The Dixon Family Travels

Join us as we adventure Around the corner and across the world

We're the Dixon Family...and we like to travel

From when we first met, my husband Tony and I did a lot of camping (including three trips across Australia with my dog, a ute, a tent, an airbed and a gas cooker). Then we upgraded to a borrowed caravan. And then we bought our own caravan.

Since then, our baby girl Gemma has come on the scene.

We went on our first caravan trip when Gemma was just four weeks old. And I’ve realised that people don’t often travel with babies…and there aren’t many resources online about travelling with a baby (and definitely not for travelling with a baby and a caravan) for people like me who like to plan.

So, here you’ll find stories from our travels, along with tips and tricks we’ve picked up along the way.
