G'day Troy, My wife and my 2 kids left on the big trip in January. Went down around Vic from Sydney. We were going to do Tassie first but decided to hug the coast to Warnambool before turning north. We are now in Broken Hill.

Be heading further north in a few days to follow the sun.

Roughly from here, Sunnycoast for easter, Whitsundays in mid May. back out to Winton end May then North to Lorn Hill to meet some friends mid June before the Cape in July.

After that, West and down the west coast..

Maybe we'll meet up somewhere.

Cheers
Joff

Hi Troy,
We went around Oz and started by heading north from Brisbane. We left in March 2000 and had good weather all the time. We are soon to leave for five years on the road, 4 weeks to go!!!! and counting, our first destination is Cooktown for the re-enactment weekend in June, it is a great weekend and we are looking forward to it. You will have a ball

Hi Troy,
Doesn't really matter which way you go just allow plenty of time. we are just over 2 yrs into our trip and still haven't seen it all(never will). We are heading north to cape york now. Try not to plan to far ahead cause you will get to one place and it will be better than you thought and want to stay longer.
The best thing I like about being on the road is the closeness of our family now. Who needs all the gadgets. Hope it goes well for you and have fun.

Josh

G'day Troy,

All the best in your travels and I'm green with envy, like others here I'm a year or 2 behind you and have been studying the form. The winter months will see me heading north, there is no doubt about that and winter may well start around the beginning of April for me.

I had been thinking about heading south for summer but the heat wave conditions there this summer have forced me to reconsider and coastal will be the go.

There are lots of questions now and probably more along the way so drop in any time because the question your asking is probably on several other minds as well.

Not sure if my bride would consider Tassie in April though, she's adament that that is a strictly summer destination.

Kind regards
