    Went camping out in nth nsw last week ,in a free overnight 22 hour stay campervan area,i was the only person there till this very large campervan - bus pulls up just on sun set and parks next to me ,within 5 minutes all the sides of the bus come out and he's set up and and he walks over to say hello..

    Turns out this guy 53 years old never married,24 year old lady,travels with him,and he's on 954k after tax out of what his father trust fund set up and has over 50 factories,and a family estate of over 1500 of land outside melbourne on morningtons peninsula ,,told me how his father started with one small factory ,worked 7 days a week ,and never looked back,him and his brother control everything,very very simple people,never ever meet anyone like that before in my life..they live in a different world

    Yep, there's lots of wealthy people out there. Somersoft / Propertychat is probably only like 1% :)

    I have a similar story.
    Man works 7 days a week.
    Since 1970's has bought properties (mostly resi) in fitzroy, Collingwood, parkville, Richmond.
    Lived very simply, worked and worked.
    Dropped dead of a stroke at 54.

    Left it all to his 2 daughters, aged mid twenties.
    $55,000,000 of properties with no debt attached... I can't recall what the rental role was on the portfolio..

    The girls are not interested in them and now wish to sell them all off..

    What he was saying was that the trust his father had set-up was something i don't understand ,they have the income compounding
    then a 10 million fund to buy what ever they want at 2.7 interest,but it must stay within the trust for ever but what they control is massive from the business card he gave me ,and the quick checks i did ,as with the 24 year old Asian Lady she did say that much
    but she was a Accountant that worked for him,it's good to talk around a campfire with and understand the way people think..

    Probably less once you minus debt.

    Ha, I would be the opposite! If I had that much money I would be driving into campsite upon campsite all over aus. It wouldn't be in one of the campervans Willair described though - it would be something more suited to some serious off roading.

    Butler would be too busy making you drinks, I recommend a dedicated driver.

    Yeah, never trust coasties or weird oversharers in large campervans.

    I have found during my travels that it is more social to meet and have fun with people while staying at average priced resorts and backpackers than 5 star hotels. But yes luxury is good of course

    Need to correct everyone. I love nature but if I had the money my preference would be to chopper or fly in.

    If I had that much money I would drive my Porsche into the campsite and have someone else tow the caravan and set it up for me. Nothing too ostentatious - about 22 foot should be plenty big enough. Do they have free campsites amongst the wineries?
