    Outback Queensland
    In July 2011 we hired a Cheaper campa in Cairns for two weeks.  We had no set plans of where we wanted to go so we took the turn up onto the Atherton tablelands and headed west than north until we reached the Gulf.  Then we went south  to Cloncurry and across to Mount Isa before returning to Brisbane.  We had the most wonderful holiday and are looking forward to our next adventure travelling from Perth up to Broome in...

    Much wanted parental supervision!
    Emigrating to Australia was the result of many years of preparation and planning for myself and my fiancé and our new life on the other side of the globe was everything we ever dreamed off. After over 2 years, we were well and truly settled but unfortunately, since we started to work almost immediately after arriving we hadn’t had the opportunity to venture further than Victoria and so much of our new country was unknown to us. Last November my parents...

    Wishful thinking!
    We have plans to travel from Perth to Darwin next year and see as much as possible along the way.  We have some Japanese friends who would like to come with us because they want to see some of Western Australia. Our first attempt at motorhoming was in Queensland in 2011 and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves once we got the hang of it!!  A fantastic way to see Australia.

    Inspiring Families to Road Trip Around Australia!
    The Barnsley’s love road tripping around Australia! In 2004 we drove as far and wide as our old Ute and vintage caravan would take us. We had the time of our lives! We benefitted as a family so much that we started our own blog to encourage and inspire other families to hit the road. Our blog has more than three thousand visitors each month!  Unfortunately we missed out on touring many places on our Australian road trip as we...

    Eclipse honeymoon.....
    My fiance has just given birth, we are planning a wedding in September & there is a festival in Cairns with the chance of a life time to see a solar eclipse, where we would like to spend our honeymoon.

    The other side
    Last year we embarked on a RTW trip with our two boys aged 12 and 9.  We spent 5 weeks in Australia and 5 weeks in New Zealand, most of that time was spent in a Cheapa Campa 6 berth camper van.  We had never hired a camper van before, but by the end of the Australia trip, we were well and truly hooked and ended up hiring again in New Zealand. Initially we were a bit apprehensive; first of all...

    Road trip across Australia
    40 days and 40 nights across Cheapa Campa!!!  The coolest ride of my life started in late 2010 when me and my hubby decided that we wanted to see all of Australia before leaving the country for good ( we were both on student visas). As all students are, we were on a very tight budget. I have this nasty habit of bargain hunting till I drop dead. Thankfully, I didn't have to look long and finally found the best...

    Aussie Dreams
    Ahhh to sleep per chance to dream, to dream to wake to find it true.  My family would be in seventh heaven with a motorhome trip in beautiful Australia.  It seems every year my husband and I take separate "duty visit" vacations to see family in far off places.  It is high time we had a family holiday all together, and Australia we are looking at you.
