Nullarbor trip

Crossing the Nullarbor – our adventure from Western Australia into South Australia

On the end of our Big Lap, on limited time, we traversed The Nullarbor in two days. Kids were due back at school, we had businesses to run but were so keen to experience this famed road trip. We left Esperance and the beauty of Cape Le Grand National Park, through Grass Patch and the heart of Mallee Country. The Nullarbor Plain begins in Norseman, Western Australia – we saw camels here, which was pretty cool. “The Nullarbor” is an 1100km route. Here’s where we stopped: Balladonia was a lunch stop with a pretty multicoloured picket fenced playground. Oh, we were so

Planning a big lap? Part 4 – Augusta, WA to ACT

Take our final journey of our Aussie Big Lap! This section starts us from Augusta WA, where you watch two oceans meet from the top of Australia’s tallest lighthouse!

Our Aussie big lap with the kids – part 1

If you are considering an Aussie big lap, here’s ours! Go ten years back – when our kids were 14, 13, 10 and 8, all jampacked in a tin can. At the time we owned the local paper – so our Australia road trip was chronicled every month. As I planned, nomad friends told us about a book we must buy – and marked their must sees in it for us! Who’d have thought a few years later we’d be the owner of CAMPS and making our trips “work and play”! Here’s our first update from Back o’ Bourke in
