My partner and i are travelling around oz starting early next year, leaving from Brisbane and going north. We plan to go for 6 months to start and see how we go. We have an 1978 Landcruiser (it's in great condition) which we plan to use.
We plan to install a dual battery system for a car fridge, ect, as well as build shelves in the rear of the car. The car does chew a bit of fuel, however, and we are considering converting it to LPG (dual system). How available is LPG in the outback and is it worth the change?
I'm interested in anyone who has done any long distance travelling in a 4wd who can help me out...
Also, we have started saving up for the trip, but i was interested on how much cash people have spent while travelling (we plan to do some work along the way!)
