Leaving The Cape – part II

CREB track to Farewell Cape York.. …hello East Coast winds! WE ARE HERE After completing the Frenchman’s track with flying colours we continued to head south down the development road. A quick stop at our favourite camp north of Coen on the river for a ‘shower’ and relax away from the corrugations, then onto Musgrave…

Leaving The Cape

Saying goodbye to The Cape …but the Ausventure’s not over yet! We’d made it all the way to the top of Cape York, but there was still heaps to see and do on our way back down. Plenty more dirt, dust and 4WDing to do, with some great camping along the way. FRENCHMANS TRACK After…

Our Jeep

Our Jeep Wrangler 2013 4-door auto 3.6 WE ARE HERE Love it or hate it the Jeep is something everyone likes to talk about. Travelling round Oz we spoke to those who hate them, want one, actually have one, or had one and it broke. It certainly helped us stand out from the crowd and…

It is quite well organised (rather formal), huge and packed with fisher folk from all around Australia. You need…

TWO WEEKS INTO OUR 4 MONTH ODESSEY

We headed north from Longreach, towards Muttaburra, the “road” for much of the way is two wheel tracks over dead flat, black soil plain. Thankfully there had not been any rain recently.

4 MONTHS ON THE ROAD IS NOT LONG ENOUGH!

On 13th May 2013 my wife and I left on a 4 month “odyssey” we had started planning to undertake 6 months earlier after she had finally retired from her lifelong “underpaid and overworked love” – teaching mathematics. We have owned Tvans since 2002 and had undertaken many short trips into Northern SA, Western NSW,…
