4wd Holland Track a Thrilling Outback Adventure

4wd Holland Track and Outback AdventureTo 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?

Fitting a snorkel to our Landcruiser

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.

Quarram Nature Reserve, Denmark WA

Don’t you love it when you explore a new area and you have no expectations and therefore you don’t get disappointed.

Dixie loves taking every 4wd track he spots and we often end up on a great adventure.

Whilst we were in Denmark, WA we headed down the South Coast Highway, saw a sign to Boat Harbour and figured it was worth checking out. Heading down the gravel road we spotted a track so we decided to head down it and found ourselves in Quarram Nature Reserve.
