We (Justin and Bec) have three children. 5 year old Jack, 3 year old Billy and 2 year old daughter Charli. We are a young family travelling Australia. We packed up our home and sold up from Newcastle, NSW in December 2015 to live the dream!
Justin worked as a Heavy Duty Mechanic for 15 years, and Bec in nursing and currently studying.
Travelling Australia is something we have always wanted to do. We realised the importance of getting outdoors and spending quality time as a family and thought we’d do it all while exploring Australia. We wanted a change from the daily grind and give our children the opportunities and experiences that will last with them for a lifetime!
It’s a fantastic lifestyle and the adventures and experiences we have gained are far more valuable than money ever will be! Exploring our beautiful country has seen a huge change in our children. They thrive on the changing environments and we have watched their little personalities become strong, resilient and outgoing. Learning through nature and the life skills gained while on the road is a fantastic quality within our kids. Although our eldest is school age in 2018, we will be home schooling him, so stay tuned on updates about how we manage this!
After purchasing our Jurgens Narooma caravan and already having a Mazda BT-50, we hit the road heading north. With three kids on board aged 3.5, 2 and a 6 month old baby (crazy right?!) it was a huge adjustment, but so worth it!
We are passionate about family travel and being on the road gives us such enjoyment as well as challenges. We bring plenty of information on all things travel and caravanning. How to go about starting your own Aussie adventure and what to expect!
