Best Road Trips in Australia - Teepee Dreaming
We took the boys on a road trip recently all the way to Bells Beach in Victoria stopping along the way at Rutherglen, Daylesford, Trentham and the Mornington Peninsula. Our final destination was Bells Beach, a surfers haven and a super friendly and chilled out coastal town, home of world famous surf breaks. We were so excited to stumble upon this awesome tee-pee adventure stay, spotted on instagram via the lovely peeps at Flinders Beach Shack (another reason why I love instagram). The few days we spent here Teepee Dreaming was certainly a highlight of the roadtrip.

So how can you book to stay here you might ask? Ripa Ride adventures was founded in Melbourne in 2013, owned and operated by Marlon Law and Jason Smale. Ripa Ride is a community website that allows people to list and book wild adventures like Kombi campers and girls surf lessons. The Bells Beach Tee-Pee was probably one of our favourite family experiences to date. If you could dream up a haven for busy little boys with lots of energy, and surfer dads, this was THE place! It had everything we needed right in front of us - super fun and cosy tee-pee for sleeping, fitted out with snug linen, torches mattresses and cushions. With amazing views across the sea to Winkypop, we loved sitting by the open fire pit as the sun went down to be replaced by millions of starts. For those that like the creature comforts, don't worry, there is also bathroom, shower and cooking facilities on the property too in the big shed, and plenty of great walking trails, surfing lessons and great food (and coffee) in nearby Jan Juc. We all absolutely loved it, and the Globe skate ramp on site was rather a BIG hit with the boys to say the least. I would absolutely love to return to this fabulous little Tee pee in Summer time with a group of friends, a place where you can sit back and watch the view, the kids can run free down the grassy hills, and spot a few Kangaroos while you take in the sunset. The quintessential Australian beach holiday, and did I mention it is only $100 per night! Nothing better than getting out on the open road and we are so glad to have found this lovely place. 

A huge thank you to Marlon for his wonderful hospitality and making us feel so welcome during our stay. Ripa Ride has plenty of other Victorian adventures too that you need to check out from Girls Surf Weekends in Philip Island, Kombi Road Trips and Bike Trails.
