About Us 

fulltime travel around australia with laz and sue

Larry and myself Suzie have always had a passion for adventure. We decided in 2012 to save for a caravan and travel around Australia full time. We also decided the best way to do this was to move to and work on Hayman Island, in the Whitsundays, Queensland, Australia.

In July 2016 we bought a Jayco Starcraft and from there on,  the adventure began..............

    What an absolutely fabulous group and site, and by far the best, most informative,well written, great photos and videos. Well done both of you for a well managed and professional site. we are in a number of groups, but Iove this one !! We are very new to all of this after just retiring, and have an Avan Ovation Motorhome, so its just 2 wheel drive touring for us, with a mixture of Free Camping, National Parks and Caravan Parks etc. Next week we will be driving from our home in Ballina NSW [where we retired to after 30 years in Sydney] to hopefully Margaret River/Perth area. We plan on stopping in the Flinders ranges, Clare/Barossa, Fleureau Peninsular, Coccklebiddy to see the Bird Sanctuary etc etc, and travel back via Melbourne perhaps, before the end of October, as we are advised the Nullabour Plain heats up a bit after that … so its a 6 month trip. We are so pleases to find such a great site, so keep up the great work. We will try and add some photos and videos, but don’t have a Drone for aerial footage [our son has in his video production business though] …. Marie & Colin ….

      Hi Colin and Marie, thanks for the comment. It’s certainly a great lifestyle with plenty of great places to see even in a 2wd and loads of awesome people you meet along the way. We had to bypass Margaret River area due to time commitments in Mandurah region but hope to make it back that way during the next lap. Yes you’re right the Nullarbor can get very hot at certain times of the year. Make sure you stop off at the lookout next to the WA/SA border on the bight. fantastic free camp there overlooking the ocean
      Happy and safe travels

    Mainly from what I can see cos of council self containment policy… Not my fault…!!!
    Just got here, going to have a look around, like what I see , keep up the good work…!!!
    Course the dunny info is what I first looked up, learnt a bit too I might add…

        Well newbies to the “Hit the road Jack” like me need all the tricks we can get, no better way to learn than from other like minded folk…!!!
        Did a big caravan trip when I wore a younger mans clothes and could do all the hitching,reversing etc with one finger,alas those days have gone so the next best thing,a motorhome. Both are a compromise in some way (Been done to death that argument) and this is the path SWMBO and I chose.
        1990 was the last time we crossed the Nullabor with the caravan and two rug rats, the new long road was just finished 😉 Was sooo smooth, wonder what it’s like now…???
        We zoomed through as most did back then, no way this time, there were no whale platforms to watch from back then ,prolly were still killing them…???
        Thanks for the welcome, great work…!!!

    Hi What a great site, we are just preparing for our journey, long way to go – hopefully on the road in 2019. I was just wondering how you added the google map with destinations. are you able to show us not so computer literate people how to mark our journeys and details. We will be travelling with 3 dogs so will be so great to keep details easily of great rest stops and places we love. I will continue to follow your journey to learn for our journey. May we meet up on the road one day. Thank you for this great blog and site. happy travels

      Hi Coral

      The google maps is done via a plugin for WordPress (plugin is called google maps easy). WordPress is a website platform that you design and make websites with. If your not making a website then something like Wikicamps will also give you option to add a track and points on a map as you travel. You can then share that with friends.
      Hope that helps
      Happy travels

    So your device is not suitable for a Motorhome?

      • LazLaz
      • August 5, 2018

      If your referring to the WITI device from Leisure Technologies then your better off with a car alarm or immobiliser for your motorhome as the functions of the WITI is more suited to trailers and caravans with electric brakes.

    Hi Sue & Laz, so excited to find your site as there’s so much great information. I was really interested in your Nullarbor camp sites item as it’s one of my husband and my dream trips, it’s great to see someone say how good it is and not Nullarboring as we often hear. Looking forward to whatever ever you post in the future. Cheers Phil & The Dragon (Glenda) ?

      Hi Glenda AKA the lovely Dragon 😉 and Phil,
      If The Nullarbor is your dream trip you will love it. As you have seen in our post, it has so many great free camps. We loved the quietness and scenery.
      Thanks so much for your comment and I hope you find more information that might help with your travels.
      Happy camping 😀
