    Horizons Unlimited Perth Event

    The event is taking place from Friday 18th October to Sunday 20th October 2013 at Gloucester Lodge in Yanchep National Park, Perth. The lodge is situated in the tranquil surrounds of Yanchep National Park and is convenient proximity to Perth.
    We are organising an exciting range of inspirational speakers and educational workshops.
    Arrive early on the Friday evening and make it a great weekend! (extra camp site fees apply for Friday night). However the official program will not commence until the Saturday morning.
    As well as hearing inspiring stories of overlanding adventures from around the world, you'll get the low-down on preparing for your journey, navigation, first-aid, photography, filming and a host of other essential topics. Whatever your past experience or future plans may be, there's something for everyone.
    We are excited to announce that the founders of Horizons Unlimited, Grant and Susan Johnson, will be joining us for our first meeting.

    More detailed schedule will be posted closer to the event.
