One of the most enjoyable things about heading off into this wonderous land we call Australia is the anticipation it brings, of things that we will see, experiences to be had, and of course the characters you meet along the way.
Over the past month or so we have been thumbing the pages of our well-worn Australian map book as we plan an adventure to the Northern Territory, Gulf Savannah, and the Atherton Tablelands.
And yes, as some of you might recall we were recently touring the Atherton Tablelands, but with so much to see and experience in that part of Australia, you can’t visit enough! Besides, it is much warmer than the cold temperatures of southern Australia at this time of year.
COVID-19 restrictions aside, as they come and go, we have had a forced ‘lay-up’ as our touring vehicle undergoes an overhaul of the essential ‘bits and pieces’ to ensure it remains well prepared for remote area touring. Having it in tip top condition before driving out the front-gates goes a long way to ensuring (relatively) trouble free travel.
In the meantime, as we count down to pointing ourselves northwards, we’ll enjoy photographs of past trips into this great country, Australia…

We love the colours of the Australian Outback, the red earth touching a blue sky on a faraway horizon; and the fabulous coastline of our sunburnt country, where a golden sandy beach is washed over by a warm turquoise blue sea…
A few years ago, we graduated from work and re-entered the classroom of life where an education is guaranteed and all that is needed is an open mind.
Cheers, Baz & Janet
