"Best of luck with the trip Graham and achieving something I never have - taking children!"

Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE Adventurer

"Everyone here at Leicester City would like to wish Graham, Eirene and their family all the best for this epic journey. There will no doubt be plenty of ups and downs on the way - but I am sure you will stay strong and reach your destination. It's a fantastic cause and one that is obviously very close to my heart. Good luck and safe journey”

Ian Holloway

Leicester City Manager

“A journey of flight is as old and primeval as life itself.  But a journey of rescue is something uniquely Human.  Good Luck Graham, Eirene and the crew, with your amazing journey, I know you’ll make it”

“Wishing you all the luck in the world on your mad trip—you will certainly feel the miles. You can hear it now—”Dad, are we nearly there yet?” - well hum no! Wrap fish in foil and cook it on the engine bloke and don’t drink the water. And remember eat marmite and the mozzies won’t bother you. Best wishes”

The Journey         

Driving to Australia: On 1st May 2008 Graham (37) and Eirene (37) Naismith, together with their 3 children Hannah (6), Emily (4) and Abigail (1) embarked on a 30,000 mile charity drive from Purley near Croydon to Cairns, the north east tip of Australia.

Their journey took them through Europe into the Ukraine, south west Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China (Olympics!), Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and onto Perth in Western Australia (not driving this bit). The final leg saw them follow a 13,500 mile route completely around the circumference of Australia before arriving back home on the 15th February 2009.

The trip aims to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support  with all donations going in their entirety to the charity—please spare a couple of pounds and click on the link on the left.
