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. It sets the tone for every trip and the hours of planning, preparing and packing disappear into the rearview…

Somewhere on the south coast

Somewhere between Bremer Bay and Cape Arid on the beautiful south coast of WA was our destination. This was leaving our options open given it is about a 300km stretch of coast.  Our criterion was simple: a place to launch the tinny, a camp site where you are able to see the water and no…

Nanga Mill and Capt. Fawcett

The hills are steep but the puddles not deep… yet. We had a great time away at Dwellingup in mid-May.  Arranged to meet a few MySwag people who we hadn’t met before so it was logistically a bit hard in a big open campground when the weather forecast is magic.  But we found a great…

Dingo and dug outs

After a very warm evening in William Creek and a nice pub meal, we got up at 5:30am and headed off to the western edge of Lake Eyre north at Halligan’s Bay and ABC Bay.  The Dog stayed in the camper and had a nice quiet sleep-in. It was 65km of rocky, sandy, corrugated track…

Flinders Ranges & Merna Mora Station

After leaving Mt Ive we called through Port Augusta to shop and re-fuel.  We arrived at Merna Mora station, just west of the ranges, around 3pm and set up camp 3km south of the homestead next to a dry creek.  For the next three days, we travelled into the Flinders Ranges, through Parachilna and Brachina…
