After retirement in June 2016, Elizabeth and Steve - having sold their house, car and most of their belongings - headed to Australia to house and pet sit their way around the country. They will take you along on their adventure with photos and stories.

Learn about the wonderful people they met and how even a trip to the grocery or gas station can be interestingly different. Traveling the country in their used "ute", they will introduce you to the wildlife, the cemeteries, the beaches, and the limitless landscapes of Australia. From Darwin to Hobart, Brisbane to Perth, and Cairns to Sydney, join them as they relive this 16-month adventure.

I love a sunburnt country, A land of sweeping plains, Of ragged mountain ranges, Of droughts and flooding rains. I love her far horizons, I love her jewel-sea, Her beauty and her terror The wide brown land for me! From "My Country" by Dorothea Mackellar (Australian poet and novelist, 1885-1968
