Climbing the giant trees in Pemberton

Standing in front of a giant tree in the forests around Pemberton is very impressive and you will suddenly feel very small.

Road Trip from Perth to Alice Springs – The longest shortcut in Australia

On the Road Trip from Perth to Alice Springs

The road trip from Perth to Alice Springs is 3’607 km long if you want to drive on well-developed, sealed roads. Since we can also handle difficult 4WD tracks with our Troopy, well-developed roads are not a must for us. On the contrary.
