This first episode we depart from Perth and make our way to Kalgoorlie where we meet up with the other half of the convoy. From there we head inland toward Ayres Rock. Many nights spent along the Great Central Road make for an epic adventure!
In this episode we hit the peak of our adventure!
We make the long drive up to the tip of Cape York taking the Old Tele Track. One of the most iconic 4wd tracks in the whole of Australia, with over 15 fresh water river crossings.
We get a special photo and the tip, spend a couple of nights at loyalty beach, then make our way south again. The decision to cross the Jardine River by 4wd and not by the ferry turns out to be one heck of a challenge. Four cars get bogged and three of which, completely flooded. Find out how we manage to get out of the mess!
With three of the convoy having to limp their way back to Cairns for repairs after all the excitement of crossing the Jardine River in episode 2. Myself, Liam and Reece are left to explore the rest of what the cape has to offer.
We make our way out to Captain Billy’s Landing, drive the Frenchmans Track and take the long 11 hour track out to Cape Melville. One of the more remote drives of my life, but the result is landing at one of my favourite campsite in the whole of Australia, well actually it still is my favourite to this day!
This episode we are finally reunited with the rest of the group and make our way down the coast towards Brisbane. The features in this episode include an EPIC drive out to Cape Palmerston, a week spent on Fraser Island and reaching the most Eastern tip of Australia in Byron Bay.
A bit of fun was had on Fraser with our 4wds and we also check out the ship wreck the Maheno. My mate Kevin joined us for this trip being a Queensland local he knew some great spots and wasn’t too bad behind the camera either! Check out the bonus episode on my channel “Fraser Island September 2016”.
The final episode of this trip. An absolute EPIC with over 60 days and nights spent on the road, camping under the stars, not showing for days on end, not two days being the same made it the best trip of my life. 15,000kms, 3500L of fuel and multiple breakdowns yet I would do it all again in a heartbeat! We finish off this episode with a special question and answer section where I ask the boys a few questions about the trip, including a list of breakdowns they encountered…
Thanks You for following the adventure J
