"Today marks 100 days on the road travelling Australia," they posted to Facebook.

The family of six with two teenagers have travelled 14577 kilometres in those 100 days.

"We left Brisbane at the beginning of July and we are currently camped on a beach on the Dampier Peninsula."

That's about 175 kilometres north of Broome in Western Australia.

"With the six of us and limited space in our home on wheels not every day is harmonious," they posted.

"We are still learning about each other every day and adapting to our current travelling situation. It's just like normal home life but in some wonderful locations.

"We have met some amazing characters, families and fellow travellers on the road.

"We travelled the entire Northern Territory with a legendary family we met at the Burdekin Cane Farm.

"It's these friendships created on the road and the memories being made that make all the sacrifices well worth it."
