I purchased your guide
towards the end of October last year (2019).
I have found it full of really
helpful, practical information with lots of ‘nuts and bolts’ advice
which is exceptionally useful for planning the detail of our trip.
Thank you for all the
hard work you put into producing and maintaining this amazing resource.

As I reported once before, we did our

for each days travel to ensure we didn't miss anything we wished to see
The guide is a must have, thank

Just wanted to let you know that we have just come home from our 5 week
Cape York trip and thanks
to you planner and trip guide we had a ball!
The information in both books was extremely
useful during the planning and journey of our trip and we would not be as organized or
have had such a great time without them.
It was very helpful to be following the advice of someone who is there
on the ground and to go
to the places that not everyone knows about.
Keep up the good work and
we will be recommending your books to all others who we
know are planning this trip!!
