The migration of gray nomads heading from colder winter climates towards the sunshine and warm winters of the tropics, happens around the globe and especially here in Australia.
Some understanding of the roads and service available is needed before choosing your route.
Reg and I love touring ‘outback’, well outside of the roadside service access area and we strive to stay on roads that are travelled daily by truck drivers, carry a lot of water, and have a powerful 4 wheel drive vehicle and some funds on us to ‘tip’, any truck driver who might have to assist us in an emergency.
The photos are of Port Douglas, about as far north as the average gray nomad, tows their caravan on the east coast of Australia.
