If you have wondered what it is like to travel fulltime in a Jayco Camper Trailer we have shared our experience. We packed up our family and spent an amazing 3+ months travelling Western Australia and the Northern Territory. We have a 2016 Jayco Eagle Outback and we were a little nervous to see if it would survive off road tracks such as The Gibb River Road.
I can’t believe we are about to hit the road and travel Australia for 3 months! I started this blog 6 years ago and in one of my first posts, I mentioned our dream was to travel Australia as a family. It has taken a while to get there but now our dream is finally becoming a reality.
Who doesn’t like saving money or getting some sort of value for spending their hard earnt dollars? In less than a month, we will be hitting the road full-time and I have looked at ways we can save a buck here or there.
At the beginning of the month, Perth and it’s surrounding areas copped a battering with thunderstorms. Records were smashed, within 24 hours we received the average rainfall for the whole month of March! With so much water around, we decided to take advantage of the situation and explore the Avon River. We also wanted to do a test run of our new Bushman Fridge and Companion 200W Solar Blanket before we embark on our Aussie Road Trip.
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 »
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.
We went back to where it all started, where Dixie and I met! Dixie was travelling around
Australia, living out of his Troop Carrier and I was in town supporting a friend doing the Busselton Iron Man. A conversation was struck between us at the Esplanade Hotel and well the rest is history!
Busselton holds a special place in our hearts and we decided to return for a family holiday. Busselton is a small coastal town set on the calm waters of the Geographe Bay south of Perth. It is a great place to enjoy the outdoors with plenty of cycle paths, beaches and the locals are very friendly.Read More »
