Yes, from mid nineties onward, forget about it, our cities have become congested hellholes.

In the early 80's I hitchhiked from Sydney to the northern tip of the Cape York peninsula (or at least where the road ended then), and back. It was fabulous. Years later I got to spend a couple months in NZ, but not with my finger stuck out. I'd love to make another trip with my wife before adventure travel times out for us. I'm thinking south and western Aus.

Too bad in the early 90's Brisbane and Mt Isa were the only places I really liked. Although I never mad it to Pearth

You only need to show them your vac passport which we'll never need and are illegal now in many states but which the feds will soon require regardless of what they say.

Had a trip all planned for 2020 in NZ. Deposit paid, tickets paid, hotel accommodations paid. COVID changed all. Have been speaking to outfitter and with hope will come to fruition in July 2022. If not, Spain for Ibex. NZ is closed due to fear of covid. Fear of who knows what. Will keep posting. MTG

Luckily you didn't try and head south from Sydney, Ivan Milat was out and about giving hitch hikers a rough time around about then.

Nope, Milat wasn't a factor until the late 80's.

That's the period from which they've been able to find bodies and link murders with Milat but theres a bunch of unsolved missing backpackers in the region starting in the early 70s. Milat was acquitted for a double rape of 2 hitchhikers in 1971.

After breakup with his wife during the mid 80s he seemed to go ballistic but had his technique down pat by that stage.

Nah...kiwis and Indians beat them to it.


Come on now. You know that any kiwis that go to live in Oz raise the IQ of both countries. Invariably and sadly though they eventually come back to God's own country and the intelligence quotient is reversed. Please encourage them to stay with you lot. You can have Ardern as well along with her commie pals.
