We are Big Oz Explorers

We are Big Oz Explorers

Sell everything?

One day, we were on our way for a day outing from home, and I said to my partner Chris, “Would it be possible to just sell everything and buy a caravan to travel Australia?” I think he was quite shocked at the question but instantly replied with “YES! Let’s do it!”

Meet the Big OZ Explorers family – Chris, Sian, Jayda & Jack, enjoying their new lifestyle on the road at Hidden Valley, Yandina, QLD.

‘Big Oz Explorers’ was born

While planning our trip, we watched popular YouTube channels and travel videos for ideas and inspiration only to find a niche market that needed more content. With Chris having a background in online reviews, and my commercial experience, why not show the world Australia though our eyes? Not to mention the memories we are creating to look back on with our kids! With hours of name deciding (it’s like naming a child!) Big Oz Explorers was born…

The lucky country

Firstly, us Aussies are so lucky to call Australia home. Secondly, we live in an amazing country that has so many types of terrain and environments. At every turn there is something different to see. We have family in many states of Australia, and we love our travel which, has usually been overseas but it’s time to see Australia and visit the relatives!

Young nomads

We are looking forward to finding some of the most stunning locations, and eye opening experiences that Australia has to offer which most people don’t see every day. Most of all we want to share that experience with our kids while we are still ‘young’ nomads. Chris and I don’t ever want to say we ‘wish’ we went there but rather, we’re so glad we did.

Big Oz Explorers have set up camp while they travel Australia. This photo shows them camped by the side of lagoon at Bribie Island. They have their four wheel drive set up with a bat winged canopy over head. The lagoon water is very brown and appears to be fresh water. There are trees lining the edge of water.

One of our favourite locations on Bribie Island, QLD for a day out is Lagoon 2.

We live for adventure!

We enjoy finding 4×4 tracks, national parks, view points, stunning beaches and one-off experiences. Together we live for adventure and hope to inspire others to do the same.

And if you’ve gotten this far, cheers for reading and I hope we meet you on the road!

Chris, Sian, Jayda & Jack ❤︎
