Oh! This reminds me of the 70s when the VW bus was such a popular means of transportation here. :)
The 70's is still very much alive in the Clarence Valley, this photo was taken at an epicentre of 70's culture, Angourie Village! Although I think this is a toyota we regularly see Combi vans about the place as well.
VW are very good in our hot dry climate, being air cooled and not needing water.http://woodsrunnersdiary.blogspot.com/
Yes I agree a very 70's scene
