To Travel Around Australia: It’s something many people dream of doing.

To pack up your house, leave your comfortable lifestyle behind and hit the road to discover new places and venture to the remote (and not so remote) corners of our country.

Whether its by caravan, motorhome, camper trailer, 4×4 or tent- it’s unpatriotic not to spend a bit of time exploring your big backyard!

It’s not just for retirees- lots of families are bucking the trend of ‘normal life’ and hitting the road every year in droves to see what all the fuss is about. Even its is only for a few months- its all about going!

Make your OWN memories….Start your journey today, the highway is waiting!


We are just an average family of 5 who have been  full-time travellers since March 2010. We created this website to serve as a general resource on various aspects and topics relating to caravanning, camping, road tripping and long term family based travel- simply our own personal views!

Whether its trip planning, budgeting for travel, fitting out a touring vehicle, choosing an RV or other ‘nitty gritty’ topics relating to life on the road. We hope that you may find some of our articles of interest, particularly if you are in the planning stages of some extended travel yourself. But also if you just like getting away for short camping trips whenever possible.

You will find our articles in the tabs at the top of the page or click a topic below!

We are really enjoying what our country has to offer us and our 3 kids.

We know that our kids are having some amazing experiences whilst travelling Australia and learning far more than they ever would in a classroom. We are experiencing something truly amazing as a family. Making memories along the way!

And it has surprised me just how ‘little’ you need to be able to do ‘so much’.


We have a Facebook page that we regularly update with our personal travel photos and blog entries. We would love it if you would pop over and ‘like’ our Page and interact with us!
