    Hi all
    I am excited to be a part of this site. I will be purchasing a 2009 Silverado 4x4 Duarmax / Alison later this year. My plan is to travel around Australia in my offroad caravan for the next 7 years or more. I will be acompanied by my patner of 8 years and our little dog. We live on the South Coast of NSW in a beach side village called Culburra Beach.

    My experience of driving has been gained over 30 years driving interstate tourist coaches and semi-trucks and have seen most of my country through the windscreen but now I plan to take it easy and stop in at all the places I just passed by. No more than 4 or 5 hours a day at the most. I am a keen photographer and plan to print, frame amd sell my work at various markets and car boot sales around Australia.

    So thats a little about me. I can't wait for the day we leave.
    Hope to keep you updated on my travels and I will produce a monthly newsletter emailed out to those that are interested. Drop me a line if ypou would like to added to the email list.

    Cheers for now.
    Jack & Linda

    Welcome to the site! I spent a month in Australia some years ago in Portland, Victoria. My wife's parents were living there at the time so I experienced driving on the opposite side of the road. We toured different areas like The Great Ocean Road and the beautiful coastline.
