Visit Ellenbrae Station, Western Australia

Ellenbrae Station covers 1 million acres in the Kimberley, Western Australia. Approximately 230km from Kununurra on one of Australia’s must-see destinations, the Gibb River Road. The station has become a popular stop over for tourists – with delicious Gibb River Road famous scones. Add it to your list for the dry season.

My adrenaline is still pumping. Good reasons, for that. It is known as a freshwater crocodile spot, friends who walked it the other day said they saw their beady eyes in the torch light. Us? Well we forgot our headlamp, and made do with light from the phone and our kind fellow hikers. So no crocs spotted from us. What to bring? Togs Reef shoes (or something you are

Must Dos in Broome, Western Australia

Cable Beach – Image by Overland Exposure Broome is remote! It is almost 2000 km to drive from Darwin, and over 2000km to Perth. When we initially planned our trip we just couldn’t fit it in. At Home Valley Station, which we had planned as our turnaround spot, we decided to extend our trip. I was so pleased, partly because I would finally see Broome! Here’s what our family loved. 1. Pearl Luggers Seriously don’t miss the Pearl Luggers, it was awesome! We all learnt so much about the industry, the history and early Broome. We tasted pearl meat and

Pildappa Rock reopens and a new campground

Image courtesy Overland Exposure SA’s Pildappa Rock reopens after upgrades and you can now camp nearby at NEW Pildappa Park Campground.

Exploring the Meander Valley, Tasmania

Travelling further afield from Launceston, the Meander Valley Highway is well named. It is so pretty,  you want to take your time exploring,  what I imagine,  a drive through the English countryside might look like – quaint towns, historic buildings, churches and a village green. Driving into Hadspen just on the left as you are coming in off the highway is the Discovery Holiday Park Hadspen.  It has an IGA attached to it, so you can get fuel and supplies here. It was nice to see those little extras on offer as well like a coffee machine in the camp
