"Traveling - it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller"
-Ibn Battuta


It's beginning to feel ... 

Can you believe it will be November on Sunday? What a year! Feels like we all need a holiday. I think everyone is feeling the same way. Time to start planning and preparing. Has anyone tried to order a bicycle for Christmas and been told it will be here in March 2021? Try tell that to a 10 year old.  With less than 2 months to go, time to get the vans ready for that family getaway, even if it means that we can't go to Queensland.  There are lots of beautiful places to visit wherever you are in Australia.

We are very excited to be adding to our KombiLife merchandise / gifts in time for Christmas.  Our new t-shirts have arrived and are ready to be shipped. There are 2 colours (natural and black) and available in Men's and Women's. They are limited so get in early to avoid disappointment. Our new caps are more plentiful but we won't be doing another run this year.  What is there is there. They arrive in 2 weeks. There are 3 colours available. Our Beach Towels will also arrive next week. Last chance to be a part of our 2021 Calendar and don't forget to order one as we are not printing many.  And finally keep an eye out for our postcards.

Events... We had a top weekend exploring the backroads of Lithgow and Mudgee - photos are below.  A date for the diary is the 2020 Kombi Rally at Cronulla Beach on 7th November.  Come grab a few of our new brand new KombiLife stickers hot off the press and a few of our very impressive KombiLife postcards to inspire your travels.  This is also your chance to be the first to see the T6.1.

On a products note we have added a few more to our range to solve your storage and space issues - roof boxes and roof baskets from Thule

We know many have been waiting for the Front Runner, very space efficient Expander Chair.  These are now available.

A Top Weekend - 4Motion Weekend Escape

KombiLife and some of our customers enjoyed a top weekend in Lithgow and Mudgee in mid-October. Glen Davis and Sofala took us on some of the amazing backroads. We stayed at the best campsite and got to enjoy camping in our vans and sat around our campfire to talk of the days adventure. Thanks to Alex @4motionadventures and all who participated.  What a great weekend away.  Keep an eye out for our next Kombi Adventure.
