Caravan and Camping with John Williamson

Caravan and Camping with John Williamson

Caravan Industry Association of Australia is pleased to present the first in our new video series; ‘Caravan and camping with the stars’.

We’ll be sitting down with well-known Australians as they share some of their favourite caravan and camping memories.

Aussie icon, singer-songwriter John Williamson is first up ahead of the release of his 20th album ‘Butcherbird’.
Butcherbird sees John reflecting on life, love and the bush that surrounds him. With the album partially written on his property in Springbrook, Qld, John took inspiration from his surrounds, highlighted by the album’s cover art which John illustrated himself, with the accompanying image shot at the Springbrook property.

To find out what John loves about caravan and camping trips and hear some of his favourite memories, watch the video below:

    My Home Australia

    This is Australia my home,
    where beast and human hunt and roam,
    where termite mounds have stood for years
    and country pubs serve ice cold beers.

    Where droughts seem like they’ll never end
    while in the sky some hawks descend,
    then pick the bones of calf or lamb,
    they died where once was a full dam.

    Where farmers kick the dust and rock
    how long can they stay on their block?
    and pray one day the rain will come
    then hardships might be overcome.

    Where with the rains the landscapes change,
    from dry salt pans to mountain range,
    the waterways they now disperse,
    within a country so diverse

    Where fingers stretching through this land
    are filling all the beds of sand,
    and soak the ground right to its core,
    the channels come alive once more

    Where gathered by the creeks and streams
    comes forth the noise of howls and screams,
    from pink galahs and cockatoo,
    some dingo’s, flocks of emus too.

    Where flowers wake from their long sleep
    soon through the cracks they’ll slowly creep
    and show their reds and orange hues
    with yellows, whites and varied blues.

    A sea of colour all around,
    A festive scene is all abound,
    then rest beneath a starry dome,
    This is Australia my home.
