G’day! I’m Steve, but you can call me Steve.

This blog sets out to answer the one question that has baffled scientists since the dawn of time;

“What IS a Browne Town?”

I am Steve Browne, creator of The Browne Town and former McDonald’s employee of the week.

I have 12 dreams, 7 holes and 0 idea what I’m doing with my life. If you’re here, chances are you’re wasting your life as well. Let’s go on pretending that you aren’t though, for the time being.


I solemly swear that I’m (up to) no good… at Photoshop

This is simply a platform for me to share knowledge (or lack thereof).

That could come in the form of a travel guide to a destination I have been to, a comparison of competing products, a review of something I have purchased, or something that I myself have struggled to find information on and feel it is worth sharing.

Unlike most people, I enjoy humour. I also enjoy fixing things, or at least taking the credit for having done so. I like learning new things, sometimes even enjoying doing hours of research. These hours of research may prove useful to others.

Originally I wanted to create a travel blog about my adventures swimming through Mt. Everest, or climbing the Amazon Jungle. I see myself as somewhat of a great explorer or pioneer, like Christopher Colombus and Cap’n Crunch before me.

Now though, the idea is just to share information in general, I guess there will still be travel stuff here but it will vary. Use the menu up the top to navigate. I have tried to sort things into logical categories.

I won’t ask you to join my newsletter, because I hate those annoying pop-ups … and also I don’t have time to write a newsletter.


I also have my Youtube channel where I release videos related to all of the stuff you see here. In fact there’s more content there then there is in this blog.

About Me

If I look somewhat untrustworthy to you, you’re probably not far from the truth. I’d steal your fancy cutlery in a heartbeat.

Even if you just want to wish me a belated happy birthday or tell me that you found your car keys.

Unlike most people, I like to travel.

If you want to read about it then you’ve come to the right place. I have been to some places and not written up anything about them because it was either before I started the blog, or I don’t feel like I spent enough time there to justify writing a travel guide.

But the rest of it you can find below.

Cars & Camping


During COVID as my international travel was rudely interrupted, I looked inward towards more local travel.

Throughout the process I ended up purchasing a 4WD, which I then spent the next two and a half years building into a touring vehicle to one day travel around Australia.

In here are some of the results of my research as well as documenting what I did to the car and sharing experiences and product reviews as I go.
