Our journeys around Australia

Melbourne to Perth (The long way)

The route we plan to follow in 2009

See below for details.

In 2009 we flew into Perth and visited our son for a week before flying across to Brisbane to spend several days in the Byfield National Park with some friends.

We then flew south to Melbourne to pick up a car and camping equipment and then drove back to Perth via the centre.

After a week or two in Perth, we headed north to Exmouth to visit the Ningaloo Reef again.

In all we drove 14,000 km.

Rather than the luxery of a caravan, this journey was done using a tent!


We flew the red dotted routes and drove the yellow routes.
