Come with us as we wander through the River Red Gum forests and splash around on the sandy river beaches of the ‘Mighty Murray River’!

The mighty and ancient Murray River has shown us her many colours and moods as we have followed her west to Echuca but our journey does not end here.

Come with us as we journey along the banks of Australia’s longest river and explore and experience its lasting beauty.

Even in drought this mighty river still has a graceful magic about it as it flows into South Australia on its path to the ocean.

ON THE ROAD AGAIN… our next adventure begins as we head to the Victorian High Country!

If you are looking for somewhere to visit in Victoria, the Victorian High Country is up there with the best;  the 4WDing was exciting yet not too extreme, the free camping was amazing, the creeks were crystal clear, there was plenty of firewood for campfires, and there was something to see at every turn… be it a breathtaking view or an historic hut.

From Outback Birdsville to the white sands of the Gold Coast…

It was time to leave Outback Birdsville and head east, back to the white sandy beaches of the sunny Gold Coast and the beautiful surf beaches of Surfers Paradise and Coolangatta.
The next leg of our journey would take us through the little outback towns of south east Queensland – Betoota, Windorah, Quilpie, Charleville, Morven, Mitchell, Roma, Miles, Chinchilla, Dalby, Toowoomba, Warwick and lastly, Beaudesert.

Oodnadatta Track…

The legendary Oodnadatta Track is an unsealed, 615-kilometre road between Marla on the Stuart Highway, and Marree in the northern Flinders Ranges and at the southern end of the Birdsville Track.

The track traces the route of the old Overland Telegraph Line and the Old Ghan Railway.

Along the way were remote settlements, lots of history, quirky desert sights and the enormous, Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre.

There were some creek crossings, a few rutted and flooded sections from the recent rain, mud, dust, heat and millions of flies but the landscape was beautiful and camping under the night sky with millions of stars was amazing.

South of Alice – South Australia bound…

We left Alice hoping the rain gods had permanently headed north.

No one could tell us if the Oodnadatta and Birdsville Tracks had opened but with a clear forecast for a few days to come, we pointed Harry Hilux south and headed through Heavitree Gap then turned right at the sign which said ‘Adelaide’.

As Alice disappeared in the rear view mirror, we set course for our next big adventure.

The long road north of Alice…

This blog records our adventure from a previous trip as we continued north of Alice Springs along the Stuart Highway.

We travelled through more of the unique outback towns of the Northern Territory as we followed the long straight road through to Kakadu, Darwin and Litchfield.

This was our second visit to the Top End, when only months earlier, we had exited from our more rugged crossing of the Gulf Savannah – another epic adventure on our recent Australian trip.

Join us at the crossroads and head north to Darwin… or east and read all about our Gulf Country experience. 

The road to Alice Springs and the West and East MacDonnell Ranges…

As Alice disappeared in the rear view mirror, we set course for our next big adventure.

Travel north with us to Darwin… or stayed tuned as we head south for the Oodnadatta Track.

Crossing the iconic Great Central Road…

Our adventure is jam packed with more great stories as our journey takes us to Laverton then across the iconic but flooded Great Central Road that leads through the middle of the country to one of Australia’s most famous landmarks – Uluru.

Reflecting on our journey we felt very fortunate to have been able to travel this iconic road before it was sealed – so be sure to check out our blog… there are so many special places to visit along the way!

From reef to rock… Ningaloo to Karijini National Park…

If you’ve never heard of Karijini you soon will once you start working your way up or down the coast of Western Australia! People as far away as Cape York were asking; ‘are you going to Karijini?’… and it didn’t take us long to work out it was a place not to be missed… so fill your life with adventure… pack the car, grab a map – we’re heading to the Pilbara again!

For all those people out there following our blog… don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

From Ore to Awe – immerse yourself in nature at its very best – Coral Bay, Cape Range National Park & Ningaloo

From ore to awe, this coast has it all… beautiful beaches, coral reefs, deep gorges and incredible sunsets where the rustic red and the beautiful blue of the the Indian Ocean flood the landscape! The coastal region of northern Western Australia was truly remarkable.
