Gill and Peter like to travel. In 2011/12 they completed a trip around Australia. One of the things that they are aware of is the fact that to live your dream then you actually have to do something and that's what they did. In 2013 they decided to further explore outback Australia and crossed the Simpson Desert. Going forward they will continue to travel as they plan for the next few years.

The quokka is a small rat like animal in the kangaroo family. They are found on the island and we saw a couple. This one was sitting under the picnic tables at one of the outside restaurants. The quokka didn't come up to you but certainly wasn't afraid and didn't run in the opposite direction.
