Where are we now….  Looks like travels have come to an end… for now….  Never say it’s time to stop but to pause our nomad lifestyle for a while seems to be the plan.  We wandered around and still love Western Australia.  Unfortunately, we have arrived back for WINTER!!...

Uluru Camel Tours in Ayers Rock.  Definitely recommend the sunset ride, to chill out, enjoy the sunset on back of a camel and good drinks and beer damper at the conclusion of your ride.   All the camels had names ours being  "Tyson".  At the end of the day after just t...

We were out here yesterday on our ride, we had to come back and we booked into the Cape Hillsborough Nature Tourist Park.  The Park itself is in the heart of the National Park where the ocean meets the rainforest, with great grassy sites and swimming pool. We explored...

Escaping on the Bike -  Best days.  Queensland has lots of Rainforest areas and heading into Mackay really wanted to head out for a ride, so became our "Rainforest Ride".

Staying at the “Leap Hotel” free park, right next door to the Leap Hotel a great old pub,...

It’s been around 15 years since we were in 1770 still feels just the same.  Golden sands, crystal clear ocean and blue skies and beautiful sunsets.  A little piece of paradise.  Home to the Great Barrier Reef make sure you go out there and experience it from 1770....
