Welcome to our new blog, Hazelwoods on Tour. We are a family of 3, husband/dad is Brandon, wife/mum is Zoe and daughter Charlotte (we also have two fur children, Lucy-Lou, our Jack Russell Terrier, and Dobby who is a miniature dachshund).
In 6 months we will begin our own ‘big lap’ of Australia, taking some long-overdue long service leave to drive anti-clockwise around this great country we call home. Leaving from our home in Brisbane, we’ll travel north to Cape York, then across the top of Australia to see Katherine, the Bungle Bungles and Lake Argyle. Then we head to Broome, and travel down the West Australian coast to Albany in the south, before starting the eastern trek across the Nullabor (hopefully with time to head up to Uluru). After a quick stop down in Tasmania we turn north and head back home.
We have started this blog as a keepsake of our trip, and to allow our family and friends to share in our adventures as we complete our amazing journey. We are starting the blog now, in January 2017, to include our preparations and the lead up to our departure. We have a lot to do to get ready, including learning how to set up and pack up our brand new camper trailer! We plan to do a lot of weekend trips away between now and when we leave; we don’t want any surprises and we need to know exactly what to expect with the camper while we’re on the road. It will be a long way to turn around and head back if we have forgotten something!
We hit the road in July and that point we will write regular blog posts, including photos and videos of the places we go and the incredible things that we see. Our friends, family and anyone else who might be interested can follow our lap and see what we’re up to while we’re away. Charlotte will also do some posts, to stay in touch with her school friends and show her class what she has been up to while we are on the road.
So why not click the “follow” button and check back with us from time to time – our adventure is only just beginning!
