Kimberley Adventure Week Eight

We started with a boring two-day run along the bitumen from Kununurra to Broome. Monday night we free-camped at the Ngumpan cliffs lookout; we arrived about 15 minutes ahead of the afternoon rush to find the wobblies had already taken over the area next to the toilets and picnic table shelters so we set up…

Kimberley Adventure-Week Six

Mornington Wilderness Sanctuary is a 90km drive from the Gibb into quite different country from what we have been used to so far. Wide ranging savannah with distant ranges and plateau’s, criss-crossed by lots of wide, stony creeks. The campsites are unpowered and no generators are allowed. So we had to rely on the solar…

A Kimberley and outback Adventure-Week One

We left Adelaide Saturday afternoon fully loaded and driving into an awfully strong head & cross wind that destroyed our fuel consumption and made for a noisy drive to Port Augusta. Set up in gale force winds but thankfully they dropped in the evening. Steve & Kathy arrived and found their camper fridge was on…

Keeping fit and healthy whilst travelling remotely for extended periods is part of enjoying seeing and exploring new things.

Discovery 4 – one year on

As they say we live in interesting times. Inside one year we have travelled over 20,000km in the D4 and learnt a great deal about its capabilities on and off road over that time. We have not made any major modifications to the car which is exactly as we expected. It is good enough on…

Preparing your camper Trailer and 4WD

The tow vehicle first One thing we know from experience is most travellers have no real idea of how heavy their 4WD is when loaded with all the food, water, recovery gear, spares and extra fuel, as well as the kitchen sink for some. Prior preparation and planning makes for a better trip. We are…
