Central Australia

Leaving Darwin after nearly three months of not being on the road it just couldn’t come quicker for either of us. In some ways it was just like starting from scratch. 

With the DMax repaired by Jamie and the wonderful crew at Fair Trade Autos in Darwin we headed south. As we had always originally intended through the center of Australia and down to Eyre Peninsula. So many bucket list items to tick off as well as completing the two South Australian Mile Beaches.
