The Jonesys are a modern-day family of adventurers trying to settle down different and build a life of adventure. Justin, Lauren and their daughter Morgan, The Jonesys, are pioneers for settling down differently and merging an adventurous life with a family life. The family set out on an expedition to prove that adventure doesn't have to stop where family begins. With their one-year-old daughter Morgan, Lauren and Justin walked 1800km on a self-supported expedition from the centre of Australia to the south coast proving family can not only co-exist, but thrive with adventure.
