Destination Narooma (NSW)

Fishing, golf and of course the beach. In this travel diary we visit Narooma Shores Holiday park

There is something about fibreglass caravans that seems to bring out people’s creativity. As some owners put it, Sunliners are like a blank canvas. That was certainly the case for Cliff and his wife Ingrid Pallister. They personalised their 1958 Sunliner van with a distinctly American theme.

They painted the outside silver, making it look aluminium; repainted the interior in white and blue; replaced the coupling with one from a later model Sunliner and laid new lino. Then they gradually filled their caravan with Americana, including bed linen with stars and stripes, a table cloth with an American flag design, Coca-Cola collectibles, Betty Boop pictures and cushions with Ford logos.
