The Places We Go

Helen recently shared an exciting update in the Campfire Chat about the WA girls’ adventurous journey. On their way to Stuck In The Middle in Alice Springs. They made it to the border along the Great Central Road, marking a significant milestone in their trip. The Great Central Road is a renowned route that traverses some of Australia’s most remote and stunning landscapes, providing both challenges and breathtaking views.

Congratulations to Helen and the WA girls for their remarkable achievement. Here’s to more exciting travels and shared stories from the road!
