G'Day to all, just back from a three month Aussie Adventure and what a time we had.Left Tassie on the Spirit Of Tasmania and headed straight up through the middle of Victoria and N.S.W to Menindee,followed the Darling river to Bourke,headed on up and across to Cairns.Up the coast and into Lakefield N.P and on up the Cape.Coming back down we travelled across the Gulf,calling into Lawn Hill NP(MAGNIFICENT) onto Kakadu and Darwin.Left Darwin and called into LitchfieldNP,drove across to Kunnunarra,down to Halls Creek,down the Tanami Track to Alice,East and West Macdonald Ranges,round the Merienee loop to Ayres Rock.From here we went down to Marla and down the Oodnadatta Track,through the Flinders Ranges to Broken Hill and back to Melbourne.Travelled just on 18000kms neither vehicle suffered any punctures or breakdowns(Toyotas of course) and one final word.ANY ONE THINKING OF DOING "THE BIG ONE" GO ON GET OUT THERE, ITS A BIG BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY.
