The national parks, beautiful waterholes and beaches, and a sprinkle of the unknown on this journey certainly turned it into another amazing Aussie adventure and although not quite off the beaten track as we would like, it is certainly a coastline worth exploring.
Apologies for the delay in updates but we are constantly in and out of range and struggling with wifi coverage… Stayed tuned for our adventures

The vibrant colours that changed with the light, the natural amphitheatre of Wilpena Pound, the rocky mountain ranges, craggy outcrops and ancient cliffs are all part of this majestic Flinders Ranges National Park, or ‘Ikara’ as it is known to the Adnyamathanha people, the traditional owners of this land – ‘Ikara’ meaning ‘Meeting Place’.
We will remember them… They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
Our ‘Mighty Murray Drive’ is over and we have had one amazing time.
There is certainly something special about ‘The Mighty Murray’- the beautiful ‘River Red Gums’, the friendly people, the gorgeous river towns dotted along the way, and so many amazing free river camps.
I really hope you have enjoyed our journey as much as we did…we can’t recommend this drive enough!
