A Real Adventure to the ‘Extremes’ of Australia

Do you dream about escaping the rat race for a year or two to see the REAL Australia?

Another perfect sunset at Cobourg Peninsula, NT

We are the Baile family . . . Steve, Jen, Savanna & Sara and just like you we are passionate about spending time exploring this amazing home we call Australia.

Join us in The Big Lap as we leave behind our friends and family and the city life and head for the horizon on our epic 16 month adventure around Australia.

If you love camping, road trips and adventure, whether it’s for long weekends, school holidays or even the whole lap of Australia like us then you’re going to love The Big Lap.

We’re a regular family just like you who wanted to do something a bit different (and probably a bit crazy) and share it with the world. For years we dreamed of leaving the rat race behind and having a really big adventure and filming it all so we could share it with you.

There are plenty of travel shows on TV but none like The Big Lap.

We filmed the 10 episode series over 2 years including the planning and preparation for the trip and the challenges of just getting to the start line, then right through the entire trip including the highs and lows, the dramas and the lessons we learn’t along the way.

As an added challenge, we set ourselves the goal of reaching the ‘extremes’ of Australia . . . that’s the northern tip at Cape York, the southern tip at Wilsons Promontory, the western tip at Steep Point, the eastern at Cape Byron, the exact centre near Alice Springs and even the highest point on Mt Kosciuszko.

This challenge took us through every state and territory in Australia and along some of our remotest and toughest roads and tracks.

Every state. Every territory. Every extreme!

“We have just finished watching your DVD’s and they were awesome, loved them all. Thanks heaps for sharing your adventures with us. Even our kids loved it.”

Kylie Miles

Things don’t always go to plan . . .

Of course with an adventure on this scale things can go wrong and we had our share of dramas, including a couple of vehicle rollovers, a broken camper trailer, being stranded in the outback with a collapsed wheel bearing on our Landcruiser and the ever present challenge of travelling on a very tight budget.

We actually ran out of money along the way and had to stop and work out a way to make some extra cash so we could keep going (see this in episode 6).

Despite the challenges, our mission from the very start was to capture the entire experience on film so that we could make The Big Lap series and share it with other fellow travel lovers.

Of course not everyone who watches the series is planning to sell up, pack up and take off around Australia for a year or two, but if you share our passion for exploring remote and spectacular destinations and discovering new places then you’re going to fall in love with The Big Lap.

“Wow, we LOVE your DVDs. Thanks so much for sharing your trip with us, we really felt like we were tackling it with you . . . we particularly liked the attention to every little detail, whether it was preparing meals, reading maps, shaking sand out of ones undies, or hiking to the most beautiful areas, these details made it so real. We are in awe of your decision.”

Penelope Risbey Turner

Come along with us on the Adventure

When we decided to make the film series, we wanted to make it in a way that you would feel like you were there with us along the way sharing the experience, so that even if your own 'Big Lap' is still a dream for sometime in the future, at least you can have a taste of what it would be like.

Best of all, by watching The Big Lap you’ll get ideas of places to go for shorter trips and what to expect along the way and when you get there.

  • What’s it like driving up to Cape York?
  • What’s it like staying at El Questro in the Kimberley?
  • What does the Tanami Road look like?
  • How do you travel long distances with young children on board?
  • How tough is it to drive the Gibb River Road?

Many TV shows do a great job of highlighting beautiful destinations, but celebrities flying in for 12 hours and having the red carpet treatment for the camera isn’t really something that any of us can relate to.

In The Big Lap our experience is much more authentic from the perspective of travellers just like you, so you’ll get a genuine sense of what to expect when planning your own adventures. We didn’t have a big budget or big sponsors expecting us to spend the whole time ‘spruiking’ their product.

We didn’t even have a crew!

But that’s not to say we haven’t been able to make a great film series. We invested in the right equipment and worked hard to make sure we captured the experience as authentically as possible - in fact we shot over 200 hours of footage which was ultimately edited down to the final 10 episode (8 hours) series.

“Received the DVD on Friday – the misses and I thought we would watch it over a few days. Well we put the first disk in Saturday midday and could not contain ourselves, watched all 3 disks on the Saturday – when friends rang we said we weren’t home as we didn’t want to miss a minute! Best Aussie adventure movie I have ever watched, a down to earth Aussie family living the dream.”

Max Thorbjornsen

We didn’t set out to make a ‘how to’ kind of show but you’ll definitely pick up plenty of tips and tricks by watching us. In nearly a year and a half on the road we learn a lot and share as much as we can through the series.

  • How to make damper without a camp oven
  • How to fix a flat tyre
  • How to build a kitchen for the camper trailer
  • What to do when you break down in the outback
  • What gear to take and what to leave behind

The Big Lap is for everyone who loves getting out and exploring Australia’s remote and spectacular places

"G’day Steve and Jen, just received the Big Lap DVD, what a ripper, real down to earth people you are. You both have that mischievous/cheekiness and a liking for the simple things like a VB beer, none of the political correct stuff, the kids were terrific, they would have learnt heaps on the trip, good on you and all the best for the future."
