Aussie Life to the Max

Home again

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 5 Jul 2013 | Views [191]

Home again after 71 days and 22,665km's by motorcycle. What a great experience better even than I imagined. It is nice to be home though and sleep under a roof in my own bed, but I will miss the roar of the engine and the awesome night sky till next ... Read more >


Uluru and the Centre

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 27 Jun 2013 | Views [190]

We've just landed in Townsville, it's been a demanding trip with lots of ground to cover. We got down to Uluru, Kata T'juta and King's canyon. Again the weather and desert were atypical. It was raining and cold at Uluru, but we were treated to the spectical ... Read more >


Alice Springs and the MacDonnell Ranges

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 18 Jun 2013 | Views [230]

We've been in Alice a few days now and will try and get up to date. We got to the centre on Friday and went as far as the Ross homestead in the East Macdonnells. If you get a chance to get down this way take the opportunity to drop in there. The historic ... Read more >

The North West, Karijini to Broome

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 28 May 2013 | Views [197]

Awesome few days in Karijini, the gorges were amazing at least the ones we could get to on road bikes. At least I'm getting regular exercise on the walking tracks. We are currently sitting under a poinsiana tree in Broome having a cool drink, weather ... Read more >


Kalbarri

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 20 May 2013 | Views [164]

The stop in Kalbarri has been a great experience. Like the Pinncles we were told it was a good place to visit , but had no idea what it would be like. The coastal cliffs were imressive but the gorge in the national park was truly spectacular. Heading ... Read more >


West Coast, Augusta to Cervantes

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 18 May 2013 | Views [228]

Esperance, Albany and the South Coast

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 13 May 2013 | Views [200]

We hit some bad weather in WA, I think WA must mean Wet Australia. After the storm in Norseman we headed south to Esperance. Esperance must be one of the prettiest cities in Australia, white sand, secluded bays and crystal clear water. We stayed over ... Read more >

Adelaide and Fleuriou

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 2 May 2013 | Views [238]

Had a run down to Victor Harbour, SA has so many excellent roads and marvelous scenery but a cold wind out of the south. Ran the Chain of Ponds road on the way back, truly motorcycle heaven in the Adelaide hills. If it wasn't so darn cold here I ... Read more >
