that she is, she knew that she was onto something.
She is also a TAWKer and has travelled to
every state and capital city in Australia with her family. She teachers her children how
beautiful our country is and how easy it is to forget just how fragile it
is. So she thought of a range of books that would help their understanding.
