A Year in Australia

We've shipped our Tiger overland vehicle from California to Australia for a planned one year stay on this, our sixth continent.
Both our own tourist visas and the provisions for bringing in a vehicle for touring limit us to a twelve month stay.  We understand it may be possible to extend both of these items, but don’t yet know whether we will try to do that.

Australia is a very big country, nearly as large as the continental US, so we know that even with a full year to explore we’ll need to keep moving.  We’re very excited to be here and have seen right from the start, that it is even more interesting and beautiful than we’d expected.  We are now half way through our year, have traveled about 18,000 miles  (29,000 kms), met lots of other travelers and continue to have a marvelous experience.

Here are the links to our stories and photo pages from Australia.
