We are a family of four making the most of our “life outside work (and school)” by travelling and exploring Australia every chance we get!

We don’t travel full-time, we both have jobs and the kids go to school BUT we still see plenty of what this amazing country has to offer…. we just do it in smaller trips!

We had plans to travel full time but when things aligned, and we could see that our dreams could turn into reality, we decided we didn’t want to give it all we have for a 12 month trip. 

We love the life we have created at home, the kids are in a great school with great friends and we really enjoy the excitement of planning trips and having adventures to look forward to each school holidays, not to mention our weekends away exploring close to home!

So here it is… our “life outside work”

We want to share our trips and adventures with you! 

We want to inspire and encourage you to travel too!

We want to show you that you don’t have to give it all up and travel full to explore Australia.  You can still see so much and travel far when just taking shorter trips!

You can have the best of both worlds – a home life and a travelling life!!

“little by little, we travel far”


IT’S ALL ABOUT …. adding lines to the map!!

There’s so many lines on the map!!!  So many places to go, so much to see!!! We have a big Aussie map on our wall at home and we are colouring over the lines, one trip at a time!

We are a family of four.  We live in Medowie, NSW (Australia) and have done for the last 10 years.  Prior to having our beautiful children we followed the mining game around and lived in North West WA and Central QLD.


We are making amazing memories that will last a lifetime – we are living our best life!

    Hi there.
    Great site.Lots of great info and ideas!
    We’re off to Bruny later this year and were looking at Cloudy Corner Campground. A lot of the guides say 4WD access. We have an Xtrail AWD (w. lockable 4WD transmission). We were just wondering if the track to cloudy corner would be too rough for that type of vehicle.

      Hi Andrew! Thank you 🙂 If you are not towing you should be fine. It was a couple of years ago when we were there but we didn’t let tyres down and pulled our 19ft van fine. It’s a great spot! Enjoy 😊
