Welcome to WOT!

Welcome to The Williams Oz Travels (WOT!) website

The first rule of WOT! club is…  every time you see ‘WOT!’, you have to shout it out loudly, rather than reading it in your head. Trust us, it will make you feel great! (and it’s good marketing for our site to make sure everyone near you hears about it 😊)

The Williams Oz Travels-final1-01

We’re a young family of four and we’re travelling around Australia for more than 3 months at the start of 2018. This site will explain our journey and we hope to inspire you to take a big step to taking on a big adventure of your own. We’ll hope to provide some useful hints and tips to help you along the way.

Fun fact #1 – The site was originally called ‘The Williams Australian Travels’. But Catherine didn’t think that the acronym was appropriate for a family-friendly blog


Are you a ‘WOT!’ virgin?

If it’s your first time here, then get to know us a bit better by heading over to our Why?, What? and Who? pages. There you’ll find out why we’re writing a blog, what we’re planning to cover and who we are.
