Knowing CPR could be one of the best things that you take on the road with you. BUT do you know how to do it? It might be time to learn.
Luckily one TAWKing Family are on a mission to make sure everyone has the opportunity to learn CPR and how to use a defibrillator and they are travelling this country and teaching as they go.
Let me introduce Claire who's Facebook page is called A Life Saving Lap and offered to write one of the most important articles we've ever published here at Travelling Australia With Kids, you can read it here.
Claire would like to offer TAWK Members a 10% discount on the family lesson on this life saving skill. Find out if they are near you or message her Facebook Page to find out more.
Most of you will have heard of ABC Reading Eggs! If you haven't then let me introduce it to you. ABC Reading Eggs is an online reading program, created by experienced Australian teachers to help your child learn to read. And it really works! It certainly helped my kids when we were travelling and it gave them easy-to-follow lessons that perfectly match their ability.
They loved the fun games, colourful animations, catchy songs and exciting rewards. Infact, I don't think that they realised it was learning!!
I used it on our travels and the kids loved it! It really helped me school them as I'd set one of them up on the computer getting busy with learning to read whilst I concentrated on helping the other two with their school work.
We're excited to say that ABC Reading Eggs has teamed up with TAWK to help you educate your kids on the road with a discount on the program for TAWKers!
Here's the unique URL which you need to click on to sign up to the program - where you can get 3 weeks FREE access and then, once you love it, use the unique promo code of TAWK12 and you will get 10% off the Reading Eggs program. This 10% discount code only applies to a 12 month ABC Reading Eggs subscription. It cannot be used with any other offer.
Seriously, try this multi-award winning online reading program. It's perfect for TAWKers as it's aimed at the ages 2 – 13. All based on scientific research and they guarantee your child's reading ability will improve in just weeks.
When Grant and Melissa from QLD Accelerated Diesel Tuning & Mechanical contacted us about becoming TAWKer Supporters and giving TAWKers a discount, I could not have been happier as it's a way that you might save money on fuel and so I knew you'd all love that! They are also the only licensed Agritune dealers for the Gold Coast and Brisbane.

BUT this gets even better as they would also like to offer TAWK Members a free camp night when the work is being done! Now that's a TAWKer Supporter!!
"Our business caters specifically to traveling families passing the Gold Coast as not only do we offer great rates on the service but free camp for our customers as well! Possibly the only free camp on the Gold Coast! (self contained only)." - Melissa

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
of your trip around Australia. You have to have a look at all that they
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.
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.
Complete Education Australia 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!
What I really like about Complete Education Australia 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!

Now here's a book you might like to grab and at a good 20% discount too! Australia Free 3 is an essential guide to Australia for the budget conscious traveller - and as families we can all relate to that! It has one simple purpose: to bring to the traveller the best FREE places to stay, FREE things to do, and FREE sights to see = Happy days!! It has around 1,500 activities and sites, and 1,500 free camp sites.
The guidebooks author, Mike Koch, has spent 7 years meticulously researching, investigating, photographing, documenting and personally visiting the thousands of locations that are available to stay, visit and enjoy for FREE.
- Features 1,500 free activities and sights, and 1,500 free camp sites across Australia, including waterfalls, swimming holes, museums, zoos, playgrounds, galleries, parks and gardens.
- Many inclusions have never before been previously mentioned in a guide book.
- Detailed maps and GPS co-ordinates ensure travellers have no trouble finding the attractions.
- Custom icons throughout the guide show readers at a glance what facilities are available at camping location.
The idea for Australia Free was first thought about when on a camping trip to Cairns, travellers at the local caravan park heard Mike knew a lot about Australia and came to him for advice on their travels. "I kept hearing the same story – Australia is expensive to travel. What is there to see and do that is free?" The idea was born and the book was written.
As a TAWKer member, you can get 20% off Australia Free 3 - To order, please click here to visit their secure website and make sure you enter the Promo Code 'afree3' at the checkout to ensure you receive your discount.
Some of our great TAWKing families are running a business as they travel our wonderful land and Cramped in a Van are one of them. The are selling the amazing Talyala Emu Oil from their van whilst they travel. You can also order online (if you are already travelling, get the items sent to a post office where you are heading to pick up 'post restante').
Cramped in a Van would like to support the travelling community too and offer a 10% discount on the Talyala Emu Oil Range; you will need to use the code CRAMPED to get the discount - or of course, follow them on Facebook and see where they are and maybe you are nearby and can buy direct from them. What are the benefits of emu oil?
Australia’s Indigenous people have long known about the healing power of emu oil, and modern science is only just catching up. So;
This natural, anti-inflammatory product is rich in omega fatty acids and vitamins A, D, E and F. Taken internally or used topically, it can assist with a number of conditions:
- Arthritis, joint pain, muscle aches, bruising and sprains
- Eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and dry skin
- Wounds, scars, fine lines and wrinkles
- Thinning or greying hair
- Burns and sunburn
- Insect bites
For more information and to see the whole range, check out the Talyala Emu Oil Website here and don't forget to use the code CRAMPED* for the TAWK discount.
* This code won't work on bundles and multi buy packs, so if you want capsules for example, add the single jar to your cart, and adjust the quantity required, then use your coupon code to apply the 10% discount - contact look on Cramped in a Vans Facebook page if you have any issues.
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.

Galways Go Round have to be one of the most positive and encouraging families that I have the pleasure to 'e-know'! We have never met in person (yet!) But I feel as though they are friends. They have TAWKed and now get away as often as they can and lend their travelling experience to encourage other families to explore our amazing county.
So when they joined up with Red Paddle Co to sell these great products I was keen to get them on board the TAWK Supporter Program. They said YES!
The inflatable stand up paddle board from Red Paddle Co is the a great idea to take with you on your trip. Plus you will have family fun to enjoy well into the future. They have sizes that will also suit the kids! These compact and portable boards are lightweight and the highest quality available.
Galways Go Round are mobile retailers of Red Paddle Co and certified by Red to help you decide the best board to suit your needs. To discuss your needs give Sharon a call on 0416 163656 before ordering.
And when you do order, use code TAWK to receive free shipping Australia wide and free leg rope, total value $100. More info here. Please support this great TAWK family supporting you ❤❤
When River to Ocean Adventures contacted me to offer you guys a discount I was stoked as they offer a range of products that I see many families use on their travels. They are a family run business and spending time in the ocean is also their passion, so they truly know what's important when it comes to purchasing the best equipment.
AND let's face it - NOW might be the perfect time to buy and make the most of your trip and what the rivers and oceans of Australia have to offer.
They do have lots of items that you'll find useful on your trip and also have a wide range of Inflatable water sports equipment. Inflatables are fast becoming so popular and I see it with TAWKers all the time using them. Mainly of course due to the convenience in transporting them. Kayaking and paddle boarding has never been so easy whilst travelling!
They've teamed up with us here at TAWK to bring you some great package deals which will allow your whole tribe to get involved.
They ship Australia wide and shipping is FREE over $100 for all inflatables and some none inflatables. You will benefit with a 10% discount with the code TAWK!
How's this for a great idea from a TAWKing family!? Not only are they keeping us all supplied with coffee they can organise some stickers and branding for you too!
From the team that are travelling and bringing amazing coffee around Australia, Round & Round now brings you custom made stickers and stubby holders!
Andy Hoffman is an experienced graphic designer and has been focusing on bringing fellow travellers ideas to life in the form of unique car/van stickers or personalised stubby holders. Maybe you just need help with a logo idea for a blog or t-shirts?
Special offer for for TAWKers- receive $10 off your quote. Email email@example.com for more info and use discount code: TAWK18
S & J Automotive Repairs are a family owned and operated business that love to travel and camp with their kids themselves.
Whilst not TAWKing at the moment, they contacted us to offer TAWK Members a 10% discount.
Let's face it, one of the most important things to get right on the trip is the car as you don't want it breaking down. So get your Car, Brakes, Tyres and in my opinion another important thing, your air-con in top condition before you set off.
They unfortunately cannot offer this on service as the cost is so low, starting from $109 but on everything else they can, so if you are in the area and can support them supporting you, please do so. A personalised service from a family that wants to support TAWKers.
When Star from ENJO first contacted me about becoming a TAWK Supporter, I wasn't entirely sure it'd be a good fit BUT then we got "TAWKing" and I realised that as a group we are a bit more in tune with the environment than most, I quickly realised; infact it's a perfect fit.
Star loves to camp and when she does, she takes the ENJO products with them for use while camping or travelling as they find they don’t want
to spend their holidays using nasty chemicals and they want to make travel as easy
as possible by reducing the number of bottles and liquids they carry. She says "A small
stash of microfibres weighs nothing, can be kept anywhere and is not at risk of
flammable or hazardous interactions.
Our long-term goal is to travel
around Australia for 2 years with our children and support our travel by taking
ENJO to caravan parks and local markets along the way. I have built up a very
loyal and caring customer base in Perth as well as up and down the WA coast and
I hope to extend that base as we travel and introduce new families in every
state to these wonderful and innovative products."
The discounts she is offering TAWKERS:
- 10% discount on individual items AND 5% discount on all Bundles (they are discounted already) on all ENJO - Cleaning products and Sante by ENJO - Body and face products
Orders over $250 get FREE shipping ($9.95 value). This is on top of whatever monthly special we have already going.!
To get yourselves a great deal or for more information, please contact her directly on her Facebook Page, call on 0424 545 575 or email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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! Things like avocado, tomatoes and bananas travel really well. This clever little slow cooker is a great and versatile addition to your camp kitchen.
Please support Lisa and her Wonderbag store as she supports you with a 10% discount in you use the code TAWK10.
When the kids are on the road, having their own personal items can really help them. Ashleigh has her own Yayme business and offers items for kids that can all be personalised. From bags, chairs, hats, towels and even car organisers, all personalised for them.
To really appreciate all the items that you might like head over to her website. I especially like the 'Recreation' items.
Ashleigh says there are lots of specials on often and I encourage you to head on over to her Facebook page and message her for the special on at present and let her know what you are after. Her other contact details are:

Fast Cover Travel Insurance approached us to see how they could become involved
in the TAWKer Supporter Program and we told them it was easy - give
TAWKers a discount on their travel insurance. They said YES! You have to love that. You know you need travel insurance if you are going abroad, so the question is; do you need Domestic Travel Insurance? The short answer is, you probably do! Whether you're planning to
travel the whole country in one long trip or several short trips you
should make sure you have domestic travel insurance to provide
protection for you and your.
Fast Cover Travel Insurance policies
can provide cover for you and your family for travel in Australia for
just one day or up to a whole year.

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.

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

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.
