"Awesome adventure . . . Loved every minute of The Big Lap Series!"


"AMAZING!!!! Loved every minute."


"Just watching the last episode . . . wish there was more!"


The Big Lap Series is the incredible true story of the Baile family's epic 16 month around Australia road trip adventure that has already inspired thousands of people to chase their dreams of travel and adventure.

Overcoming seemingly endless obstacles and road blocks, Steve and Jen Baile finally make it to the start line and set out to discover the REAL Australia with their young daughters Savanna and Sara.

What follows is a truly epic family adventure that will take you from the Snowy Mountains to the Kimberley, from Cape York to the Tasmanian High Country and everywhere in between.

Suffering numerous setbacks along the way including rolling their 4WD and camper trailer in the Snowy Mountains and breaking down in the Queensland outback for 3 days, the Baile's overcome the challenges and push on.

The end result is The Big Lap Series, 10 episodes of genuine Aussie road trip adventure that will leave you feeling inspired and hungry for more.

The Big Lap Series is now available online or as a 3 disc set on either DVD or HD Bluray format.

Our Extreme Challenge

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.

"Finished watching at 2am this morning, it's so addictive! We have so many 4WD DVD's but nothing like The Big Lap. What an epic journey guys."


"I think you guys are amazing just tackling the journey with the rugrats. Well done Jen and Steve."


“We've 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.”


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

"Bought this for Hubby for his birthday. WARNING: it's addictive!!!!"


"We love your DVDs too! Our 4-year-old's fave...even before the Wiggles!"


But 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!

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.

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.

“Received the DVD set 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.”


Come along with us on the Adventure

When you watch The Big Lap Series you'll 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 will 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 Series 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 worked hard to make sure we captured the experience as authentically as possible and we are proud to now share it with you in this 10 episode (8 hours) series.

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

“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.”
