The Henderson’s Story
Sean and Kylie have been together for over 18yrs and have been dreaming of doing the Big Around Australia trip for at least 15 of these. After spending many years waiting tables, gigging in pubs, chipping cotton, selling cheese, processing photos, driving tractors and Managing Hotels they are finally about to realise this dream in the most adventurous of ways. On a Car Based Motor tricycle (Trike) with their entire family.
'The Big Things' part of this dream began in April 1993 when Sean Proposed to Kylie over a couple of super sundaes and a west coast cooler at The Big Pineapple, Woombye, SE Queensland. Taking the odd photo with these Big Aussie Landmarks kept this fascination alive and since having two boys Sam (10) and Josh (9) the trip around Australia began to evolve into The Big Things Tour of OZ.
All of us have not ventured too far in our lives so this trip really is a BIG thing in more than one way. Kylie, Sam and Josh have been to QLD, NSW and ACT. Sean adds Vic to his list as well, as for overseas we would hope the Big Things Tour OS is something for the future.
All in all this trip is really BIG for us…..Its been many years in the dream pipe, and 2011 has brought about oppotunity to realise this dream in the craziest of ways. 93 days on a trike travelling this amazing country, camping in tents filming the entire journey, visiting over 100 Big Things and riding over 20000km.
Now that we are home it's just amazing to know we have achieved something that started as a humble dream and now has become a journey of inspiration for ourselves and many others. We have been inspired by the countless number of wonderful people in this country and we hope to have inspired others to make step out and see the beauty in the world around them. Have no time, no money...Check out your own back yard, it's amazing whats out there.
BIG smiles, BIG love
