PostSubject: Gold Rig's Aussie Top Ten   Tue Mar 11, 2014 11:37 pm

We stopped a couple of days in Noosa and made it out to Inskip Point and Rainbow Beach ( a beautiful coast) and out on to Fraser Island and to get back to Noosa we drove along 40 mile beach, yes for all those wondering it is 40 miles long and the same rules apply on the beach as on the road. It was a fantastic trip and I am hoping to come back out for longer next time and do the Kimberly's, Pilbara and down the west coast to Perth where I did live for 2 years and follow the coast down to Albany,Esperance along the A1 to Port Augusta, up to Ayrs Rock, down to Adelaide and up to Sydney if that is where my daughter is still living. The Victoria highlands will hopefully be done as long as they're not burning!!!
When I get it booked I'll let you know.

Thanks Tom. It's easy to take good photos when you live in Paradise. All I do is point and click.

It's not always fine weather in Australia but that doesn't stop the girls from playing on the beach in their bikinis.

GOD I LOVE AUSTRALIA.

Slippery when wet. The question is ... am I referring to the sign or the girls in bikinis?  scratching chin

Just spent 16 days on Fraser Island. The world's largest sand island and without doubt the best camping spot on Earth.

Truly heaven on earth. Off-roaders around the world have heard about Frazer Island ... if only? Crying or Very sad

I'm truly lucky to have this right on my doorstep. If any of you ever get over here I can organise to show you this area. It really doesn't take much of an excuse to get me to go there.

Stop making excuses Tom. Just man up and sell a kidney or maybe your first born child and buy a ticket over here.

A kidney maybe, but the boozy abuse I've given my liver over the years, I doubt if I'd get many pennies for that!

Yet to do Oz, but one day I will. That's a point, you ever been over here?

Somehow, don't think he's referring to Frazer Island!

Oz will have to wait a little longer, as this year I shall be visiting India, Thailand and Vietnam first, then on to Malaysia for the Rainforest Challenge (where incidentally I'll have a beer or three with the lads from Queensland - Dave Metcalfe who runs Xtreme 4x4 Sport, you may know him), then back to Thailand for some more off-roading with the LROCM Land Rover Owners Club Malaysia who are meeting up with their Thai mates (mostly Hiluxes) for yet another jungle excursion.

All that will take almost two months - can't wait!
