Aussie RT Day 7-8: Emma, Manning & Belle Gorge

Aussie RT Day 7-8: Emma, Manning & Belle Gorge

The next few days were all about hiking and swimming. A tough life, I know! In all fairness, the hikes were quite difficult at times and always sweltering hot. The ice cold watering holes we dove in at the end of each gorge were worth the sweat! Each hike and gorge was so different than […]

The Kimberley via Gibb River Road

We have been having some serious fun in the Outback since my last post! It has been hard to catch up on the blog due to lack of internet and electricity. After El Questro we drove deep into the Kimberley to explore the wild wild west! Each day in the Kimberley was spent hiking through […]

Buddy Tyson – A Cultured Coloured Gentleman

Stacy and I were in need of a stiff drink after the heart stopping drive to Saddleback lookout! We should have minded the sign that cautioned the very steep and narrow track but had falsely deemed ourselves to be the experienced 4 x 4 drivers that were allowed to enter. We sat down at the […]

And his name is Hercules … but first let me explain Stacy and I came to be proud owners of a 1995 4WD Jeep Cherokee! When our plane to Darwin landed at 1:00 in the morning, Stacy and I wondered where we would sleep? It seemed silly to spend money on a hostel for only […]

Two Killed in Camel Crash

I love to read the local papers when visiting a new town. Yesterday this article caught my attention on the front page of the Northern Territory News… Two killed in Camel Crash… After their vehicle hit a camel on a remote Outback Hwy last night. The accident occurred at 8 pm in a landcruiser, help […]

The Outback!

The Outback!

Alice Springs is located in the center of the country and is part of the Northern Territory. I was able to see all of Alice Springs in one day. I can’t believe Jenny has lived in Alice for 5 weeks; I would have died of boredom! Alice Springs is literally in the middle of the […]
