The hilarious family from An Amazing Australian Road Trip is back – this time they're going camping!

We’re travelling from Melbourne on a camping trip east,
so Aunty can paint a fantastical beast.


The family from An Amazing Australian Road Trip is off on a camping trip in search of a little-seen Australian beast for Aunty to paint. Encountering all manner of Australian animals, the right one is proving hard to find, and they’re starting to wonder if the creature even exists.

About the Author
