Families doing the Lap

Hi
I would love to know if anyone is currently travelling with their kids around Oz. I am currently planning to leave with my 2 (10 & &) early next year & would love to chat with others who can offer advice as the blogs I have found are now outdated.
Thanks in advance!!

Hi Lesley,
If you have a Facebook account there are a number of groups with families traveling and there is a reasonable amount of discussion on schooling etc. Try https://www.facebook.com/groups/FOTR.Australia/ which is under the name 'Families on the Road- Travelling Australia'.

I'm gobsmacked at the number of young families traveling around Australia now.

All the best,
PeteS

Looks like just the thing :) I cant wait to get going but a little daunted at planning it all by myself!

Thanks Toonfish, I stumbled across their site yesterday, just what I was looking for! May I ask what you are travelling in, camper or van?

Up till recently we were in a 06 Goldstream storm off rd
Great van but on short overnight trips it was easier setting up our campertrailer winding up and pulling beds awnings out so we sold the van and have gone back to a off rd camper trailer to do the west coast as it's fairly rough up here
All good :)
