How to keep your camper trailer in tip-top condition

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt from our extensive travel is not to dismiss any small problems that arise with our camper trailer. Having travelled all around Australia, we are drawn to some of the more remote regions year after year. Visiting places such as WA’s Kimberley and west coast, and other areas like the […]

How to keep the insects away at your campsite

How to keep the insects away at your campsite

We’d all like to have an insect free campsite especially when we know there’s lots of nasties that bite!  While there’s a bundle of commercial products available to manage insects, try some of our tips to help keep those nasties at bay.

DRIFTA Canvas Bags

DRIFTA Canvas Bags

Over the many years we’ve been travelling, finding the right packing solution for all our gear has been a challenge.

Uniflame Camping Table

Uniflame Camping Table

If there was one camping accessory that we’ve tried a number of over the years, tables would be high up on the list. You name it, we’ve tried it…plastic and aluminium, and we even tried timber in those early days of travelling. After being introduced to the Uniflame Campfire table, we were eager to try […]

Our Setup

Our Setup

At the time of our big lap, both of us had driven Mitsubishi vehicles for so long, it was only natural that we took a Pajero for the trip.  The Pajero was fitted with a few accessories to help with towing and the long distances – we added a long range fuel tank, the suspension was upgraded, […]
