Lucky Bay Beach has the weirdest sand. The beautiful white sand near the water was like gak or slime, was fun to play in. Check out the video. #ruivencampers #sand #weirdsand #luckybay #luckybayesperance #esperance #seewa #ourbiglap #likegak
Lucky Bay πŸ€ πŸ€ I couldn’t wait to camp here. The kangaroos are so tame. You can pat them, hand feed them and they come right up to your camp. The beach has the weirdest sand. The beautiful white sand near the water was like gak or slime, was fun to play in. #ruivencampers #luckybay #luckybayesperance #kangaroo #esperance #seewa #patkangoroo
We had two very friendly kangaroos explore into our camper at Lucky Bay πŸ€πŸ˜‚ #ruivencampers #kangaroo #luckybay #westernaustralia #esperancewa #esperance
The Esperance Stonehenge is the only full size replica of the original Stonehenge that is in the UK. It appears as the original would have looked around 1950BC. The Stonehenge consists of 137 stones of Esperance Pink Granite that were all quarried locally. It is also a great place for the kids to play hide & seek. 🀣 #ruivencampers #stonehenge #esperance #esperancestonehenge #seewa #westernaustralia #learningontheroad #ourbiglap #livingthedream #thingstodoinwa

Greens Pool- It absolutely beautiful here. Crystal clear water, surround by huge rocks & sand. We didn’t end up swimming here as it was packed. Crazy busy!!!! #ruivencampers #greenspooldenmark #greenspool #busy #beach #seewa #westernaustralia #ourbiglap

Giant Tingle Tree- Some of the Giant Red Tingle Trees are over 400years old, over 70metres high and a girth of up to 25metres. #ruivencampers #gianttingletree #tingletree #seewa #westernaustralia #denmark #ourbiglap #learningontheroad #nature
Gloucester Tree- I can’t believe they actually let people climb this tree. You don’t wear a harness or anything. You climb up the steel pegs that are sticking out of the tree. It’s 53metres high and at the top there is a Lookout. It’s an old fire observation tower. I didn’t have proper shoes on and I wouldn’t let my boys climb it, so Jet, Cruz and I just posed for photos lol! Nathan climbed the whole way. #ruivencampers #gloucestertree #gloucestertreeclimb #seewa #westernaustralia #crazy #treeclimb #traveloz #firelookout #ourbiglap
Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse Tour- The tallest lighthouse in Western Australia and 3rd tallest Lighthouse in Australia. It soars 56 metres above sea level. We went on a tour inside the light house and got to climb up the 176steps to the top of Lighthouse. Out on the viewing deck up the top we got to see where the Indian and Southern Oceans meet. #ruivencampers #capeleeuwinlighthouse #capeleeuwin #insidelighthouse #indianocean #southernocean #lighthousetour #seewa #westernaustralia #ourbiglap #traveloz #travelozwithkids #ourbiglap
Historic Water Wheel- Cape Leeuwin Historic waterwheel used to supply the nearby Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse keepers with water. The waterwheel built to power a hydraulic ram, which would pump water from the nearby swamp to supply the lighthouse. #ruivencampers #waterwheel #historicwaterwheel #capeleeuwin #capeleeuwinaugusta #seewa #westernaustralia #traveloz #travelwithkids #learningontheroad #livingthedream #ourbiglap
Eagle Bay Brewery & Bunker Bay- Was so good to catchup with our friends from home & what better place to catchup than at a brewery. And Eagle Bay Brewery was just beautiful. Then off to Bunker Bay Beach for a swim and the boys (big & little) to burn off some energy. #ruivencampers #eaglebay #eaglebaybrewery #friends #bunkerbay #bunkerbaybeach #brewery #drinkswithfriends @livvylouc
Busselton Jetty- This is the longest timber-piled Jetty in the World. Stretching 1.8km out to sea. Due to the high winds the train along the Jetty got cancelled, so we walked in the crazy wind to the end of the Jetty. #ruivencampers #bussleton #bussletonjetty #bussletonbeach #windy #seewa #westernaustralia #travelozwithkids #traveloz
So incredible....took the boys kayaking this morning and a dolphin was swimming with Cruz while he kayaked πŸ’• 🐬 AMAZING!!!! #ruivencampers #dolphins #swimmingwithdolphins #kayakingwithdolphins #perth #seewa #lovedolphins #amazing #perthwa
Rottnest Island- We were very lucky to meet some new friends in Cervantes who were heading to Rottnest Island. We went along with them and had a fantastic 3 days. I couldn't wait to see the Quokka's there. The Quokka's are kind of a mix between a possum/wallaby/koala. The big thing to do is to try and get a selfie with a Quokka. It was actually quite hard to do. After many, many attempts I finally got one. πŸ˜‚ On NYE we saw the fireworks and slept in swags in the beach. #ruivencampers #rottnestisland #rottnestwa #quokka #quokkaselfie #seewa #traveloz #travelozwithkids #livingthedream #learningontheroad
HAPPY NEW YEAR Everyone. We are being in the new year on Rottnest Island. #ruivencampers #nye2017 #happynewyear #rottnestislandwa #rottnestisland
The Pinnacles- are limestone formations that have mysteriously risen from the sand dunes in the Nambung National Park. Some of the limestone pillars are up to 4m tall. #ruivencampers #thepinnacles #nambungnationalparkwesternaustralia #nambungnationalpark #westernaustralia #seewa #seeaustralia #travelaustralia #kidslearningontheroad #travelwithkids #livngthedream
Being on the road in a camper makes it very hard to get a Christmas Tree. Check out our Christmas Tree I made today. #ruivencampers #xmastree #christmastree #homemadexmastree #beachxmastree #beachchristmastree #xmasontheroad #christmasontheroad #travelling #travellingatchristmas
Pink Lagoon- Port Gregory This is something I was hanging to see all holiday the pink lakes. Unfortunately this time of year the lagoon has dried up and it's a lot of pink salt. πŸ˜‚. The pink hue is due to the presence of an algae. Depending on the time of day, the time of year, and the amount of cloud cover, the lake changes through the spectrum of red to bubble-gum pink to a lilac purple. #ruivencampers #pinklagoon #pinkwater #seewa #pinklake #westernauatralia #travelaustralia #ourbiglap #livingthedream #learningontheroad
Natures Window- Kalbarri One of W.A.'s most iconic natural attractions.

Steep Point- It is very hard to get here. Very corrugated and sandy track in. You definitely couldn't bring a caravan here. Once here it is MAGIC!! Camping on the beach front with beautiful turquoise water, white sand and shells everywhere. The water is so clear you can see the huge fish swimming past us from the beach. The boys and I spent hours and hours looking for shells. Lots of fishing, snorkelling, collecting oysters and just relaxing. This would have to be up there with the top spots of our holiday. #ruivencampers #steeppoint #steeppointwa #seewa #westernaustralia #shells #bigshell #crayfish #fishing #whitesand #livingthedream #camping #campinglife #beach #beachcamping #ourbiglap #magiccamp
Another βœ”οΈ off the bucket list. We made it to Steep Point. The most western point in Australia #ruivencampers #steeppoint #steeppointwa #westernaustralia #seewa #traveloz #travelaustralia #mostwestpoint #livingthedream #ourbiglap #
Shell Beach 🐚 - Denham Shell Beach is truely unique. It is one of only two places on the earth that shells replace the sand on the beach. The beach is formed from billions of tiny Cockle shells. The beach stretches for 120 kilometres with shells up to 10 metres deep. You definitely don't want to walk on this beach without shoes on.πŸ˜‚ #ruivencampers #shellbeach #cockleshell #cockleshellbeach #shellbeachwa #denham #seewa #seeaustralia #shells #travelaustralia #travelwithkids #learningontheroad #livingthedream #ourbiglap #westernaustralia
We took a drive to Cape Peron & Skipjack Point today. We saw heaps of Mantarays, sharks, turtles, crabs and a dugong. From the Lookout we even go to watch a shark chasing a stingray through the water. #ruivencampers #capeperon #skipjack #skipjackpoint #seewa #westernaustralia #sharkbay #seewesternaustralia #travelozwithkids #travelaustralia #learningontheroad #livingthedream #shark #mantaray
Monkey Mia 🐬 Today we got to be up close to wild dolphins. Cruz was so lucky to be picked to feed a one of them.

Warroora Station/14 Mile Beach- It doesn't get much better than this. What a fantastic camp spot. Camping right on the beach just metres from the turquoise water. Snorkelling & Fishing- nathan caught 2 reef sharks and many other fish. Heaps of big yellow crabs on the waters edge at night. All of the kids had fun chasing them around. And spent with Great company. πŸ’• Would have been good to stay longer but we have to move on. A must visit spot if you are ever in W.A. #ruivencampers #warroona #14milebeach #seewa #whitesand #bluewater #greatfishing #reefshark #kidsfishing #seeaustralia #seewa #livingthedream #mustsee #beachcamping #travelwithkids #yellowcrabs #catchingsharks #mustseewa
Sunset Quad Bike Trek- Coral Bay What a great start to our stay at Coral Bay. Last night we went on a Sunset Quad Bike Trek. All 4 of us had a blast! Cruz was squealing with joy as we rode over bumpy corrigations, and down the big sand dunes. Jet told us that it "was better than riding the camels" in Broome lol. Such a fun and different thing to do. #ruivencampers #coralbay #quadbikes #quadbiketrek #beachquadbiking #travelozwithkids #traveloz #livingthedream #coralbaywa #seewa #westernaustralia #sunsetquadbiking #seeaustralia #travelaustralia #ourbiglap
Fig Tree Cave- It was a mission to find the cave as it's really hidden. From the outside all you can see is the tip of the tree so from the road/ground it looks like a normal bush. Nathan was amazing climbing down and up the ladder with the boys clinging around him. Hercules!!! #ruivencampers #figtreecave #figtree #cave #westernaustralia #seewa #exmouthwa #travelwa #seewa #seeaustralia #travelaustralia #travelwithkids #learningontheroad #livingthedream
Marlin Fishing - Exmouth 🐟 Nathan was very lucky to be able to go Marlin fishing. They caught and released 3 Marlin. Nathan's one was a whopping 250kg and took 2.5hours to reel in. #ruivencampers #marlin #marlinfishing #exmouth #exmouthfishing #exmouthwa #fishingwa #seewa #ourbiglap
How cool is this....... There are wild Emu's roaming around the streets in Exmouth. They came up into our car. I had to turn the sound off the video as I was a little scared and said some bad wordsπŸ˜‚ #ruivencampers #exmouth #exmouthwa #emu #emuaustralia #wildemu #seewa #seeaustralia #australiawildlife #travelwithkids #learningontheroad #livingthedream
Red Dog- Dampier After watching the Red Dog movie the boys could not wait to see the Red Dog Statue in Dampier.

We have had the most incredible night. We are at 80 Mile beach and right on sunset we got to witness over 15 Flatback Sea Turtles come onto the beach and lay their eggs.

Thought some of you might be interested in our basic camping herb garden while we are travelling on the road. A bag of potting mix and herb seeds or plants. It is fantastic if you are staying in the one spot for a while, or easy to transport on the floor of the camper. The rosemary comes in very handy for things like roasts ect. #ruivencampers #campingherbgarden #herbgarden #travellingwithkids #tipsfortravelling #livingthedream #tips #livingontheroad #campingwithkids
Real Dinosaur Footprints- Gantheaume Point, Broome. The dinosaurs footprints are only visible at very low tide (under 1.3m) so it was a very early 4.30am wake up for us to search for the footprints. We had to climb over slippery wet rocks, searching, hoping we would find them before the tide came back in. #ruivencampers #broome #dinosaurfootprints #dinosaurfootprint #gantheaumepoint #realdinosaurfootprints #seewa #seewesternaustralia #seeaustralia #travelaustralia #travelwithkids #campingwithkids #kidslearningontheroad #learningontheroad #livingthedream #ourbiglap
One of the best parts of travelling is the amazing people you meet and hearing their amazing stories. And today we met one of those people- Ben. Ben is on an epic journey around Australia, cycling over 18,000km in 6months in a bid to raise awareness for mental health. And with all his busy schedule with radio interviews ect, Ben so kindly took the time to go for a ride with our boys. What an amazing man with a fantastic cause. Check out his page on Facebook and Instagram: Ride for Jase #ruivencampers #rideforjase #ridebikes #mentalillnessawareness #mentalilleness #greatcausetosupport
We love this saying! Our travelling holiday is the best thing we have done. It has brought us all closer as a family. We are all learning so much. The boys are loving be outdoors and exploring Australia. Such an amazing experience. We highly recommended anybody thinking about travelling with a family to definitely do it! #ruivencampers #livingthedream #travelozwithkids #travelaustralia #seeaustralia #learningontheroad #adventurebeforedementia #travelaustraliawithkids #family #familytravel
Cable Beach Sunset Camel Ride 🐫 🐫🐫🐫🐫🐫🐫🐫🐫🐫🐫🐫 A huge βœ”οΈ off the bucket list for me. This is something I have always wanted to do and I LOVED it! If you are ever in Cable Beach you must do a camel ride with Sundowner Camel Tours. These guys were so friendly and great to deal with from booking on the phone to the great staff walking alongside us on the ride. They even had one staff member there just to run up and down the beach to take photos for everyone riding. And as a massive bonus at the end of the ride all of the ladies received a pair of pearl earrings and everyone received a drink voucher for the local bar. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ #ruivencampers #camelrides #cablebeachbroome #cablebeachsunset #cablebeachcamels #seewa #seeaustralia #travelwa #travelwithkids #bucketlist #livingthedream #sunset #sunsetride #camel #sundownercameltours #sundownercameltours #ourbiglap

Cygnet Pearl Farm This is the place to visit if you are heading up to Cape Leveque. It is the only working pearl farm that is open to the public. Today we went on a tour and got to witness a live pearl harvest. On the inside of the oyster shell is the mother-of-pearl which is used for buttons, our money, makeup and pearl paint on cars. 😲 We got to try the pearl meat which is worth $200 a kilogram. Luckily we weren't big fans of the meatπŸ˜‚ #ruivencampers #cygnetbaypearlfarm #cygnetbaypearls #cygentbay #seewa #seeaustralia #travelwithkids #pearls #livingthedream #ourbiglap #learningontheroad #seewesternaustralia #broome
Trochus Hatchery Driving around One Arm Point today we found this hidden gem- Trochus Hatchery. We were taken around on a tour of all the different tanks that had all different marine life in them -fish, turtles, coral, sea snails and even a blue ringed Octopus that are being rehabilitated and eventually being released back into the ocean. We also learnt about the Trochus snail shells and how they are manufactured and made into buttons and a variety of other things. Our boys absolutely loved it here. And I was so happy to be so close to a turtle. πŸ’• Defiantly a place to check out if you are in Cape Leveque. #ruivencampers #shells #travelozwithkids #traveloz #onearmbay #hatchery #seewa #learningontheroad #livingthedream #seewesternaustralia #seeaustralia #livingthedream #campingwithkids #travelbroome #onearmpoint #onearmpointhatchery
James Price Point- put on insta This free camp is about 25minutes from Broome driving along a very corrugated road. We had the whole beach and camp area to ourselves. The boys loved doing a nudie run along the beach. πŸ˜‚ Hearing the waves crashing as you go to sleep at night and waking up to the magnificent views of the ocean. Great spot for the boys to run off their energy, Nathan to fish and me to relax, sunbake & read. The red dirt stains everything, so make sure you wear old clothes. #ruivencampers #jamespricepoint #seewa #seewesternaustralia #traveloz #travelozwithkids #camping #campinglife #livingthedream #travelwithkids #learningontheroad #livingthedream
Myalls Bore- Derby A massive 120 metre long trough. Built in the early 1900s, the impressive historic trough provided water for up to 1,000 head of cattle at a time. Early farmers drew water from the depths of the earth to fill the trough The windmill behind now pumps the water into the trough following the flow reduction in 1919. #ruivencampers #derby #derbywa #seewa #seeaustralia #travelozwithkids #traveloz #livingthedream #campingwithkids #westernaustralia #
Frostys Pool- Derby During the second world war troops were stationed in the Derby area. In 1944 Corporal Frost came up with the idea of building a swimming pool. With the help of two others it was built and although small, mainly due to the lack of suitable materials, was very popular. Filled with water from the bore it catered for officers during part of the day and other ranks for the balance of the day. The pool, though now in poor condition, is one of the few remaining reminders of those years when the troops were stationed in Derby. #ruivencampers #derbyshire #frostyspool #livingthedream #traveloz #travelozwithkids #seewa #westernaustralia #derbywa #livingthedream #travelwithkids #seeaustralia
Tunnel Creek- For someone who is petrified of flying things, I was really worried about going here as we were told there is bats in the tunnel 😱But I soldiered on, as we have been told Tunnel Creek is a MUST do. It's a pitch black Tunnel, so you need to bring tourches and in spots you are walking through water up to your waist. And I forgot to mention on the walk out we noticed there is Fresh Water Crocs in the waters we were walking in. I'm glad we did it. It was beautiful. #ruivencampers #tunnelcreek #bats #livingthedream #travelwithkids #ourbiglap2017 #traveloz #westernaustralia #seewa #campingwithkids
Bungle Bungles- The Domes & Cathedral Gorge. I'm so happy we got to see the Bungle Bungles. We thought we had missed out as a lot of places are closing for the wet season. I had seen and heard so much about the The Cathedral Gorge and it was one of the places I have been wanting to see our whole trip. Luckily we had an overcast day as I have been told it gets like an oven in between the gorges on a hot day. #ruivencampers #bunglebungles #bunglebunglenationalpark #thedomes #cathedralgorge #westernaustralia #seewa #livingthedream #travelozwithkids #ourbiglap2017 #campingwithkids #campingwithkidswa
