Australia is a truly iconic destination; its buildings, wildlife and even shape are known around the world. It's a land of kangaroos and koalas, Aborigines and the dusty red Outback, surfer dudes and addictive television soap operas. Away from these predicable images of Oz, however, lies a country as complex as it is vast. Choose from my separate journeys in this incredible country.


I'll make it to my seventh Australian state or territory with a 1400km road trip along coastal Queensland, starting in the State capital Brisbane and concluding in Cairns - home to the wondrous Great Barrier Reef.

northern territory: uluru & yulara

This was a trip 3000km westward from Sydney to experience the evocative and iconic Outback in Australia's legendary Northern Territory; a land of red deserts, Aborigines and a magical rock called Uluru.

outback new south wales

We hit the vast open road to sample a substantial slice of Country and Outback New South Wales. From Wild West-style Gold Rush towns to surreal lunar-like landscapes, this was a road trip to end all road trips.

western australia: perth & rottnest

This was a visit to Perth, the state capital of WA and one of the most isolated cities on the planet. It was also a golden opportunity to visit the magical land of the Quokkas on Rottnest Island.


I have called the New South Wales state capital home for a year; it's an opportunity to chronicle a city beyond its famous landmarks. Welcome to a Sydney seen through the eyes of a British immigrant: me.

new south wales far north

This was a 2000km road trip to New South Wales' Far North. What I thought would be a pedestrian trip turned into an adventure with giant stinging trees, thousands of Flying Foxes and sub-tropical rainforests.

australian capital territory

This mini road trip to Australian Capital Territory was my fourth Aussie state. A mere 300km south west of Sydney lies Canberra, this sunburnt country's modernist bush capital and national meeting place.


Starting from the capital Hobart, this was a road trip along Tasmania's famous Great Eastern Drive; a drive punctuated by wilderness, waterfalls, rainforests, mountainscapes and pure white beaches.

coastal new south wales

This was a 1000km road trip along coastal New South Wales from Minnamurra in the south to Port Macquarie in the Mid-North; a thrilling journey of sand dunes, Jurassic rainforests and pristine beaches.

south east australia

This was a road trip along Australia's south east coast from Sydney to Melbourne, driving along the famous Princes Highway stopping at Narooma, Mallacoota and the awesome Blue Mountains.
