So what is all about? Well... hopefully, by the time we are done, it will be a comprehensive journal about a family of 5 who have travelled around Australia to see the sights and also do some volunteer work around the country! In Mid 2010 we started thinking about what it would take to fulfil a life-long dream... We wanted to bundle up our 3 kids, pack-up the house, jump in the car and hit the road - probably for about 12 months. It sounds so simple ... At the start of January 2013, after almost 15 months on the road; we finally completed Our Big Aussie Road Trip. We hope that you enjoyed following our adventures, trials and tribulations as much as we enjoyed having them!

The Masons at Mason's Bay!

After leaving Cape Le Grand, we spent one night in Esperance to give us all a nice hot shower, and also do a big food shop to get us the next stretch of our journey. While we were back in Esperance, we walked out onto the Jetty which we hadn’t done the previous times we were there.  We saw a sealion in the water waiting for easy food from passing fishermen!

We spent the next 2 nights camped at ‘Mason’s Bay’ – we just couldn’t go past this place without stopping!!  It was a bit 'off the beaten track’ and there was some very corrugated dirt roads to get there, but it was definitely worth the effort.  We got a beautiful spot right by the water.  It was Tuesday so we spent time in the morning doing schoolwork and in the afternoon we went for a long walk on the beach to see what we could find.  After a lovely 2 hour walk we were all pretty tired but we’d found some really great places along the way – including a beach where we went beachcombing and collected lots of nice and interesting shells.

That afternoon, we got out all the art equipment and did some artwork for a school competition.
