After travelling south for two long days, staying at St George the first night, then the second night at  Narrabri, we then headed for Coolah and booked in for two nights.  Coolah was a nice little park, with happy hour around a blazing fire, lit in a huge mining drum.  This meant we had a […]

The weather has completely changed.  Extremely strong winds and freezing cold, with rain expected.  This led us to decide on a restaurant for lunch, so we chose Taste Canowindra, a place promoting regional foods and wine.  We were greeted in a very strange way, by a very abrupt owner, but stayed and tasted a couple […]

It’s been a while since our last post, but we have travelled quite a distance, often without 3G.  We had a great final night at Mt Beauty having a spread of anti-pasta followed by lamb and chicken souvlakis. The drive up Kiewa Valley Highway was beautiful.  Victoria is so green at the moment and the […]

We are enjoying the last day of our eight day stay at Mount Beauty.  It has been great here, catching up with some old, very good friends, a bit like a family re-union, and one which we have done every year since 1973.  On the way here we stopped at Nug Nug, a small camping […]

We are now in Mt Beauty for 8 days and back in 3G territory.  After Beechworth we spent 4 enjoyable days in Eldorado, very quiet caravan park with lots of trees, very different to when we last camped here in 1976.  We visited the large dredge that worked Reedy Creek from 1934 to 1954.  It […]

Arrived in Beechworth on Saturday, after seeing Heath in the morning, to give him his early Christmas and birthday present – a skateboard, plus protective gear. Beechworth is NE of Melbourne, one hour from Albury and Wangaratta.  Ya-Itma-Thang, the indigenous clan who were the first people to occupy Beechworth until the 1850s, when over 5000 […]

This blog will be a condensed overview of the last few days, but we just HAVE to do it. First stop was at Wangaratta, where we were lured to a caravan park, on the banks of the Ovens River.  Little did we know, that if we’d been a week earlier, the river would have been […]

Headed North to Bridport, through roads that climbed and wound their way through the most stunning Myrtle rainforests, until Scottsdale, where the road straightened out, and we arrived at Tassie’s Rosebud equivalent foreshore camping, named Bridport.  This place would be buzzing at Christmas and Easter and every public holiday and we have a site in […]

Before we left Freycinet National Park, we visited Friendly Beaches.  There is a listed walk there that you can take for from 5 minutes to 5 hours – you can guess which one we chose!  Another beautiful beach – what can we say – this is an amazing place. Some creative kids (or old kid), […]

Stayed for two nights at Seven Mile Beach caravan park – a bit disappointing as it’s located right in the middle of a suburb and quite a way from the beach. One highlight was taking a shuttle bus to Salamanca market.  The bus visited several caravan parks, collecting passengers and took us up to a […]
