Adventurous couple Bohannah, 27, and Tye Gerritsen, 30, travel around Australia with their children: four-year-old Indiana, two-year-old Archer, and seven-month-old baby.

Giving up the rat race to take a tour of Australia with children in tow is something many parents dream of.

The couple of adventurers Bohannah, 27, and Tye Gerritsen, 30, have managed to fulfill that dream of traveling with their young without making spontaneous sacrifices to make their road trip a reality.

The couple decided to temporarily move away from their suburban lifestyle and explore the country with their three young children: four-year-old Indiana, two-year-old Archer and seven-month-old Olive, in a retro caravan.

Traveling wherever the sun takes them, the young family of five, from Perth Hills in Western Australia, has been living in a cozy 1981 Spaceline caravan called "Sunny & # 39; after embarking on your vacation in July.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Bohannah's mother revealed what it really is to live on the road with her children and the reality behind her seemingly perfect snapshots.

Upon finding a vehicle to meet their young family on the road, the couple, who documents their trip through Instagram, bought the second-hand caravan for $ 5,400.

"Then we spent another $ 3,000 on the installation of electric brakes on the car for the caravan, as well as replacing old taillights with new ones and electrical wiring." We also needed a new refrigerator for the truck that cost $ 1,400.

For the car, we got a bar for the bull for $ 2,700, a CB radio, spotlights for $ 550 and a Waeco fridge / freezer for $ 650.

Seven weeks after their trip, the couple seems to have their children under control at the wheel, but admit they have faced challenges.

"The children are incredibly resilient and surprise us in the best possible way, their routine has been completely thrown out the window and every day we are doing something new, but they have adapted so well," explained Bohannah.

"The biggest juggling game is to explore with three children on foot, I always use Olive in a baby carrier, but the other two also love to wear them, so there is often a discussion among the kids about who will be the other baby carrier.

"Often, Tye takes Archer and he has Indiana riding on his shoulders, we always get the comments of" gees you got it full full "from everyone who sees us go by.

"Until now there have been days that are unbearably hot, wet, we have been covered in red earth and the cute costumes of the children have been stained with WD40, a lubricant spray when the husband was fixing the caravan door because they blocked us, She said.

"We have stopped on the side of the road on numerous occasions to check the bearings of the caravan's wheels and we have even stopped once to find that the rear panel of the van was hanging.

"I have lost count of the number of poop explosions that Olive has made in her car seat and how often we had to wash it, and every day we set ourselves a new challenge that always keeps things nice and interesting."

"At this moment our biggest cost is fuel, the last six weeks have cost us $ 3,100 in fuel alone," said Bohannah.

"Caravan parks can also cost around $ 58 per night, depending on where you are, so we have downloaded the Wiki Camps application and are trying to be more aware of the costs where we choose to stay now.

"We make a weekly grocery store, but generally we try to buy fresh local products from markets or roadside stalls, and we are conscious of not spending a lot of money on eating out or on material things."

So, what have they packaged in their humble caravan?

& # 39; Beans: we are lucky that children love all kinds of beans; kidney, chickpeas, black beans, lentils, we have a big stash since they make really easy recipes, especially if we have little food, "said Bohannah.

& # 39; Coloring Books: We do not have television and rarely use the iPad, so coloring has been the best way to keep children occupied while we cook or let Olive rest and we need children to be busy & # 39; .

The family has already logged more than 11,000 kilometers in just seven weeks on their three-month trip.

"Tye has taken her extended service license so we have enough time to see only half of our beautiful country," Bohannah said, adding that her husband has a round trip flight.

"We have until mid-October for Tye to return to work, so we will spend the next few weeks in Queensland and New South Wales before returning home.

"We are just outside of Cairns at this time and we love the feeling of tranquility in the jungle, I would really love to take the children to New Zealand and take a trip around the South Island like we did before having children, I also have my eyes on Spain, but we'll see. "

The couple was inspired to travel with their children after falling in love with New Zealand before forming a family.

"Tye and I have always loved doing road trips, either on short trips to the southwest or driving on the South Island in New Zealand," said Bohannah.

"When we started our family, road trips continued and the idea of ​​traveling through Australia was something we were considering.

"When we got pregnant with Olive, the idea receded a bit, but a few months ago it reappeared in our thoughts, so I took the idea and ran with it.

"We would have loved to have left for longer, but we did not want to get away from the family any longer with Olive still so young."

For anyone willing to go on a trip with their children, Bohannah said, "You do not have to sell your whole house to buy a truck."

"This has been a totally new experience for us, since we are not familiar with caravan parks or parks and, in fact, we have never towed a caravan before," he said.

"We learn new things every day and, no doubt, it's getting easier as we gain more knowledge about towing and traveling.

"You do not have to sell your whole house to buy a van, Sunny does not cost much (it needs a bit to fix it) but it has been a wonderful little vehicle to take us where we want to go.

"If you're not in a position to buy, you can always rent a van and hit the road, for a month, or three, or six.

"The experience is priceless and it will be the best decision you have made, exploring with children is probably 90% more challenging, but whenever it is safe we ​​always do it in large quantity.

"There are many waterfalls, holes for swimming and more off the beaten track and sometimes we think to ourselves" we will miss this ", but then we remember that we will probably never see it again, so we added the extra effort and it's always worth it.

"Even if it means that our legs feel that they are going to fall from carrying an additional 40 kilos of children's weight to more than 30 degrees of temperature."
