Even though our actual two year trip travelling the country is all over now, I am still writing it! I do have our Australia Travel Blog sitting in Travel Pod but am gradually transferring it here. (TAWK was born upon our return). I am of course busy building this web site and administering all the TAWK
Now, I'm only just getting going with this one, it's not really an Australia Travel Blog but really I'm blogging about my blogging about Travelling Australia With Kids!! And how I made it into a home business.
It will be about how I miss travelling and how this website keeps my foot in the door, so to speak!

Hi! I’m Cam, a sole dad and homeschooler to my 9 year old ASD rockstar, Jaiden.
Mid 2012 I was working full time as an IT tech and on the way into work one day I had somewhat of a life epiphany, I looked around the train and saw a bunch of miserable looking people, so I decided something had to change! All I’d ever wanted to be in life was to be a good dad, something I’d never had. It hit me that dumping my boy at kindy at 6:30am and picking him up at 5:45pm every day was leaving me very little time or energy to do anything I wanted to do, including parent. So I did the only logical thing to do. I quit my stable job, sold everything I owned and purchased a car and an old 70’s caravan and set off on an 18 month caravaning “adventure”.
We (Matt and Justine) decided we had, had enough of living in Brisbane. With two young children (Madeleine & Bella) we knew that we wanted to do something amazing while they were still young. We made the decision that Travelling Australia as a family would be our challenge. Little did we know that decision would create such an amazing lifestyle change.
In 2013 we packed our life up and decided to hit the road! We loved travelling Australia so much that we decided to extend our trip, slow the pace down and work our way around instead. We embraced our lifestyle change so much that we sold the family home and now searching for a new place to call home.
Hi! I’m Lily and we are a family of four, consisting of yours truly, Geoff, Max (3) and Ivy (2). I spend a fair chunk of my time driving around with the kids in our VW campervan and I find myself fielding a lot of questions while we are on the road, from parents who would love to be doing something similar.
This blog is a place to answer those questions, share cool tips, review places to stay, to tell stories and all manner of info relating to getting out there and adventuring with small humans in tow. And, hopefully build a community of like minded folk at the same time!
Life Outside Work is a family blog about one family's travels and adventures in Oz! They are working on seeing as much of this beautiful country as they can ...one caravan trip and adventure at a time!

Laz and Sue started full time travel around Australia in November 2016. There's currently no end date planned. With so much to see and do around this beautiful country they wanted to document their journey in this travel blog. They will be sharing their travel as we keep doing the big lap. Their hope is to inspire and encourage anyone thinking about travelling Australia to do it now.
Not TAWKers, but no Grey Nomads either! Follow their travels and be inspired.
The blog's title is a twist on my favourite Dr Suess book, "Oh The
Places You'll Go". Unsuprisingly that blog address was unavailable, so
this was a nice little tweak. For those who don't know the book (and
your life isn't complete until you do) it is a book I love reading to
the kids for the messages it contains. It's go messages of empowerment,
inspiration, confidence and adventures. It's about taking chances and
following your heart. But also about the tough times, slumps and
lurches. It perfectly aligns with the messages we want to pass on to our
kids and supports what we are trying to achieve with our upcoming
adventure. Follow our journey with us.
After becoming a TAWK Featured Family, I found out that Kelly has this great resource for families that are either on the road and homeschooling or who would like to homeschool in the future. There are even courses you can take and let's face it; we all need help here! Lots of ideas and inspiration that will make you realise that; Yes, you can do this.

We are embarking on an indefinite trip around this beautiful country, in our tiny house on wheels custom built by Matt, towing a caravan. Our aim is to live simply, sharing our story and spreading the word about healthy living on the road.

Caravanning with Kids changed Wayne and Adele’s lives. Both busy business people in country Victoria, their lives seemed to get busier and busier and weekends were chewed up with jobs, work and chores. This was not much fun for their two young daughters and after one holiday to Adelaide they soon realised that they needed to do something about this.
tracks the adventure of a family of 5 who decided to sell up everything
in Melbourne and live the dream of travelling around Australia. They
have over 25 years of camping experience and their website offers tips
on camping, caravanning and 4 wheel driving. There are quite a few
real life product reviews thrown into the mix as well and I think we all love that!!
We are a family of four who sold our house and everything in it to travel full time. We're just about to set out on our adventure and plan to travel Australia indefinitely.

Rhianna, Mr Awesome, their three children, Lovely (13), Zany (8) and Teapot (4), are having their adventure of a lifetime as they take twelve months off normal life and road trip around Australia.
As well as documenting their travels Rhianna blogs about all things and I find myself clicking on all sorts of subjects on her blog and usually end up thinking 'That is so right!' as she captures many things that we can all relate to.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you took a
career-minded couple from Brooklyn, NY, and set them and their twin four
year-old sons loose in Outback Australia? This family did just that and what an entertaining read it is! A great perspective from some non Aussies as they enjoy TAWKing.
You simply must read the entry entitled 'The night that must not be spoken of' under the Camping Life section.
I particularly like the Trailer Park Trash Blog for all the homeschooling information. If homeschooling is your concern, then you need to have a look at their homeschooling section. There are lots of photos, ideas and Leigh is very helpful should you have any questions on how she does things. This is a great Australian travel blog.
Even the two boys have their own blog!
Steve created his site back in 2005 in preparation for his family’s 4wd
adventure to the extremes of Australia. Over 16 months, Steve, his wife
Jen and his daughters Savanna (4) and Sara (1) travelled over 46,000 km
through every state and territory in Australia having what can only be
described as the adventure of a lifetime.
Straight from the heart this one!
Whenever I read the 'Are we there yet times 3' blog, I feel as though it could be me writing it. Somehow Shantelle hits the nail on the head and I know exactly what she is saying.
It's a great read.
