Australia’s best 4wd tracks

Australian Geographic has just released this list of their top ten 4wd tracks in Australia. It’s a handy quick-look guide, but I reckon we’ve done some others that come close.  Might have to compile our own top ten list. But for now, enjoy reading theirs – Best 4wd Tracks    

On the south-east road again

You can’t beat butterflies. The ones that rumble around in your tummy as you pull out of the driveway, all packed and ready to go. That sense of anticipation of what might lie ahead is addictive.
