thanks! i think we'll end up taking a normal tent for the practical side and a hammock that'll fold up into our backpacks for whenever we are around trees. we're definitely sold on the idea of hammock camping.
we're hoping to avoid some of the rains in the north by starting in tasmania in january then back up to victoria. we'll go clockwise around the country ending in sydney in november. i'll be checking the google map as we move!
