Once you get yourself to Australia it's really not that expensive if you chose the camping option. I realise there are a few qualifiers in that opening sentence and I do need to use them because if you don't do it right Australia can cost you an arm and a leg and you could easily end up having quite a bland experience. Family vacation like the locals do, and camp at some of the most amazing family campsites which have more facilities than the average caribbean all inclusive resort.
Welcome to our Australia travel blog! We've put all our stuff in storage and are on the road traveling from Queensland, Australia south into New South Wales (NSW) then across to South Australia and on and on.
Check out our pictures and video from this trip with our little toddler, top camping spots, free activities to do and some of the top Australian travel spots.
To get to Penguin Island you can catch a horse drawn tram and see little tiny penguins in their natural environment.

Read all about Girraween National Park and our time there. Lots of trees, rocks and walks!
We managed to get away and are now officially without a permanent residence apart from our tent and trailer. We have been roughing it a little in National and state parks. All is going well and only wondering why we did not do this sooner as we settle in to a nomadic routine. I also found internet and enjoy doing our posts from Libraries which will allow us to upload short videos and images.
With only 10 days remaining to clean up our rental, the pressure is on. We also need to get our camping set up ready and record a little of our progress. Exciting to think that within a few weeks we will have the storage shed filled and the road ahead.
