Aussie RT Day 18-20: Cape Range National Park

Aussie RT Day 18-20: Cape Range National Park

We were starting to get the feeling that perhaps Joel wasn’t enjoying traveling with two girls. Whenever he spotted another guy, he would immediately ditch us to hang with a bloke. We kept running into a group of four he had met in Darwin that were on our same route. We weren’t too surprised when […]

Aussie RT Day 15-17 – Karijini National Park

Aussie RT Day 15-17 – Karijini National Park

When we arrived in Broome we posted a sign offering a ride to Perth to anyone willing to share in the cost of petrol. We received a few responses and ended up picking Joel, a 23 year old British guy who seemed very easy going and wanted to do the same things we did on […]

Thelma & Louise battle the flies!

Thelma & Louise battle the flies!

Australian flies are relentless in their persuit of entering all holes in your face. I have eaten more flies than I wish to recount. They often emerge at the most beautiful of settings, determined to challenge your will be be one with nature.  They will pester you until you find yourself cursing and having ongoing […]

Aussie RT Day 14: Dampier Peninsula

Aussie RT Day 14: Dampier Peninsula

After the croc drove us out of Broome we decided to take a detour and head north to explore the Dampier Peninsula, which we heard was beautifully rugged and can only be explored with a 4WD. We love taking Hercules place his 2WD friends can’t go! The craggy coastline was absolutely gorgeous, the peninsula felt […]

Aussie RT Day 10-13: Croc terrorizes Broome!

The Gibb River Road ended in the town of Derby which wasn’t much to see so we continued west to Broome. We were both surprised we made it all the way through the Gibb without any mishaps or flat tires! The only explanation – we are bad ass four wheel driving chicas and Hercules is […]

Aussie RT Day 9:  Tunnel Creek & Windjana Gorge

Tunnel Creek flows through a water-worn tunnel beneath the limestone of the Napier Range – part of an extensive fossilized barrier reef from Devonian times 360 million years ago. The tunnel is the most ancient cave system in Western Australia. The 750 meter trek through the pitch black tunnel had us wading through waist high […]

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

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

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 […]
