Australian Adventure
Hello fellow RV enthusiasts,

Instead of trying to explain our RV travels in words and pictures, we have decided to share flying Australia with you in the form of a video blog.

We are flying across, around and over Australia to see what our country has to offer. Come along and join in, on our Australian Adventure!

Find us on the web:

Our rv is a tip up, tail wheel 7, with all Garmin gadgets. It has a IO-360 Lycoming turning the Hartzel constant speed prop.

It does take as a while to put together the videos (we are still learning), so check back from time to time.

Episode 1 is up, hope you enjoy!

Excellent Video!
Alicia and Haydn, congratulations on the excellent video on the first leg of your Australian Adventure. Can't wait to see the next installment of your flight.

Spent most of last summer flying off Phase 1 in my RV-9A. Summer of 2016, I hope to experience some long cross country flights - sort of a Canadian Adventure.

Thanks for the motivation to start planning my flights!

Hi Alicia and Haydn. You have already passed overhead on your way to Cobar. I'm doing the engine baffles on an RV 9 at Mudgee. Just a heads up, if you are near gliders the gliding frequency is 122.7, always good to give a shout and let them know you are about. Great video and are looking forward to the next one.

Wish tailwinds upon you :)
Epic adventure!

Thanks for posting the video

I posted on your facebook page, If you ever make it as far as WA make sure to give me a call if you need any help or a place to park :)

You will thank yourself over and over again for the autopilot:)

Safe travels, and hope you are blessed with tailwinds:p

Hi Guys

Why not post an expected bicentenary so that fellow aviators can meet up with you ?

Great video. You guys are living the dream.

The folding bicycles are great.

Hadyn, you know it is true….the whole country is one big Emu/Roo/Feral Pig-Cat-Dog farm. :D

Enjoy the trip, its worth it.

Hi Eddie, great idea. I'll have to work on that. At this stage our adventures are not physically going around the outside of the country as there would be too much missed on the inside. So really we are flying over, across and around Australia. The trip being presented, includes Cobar, Whitecliffs, Broken Hill and Silverton, Wilpena Pound, Clare Valley, Adelaide, a week on the Murray river, Kangaroo Island, Meningie and a brief stop at Mildura.

We have spoken about down the track, inviting others to come along.

Thanks for the idea.
