Who they are
Heatley and Michelle Gilmore are the third owners of Camps Australia Wide. Based on Queensland’s Cooloola Coast, Heatley and Michelle travel every chance they get.
Since 2018, Heatley and Michelle Gilmore have continued the tradition of 20 years worth of travel and almost 30 years of research to provide Australia’s most comprehensive and easy to use camping, budget campsite and caravan park guides, that help you save money and travel further.
More so, Heatley and Michelle are leading the Australian travel industry with their innovative guide books and app – constantly improving site find-ability, site verification, utilising easy to understand symbols and embracing technology to help people really experience Australia!
Michelle and Heatley are passionate about affordable travel around our country, about respecting our land, and leaving a campsite cleaner than you found it. They know that caravan parks play a vital role for travellers too (especially if you only carry 140L for 2 adults and 4 kids!).
Michelle and Heatley love sharing campfire happy hours, chatting to fellow travellers and marvelling at our unique wildlife, scenery and way of life on the road.
Heatley and Michelle took their family around Australia with CAMPS 7 a few years back – six of them in a six berth motorhome, making treasured family memories. Today you’ll find them auditing sites, ticking off bucket list must dos and sharing their favourite travel places and tips in the free CAMPS newsletter, Facebook Group “I Love Camping Australia Wide’ and on other social media channels.
Look out for us in our Mountain Trail hybrid van towed by a dual cab ute, and hope to meet you on our travels!
