G’day, we are Warrick, Fabienne, Celeste and Charlotte, an Aussie family who is 9 months into a 2 year roadtrip around Australia to explore the extraordinary beauty our continent has to offer. Australia is just magical, it is blessed with the purest water, the freshest air and the friendliest people. We are living our lives to the full […]

I like coming to the beach every day, working by the ocean, giving information, helping out people, telling people where to swim, […]
