'We finally feel free': The families giving it all up for life on the road
It's long been grey nomads who dominate our highways as they head out to enjoy retirement - but now, younger families are bucking the trend and taking to the open road themselves.
The Knaggs family is one of them - giving up the perfect home life to explore Australia.
"We are selling everything we own and we finally feel free, and we are going to hit the road with our kids," mum Elly Knaggs told A Current Affair.
"I don't want to have the white picket fence and the house anymore."
She and husband Blair are selling the last of their possessions before taking their kids William, Matilda and Audrey around Australia.
To date, the longest they've ever camped is for three weeks, and now, they're setting off indefinitely.
They plan to home-school the children, while Elly will pick up work as a first aid nurse along the way.
Young couple Ben and Emily Kendall have also felt the call of the open road.
They both quit their jobs 12 months ago and taken their two pups across the southern half of Australia.
The couple even worked on a Northern Territory station for some extra cash.
"You can work the rest of your life, but something like this, it's once a lifetime," Emily said.
"The biggest expense is diesel, but apart from that, you really don't need a lot, like we do a lot of free camping."
They've still got the top half of Australia to do, but are in no rush at the moment.
And the Knaggs and the Kendalls both agreed that for others considering a trip, the best thing they could do was do it.
"As for regrets - not a single one," Emily said.
