About the trip

Circumnavigation of Australia is complete!

On the 2nd of July 2010 I left Melbourne to ride around Victoria for three months. 

I returned to Melbourne for a fortnight before leaving again on the 10th October 2010 to head east along the VIC coastline, up the east coast to Brisbane. (Early December I side-tripped to Canberra. I stayed in Newcastle for two weeks around Christmas and New Years).

I stayed in Brisbane for three months, waiting for the floods to ease and the Bruce Highway to stop closing every two days.

On the 5th of May 2011 I headed off again up the east coast, riding up to Cooktown via the Bloomfield Track, back to Cairns via the Mulligan Highway (inland) and along the Savannah Way (Gulf Development Rd) to Normanton and Kurumba. Next I rode the Matilda way down to Cloncurry and Mt Isa, riding to the NT border and up to Darwin, via Kakadu, by mid August.

From Darwin headed (via Litchfield) to Broome, then the big stretch between roadhouses (300 k between Roebuck and Sandfire) to Port Hedland. Down the west coast to Perth, Albany, Esperance. 

From Esperance headed up to Kalgoorlie, caught the Indian Pacific to Adelaide. Rode back via the Nullarbor. Caught a flight from Esperance to Adelaide. Rode on back to Melbourne.

Arrived in Melbourne on the 7th January 2011, 24050 km later. You can see a map of all the places I camped over here.

In April 2013 we cycled the east coast of Tasmania and May 2014 we cycled over to Adelaide (and back) for the Velocity conference.

Between July 2015 and December 2015 we rode from Swan Hill to Adelaide (via Kangaroo Island), Mawson Trail (in parts) to Flinders Ranges, up the middle and to Uluru- Kata tjuta, to Katherine and Broome. Then from Perth to Adelaide over the Nullarbor. Then the west coast of Tasmania.
