About

My name is Anthony, that’s the ant in rufant. I’ve always liked adventure of many different sorts. These days it’s mostly exploring Australia by 4×4, where I dragged my long suffering partner Naomi to from England, and now drag her around remote and dusty parts of the land. She mostly loves it, I think!

I started documenting these travels in a bit more detail the last few years, and thought it was time I had somewhere to keep and share those experiences. So hopefully you enjoy some of the tales on this site, feel free to leave a comment if you like. There are many more stories yet to write and also new ones planned for the future, plus a bit of variety with some non 4×4 adventures, general motoring and also foodie type stuff in time.

I’m also on Instagram.
