Hi I'm Jess,

Like Brett, I too had an adventurous upbringing, spending much time with family and friends on camping adventures, water-skiing and trips away.

Moving to Blackstone, for us, was a challenge but undoubtedly the best thing we ever did! It has shaped us in ways we could never have imagined and given us many amazing experiences and life lessons. It also fuelled the fire in our bellies that is adventure.

I love a challenge and outdoor adventure and activity but I also love photography and early childhood education (that is teaching and watching children learn, particularly birth to 5yrs), which happens to be my profession. 

I enjoy trying to capture all our travel and the amazing sights we see. I consider it as documenting our trips. Although I am no expert, I must say that I think the real deal beats a photo any day of the week.

We are now in the community of Docker River. Unlike most people we made the conscious decision to move here with a baby on the way... and "just see how it goes". With our daughter here now, we have been able to pass on our love for outdoor life to her. Due to the nature of our location we are well versed in remote camping, driving and travelling long distances with her (e.g. we did a 3800km trip in a week with her before she was 6weeks old), this stuff is unavoidable and normal for us now.

We really want to inspire and help others to adventure out, explore, do whatever, however to experience the outdoors and this incredible land.

about us

I'm Brett

My wife and I started this website as we wanted to give every Australian the chance to experience some of the things and places we have been lucky enough to experience. There is a lot of advice out there on the internet but not much of it is tailored or interactive. Jess and I want to be a sounding board for all your questions and uncertainties before you head off on your next trip. Whether you're a first timer in a Honda CRV or a 4WD veteran looking for detailed information on the Red Centre, we are here to help.

Jessica and I moved to Blackstone WA when we were only 18. Blackstone is a remote indigenous community, around 90km south of the Great Central Road and one of the more remote places in Australia. This experience, combined with our upbringing has lead to us really having our heads around 4WDing, camping and adventure. We have the most useful travel information.

We have moved around a lot which has given us an abundance of experience and knowledge of camping, 4WDing and having adventures in different parts of Australia. We grew up in Newcastle and I lived five minutes from Stockton Beach. I cut my teeth here with the help of my unlce and grandfather.

We spent a couple of years living in Central Queensland before moving back to the desert and to where we call home now, Docker River. 2015 will mark our 5th year living in this area and boy have we had some fun! We can't wait to get to know you and help you get out on your next adventure!
