Outback adventure 2019

I'm a professional woman in my mid 60s living in inner city Melbourne. I'm very keen to do an outback trip (no specific destination in mind for approxinataely 3 months) in 2019. I am keen to meet someone (male or female)  to do such a trip.  I would prefer someone from Melbourne only because it allows a bit of time to know each other in order to see how suitable a traveling match we may be. 

Ive done outback Qld, NSW, Vic WA & NT - twice and especially love North WA and NT in the right season.

I'm flexible on all fronts, i.e. place, time and vehicles (separate or share) etc. etc.  Please get in touch if you're interested...

Hello Heather.
Thanks for your post. I’m interested in your plan. Where starting out from? I’m in Melbourne. I did look at the current temperature - 39 degrees. What will this mean in a month’s time?

Hi John.
Yes, Brighton Baths sounds good. How does next Tuesday afternoon 7 May suit?
I’ve also had problems using this site. I’ve included my phone # in some kind of designated display box - so let’s see if it works. If not, I’ll put it in the msg box.
Best regards

Hi Mary,

Yes I would like to have a cuppa and a chat. Maybe Brighton Baths ? any day ( except Wednesday as that is my Ulysses Club Bike ride day ) . My timeline is very flexible with the only sort of fixed piont being Gibb River in the Kimberly on 10/July, everything else is optional for me as long as I am north of Capricorn for a good chunk of time and to miss the miserable Melbourne winter.

I have not used this site before and dont know how to swap contact details as it says not to put this info in the posts. Do you know how ?

Hi John.
Thanks for your email. I’m not sure about your timeline but your itinerary sounds great. I’m still working p/time so 6 weeks notice is a bit short notice 4dcecdfor me. Anyway, if you’d like to meet up for a drink & have a chat I’m up for it. I live in St Kilda and you’re at Beaumaris so somewhere in between would be ideal.
Best regards

I am 63 yo easy going Retired Electrical Engineer living atm in Beaumaris. I will be travelling all the way around the big loop in about 6 weeks time. Sydney first to visit 3 kids and then on to Cook Town to meet 4 other couples who I travel with. Then the Savanah Way , Bungle Bungles, Gibb River Road, Cape Leveque, then down the west coast. Our agenda is also rubbery allowing for each couples likes so we can leave and rejoin anytime. I am a fit, non smoker and only occasionally social drinker. I have a 200 series Landcruiser and a new 5 star off road van with everything including shower and toilet. Would like to meet and see if we hit it off anytime.

Howdy Rex.
Thanks for contacting me.
You say you are heading back to Perth but you don’t say from where. So, how about we have a chat when you’re in Melbourne visiting your brother early next year?

Hi Mary here. I'm a bit of a dunce when it comes to how these electronic noticeboard thingos work.  Anway, didn't get any email from anyone so figured at first no one was interesrted, so then decided to log on to the site to see if other people had posted anything about their plans - only to find there were 8 comments on my site.


Emma, sound like you are planning your trip for Oct this year, but if you are interested in anything next year please let me know. Happy to meet up with you in Gippsland if you find yourself there at the end of the trip. I'll be going to Wilson's Prom for the Xmas holiday break.


Carmine, I'd like to get in touch for a chat about any future travel plans you may have.


Derek, you sound pretty energetic - am wondering if I could match your pace? Happy to have a chat anytime though.
