The BMW X5 and X7 are not just good looking roosters, they’re strong and built for the outback.
From smooth bitumen to dirt roads and everything in between, with a whopping towing capacity of three-and-a-half tonnes, these wheels can take you and your caravan anywhere you want in luxury.
With its futuristic built-in technology, you’ll experience next-level driving and reverse assist, where the car actually drives for you. The digital services and navigational tools are so incredible that you can mirror your iPhone (or Android) to your screen and view your speed and map in your front window — so you never have to take your eyes off the road. With plenty of boot space, there’s room to pack your family in the car, hook on the caravan and experience one of life’s joys – free camping. We took our X5 and X7 to the Riverland and it was sensational!
Free camp: Loveday 4X4 Adventure Park
Set on 80,000 acres of private property, Loveday is like a big kid’s playground with adventure waiting for you around every corner. You can get wet and wild with a jet ski tour on the Murray, taking in all the wildlife along the way. They’ll deck you out with a jet ski and a life jacket, so all you need is an extra pair of undies, LOL. Fast car enthusiasts may prefer to get dirty on the track with a hot lap. Their turbo buggies fly over jumps and can hit speeds of up to 110 kilometres an hour.
Powered site: BIG4 Renmark Riverfront Holiday Park
Located right on the Murray River in the heart of the Riverland, this holiday park has everything you need to make lasting memories for kids, parents and golden oldies. Apart from the river on your doorstep, there’s a water park, a skate park, a games room and powered sites — and it’s all surrounded by stunning Riverland views.
Hot tip: Woolshed Brewery
Unhook your caravan and you’re free to explore the region. You can’t visit the Riverland without trying the famous award-winning Hard Lemonades at Wilkadene’s Woolshed Brewery. The 100-year-old woolshed includes a tasting deck overlooking the River Murray where you can enjoy a cheese platter, a cider and a great time.
