  1. What is the definition of “around Australia”? EG Are specific cities to be covered? Do they all need to be covered in one trip? How many of the listed trips have been to Alice Springs? Hobart? Not many I’m guessing. I am from VIC and currently in the Kimberley after passing through SA and NT. I’ll return via Perth. Having already been to all capitals except Perth I consider myself to have been “around Australia” once I get home.
