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

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

This is what we reckon Mums and Dad’s ticklist for educating young campers is: 1 PICK UP Leave an area tidier than you found it. If a bin is overflowing, take your rubbish with you. Simples!
