Camping 4wd around Australia starting soon!!

Hi everyone! My name is Jason and I'm almost ready to set off on a random photography trip around Australia! As I'm in a Landcruiser GXL, I've decided that getting a second person for the trip will be better, financially. I'm limiting expenditure on fuel to ONE tank of fuel per week. That's 140 litres, which is around $230 a tank for 98 octane petrol (Landcruiser 4.5 litre petrol runs beautifully as long as e10 isn't used). A full tank covers around 750-800kms. Then there's the accommodation factor. I currently have a good tent. It comfortably fits 2-3 people and I can stand up in it. I'm happy to sleep in the Landcruiser if you're worried. Even if we don't stay in caravan parks with shower facilities, I refuse to let 2 days go by without having a shower, especially up North. Truck stops all around the country offer showers for a small fee, as do most caravan parks, even if you aren't staying there. I'm currently in Tamworth and will be leaving here on Sunday, heading North and to the coast. I'll leave on the big trip when I find someone to join me. The bottom line is you'll need about $300 per week (that'll cover your share of fuel, food and a few nights in a caravan park per week) and you'll see more than in a group of backpackers with no experience in a campervan (which you can't go off-roading in). I've done this trip a few times, I'm a wildlife expert and safety is my prime objective. If you're from overseas you MUST have travelers insurance as mine won't cover you. If interested, please contact asap!! Cheers!
