The Misadventures of the Travelling Quirkus

Ever wanted to take to the open road? Ever attempted that with kids? The Quirkus did. It was not pretty.

Forget the house and the quarter-acre block. This is one family’s hilarious attempt to achieve the new Great Australian Dream – a road trip through the great southern land with kids. Experience the twists and turns of family life on the road with The Ideas Man, Bionic Woman, The Swagman, Chipmunk and Princess Contrary. Take or leave their travel tips and get educated on Australia’s lesser known, but quirkier, history, people and places. Most importantly, enjoy. You are about to embark on a true tale only fiction could top.

‘I’ve never laughed so hard or so often reading a book before. It’s still so hard to believe this was no fictitious tale. Before I could even finish I had a queue of family and friends waiting to steal the book once I was done.’

Amy Murphy, Digital Editor, Outback Traveller Magazine.

It’s hard not to love the honest, raw and remarkable similarities this delightfully rambunctious family have to the characters in our own families. A refreshingly funny story of a family’s road trip into the Australian outback that’s packed with chaos, craziness and the perfect amount of quirkiness.’

Corinne Brown, Digital Editor – Child Mags. 

Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or a free-spirited traveller, if you have experienced the chaos of family The Misadventures of the Travelling Quirkus will entertain you.
