Australia map

Australia, Down Under, Land of Oz…a few different names for our home country. We were born in different states in Australia, Scott in Queensland and myself in New South Wales. We met in Far North Queensland in Cairns and together lived in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Canberra; before we moved to Scotland in 2016. We are returning to Australia for a gap year in 2023-2024 to engage in every Aussie’s birth-right – driving the Big Lap around the country (including Tasmania). Our plan is to drive a 4WD (probably a Toyota ‘Troopy’) with a rooftop tent conversion, taking about 12 months to cover a distance of at least 15,000 kilometres / 9,200 miles.
