Thermal Hot Springs at Mataranka

Follow us on our Odyssey

We’re a crazy family of 4 who love to travel together in a tent or our new Lifestyle camper, each of us was born in a different state but we call Darwin home.

Ever wanted to hit the open road, take the stress levels down a notch and explore this amazing country we call Australia?

That’s our goal, and whilst we have commitments – jobs, kids and mortgages, it’s not easy to just take off for 3 months. So we started doing little weekend trips away – just a tent and a portable bbq. It wasn’t long before we fell in love with life on the short road and  discovered how easy it is.

So this blog is about short (and some long) get away trips around the Territory and beyond. We’ll be trying out different equipment and some new toys to see what works and what doesn’t. We’ll include tips about where to stay and what to see – hopefully our mistakes will make your camping better!

We want to share our experiences and chat with anyone who wants to visit the NT and would like a bit of local knowledge.
