Starting At Noosa, QLD with my troop carrier, I cross the continent. about 7 days, not pushing it too hard. Some longer stretches.
Easy driving past broken hill to Port Augusta SA, across the Nullabor - flat, big cliffs dropping to the sea.
2 days relaxing at Cape Arid National Park - wild and large. 2wd access to Thomas river camp, nice small nooks to camp in with privacy, 10$ / night.
Roaring surf, big dumpers. I walk a small coastal track to a small bay. The next day I mountain bike along the easy dirt roads to Tagon Beach. This is my first time across in a vehice. And first time East of Perth. Some nice beaches and bouldering.
Do a bit of rust maintenance on the van, Organize my gear.
Then off towards Kalgoorlie, where I am to start work as a Driller's offsider.
Hard work running around with heavy soil samples, diggging ditches etc. But a good way to save.
