FROM A SUMMIT TO THE VICTORIAN HIGH COUNTRY…COME with us to FIND some more MAGIC!

It’s here on the Upper Murray that Australia’s greatest river is born – one of the world’s longest navigable rivers and an adventurer’s playground just waiting to be explored – quaint little towns, historic bridges, spectacular lookouts, National Parks including the summit of Mt Kosciuszko, free river campgrounds, rugged 4WD tracks, walking tracks and crystal-clear mountain streams.

These wide-open spaces are beckoning for you to sit back under a shady tree, pull on your hiking boots and explore the natural beauty of which we Aussie’s are so proud.

From beaches aplenty to the top of the world – and beyond… the Snowy Mountains to the Mighty Murray!

After enjoying kilometres of walking and mountain bike trails and secluded camping spots over the last week, our final destination was a small town called Tathra where we bid the brilliant blue ocean goodbye and headed inland to the Bega Valley – lush dairy country of rolling hills, and beautiful forested mountains!

From here, our route would continue through the scenic valley that connected Bega and Cooma to the Snowy Mountain Alps and the NSW, Victorian border to the Mighty Murray River!

Heading south of Sydney…

How long do you need for the trip from Woolongong to Tathra… well Google Maps will tell you it will take almost 5-hours to travel a bit under 360-kilometres – that’s non-stop – but if you take your time and enjoy the beautiful little towns, gorgeous National Parks, and pristine coastline… it can take anything up to a week or more!

This road trip is a favourite of ours and after reading this blog you’ll see why… this is one road journey you should put on your bucket list!

The Blue Mountains drive…

The Blue Mountains is a rugged region west of Sydney known for its dramatic scenery, steep cliffs, eucalyptus forests, waterfalls and quaint villages, picturesque valleys, famouse caves, Botanic Gardens, bushwalking trails, scenic railways…. and the storied Three Sisters sandstone rock formations.

If you’re travelling Australia and have a spare couple days, visiting the Blue Mountains is an absolute must. It’s one of our favourite places and whilst we’d advise spending a couple of days exploring if you can… it is very easy to visit on a day trip from Sydney, which would be just a taster to have you coming back time and time again!

The journey from Hawks Nest and the Tea Gardens to Sydney may only be a hop, step and a jump down the road… but if you take the side trip there’s so much to see and do!

With so many wondrous landmarks to see it can be difficult knowing where to visit… but the east coast of Australia is a must-do when you’re planning your next ‘down under’ trip.
We could easily have exited the road from Barrington Tops and driven the Pacific Highway straight through to the Northern Beaches of Sydney only admiring the peaks of the Great Dividing Range in the distance… but instead we left motorway and headed to the beautiful National Parks, stunning beaches and quaint little communities that would otherwise have been bypassed.
Come with us as we explore the Myall Lakes and Central Coast region… some of your most memorable experiences await on the backroads of this coastline!

From Australia’s favourite playground to the legendary Pacific Coast… come on a journey with us from the GOLD COAST to Diamond Head in The fabulous Crowdy Bay National Park

A road trip to us isn’t about the destination but about discovering hidden gems and making memories along the way.
Come on another journey with us and we’ll take you to some of our favourite stops as we drift through peaceful seaside towns full of charisma, authentic Australian culture and soothing waterways bordered by kilometres of cane fields.
From the hinterland to the beach with everything in between, these stops between the Gold Coast and Diamond Head are not to be missed… and hopefully will help to make your next northern NSW coastal road trip as unforgettable as ours!

DISCOVER a piece of PARADISE! THE SUNSHINE COAST HINTERLAND is The perfect place to pull on your walking boots and grab your camera…

It may not be one of Australia’s most renowned regions, but Queensland’s Sunshine Coast Hinterland is certainly Mother Nature’s playground and a place to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy coast and city life.
Treat yourself to the sanctuary of the beautiful towns intertwined with mountains, lakes, waterfalls, and forests… it truly is a beautiful place to be – and the fact its off the beaten track only adds to its allure.

Distances are long, towns are few and far between. This is dinosaur country, Waltzing Matilda country, Qantas country and THE LAND WHERE ICONIC AUSTRALIAN STORIES WERE BORN – this is ‘Outback Queensland’ at its best!

The region is brimming with history and tiny towns just begging to be discovered.

Come with us on a journey through the towns of Outback Queensland… each with a unique and wonderous story to tell.

This big, beautiful country will take a lifetime to explore in full, but these unsung towns should be on every wanderer’s radar as they make their way north, south, east or west!

Sand dunes, salt bushes… and the mighty Simpson Desert!

Dream big and plan your next adventure close to home…

Crossing the Simpson and cresting the legendary sand ridge of Big Red has been high on our ‘really-want-to-do-that list’ since our last visit to Birdsville.

This is a trip where you tick off landmarks, not attractions – the hot mineral waters of Dalhousie Springs and Purni Bore, The Lone Gum, the obligatory photo to mark the meeting of three states at Poeppel Corner, salt lakes, the boggy Eyre Creek, and last but not least the highest dune at 30 metres and the last of more than 1100 – ‘Big Red’.

NOW is the time to explore their own backyard… so sit back and relax in your armchair and come on another incredible journey with us!

From Alice to Australia’s most remote pub… Mt Dare!

Linking the Northern Territory’s Alice Springs with Mt Dare Hotel in South Australia’s Witjira National Park, the Old Andado Track, now known as the Binns Track is a minor dirt road through the western fringe of one of the world’s great sand ridge deserts, namely the Simpson.

This 438-kilometre track from Alice Springs via Santa Teresa and Old Andado Homestead took us a bit over 7-hours and was certainly a good introduction of what to expect on the Simpson Desert.
