Summertime in the Australian Outback – Cairns to Alice Springs, Uluru to Port Augusta

We only had carry on bags so we pushed our luck showing up at the Brisbane airport 10 minutes before boarding time. It’s a bad habit that I’m sure will one day backfire but until itContinue reading “Summertime in the Australian Outback – Cairns to Alice Springs, Uluru to Port Augusta”

Brisbane to Rainbow Beach….Almost

Our first official day of the road trip! As we mentioned in the last post we started slow, fighting a combination of rush hour, weekend and school holiday traffic getting out of the city.

Australia – The Adventure Begins

Being back in Australia has been incredible so far, for Carly it’s always great to be home and for me there has been a real sense of familiarity after our brief visit last year.

Mexico to Australia – The good, the bad & the ugly

After 17 glorious days in Mexico with family and friends for the wedding we’re ready to start our honeymoon adventure travelling around Australia’s east coast.
