Things we’ve learned while camping & travelling

– It’s inevitable that bugs, dirt and sand will become like seasoning to your meals! Yes, there are many times a bug has flown into dinner and Shelly has either picked it out or just stirred it into the meal!

– Baby Wipes are your best friend, we have them everywhere! They are our daily shower, they clean our hands, they wipe down tables and clean the benchtop, and they’ve even been used to wash cutlery and plates when we haven’t had water!

– Your feet will always be dirty, you just live with it!

– White clothing should never be taken camping!

– Swimming is perfectly acceptable to class as a ‘shower’.

– We can go days without a shower and don’t even miss it …… until you eventually have a nice hot shower and you realise what you were missing!

– If you travel the outback, be prepared to throw out your clothing upon return, as everything will end up a slightly pink/brown colour as it’s tinged with red dirt.

– There is this small window of the day where you are completely bug free – that changeover period between where the flies go to bed and the mozzies wake up. It’s that miniscule window of time, of total bliss, where there are absolutely no bugs around at all!

– Once you’ve done one outback trip your 4WD will forever bleed red dirt. No matter how many times you wash it or think it’s clean, it will never ever be that case again! The only way to rectify this is to sell it and buy a new one!

– Always replace a beer when you take one out of the fridge, one for one every time! No-one wants to find no cold beers in the fridge!

– Hold back on the packing as you will always take more food and clothes than you really need.

– We love Zip lock bags! OK well Shelly does, but she’s converted George too!

– Zooper Doopers are not just for kids! Nothing better on a hot day than taking a nice cold ice block out of the freezer.

– Corn chips are a great firelighter.

– Lock up your food and garbage, hungry animals are hiding everywhere! Our very first visit to Fraser Island a dingo took George’s roll within about 15 min of us arriving at camp, lesson learnt! ….. OK maybe we did have another small incident with a cow at Mt Elizabeth Station in WA, but we won’t go into that!

– It’s perfectly acceptable to wander around a campsite, chatting to others, in your PJ’s.

– If you just expect that outback toilets will contain a frog or a snake, you won’t get such a surprise when you lift the lid!

– Always have a wet weather bag handy, nothing worse than having to throw wet or muddy clothes or snatch straps in the car.

– Some of the best adventures are the unplanned ones. Take that unmarked track to the river, take that detour, talk to the locals and take their advice.

– Sing and sing loudly and don’t worry who’s watching! It makes everyone happy (well maybe not those around you, but the one singing!!) Shelly is known to give many car and campsite ‘concerts’.

– Sometimes cheese and crackers and chips is a perfectly acceptable dinner.

– Always have a snack box in the car which is handy at all times, saves having to actually stop and rummage through food boxes all the time. Particularly if you have a Shelly who is always hungry!

– If you leave home and look at a tyre and say, ‘i really should change that before we leave’ ….. you probably should, otherwise you’ll be sitting on the side of a track doing it!

– It doesn’t matter how prepared you think you are, you will always forget something! Thank god for friendly camping neighbours who are always happy to help out!

– When free camping with no-one around, it’s amazing how trees, wind, rain, mice, snakes etc can all sound like a mass murderer coming to kidnap and kill you!

– Wild animals are cheeky and brazen and will take any opportunity to get to your food (and they don’t care how much mess or destruction they leave behind!). We’ve seen dingos actually walk into someones caravan, wild horses tear up a campsite and a snake chase a mouse into someones car! And don’t forget the cows, birds, wild dogs & even emu’s and kangaroos, all will take any opportunity. It’s hard sometimes, but never ever feed them, no matter how hungry or skinny they look.

– Always take ear plugs with you if you want a good night sleep, it’s amazing the many noises you may need to block out from time to time!

– No matter how much open space there is, someone will always set up camp right next to you!

– Aloe Vera, Tea Tree oil and Manuka oil are a must as they will treat so many issues.

– If you ‘wonder’ whether you should visit a place or do an activity, just do it! You’ll regret it later (we totally regret not doing the helicopter flight over the Bungle Bungles).

Our World Record Attempt

Back in 2019 we attended our first Big Red Bash and we loved it so much we got tickets for the next year. Unfortunately COVID resulted in last years concert being cancelled, but all tickets were carried over to 2021.

For those that aren’t aware, the Big Red Bash is a 3 day concert with camping onsite, held at the base of Big Red in the Simpson Desert, just out from Birdsville, QLD. It’s the world’s most remote music festival.

But it’s more than just a music festival, it’s a means to bring much needed spending to outback Queensland communities and also helps to raise money for charities. Each year, the Big Red Bash raises over $75,000 for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).

One of the ways they raise money for the RFDS is via the ‘Nutbush World Record Challenge’. And guess what …….

THIS YEAR OFF THE TRACK 4×4 ARE JOINING THE WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT!

But that’s not all, this year we are also trying to beat the record for the ‘Largest Twist Dance’ as well!

In 2019, 2,330 Big Red Bashers smashed the World Record for the most people dancing the Nutbush! The current record for the Worlds Largest Twist Dance is 3,040 in the USA.

All records are adjudicated by The Australian Book of Records and every cent of our registration fee, plus all your generous donations, go to the Royal Flying Doctor’s Service to support their amazing work in the outback, ensuring everyone has access to medical aid, emergency services and other vital health care support.

Our Off The Track 4×4 team is made up of us, George & Shelly, and our mate Stewy.

Got some spare cash, want to donate to a good cause and support our team? Whether it’s $2 or $200, it all helps.

The world record attempts will take place at 9.00am, Thursday 8th July at the Big Red Bash in the concert area.

LAST POST CEREMONY

Recently we visited the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, which we both thoroughly enjoyed, it had been many years since our last visit so we were keen to get back there, there is so much history, you could literally spend a whole day walking around and reading everything. But this visit was different to previous ones as we experienced something we had never experienced before, we went to the Last Post Ceremony.

Neither of us knew about this until a guide at the information centre mentioned it to us, but we were definitely interested so we booked our tickets. The Last Post Ceremony is held daily in the Commemorative Courtyard at 4.45pm. You can be involved in this moving ceremony, where every night they share the story behind one of the names on the Roll of Honour.

We expected this to be a moving and emotional experience, but the tears started much earlier than expected, in fact before the ceremony even started! Whilst we were waiting for the ceremony to start we were speaking with one of the staff members and she told us a little about the story we were going to hear. She said that it was a special one as the family, including the deceased’s only child, was in attendance and would be watching and laying wreaths. The deceased’s 101 year old widow was also going to be watching the live stream online from home.

The ceremony started with the national anthem and was followed by a lament on the bagpipes whilst family and visitors laid wreaths. Next we were told the story of Flight Sergeant John McAulay Morrison, born in 1918 in Lismore, NSW. John applied to join the Royal Australian Airforce in April 1940 at the age of 22. He also had 5 brothers and all served during the second World War. In May 1940 John married and later welcomed a daughter. John was called up and enlisted in the air force in September 1940 as a pilot. Unfortunately, like so many others, Flight Sergeant John McAulay Morrison never made it home to his family and on 28 June 1942, at the age of 24, he was killed when the Kittyhawk he was flying crashed. His remains are buried in Grafton Cemetery.

Lastly, the ceremony ended with a reading of the Ode by Defence Force personnel and the sounding of The Last Post.

This was a great experience and definitely one to do on your next trip to Canberra. It’s emotional and interesting and a great way to pay your respects to those who gave their all for us to live the life we do today.

To attend this ceremony you must have a ticket which you can arrange via their website, but there is no cost involved. The tickets allow you entry from 4.20pm and you can walk around the Commemorative Courtyard, the Pool of Reflection, the Roll of Honour halls and the Tomb of the Unknown Australian Soldier (also amazing and something which we had never seen before). The service is streamed live every night on YouTube and Facebook and into RSL clubs.

A Country Practice … a trip down memory lane

Growing up I remember sitting down every week and watching A Country Practice, it was certainly a very popular show back in it’s day and reruns now are proving popular with everyone reminiscing and remembering their younger years. A Country Practice ran from 1981 to 1993 and was based around a hospital in a rural country town called Wandin Valley, following the lives and stories of the patients, the residents of the town and their ups and downs as they went about their daily lives. It was just a down to earth wholesome show, but one which did delve into some of the more serious issues of life from time to time. Everyone had their favourite character, who was yours? Was it the fun and quirky Molly, Sergeant Frank Gilroy, the town busy body Esme Watson, larrikins Bob & Cookie or was it Dr Elliott or Matron Sloan? There are far too many to choose from!

Now for those that don’t know, most of the outdoor scenes were filmed in and around Windsor, Pitt Town and Ebenezer in western Sydney, NSW. We recently decided to go on a trip out that way to visit some of the places that featured in the show. If you google enough you’ll find information and addresses on these locations, but we have provided information below that we found. Please do keep in mind that most of these places are private residences so remember to respect the owners privacy and do not attempt to enter their property.

First up and probably the most recognisable house from the show was the house that Frank and Shirley Gilroy lived in, as this was also the house that appeared in the opening credits.  

LOCATED:  Corner of Buckingham Street and Chatham Street, Pitt Town (opposite Pitt Town Primary School). (Private residence)


Next up is the Wandin Valley Church which featured in many weddings and funerals. This beautiful old church was actually Scot’s Church in Pitt Town, built in 1862.

LOCATED:  99 Bathurst Street, Pitt Town (corner of Buckingham Street)


Another unforgetable property was the Wandin Valley Police Station where Sergeant Frank Gilroy was based.

LOCATED:  17 Johnston Street, Pitt Town (Private residence)


The location of Muldoon’s Store has now been converted into a service station.

LOCATED:  85 Bathurst Street, Pitt Town (on the corner of Church Street)


The Wandin Valley Store is a pub, the Bird in Hand Inn in Pitt Town. 

LOCATED:  81 Bathurst Street, Pitt Town (intersection of Eldon Street)


The Wandin Valley School was Pitt Town Public. 

LOCATED:  17 Buckingham Street, Pitt Town


The Country Practice clinic

LOCATED:  Corner of Arndell Street & North Street/Court Street, Windsor (Private residence)


The property used as the Wandin Valley Hospital is a beautiful historic private residence in Oakville called ‘Clare House’, which was built using convict brick in 1828.

LOCATED:  29 Clare Crescent, Oakville (Private residence)


The local high school featured in the show was Windsor High.

LOCATED:  Mulgrave Road (turn off Windsor Road), McGraths Hill


Now this is one that everyone will know, who can forget the night Molly died, most of Australia was in tears that night! The filing location of Molly’s farm is located in Maraylya.

LOCATED:  St John’s Road, Maraylya (on the right hand side of the road, just up from the intersection with Cattai Ridge Road)


Doctor Terence Elliot’s home after he moved from upstairs at the clinic is located in Ebenezer. We didn’t get any photos of this one as the large property and house is built back off the road and hard to see.

LOCATED:  695 Sackville Road, Ebenezer.  Camelot (private home).


Historic Ebenezer Church (which is Australia’s oldest church) was used in several weddings for the show.

LOCATED:  95 Coromandel Road, Ebenezer


I’m sure there are plenty that we’ve missed as numerous buildings and houses in the area were used in the show, do you know any others?

Just a reminder though, please do keep in mind that most of these places are private residences. Respect the owners privacy when viewing and/or taking photos and do not attempt to enter their property without prior permission from the owner. The information given in this blog post is already freely available on the internet, but we have put it all together in one easy to find location.

Travel … we love it, but why do we do it?

Let’s be real here, who doesn’t love travelling?  You get to explore new and exciting places, you spend time with family and friends and you make memories that will last you a lifetime. Why wouldn’t you want to travel?

The thing is though, traditionally a lot of people have disregarded travel within Australia, in leiu of the ‘more exciting’ overseas travel. Australia is this huge vast land with some of the most spectacular scenery and many Australian’s never even get close to seeing it all. We all travel overseas to Europe, Bali, Thailand …. but we forget about this marvelous place that is right here in our own backyard.

Camel riding at Uluru, NT

The realization of this came years ago when George met a traveler from overseas who was telling him about all the places he’d visited during his holiday to Australia ….. he asked “Have you climbed the Harbour Bridge”? … No, “Have you seen Uluru”? … No, “What about snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef”? … No. It was at the moment that George decided that it wasn’t right that foreigners have seen more of our country than he had.

Uluru, NT

Luckily we both have the same love of Australia and of camping so this was the perfect plan! Over the years we have tried to experience as much of our country as we can, making the most of every experience that is thrown our way.

We can now say that yes we have climbed the Harbour Bridge, we’ve watched the sunset at Uluru on top of a camel, we’ve snorkeled the reef, we’ve explored underground mines, flown over a pearl farm in a helicopter, watched the sunset over Cable Beach, seen the Staircase to the Moon in Broome, held a baby crocodile, played with a baby lion and Tasmanian Devils and traveled through every state and territory in Australia. We still have so much more to explore, but we are getting there bit by bit. You see, the thing we decided to do was to just get out there and do it. We didn’t want to wait, we didn’t want to lose our chance to see the country.

Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb

This all really hit home to us when Shelly’s mum passed away quite suddenly at the age of 71. It was then that we realized just how short life can be, you never know what lay around the corner so never ever put something off. We wanted to make the most of life and experience all the weird and wonderful things that come along with that, whether it’s standing on the tip of Australia, driving a racecar around a circuit, cuddling a Tasmanian Devil or even spending nearly $2,000 for a day trip to the Horizontal Falls, we want to do it all! There may never be an ideal time to travel, you may never have enough money, and you may never have enough time …. But if you leave it too long, you might lose that chance altogether.

We met back in 2003 and now 18 years later we have so many memories and experiences we have shared together. We both still work full time, we are paying off a mortgage, we have pets and families, is this the ideal time to be travelling? Maybe, maybe not? But we make it happen, we work hard to save money for our travel and we fit it in between work. We aim to take one extended trip of around 2 months every 3 years, with many, many smaller trips in between! We don’t have all the time in the world and we certainly aren’t rich, but we make it work for us.

We need other people to realise that you can do it, you don’t have to wait, you just need to find what works for you and your family. It’s great now that we are starting to see so many young families travelling and doing the lap, the life experiences those children are going to learn just can’t be taught anywhere else. We are both very passionate about travelling Australia and want nothing more than to share our adventures and inspire others to do so as well. And now with Covid and travel restrictions in place, maybe it’s the perfect time for you to get out there and explore what Australia has to offer as well?

For this reason we have our website, blog and various social media pages where we document our 4WD adventures and share our experiences with everyone. We all like to pry into other people’s lives don’t we, well here’s your chance! Hopefully we inspire others to also follow their dreams and get out there and explore our great land. There are so many new adventures waiting to unfold. Life is too short to live with regrets ….. So go on …. get out there!

Tailem Bend, South Australia

Tailem Bend is a small town located about an hour out of Adelaide, SA. This rural town is built on the banks of the Murray River and was once an important service centre for the South Australian Railways. It was proclaimed a town in 1887, not long after the railway line went through.

Nowadays though, Tailem Bend is more likely known as the home of Australia’s newest racetrack, ‘The Bend’. The Bend is Australia’s only track to comply with the latest FIA Grade 2 and FIM Category A standards, making it eligible to host international categories such as the World Endurance Championships, IndyCar and MotoGP. It’s also the second longest permanent circuit in the world, after the Nurburgring in Germany.

Construction started in 2016 and the first Supercar Championship race meeting at the track was held on 24–26 August 2018. The track and precinct is very impressive and it’s not even finished yet, plenty more plans in the works.

This was built on what was once Mallala Race Circuit, which for some time was also Mitsubishi’s testing facility. The track was purchased by the Peregrine Corporation, owned by the Shahin Family. This is the same family who is responsible for the OTR stores in SA (if you don’t know about this family and their story, look them up. It’s quite interesting to see where they have come from and what they’ve built). What they’ve done with the OTR stores in one thing, but this whole motorsport complex at The Bend is something else.

We will say that the one thing that we really loved about this whole story is that the Shahin family really do seem so down to earth and very involved in all aspects of their businesses. The way the staff at the hotel spoke of this family was great, you could tell they all appreciate them and have a genuine like for the family. We heard that they actually do spend a bit of time in the complex and meet and speak with the staff.

THE BEND MOTORSPORT PARK

Now we haven’t attended a race meet here or personally raced on the track, but we’ve both been to plenty of racetracks over the years (and George has raced on them) and this one stands out by far. Not only do you have the world class racing circuit, there is karting, drifting, rallycross, a 4WD adventure park, private villas, a Rydges Hotel and a Big 4 caravan park all onsite.

RYDGES PIT LANE HOTEL

You’ll find the hotel located within the main building of the pit lane complex. The hotel offers 100 guests rooms, some with private balconies and views over the racetrack and pit lane. Also the Apex Bar and Restaurant, Apex coffee lounge and obviously plenty of meeting rooms and event spaces.

The hotel has a very modern vibe and we really liked that. Our package deal came with a bottle of champagne on arrival, dinner and breakfast for 2. The food was great, we definitely couldn’t fault that! And the cocktails, yum – do yourself a favour and try a Lemon Meringue Martini! Lastly the staff were all great, ultra friendly and always happy to have a chat or a joke. We all know customer service is important, but when you have a stay like we did, it really makes you remember the place in a very positive light.

The thing that sets this hotel apart from others is the car museum in the foyer. As soon as you walk in the front doors you are greeted with millions and millions of dollars worth of rare, historical and unique Supercars and sports cars. Most are apparently part of the the owners own personal collection and some are still taken out on the race track from time to time. One of the brothers, Sam Shahin is actually quite an accomplished race car driver.

The World’s Biggest Rocking Horse

Anyone that knows us, knows that we love to visit all the ‘big things’ across Australia and have a whole page on our website dedicated to this! Well on a recent trip to Adelaide we called in to visit The Big Rocking Horse in Gumeracha (only about 40 minutes from Adelaide).

At 18.3 metres high and weighing 25 tonnes, not only is this Australia’s Biggest Rocking Horse, it is the biggest in the world and it’s in the Guinness Book of Records to prove it!

Although it’s free to visit and take photos, for $2 you can climb the rocking horse, which has stairs inside which lead to viewing platforms in the head, on the saddle and one on the rocker near the base. You’ll also receive a certificate of achievement for climbing!

Toy Factory

Also in the complex there is a toy factory which sells some really great wooden toys which are made on site. You don’t see this type of old school workmanship too often these days. As well as the wooden toys there are plenty of other gifts and souvenirs and a range of lollies and chocolates.

The Shop is open 7 days a week (except Christmas Day) from 9am – 5pm

Wildlife Park

We can’t forget the Wildlife Park! For $2 entry per person (and an extra $2 if you want a bag of food) who could say no ….. well George could have, but Shelly wanted to go play with the animals!! Although it’s set on 7 acres, the wildlife park itself isn’t anything too exciting, but it was something to do and gave as a few laughs, and for $2 why not!

There was a range of animals including Alpacas, Sheep, Goats Kangaroos, Emus, Ducks, Cockatoos.

The Wildlife Park is open 7 days a week (except Christmas Day) from 9am – 4.30pm

CAFE

Lastly there is a cafe on site selling a wide range of food at reasonable prices. We grabbed a salad wrap and plate of chips and both were huge!

The Cafe is open 7 days a week (except Christmas Day) from 10am – 3pm

Where to find The Big Rocking Horse – 452 Torrens Valley Road, Gumeracha, South Australia.

A visit to Hahndorf, SA

Recently we visited the village of Hahndorf which is found about 1/2 hour from Adelaide.

Originally settled in 1839 by Prussian Lutherans, Hahndorf is now Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement.

Its German heritage is definitely still evident as you wander the Main Street which is filled with German pubs, cafes, restaurants, bakeries, chocolate and traditional sweets, wooden folk art, leather wears and cuckoo clocks!

Must say that wandering down the tree lined street was very pretty with all the autumn foliage starting to appear on the trees. This quaint little village is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Oh and the Lemon Meringue fudge … omg 🤤

ᑭᖇᗩᗪO ᑌᑭᗪᗩTE – It’s home!

Wow, what a journey that was! Like one of our mates said ‘there’s never been a more followed engine rebuild’

For those that are new to following us, here’s a quick run down of what happened …… we were holidaying in South Australia over Christmas and unfortunately we didn’t quite make it home! Our Prado broke down on 28th December 2020 (cracked a piston) and we were picked up and towed (including our camper trailer) to RH Automotive in Whyalla. These guys were great and went above and beyond to help us in so many ways. Unfortunately due to COVID and being Christmas/New Year, many places were closed and it was hard to work out what to do. Did we have it all towed back to Sydney (quotes were well in excess of $10K), did we get a new engine, a reconditioned engine (or recon ours) or did we sell and restart all over again? We did the sums and went with the most cost effective option for us. Luckily we have our NRMA Premium Roadside service which assisted us in this whole process and also contributed $3,000 towards towing, accommodation etc.

When we first put the post out there on Facebook about what had happened, so many of you (many we don’t even know) contacted us with information, offers of help etc. One in particular was our mate The Duck who rang George first thing the next morning and gave us a number of his good mate who owns a workshop in Adelaide, he couldn’t recommend him highly enough and said he’d already spoken to him and he was awaiting our call. Obviously it was something we hadn’t considered, having the car repaired in a different state and with people we knew nothing about. But after numerous phone calls and discussions we decided that it was our best option (and most cost effective). So on 4th January 2021 the Prado was towed to and dropped off at Auto Masters Salisbury. These guys also securely stored our camper trailer for us (at no cost) for the duration so that was a huge help.

Throughout this whole process, Tony kept us up to date and was always available whenever George called and texted with a query. It was a comfort to have that contact, considering we couldn’t just ‘pop in’ to check up on anything! It was also great when one of our followers spotted the Prado in the workshop (and later driving on the road) and sent us photos both times! It appears we have little spies everywhere!

Anyway, finally after a long 3 month wait, on Friday 9th April 2021 we flew to Adelaide to pick up the Prado (and it’s brand new engine!) and our camper trailer. Huge thanks to Tony and Dave and all the team at Auto Masters who were involved in the whole process, we couldn’t be happier to have our Prado safely home!! 1,400km in 2 days and we are home and the Prado did great. As we didn’t want to do Adelaide to Sydney straight up on a brand new engine, the mechanics had driven it around prior to us picking it up and put about 600km on the clock and checked it over.

So far, the engine sounds a lot quieter than the old one, feels smoother and has more power and we are still wearing it in, so all looking great so far.

So what does just over $21,000 give you? ….. apart from a very sad looking bank balance!!

  • Brand new genuine Toyota long motor
  • Brand new genuine Injectors
  • Brand new genuine Turbo
  • Brand new genuine Map sensor and filter
  • Brand new pump
  • Plus other things which were required to be replaced such as oils, filters, belts etc

Yes it’s expensive, but believe me, it was our best option and it gives us back our freedom and ability to get out there and travel and do what we love to do so that is priceless.

This was quite the experience and one we certainly don’t want to go through again! But throughout this whole process we were constantly surprised by how kind and genuine people can be … from being lent a car to drive around in for free in Whyalla, to being offered free accommodation (which we turned down), the hotel discounting our nightly rate, family and friends offering to drive to SA to pick us up, strangers contacting us with advice and their experiences with cracked pistons. We even went to look at buying a second hand car to drive home in and the car salesman called a friend who owned a trucking company to see if they could ship the Prado back home! It was all very surreal, but was nice to feel like we weren’t alone in such a stressful time.

Thanks again to The Duck, mate if it wasn’t for you pointing us in the right direction, giving us the confidence we’d made the right choice and constantly checking up with us, who knows what may have happened.

And of course to Auto Masters Salisbury, thank you for everything …. Guys, if you’re in SA and you need a mechanic, go check these guys out (they have stores in numerous locations). We can’t fault their work and service and would happily recommend them to others.

Lastly, the only downside in this whole situation is the lack of help from Toyota Australia – numerous phone calls and emails and not a single reply. We are on our second Prado and we also have a Hilux so we obviously love our Toyota’s, but it’s very disappointing to have no contact or backing at all from Toyota. We have a copy of a 4 page Toyota bulletin outlining this problem so we know they are aware and admitted that cracked pistons are a common issue with these engines so it’s very disappointing they won’t even reply. But like we said, that is the only downside to our whole situation and hopefully one we will never, ever have to go through again!

On the way home from Adelaide, free camping, campfires and sky full of stars …… back doing what we love doing best!
