WorldNomads is looking for seven teams of Van-Tastic Adventurers to travel across Australia on a six-week road trip of a lifetime. Each team will blog, share photos and create audio and video shows that will be showcased around the world … including right here on the Indie Travel Podcast.

Today, we’re speaking with Amanda Byrne from WorldNomads; Peter Burke from Travellers Auto Barn; and Amanda Pressner of the Lost Girls about her travels in Australia in the WorldNomads van.

The skinny…

You’ll be flown to Australia to explore your favourite piece of the country in a fully loaded campervan, with fuel money, an action-packed itinerary and all the gear you’ll need to share your adventure through videos, stories and photos.

You can choose where you want to go, what you want to do and, with heaps of adventurous activities thrown in for free, you’ll have lots of stories to make a mini video documentary of your adventure. The team with the most popular video will win $10,000 cash and flights from Virgin Blue.

The long story…

…heaps of laughs and lots of practical information…

Today’s podcast is a weaving together of three interviews from people who really enjoy travelling in Australia. Amanda tells us everything we can do on the East Coast; Peter fills us in with safety information … especially regarding kangaroos at dawn and dusk and Amanda tells us what it’s like to crash a van belonging to an insurance company.

There’s heaps of laughs and lots of practical information for people planning an Aussie adventure or, more specifically, wanting some inside knowledge on their Vantastic application.
