Coffs and mid north coast in Jan
Simpson with boys in May
If I can make it work, Fraser in September

Few more short term trips in between but these are my big ones
Fraser in september is awesome, we've already locked in three weeks in september, trips to straddie and moreton every 4-6 weeks with the fishing club before then, will try and fit in a couple of long weekends exploring somewhere new, enjoyed northern nsw last time, still lots more to do there.
You guys have got some great trips planned!!
I'm flat out getting SWMBO agreeing to day run down to 3 bears near Margaret River. Shes preggers see, and is worried about the baby. Fair enough I say, but i drive to the prevailing conditions. Including a pregnancy! :)

Planning do trip to WA Goldfields, Juardi Station, Mt Elvire station, Credo station in March, Murchison in may, Gibb river road in July, and thinking about doing the telegraph track from Norseman to the Eyre highway some time after that. A lot planned, I hope to complete it all, but depends on things I cant always control, work roster and the missus.
