We enjoyed our stop in Rutherglen, having the lake just opposite our site has been delightful.  Our first stop on Monday was to order a hamper from The Pickled Sisters in Wahgunyah, to be picked up on Wednesday (they are closed on Tuesdays).  On Tuesday we went for a drive through Chiltern Mt Pilot National […]

A lot has happened since our last blog. Again, we found another brilliant picnic area at Kianniny Bay.   Watched boats coming in from rough seas, enjoyed two families watching their children playing in the creek, then we were engrossed in their cricket game, without making them feel too conspicuous!  Te scenery along the East […]

We had to spend two days confined to the van because of the shocking weather.  We were lucky not to experience the strong winds that the coast, further north suffered, but the rain was amazing.  100mms at least.  No camp kitchen facilities here. We spent several days there, drying everything out and enjoying the lovely […]

Strange name, but a great location – we are camped next to the estuary, with a view to the ocean.  No fires unfortunately, but fabulous septic toilets, cold showers and only about 10 kms from Moruya. We have been around our camp most days as we’ve both got the reading bug.  Russ has walked to […]

We are still at Murramarang Resort and have settled in, what seems like, for good.  We have extended our stay twice, mainly because of the school holidays, but there is everything we want here. The weather has been wonderful, with temperatures in the twenties and almost thirty yesterday.  Some days we have just stayed around […]

I’ve since learnt that Ap is App – coming into this new age world has a few challenges for me!! Most of NSW, Melbourne and Tasmania has felt the strength of Mother Nature over the last few days and our experience was mostly severe, continuing, cold wind gusts, which made the next two days quite […]

Four days into the holiday and our first report – we are relaxing in our old age!! Stayed at Lake King Caravan Park at Eagle Point, a place we have been to several times.  Only a few powered sites, facing the beautiful lakes, but just when you are thinking that nothing changes, we were hit […]

On Monday we went on a lunch cruise on the Paddle Steamer Emmylou.  The weather was perfect, lots of winter sun with a few clouds to cool you down from time to time.  It was soooo relaxing.  The rhythmic slap of the paddles in the background while we sat at the back of the boat […]

Last night, we were treated to a wonderful display of fireworks.  A party close to the park made campers emerge from their vans to see a spectacular sight. The weather today has been fantastic, although cold at night.  Woke to the sound of little lorikeets, corellas, kookaburras to name a few.  Also enjoyed the wonderful […]

Unfortunately we have to be in Melbourne on August 6th for Russ to have an operation, bloody prostate!  This means we will miss our usual winter sojourn to various places in Australia.  So, as we have a few days to fill in, we decided to head to Echuca. We’ve been here many times before and love […]
