It was time for us to plan another road trip, and because we live up north, what better opportunity for us to explore a bit of Outback Queensland than right now.
So where did we start?
Like most of our planning to travel, we started with Google Maps looking at where we live and what would be our ideal trip away to see things we haven’t seen.
Out west looked good, rather than heading too far up into North Queensland yet.
So here I’ll give you a run down on where we are travelling and what we are going to be doing in each place as we go west through Outback Queensland.
You can click on the highlighted links and they will take you to my other pages where I have written about that place or that experience.
My aim is to document the trip so you and your family can use the information if you want to.
It’ll make it a easier for you to plan your holiday travel!
You might not stay in a camper trailer like us and choose to stay in Hotels and Motor Inns.
But either way you just have to maximise the time in each place to create your memories.
I’m sure we will probably be fitting in a bit more than we have planned.
We will see how we go!
