About us

So who are The Joneses and why are we blogging all about our life? In short, we LOVE Australia! We love everything about this glorious land and want to travel to every corner of this smallest continent and every patch of red dirt in-between.

Follow our adventures as we live full time in our off-road caravan exploring coastal reefs to the parched central deserts. Animal encounters abound and excitement awaits! And there is so much history, culture, ecology and (my fav) geology to learn about. And we looove to do all the research and find the best little hidden stories to read you along the way.

We are Suzy, Jed and our two young girls Maddie and Violet. Join us for one hell of a wild Australian ride!
