Heading off-road and hitting the tracks is something we often do. We are either with friends or explore on our own. Going solo can be a little risky, if you don’t know the area you may run into trouble.Read More »
We’ve recently improved our self-sufficient setup for camping. It started with Dixie receiving an XTM 120watt solar blanket for a recent birthday. To complement the blanket we purchased a Redarc BCDC 1225D to help keep our auxiliary battery fully charged. We also upgraded our fridge due to necessity.Read More »
Finally, Dixie has joined the 40’s club! He’s a bloke who loves the outdoors, camping and 4wding. When Whitegum Farm popped up on my Instagram feed I knew this would be the perfect spot to celebrate his birthday.Read More »
Easter has to be one of my favourite holidays. There is no pressure to find the perfect gift or cook fancy food. For us, it is about spending quality time together and going camping at Easter has become a bit of a tradition.

I mean the thought of spending days on end in a car with small children is enough to send anyone into a panic attack. What I didn’t expect was to be intrigued by the pioneer John Holland and his life.

A blank page in the diary for the weekend was staring at me! Do we stay home and get some chores done or go camping? Before you know it we were getting ready to spend a night in the bush.
