The Travellingblooms are off in 3 weeks for our 7 month trip around Australia.

It has been months in the planning and I would like to thank everone who has responded to my posts on caravan questions.

We have a Galaxy Southern Cross Family Van (brand new) with shower, toilet, bunks for the kids and all the comforts we need for the trip. (Van will be for sale at the end of the trip if anyone is interested). Towing it with a Landcruiser.

This will be a life experience for us and especially for our 2 kids. Looking forward to seeing our country and meeting lots of decent people along the way.

7 months off work, precious time with my family, we do live in "the lucky country". :-)

Hope your trip goes well. What's the bet you don't sell your van at the end. If the travel bug gets you that van may be with you for life.....now just a little question. Are you also packing a tent for some of the out of the way places or are you not visiting those and saving that for when the kids are off your hands.
Happy Exploring OZ.......

Have a wonderful and safe trip. Sounds fabulous - you have to give us a trip report when you get home from the big adventure.

Hi there,
Good on you to get away,
we are retired but the kids & grandkids seem to prevent us from getting away with all their problems & getting married & having more offspring & all that...however at last we are leaving on the 23rd May (soon) from Wallacia (Penrith area) NSW & will be at ULURU on 5th June & meet up with a brother of mine till the 23rd June at Darwin (they are doing a fly-drive..Alice to Darwin) & then we head for WA / Broome /Perth etc etc with no time table except to be back home by mid- September this year.
Maybe we will cross paths so don't forget to wave at every Bronze coloured Nissan Patrol Towing a big Roadstar Van.
Good Luck
Don & Eveline.
