Mike and I joined a 26 day tagalong tour that was leaving from St George in southern inland Queensland, in mid September, travelling across the middle of Australia to the west coast and back. There were 12 other people, mostly couples, plus the tour leader and a cook. The trip was fully catered; all we had to do was pitch our tent each day and provide our own refreshments, alcohol and nibblies. We had a broad mix of eight vehicles including Toyota, Nissan, Holden, Ford and Mitsubishi and just as diverse a mix of personalities.
What a fabulous experience!
