Canberra to Lake Eyre
By Rachel Power

In February 2010 my husband and I watched a documentary on the amazing spectacle of Lake Eyre in flood. We decided that should it ever flood again we would be there to experience it.  By May, we knew Queensland flood waters would reach Lake Eyre and the Great Aussie Road Trip swung back into action!   This was the first trip for us with the newest member of our family, Edward (Teddy) who turned one just before we left. So Greg and I, along with our daughters Jasmine and Jemma, and Teddy, hit the road for three incredible weeks. We drove three days (roughly 1,700kms) from Canberra to Lake Eyre.   With our trusty 3Dog Camper in tow, we set up camp at Halligan Bay and walked over the dune to be greeted by the awesome sight of Lake Eyre. Out there you can’t tell where ... Read more

Port Lincoln
By Kylie Jane Degeling

Matthew Flinders knew he was onto something when he discovered Port Lincoln. In February 1802, he sailed into Boston Bay where he found beautiful beaches, bountiful seafood, and fascinating flora and fauna all around. It must have been tough to continue his job of charting unexplored coastline, when he knew he had already found paradise. Secretly he fantasised about leaving Port Lincoln off the charts altogether so that he could sneak back, pitch his hammock, and lead a life of pure contentment while feasting on the gifts of the land and sea around him. But alas, he charted this oceanfront jewel of the Eyre Peninsula ensuring we could all discover her beauty for ourselves. Sunshine in the south: Considered to be the driest state in the driest continent in the world (well…other... Read more
