From March to June of '24, I rode across Australia while mixing in a couple of long hikes to cap off a thorough excursion into the heart of Australia. It had been a dream of mine as a kid to see the Outback. So, when I started off from Sydney, little did I imagine how the Outback would effect me. From Sydney I rode to Canberra and then Melbourne using some bikepacking routes. From Melbourne I picked my way across the rugged southern coastline and inland below the Goiter Belt of southern Australia to Adelaide. From Adelaide I rolled on the Mawson Trail which I eventually connected to the isolated and rugged roads of the Outback. From Oodnadatta, I found my way across the western edge of the Simpson Desert and eventually hammered into Uluru and Alice Springs. There, I hiked the Larapintia Track and afterwards finished up the bikepacking adventure by cruising northward to Darwin which ended the ~5000 mile bikepacking journey. From Darwin I flew to Perth and took a bus to Albany where I would hike the Bibbulmun Track. Once back in Perth, I began the long flight home to the U.S. 

One of my favorite adventures to say the least. I just loved it, simply said. Below are the chapters of the OZ adventure. Enjoy, mate!
