About

From the Footpath has stories, pictures and movie clips from the travels of a creative Filmic and an organised Techo, with supporting extras, that feature everyday Australians, historic and natural places and Australians at work and play –  as viewed from the footpath by those walkers, cyclists and caravanners.  Travelling in a caravan around this wide brown land costs very little – and that is really cool.
The creative Filmic is a former graphic lithographer, aspirational semi professional photographer and a 20 year film preservation officer in Australia’s National Film and Sound Archive.

The logistical support vehicles are an 2012 Isuzu DMax Ute and 2014 Jayco StarCraft 18.55-3 caravan.

Our previous caravan rig, which gave us 20,000km of trouble free travel was a Jayco Expanda 14.44-3.  Combo Waterhole road - DMax and Expanda 04 cropped

 

Currently,  June 2016,  we have completed 47 Caravan Adventures including

  • week long trips to many NSW regional towns  including Boorowa, Dubbo, Wagga Wagga, Young, Cowra, Bathurst, Orange, Albury, Cootamundra, Junee and Gundagai
  • and similar trips to Victorian towns of Beechworth, Wangaratta, Wodonga
  • Surf’n’Sun trips to the Australia’s East Coast town of Kiama, Shoalhaven Heads, Greenwell Point, Eden, Lakes Entrance
  • a circuit around far western Queensland with a trip in 4WD truck to the Tip of Cape York (leaving or van and ute safely in Cairns)
  • Following the Kidman Way from Victoria to Bourke
  • plus numerous trips to the best bushland CBD caravan park in Australia – Lane Cove River Tourist Park in Sydney

We like to “travel slowly” , stay in places a lot longer than most caravanners would and really get to see and appreciate our small Australian towns – they have a lot to offer a photographer and traveller in a rich history and heritage, unique natural features,  many have great restaurants with fresh local produce, there is always a friendly pub with someone to tell tales who likes their photo taken and of course most have reasonably priced, character filled caravan parks within walking distance to town centres.  Nearly every country town has a golf course that doesn’t mind a couple of hackers playing a round, even if those players don’t deserve to be photographed for playing so badly.
