A road trip in a campervan is always a great way to see Australia, and what makes it even better is when we can take our furry friends along with us for the ride. Apollo Campers are pet-friendly, meaning no family member is left behind! When it comes to travelling with pets however, it can take a little more planning as pet friendly camping and campsites  can be a little more tricky to find. .
