A darling of a drive

The very essence upon which many of our famous Australian poets have based some of their beautiful poetry including Henry Lawson is the stunning Australian Outback, and for good reason. Although a harsh and unforgiving landscape it is also a place of wonder and inspiration that will uplift the spirits. On this journey of discovery…

The next adventure

As the weather cools and with beautiful snow on the forecast for our abode high up on the Central Tablelands of NSW, the cruiser is packed once again and ready to hit the road for the next adventure. Where to and what awaits us out there, we guess you will just have to wait and…

Time to reminisce – Tasmania 2006 adventure part 1

About 10 years had passed since we had visited the beautiful Apple Isle and without ever camping there it was well and truly time to pack the Rodeo and point the bonnet south. We had fallen in love with Tassie the first time we ventured to this tiny island state and had always yearned to…

Time to reminisce – Weekend Getaways 2

Only about a month after our  mid north coast getaway we were itching to escape again and with a couple nights up our sleeve we decided our weekend getaway would be a bit closer to home this time. (Once again please excuse the quality of the photos in this post as we are going back…

Time to Reminisce – Weekend Getaways 1

Hot on the heals of our first multi week camping trip to outback NSW and beyond we were craving what is termed now as the Overlander way of escaping the daily grind. So in September of 2006 only a couple months since returning from the outback our feet were getting itchy to hit the back…

Basing ourselves in Carnarvon for a couple nights we decided to explore north up the coast visiting Quobba Blowholes and Quobba Point before venturing further north along an outstanding coastal drive, albeit rough in places to Quobba Station and Red Cliffs. Although the famous blowholes were not “blowing” for us this turned out to be…

Summer Escapes

With the festive season upon us and the mercury rising we thought we would share a few of our favourite beachside escapes for summer up and down the beautiful NSW coast. There is just so many to choose from but here is a few of our all time favourites. Up the north coast lying between…

Time to reminisce – Pilbara Part 5

Back on the road we ventured south east along the increasingly busy Northern Highway pulling into the picturesque Opthalmia Dam located off the road  to Marble Bar for a barbecue lunch. A top bird watching spot we only wished we had more time to spend here and tick a few more off the list but…

Time to reminisce – Pilbara Part 4

Having explored the Pilbara coast it was time to head inland and see what the interior of the Pilbara had to offer. To say we were impressed would be an understatement. If the Pilbara in Western Australia isn’t on your radar or bucket list then it should be. After leaving Port Hedland and the coast…
