Our good Dutch friends Dirk & Trudy Retger have sent us a message to say that they have completed their 3-month, 19,000km journey around Australia in their Model T Ford. Starting and finishing in Brisbane.

On July 18th, 2018, the pair, along with their support vehicle traveled the last few kilometres into Brisbane. They will spend a week packing everything up for transport home to the Netherlands and then head off themselves.
