Description: The Aussie Road Trip! Australia - the island - is famous for being a remote and rugged beauty... but what about the islands that inhabit Australia’s coastline?
Without question our surrounding islands are some of the most unique on the planet - raw, moody, beautiful and dramatic. White sandy beaches, tropical reefs and fish, rugged wind blown landscapes, shipwrecks, war memorial pieces, and island vibes totally unique to Australia.
Naturally these are quintessential Aussie lifestyle locations inclusive of surfing, boating, diving, bicycle riding, hiking and of course, beach bronzing...without the crowd. Each unique Island has its own distinct characteristics.

"October 25, 2016 commemorated the 400th anniversary of Dirk Hartog landing in WA in 1616. This anniversary inspired me to embark on this journey to pay homage to my heritage, seek out my ancestor’s steps and explore one of the more mysterious and spectacular regions of the Australian coastline." @Sebbyhartog
