The distance between the westernmost and easternmost point of Australia is about 4,000km as the crow flies. We allowed 12 days to complete this traverse, based loosely on a trip Aussie Adventurers The Leyland Brothers pioneered 50 years before in their Documentary, “Wheels across a Wilderness”. Sure, we would be traveling in a luxurious McMansion on wheels, but we were still trekking from Steep Point in western, Western Australia to Byron Bay in NSW’s north east, seeing parts of Australia usually reserved for Grey Nomads, and racing against the clock. This was not likely to be a piece of cake.
