Responding to your post. I'm not sure if you've hooked up with a travel companion. I am planning a trip for 2019 and probably on the road for as long as it takes to explore our magnificent country. I am 62 yr old male that is fit and loves the great outdoors. Let me know if your interested and we can exchange dialogue and see what transpires. Cheers Glenn

Hi Iam darryl looking for a travel buddy to travel Australia I have a van and car 69 year old young love to enjoy life

Posted By Darryl Mack on Sunday 8th July 2018 @ 13:48:04


Hi Mel,
My main goal is to share my travel intention around AUS somewhere in coming 3 years with someone who has equivalent intentions.
Have obtained a diesel van, which I have to prepare for the journey.
So I passed square one. Now the next steps.
Everything is still open, which can be filled in to both liking.
I'm a sole-trader and have still my work. Trying to terminate my work, so I can concentrate on the journey and everything what comes with it.
If this may interest you so far, please drop a line.
Kind regards.

Hi Mel

Thanks for getting back to me . I not looking fir a group .
Have a great time .


Posted By Helen on Friday 15th June 2018 @ 16:36:37


Hi Helen
It’s nice to hear from you, and that you want to do a similar adventure. I had three people who were already doing it, setup for the type of travel I want to do. They were all guys which is good, but it would be good to have another woman on board. Because I was looking at doing it next May haven’t taken it any further yet. Perhaps we should talk further?
Kind regards

Posted By MMS on Friday 15th June 2018 @ 13:39:56


Hi Mel
Have you had any joy with your travels
I’m seriously thinking of doing the same. It’s always been a dream. I’ve worked remote communities and not frightened by adventure.
I am also 55 and independent.
Anyways let me know how you went you never now

Hi,my name is rick, 62, I have a 22 ft 2017 caravan, all the modem
Cons, solely self sefiant, will be getting back on the road to do a bigger trip around Oz, send me an email

Posted By Rick on Wednesday 23rd May 2018 @ 00:21:51


Hi Mel, I have never done this before, writing or looking for a travel companion, I just thought something would unfold on my journey when the time was right.

My name is Peter I also am 55, such a great vintage. I have a fully setup enclosed ute and an 18 foot twin birth jayco poptop van. It is fully solar setup for complete off grid with over 1000watts system and 6 batteries. I have a kayak and all the fishing and crabbing gear, I totally have everything setup.

Huge water tanks, as well as a rain water catching setup, all 12 volt setup plus inverter when needed. 3 fridges, TV, AC and more. I plan to just wander around Australia for at least the next 5 to 10 years, no plans really, just do a lot of fishing and living off the land where possible. Free camping as much as possible, I have all the books and apps. About me, I am well educated, very easy going, average build, salt and pepper hair, 5’9 love most things, love nature and just listening to the sound of nothingness. I eat healthy, love to cook and love a wine.

I was planning to do it alone as I am a very quiet person, love nature (was a pro artist) but thought I might see if there is another female version of me out there. I don’t mind alone or with the right company, it will just happen. If you want to know more please send me a message and I can tell you more. Cheers Peter
