Our Lap of Oz

Welcome to our Lap Of Australia page. A place where we will share all things about our adventurous caravan travels.

“Living is a thing you do now or never” and we have made a conscious decision to embrace what matters to us most. We have decided to pack up our house, simplify our lives, escape the hustle and bustle of modern suburban life and hit the road to travel Australia in a Caravan! We chase the sun, swim in the ocean daily, be sandy and sun-kissed, enjoy campfires, go fishing and generally slow ourselves down to enjoy these simple things together.

As Ambassadors for Jayco Caravans we are thrilled to be travelling in style in a 22ft Starcraft Caravan – and just LOVE our new home on wheels – Click here for our caravan tour video.

We are also excited to have Kathmandu, BCF, Oztent and Redarc on board to join our adventures as well as being ambasadors for Caravanning with Kids  and Australia’s leading caravan and marine equipment company – CAMEC.

With our love for the outdoors, especially the ocean, we are also excited to be partners with Take 3 (#take3forthesea) for this epic lap of Oz. Take 3 is a non for profit organisation who are on a mission to reduce plastic pollution in Australia and around the globe. We plan to help spread their simple message – Whenever you’re at a beach, waterway or anywhere in the great outdoors, simply take 3 pieces of rubbish away with you and you’ve made a difference. We think this is such a simple message and as a family something we can all take part in as we travel around and explore this amazing country! You can read more about Take3 here.

We’d love you to follow our adventures via our blog, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Youtube channels and don’t forget to subscribe to our eNewsletter here.

Please say hi if you see us on the road and get in touch if you have any questions about travelling with your little ones or if you want to share some must see spots for us to visit.
