It was great to see it again. Bouncing Stone is bizarre, there were about a dozen of us on the beach so the stones were flying about, lucky nobody got their eye taken out!

One of the reasons I'm pssed off is that I should be in Melbourne (the plan is always to spend Dec/Jan/Feb there). Whether or not I'd ride my Postie the 1900 miles to FNQ is a moot point but my son has a camper and it fits in the back. He also rides and next time is taking me to Southend in SA, I live in Southend on Sea in Essex. :D

Part 36: Australia / 3

Riding the postiebikes on the typical red dirtroads, the biggest Bauxite mine in the world and awesome dronefootage of the real outback of Australia.
Enjoy the video!

Love the drone footage! It's hard for me to take in the sheer scale and distances involved in Australia as a lifelong inhabitant of this small island in the north atlantic! Makes a nice change to watch after our short wet winter days. Live the dream!

I was also impressed with the drone views. I'd be tempted to investigate using one out there as well but not here because my house is less than a mile from an airport.

Thanks guys,
Drone footage does make it "special" when you can show the scenery from a different point of view.
It takes a hell of a lot of time to do on the way but its well worth it.
In the next video's shots were made from two angles while I was crossing a stream on the Honda, drone in the air and a camera on the tripod on the floor.

Part 37: Australia / 4

Proper off road with the postie bike. Crossing creeks, loose sand and struggling to keep the bike upright.
And also in this video great dronefootage...
