A highlight of our lap was Karijini National Park, Western Australia Are you considering doing “The Lap” with your teens? In our family, it was not even discussed if the teens were coming or not. That was an option we didn’t consider. It was 7 weeks together as family – and it was so good, we kept going around Australia, returning 3 months later. Our crew were 15 along with 13, 10 and 8. We created wonderful memories and time together – squished in a six-berth motorhome. The 13 year old was adamant she was flying home from Perth! But,

You can tell if they have toilets,
