In My Backyard: Coolangatta & The Tweed

Locals refer to Coolangatta and Tweed Heads as the ‘Twin Towns’ as they sit side by side on the Queensland/New South Wales border on the southern end of the Gold Coast. Here the vibe is very different to the more popular touristy Surfers Paradise. The beaches are less crowded, the surf is pumping, there is…

The Road Ahead: The Kimberley

This is part two of ‘The Road Ahead’ as we ventured into probably one of the most remote wildernesses in Australia, The Kimberley in north-western Australia. It consists of ancient, steep-sided mountain ranges carved through with sandstone and limestone gorges and steep ridges from which the extreme monsoonal climate has removed much of the soil. This…

Discovering Outback Queensland: Camooweal to Emerald

Discovering Outback Queensland: Camooweal to Emerald

We crossed the border into our home state of Queensland after leaving Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory. The countryside was stark and barren with wide expanses of flat plains with little vegetation and a roadside that was littered with dead Kangaroos. Discovering Outback Queensland was a revelation. We found it to be largely affected…

Through the Centre: Larrimah to Tennant Creek

Departing from the tropical ‘top end’ of The Territory we headed south on the Stuart Highway, also known as Explorer’s Way, through the centre of Australia. The landscape suddenly transformed from lush greens to red dirt and vast shrubby plains to rocky Spinifex covered tablelands. We soon realized that we were in the real ‘dinky die’ outback…

Katherine boasts ten national parks and…

Into The Territory

Into The Territory

After being wowed by the ‘Wild West’ of Australia, we crossed the border into maybe the most quintessentially ‘Australian’ of all the Australian States, the Northern Territory. Despite its large area  of over 1,349,129 square kilometres, the Northern Territory is sparsely populated. It only has a population of 233,300, making it is the least populous…

Pillaging the Pilbara Coast

Tracking north from Exmouth through rural plains of vast cattle stations and deep red earth, that seemingly gets into every crevice and even turned the coat of our white Labrador into a light reddish tan, the landscape changed to magnificent hills and mountain ranges.  We were entering the Pilbara region, with rugged hills, harsh red…
