Hippie Camper supports WA Vanlife Gathering

As our Vanlife community grows around the world we aim to meet up with you all through organising gatherings in different countries, towns, national parks, nature reserves, free camp properties & where ever else we can! We can't always bring our own vans & rolling homes to meet up and share some fun so we were excited that Hippie Campers wanted to support our Western Australia Vanlife Gathering last year. We took these two awesome Hippie Camper vans all the way from Perth to Margaret River & back checking out the wonderful coastline, surfing, sharing stories, music & our epic gathering in the Margaret River region! Read on to hear how it went down!

Vanlife Gatherings are set up to connect with local community organisations doing awesome things, local artists, musicians, conscious community members who want to share their stories and promote positive change and culture. We love to showcase the awesome things going on in local communities and meet up with like minded travellers who want to hang out too! We couldn't have done this gathering without Hippie Campers and their support. We really appreciate their involvement in our community and allowing us to keep doing what we do! In Western Australia we were able to connect with Little Village music to run a special night of music for the community. We connected with Take 3 to do a beach clean up of Yallingup beach. Yoga Southwest gave our community an amazing yoga session by the beach and then we had a One Wave "Free the funk" surf with local legends Spread the froth! The second day of the gathering we went to Red Cloud Art Space and did an awesome interactive art workshop.  

From Perth to Margaret River we stopped to play for homeless organisations including Orange Sky Laundry, local markets, cafes and music venues. We took along Adam Harpaz & Josh Fergus who supported this tour & gathering.  Check out the pics below for more of the fun & get in touch with Hippie Campers if your ever in need of a rental van. Tell them Vanlife DIaries sent you! See you at a gathering soon my friends!
