    Travels with our Hippie Camper Transformer
    Transformer = Hippie CamperTravellers in need = Sian & TomHow could we have known that the Hippie Camper that we collected would be more than a home on wheels for the next six weeks. We got more than we expected.Our 6,000km trip took us up and down the East Coast from Brisbane to Cape Tribulation and back down to Sydney. Our first need was a meditation space and to our surprise our Hippie Camper transformer came to our help when it... read more

    The sun always shines on Hippie Campers
    After spending too much time during our first few weeks in the country involuntarily sampling the Australian healthcare system thanks to a foot infection picked up in Singapore, and the subsequent allergic reactions to the treatment, we were hoping that hiring our Hippie campervan would be the start of some brighter times and kick-start our Aussie adventure.We had chosen Hippie over other companies for several reasons.  Aside from the positive internet reviews, good reliability and the low price, we also... read more

    Touring new south wales
    After a three day stay at Sydney we got to pick up the Hippie camper. First the camper looked small but it worked out for the 11 days we stayed in our Truus (nickname). Driving left was a challenge espacially when we started in the city, but after some time we got the hang of it. The most funny thing was, when we wanted to make a turn we used our windscreen wiper iso the flashing light. All the Ozzies saw that we... read more

    The Amazing Adventure
    After what seemed like an eternity, my 14 year old son and I finally arrived into Christchurch NZ where we were cheerfully greeted by "the Hippie Camper" staff. They were extremely helpful and accomodating. The van was everything we anticipated and then some.  We spent 33 days exploring all of the South Island of New Zealand circumnavigating from one end to the other.  The beauty of this country is undescribable.  Because of the versatlity and size of our "Hippe Camper"... read more

    Grüße aus dem Inneren der Erde
    Die letzte Tour seines dreiwöchigen Neuseeland-Trips führte Florian Schiegl zum "Devil's Staircase" (des Teufels Treppenhaus) und zum Ngauruhoe - Schicksalsberg im Filmepos "Der Herr der Ringe". Der Tag ist kristallklar, die Lungenflügel blasen sich mit frischer Bergluft auf, die Sonne schickt warme Strahlen. Am Horizont zeichnet sich gar der Gipfel des Mount Taranaki ab, schneebedeckt und mehr als 150 Kilometer entfernt. “Das ist sehr selten”, sagt Bergführer Stewart Barclay. “Wir haben heute traumhafte Bedingungen.” Die Tongariro Crossing gilt als schönste Tageswanderung... read more
