We’re off on another trip, heading west – chasing big sky country and red dirt. Our first stop was catching up with Trinity’s friend Julie, on her 70,000 acre property south of Mitchell, QLD. Her family run 3,500 merino sheep and 150 head of cattle on mulga country. Trinity and Julie have been best mates… Read More Life among the Mulga
The 2018 Ultimate Campers Queensland Muster was one of those events that we could have quite easily filed in the “too hard” basket. The timing was terrible! We could have easily let my study get in the way. I (Trinity) was finishing final assignments for my Masters degree until late Friday night. Besides, we’d only… Read More Ultimate Campers 2018 QLD Muster: Our Recap
It’s no secret that we love travelling with our own dog, Mister Dog (fondly known as plain old Dog to his mates). We take him on most of our camping trips, to cafes on lazy weekends at home, and even opt to stay at dog-friendly Airbnb’s when we’re looking for a little more luxury when… Read More Cruising with Canines: Meet Sparkys on the Loose
In desperate need of a break after an emotionally draining few weeks, we packed our bags and headed off to the Sunshine Coast for the Australia Day weekend. We were in search of a dog beach, op shops (we’re avid bargain hunters), good food, and some much needed R&R. Well, Sunny Coast, you certainly did… Read More Is this the Sunshine Coast’s best Dog Beach?

Keen to stay in a cabin rather than the tent to avoid the sweltering summer heat, their cute Dingo Cottage looked like just the place we… Read More Wave Hill Station Farm Stay
The final leg of our recent trip was through Outback New South Wales. After driving across the Simpson Desert, exploring the Oodnadatta Track, and taking a look around Innamincka, we welcomed a change of pace. For years I’d been fascinated from afar by towns such as Broken Hill and Bourke and was keen to see… Read More Outback New South Wales
After crossing the Simpson Desert off our bucket list, we were geared up and ready for the next part of our adventure – the Oodnadatta Track. The Oodnadatta Track is 620km running from Marla to Marree in South Australia. We picked up the track south of Dalhousie Springs, roughly 15km north of Oodnadatta, at the… Read More Driving the Oodnadatta Track
What would you do if you had a break-down in the bush? A car fire in the desert? Or a medical emergency hours away from the nearest hospital? As remote travellers, we need to be mindful of the risks. Adequate preparation is key. Emergency communications One of the first things that should cross your mind… Read More Emergency Communications: Are You Prepared?
