    Waltzing Matilda
    After a 4 week road trip around Northern Queensland and the Northern Territory, we spent our last night at the Combo Waterhole near Kynuna.  It is reputedly the place that was the inspiration behind Banjo Patterson's 'Waltzing Matilda'.  So in honour of this unofficial national anthem of Australia, we sang our little hearts out. Apologies for not doing the song any justice, but we had fun :)This was not officially a camp site, however it was certainly an awesome way to... read more

    Our first family holiday
    As our daughter will be turning two next June we thought it would be the best time to take her to see all the sights Western Australia's Coral Coast has to offer and what better way but a driving holiday with a Campervan. That way we can be as flexible as she wants and stop whenever things get a little hectic, as travelling with a toddler will! read more

    On mY Way
    I would fulfill a "Dream" touring Australia. Any person I have met that has visited or travelled to Australia has claimed it to be one of their greatest life experiences. I would travel from start to finish taking in any little experience I could fit in my time on the road. I would eat, drink and enjoy the people, culture and warmth of the weather.  read more

    The Great Australian (Letterbox) Road Trip
    Which is the greater rite of passage – visiting far-flung exotic countries or knowing you’ve seen a thing or two in your own backyard? It’s one thing to conquer Europe with 30 other people on a bus, but there's just something about heading off and exploring your own turf on a great Australian road trip.While we travel these highways and back roads, we’re on a mission to discover the best letter boxes in Australia. We’ve travelled thousands of kilometres in... read more

    A TripThat Shaped My Life
    Back in the 60's when I was just 13, I experienced a road trip which was to shape the rest of my life. My father took my younger brother and myself to Roebourne in the north of W.A. We left from Perth in an old station wagon on mainly gravel roads and slept out at night on the ground usually near dry creek beds. We met an artist camped at Python pool. He used to camp for weeks... read more
    "Elusive" because it would have to be a miracle or a lotto win for my family to go on a road trip. But it would be so much fun planning this holiday so please please pick me and I promise we'll have the best holiday. We'd sing the Cliff Richards song "were all going on a summer holiday" as we vroomed off down the highway. read more

    My names Shelley and I have a bit of an addiction.I LOVE to travel. I love everything about it. Even the hours spent in cars (although I prefer luxury motor homes!) and airports, on planes and trains as it all eventually gets me to somewhere new and interesting!Last year my husband, my parents, my sister and I went to Darwin. That little city was an eye opener for me. How can such a small town pack so much punch?Every corner had... read more

    Headed North
    Joing the ranks of other intrepid travellers my partner and I journeyed to the great northern region of Western Australia. We took along our faithful hounds and headed off via the new Indian Ocean Drive. Our adventure took us through new terrain, between 2 cyclones and along a coast blessed with a wealth of rare magnificance. We found new ways to engage in daily activities, a booty of paraphernalia whilst beach combing and wildlife to be in awe of. The... read more

    Northern Territory Revival
    Kakadu in July was like a waterfall rushing down over our senses. The beautiful water lilies,  formidable crocs, ancient aboriginal art, luscious Yellow Water wetlands with their wealth of wildlife washed the southern winter blues from our bodies. With our motorhome we were free to extend our stay at any beautiful spot or cruise to the next enticing region all within short distance. Without exception the bluest of blue lagoon at Berry Springs matches the most beautiful watering holes around... read more
