These pages and the blog will be mainly about my 4WD trip around Australia. I am planning a trip over 4-5 years, and will spend about 3 months a year in Australia. The first part of the trip was done in 2018 between mid-May and mid-August, and took me from Melbourne to Darwin via Perth.
The trip is dedicated to my parents, John (Jack) and Margaret Harper. Dad instilled in me a love of the bush, and introduced the Harper boys to camping and bushwalking; I think our first bushwalk was in Wilson’s Promontory when I was 10 and Rob 8. My Mum wielded her home making skills in camp, and probably endured rather than enjoyed camping. Happy days, and a wonderful start to my life, and that of my brothers.
