Australia is a great place to boondock. Enjoy boondocking anywhere in the United States.

5th wheel Cougar. This unit is a half ton series that I pull with a Toyota Tundra. It has one 12' slideout.
My pup and I had a wonderful stay with Longdistanceman and his family! We bonded over travel stories and hiking trails almost immediately. Could not have been a better first experience with Boondockers Welcome. I hope to see them again soon!
We stayed at Tim’s place last night. He was there waiting for us even though we got there later than expected. Tim is a super person, very friendly and open to the world. He has traveled extensively and he knows how to be a welcoming person. The street we stayed at is very quiet and super clean and the neighborhood is perfect. We exchanged glasses of wine and had a good chat together. This morning, he even had bagels for us for breakfast and to go on the road. Thanks a lot Tim, you made our day !
My husband and I spent a very pleasant night with Tim in Virginia!! He could not have been more welcoming!! His home is not far off the highway and very quiet at night. We left feeling that we had acquired a new friend and safe haven from the cold this year is presenting. We are very grateful!!
We enjoyed staying at Tims as we shared a few stories over nice meals, and even met another boondocker staying there. We did have 15 amp electric which was a bonus, and stores were 5 minutes away. I have only praise for this fine host who really took care of us. Thank you Tim.
We were meeting up with friends in Winchester, VA and were arriving the night before. We were just looking for a place to spend the evening, so we'd be close by the following morning.
TruthAndTravels agreed to host us and suggested we stop in for a few moments to chat. Four or five glasses of wine later, we had met the grandchildren, cats, et al. They were most gracious hosts, and turns out we had lots in common. Great people - hope to cross paths with them again sometime.
Parking was on the city street in front of their house, as their fifth wheel takes up most of their driveway. Nice and quiet neighborhood.
TruthAndTravels were the most welcoming of hosts. We arrived at dusk after a long day of travel and hoping for a quiet place to spend the night. Their home was perfect for us on a quiet residential street in Winchester PA. They and their son-in-law helped us get set up for the night and provided electrical hookup (15 amp) which was wonderful to have. Although not expected, we were offered breakfast and enjoyed visiting with our hosts before continuing our journey home to Canada. We highly recommend TruthAndTravel's boondocking location. Friendly, warm and welcoming ... wonderful to spend time with! Thank you.
We were camped at French Creek State Park in Pennsylvania in August this year and that's where we met this lovely couple, their Daughter, her husband and son. After chatting for a while, they were aware that we were soon heading to the Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway via Winchester VA, they suggested that we might like to visit with them at their home as we would be in the area. I promptly went to our RV where we carry some brochures that explain all about the Boondockers Welcome website and how to join. They thought that was a wonderful concept and as a result we now have another member of B.W. We were treated like family while visiting for a few nights and enjoyed meeting several family members.
This guy has hiked the Appalachian Trail and is a wealth of knowledge in that regard.
We offer our property to host visitors in Queensland Australia when we are at home and if these guys can arrange a trip Down Under as they would like to, they will be very welcome guests.
Cheers, Woodgate Wanderers
