The amazing caravan roadtrip of Kate Ulman and family.  These pics by Rohan Anderson.

I received a wonderful out-of-the-blue email recently from Daylesford-based Kate Ulman, who is currently on the road, spending 6 months on an incredible adventure with her husband Brendon and their three young daughters, discovering Australia in a fabulous re-vamped 1980’s caravan!


It’s a truly inspiring journey which you can share vicariously through Kate’s blog – she’s been documenting the journey online since the start of their trip.

When not adventuring around our sunburnt country with their gorgeous kids in tow, Kate and Brendon run Daylesford Organics – a certified organic family farm in Daylesford with a focus on sustainability and biodiversity.   The Daylesford Organics blog is also well worth a visit… I have never seen such vibrant multicoloured vegetables!

    oh lordie!! What a blast from the past… My parents took me and my two sisters on a road trip through NT and western Qld when I was 5… and we went to the Devil’s Marbles… Formative years. We camped in our old Matilda folding trailer tent though, nothing quite as luxurious as Kate’s deluxe mobile!

    I can’t believe this post was a year ago.
    I’ll never forget being in a mechanics in Kunnunarra with two blown tyres when I got a text from a friend to tell me about your post. Talk about two worlds colliding.
    I’m so pleased I did blog it all to look back on now.
    I think it’s time for the next adventure.
