In my opinion, Fraser Island is the best place in the whole of Australia and you will agree with me if you like clear lakes, white sands and hurtling down a beach at 80 km/h in a Landrover. This was my first time driving on a beach and the feeling of swaying through the sands while dodging the waves was very surreal.
I set out to hook-up a small charge controller to my inverter, battery bank, and solar panels. My cabin is totally powered by two 100-watt solar panels except for the times I need to fire up a generator to power things when I've had too many cloudy days or need more power. I've run an air conditioner on 100-degree days by running the generator.
