This year I took the opportunity to do something big - drive from one side of Australia to the other and back, a round-trip of a little over 7900km (4900mi). The great Aussie road-trip!

The main purpose of the trip was to attend the Williams "Wildfire" Westernationals event near Perth, Western Australia. Organised and hosted by the good folk at Tripoli Western Australia for the past 3 years, with 2012 being the 4th.

I've uploaded photos of the trip to Flickr

Along the way, stops were made at Woomera, The Great Australian Bight, the Perth Zoo and Wave Rock as well as crossing the Nullarbor Plain. Check out the full set of photos (broken up by each day) here.
