To tell you the truth I was a little nervous about doing the Holland Track. I didn’t really know what to expect. I just knew we would be in a remote part of Western Australia 4wding for 3 days. Thoughts were running through my head like what if the kids get hurt or sick? What if we breakdown and can’t get help?

Summer Holidays are for hitting the beach with a bit of 4 wheel driving thrown in for fun.

In search for our own private beach to have lunch and relax. Taking our time to explore the coast line.Read More »
My partner Dixie fitted a snorkel to our 100 series Landcruiser. I must admit I was a little nervous when I could hear drilling coming from outside. Then my two year old ran inside and said “look what Daddy is doing, he is putting holes in the car”. Shh don’t tell but I was thinking to myself maybe a professional should be doing this. Turns out I had nothing to worry about as he did a great job.
Anyway I will let Dixie explain the process of fitting the snorkel.Read More »
