The Ambassador Van has been on the road for nearly two years now. It's done more than a few laps of Oz, survived a crash by the Lost Girls, rested more than 35 Ambassador heads on it's pillows, ferried more cases of beer than we care to know, and created enough travel memories to produce more than 500 stories, 5000 photos and 50 videos!

Poor old Ambassador Van needs a well deserved rest, so he will be heading for retirement in Cairns to take up lawn bowls and bingo (he's got his Hawaiian shirts and safari shorts picked out!).

Follow John & Dierdra's adventure as they escort the van home.

One van retires... another van is re-born!

But that's not the end my adventurous hunters of bounty! We're planning a bigger, better Ambassador program for next year - a new van, a new plan....so Check it out here! There is a chance to win $10,000!.

Bye-Bye Ambassador Van......

Sorry to see the van disappear into the sunset, but we'll be all left with great memories...
I will never forget the stars. They were so brilliant, night after night. Helped me feel connected to our past.
Thanks for everything.

Ah, we are back on the road, but obviously this time without our favourite van... but it has been close to our thoughts along the way... may the van live out it's days in joyful peace!
