    Road Trip to Exmouth
    My Ultimate Trip.. I travelled from New South Wales to Bunbury Western Australia to House/Pet Sit for a couple of months. I ended up staying nearly a year. I volunteered at the Dolphin Discovery Centre which was a great experience learning about the marine life and Dolphins. I was lucky enough to even go on a few swim tours and swim with these wild amazing creatures in there habitat. I met lots of other travellers from all around Australia and... read more

    Splendour In the Grass with Hippie Camper
    The team was rallied, tickets were miraculously purchased and all that stood in the way of our path to Splendour In The Grass 2012 victory were the sleeping arrangements. Any experienced multi day festival doer knows how one sleeps governs stamina levels and in turn overall showoffability in post festival “were you there when” stories. No amount of tightly woven nylon or neatly cocooned dacron was going to save us from the knee deep sucking mud, torrential rain and bullet hail... read more

    Monkey Mia Wild Dolphins
    It's 2004 and I'm taking my daughter Camellia on a road trip from Perth to Monkey Mia. The Western Australia Outback Coast is so beautiful and unspoilt. We spot many seals and turtles. How lucky Camellia is to be able to hand feed a dolphin that swims free in the ocean, as dolphins rightfully should. A very memorable trip! read more

    Doing it Tough
    We decided to take a road trip to Queensland from Sydney in our Holden with our 3 children. Everyone was getting tired and we thought we would just camp under the stars instead of paying for a Motel. It seemed like a nice evening so we pitched a tarpaulin over the roof of the holden and placed some banana beds under it. Mind you there was only 2 beds between 2 adults and 3 children. We snuggled up together watched... read more

    A Trip that you only want to do once
    My story starts as i board a bus in Townsville, it was the cheapest way to get to Brisbane at the time. Typically the journey from Townsville to Brisbane is a long one and boring, so night time travel is preferred as you get to sleep, be it in uncomfortable Seats.The Trip is going as is expected and several hours into it I awake due to a sore neck, within the next 30 minutes, the worst thoughts happened.The Bus driver... read more

    Proposal at Uluru
    Six months after setting foot on Australian soil, me and my then-boyfriend, Tim, drove off into the sunset in a campervan and went exploring for the rest of the year. I tackled my fear of funnel webs, learned how to wash clothes in the small basin we had and saw the most amazing things of my life!!!! we travelled ina figure of eight from Sydney down through Victoria, around to SA and up to Uluru. Then the plan was to head... read more

    All we have to be is happy
    Me and my boyfriend met at the end of 2009. Both of us are keen on kitesurfing but we don't like the crowded beaches in Europe even when you get up at 5 in the morning to get a chance to have a beach for yourself. So it became clear very early that we needed to go to a country with few people and a stunning nature. The idea was born. We need to go to New Zealand. But I... read more

    Splendour in the Mud!
    When I saw the lineup for Splendour in the Grass 2012, I knew I had to be there. I called up a mate from Melbourne, said we had to go and we squealed like little school girls! Fast forward a few weeks and it’s time to start our ultimate weekend which we dubbed, “Fear and Bro-thing in Byron Bay”.We picked up our Hippie Camper from Brisbane on the Friday morning, and after a jump start, we were on our way... read more

    Road Solace
    My hands ache just as much as my eyes, the lines of the road pierce my pupils and dehydrate my thoughts. I must pull over but these parts are not familiar to me and a fear time would rob us of the effort in our heart. My girls head rocks back and forward as she struggles to keep consciousness. Cast in a mould of beauty her innocent attempts to protect me from the gravity of my dreams makes the trip... read more
