Lap of Australia Itinerary

There’s no place quite like Australia, and we spent the last 7 odd years working towards doing a big lap of Australia, and have since taken off from Perth for at least a year on the road, and maybe more depending on how it goes.

In this post, I want to cover our itinerary, with links to the places we’ve been. I’ll try not to go into too much detail here, as its going to be long enough! We are currently on the road, and will update this every week or so to give you an idea of where we’ve been.
