We are a family of 4 (Husband, wife and 2 boys 5 and 3) who have been travelling Oz for the past 2 yrs. We are on our way back to WA and plan to set off around March again. We like to work on our way and have found it restricting travelling alone. So far we have worked in one spot 3-4 months at a time.

We are after a family that would also be interested in a short trip 2-4 months, starting in WA, could join us in SA though, and work mainly the harvest trail around the south east of SA, VIC, north of NSW coastal and QLD coast. Our idea being that 3 could work and 1 could watch the children, or 2 and 1 at home if there are any single parents interested. We are restricted with our van to main roads and not far off the beaten track, although we do carry our tent etc for camping.

We dont really have a timeline are our motto is not to make plans so nothing can go wrong. So if the like the idea of this please reply!

no, the group is an open group. The link above may not work as exploroz may restrict external links to websites (im not sure about that tho).

It is a great group of families, we really enjoy talking to them. There is one familiy on there who has a bus and 9 kids and have been living on the road for years. They have some great stories to tell and plenty of tips to share aswell. I know there are families looking to connect with other families too.

try searching for "Families on the road-Travelling Australia" in facebook under Groups.
If not try searching for Gone Bush in facebook, he admins the group!

Hope that helps.

Doey, it works fine if you place "http://" before your web address when inserting a web link ;)
