On another beautiful sunny mild day I set off for Hornsby to see their water tank, a fair part of the journey was on Pennant Hills Road again, but no B-Doubles and no caravan so it was an easy 50 Km drive.  The artwork on the tower was excellent but a security fence and trees […]

All the water tanks I plan to visit on Friday are in the Blue Mountains and my first was at Katoomba, but before the tower I went to Echo Point to view the Three Sisters, which I haven’t seen since I was a child.  There are still three, unlike the twelve apostles in Victoria where […]

So it was back to reality today travelling with a caravan through Sydney, at one stage I was on the very windy Pennant Hills Road in the middle lane with a B-Double on either side, I did breath in!  I set up camp at the Richmond Club, who have a 20 site small camping area.  […]

The drive from Wauchope to Maitland Showground was along the Pacific Motorway through forests for most of the journey, an easy drive that seemed over before it started.  Once set up I drove to see a water tank at Coal Point on Lake Macquarie, about 40 Km away.  The artwork was only in a band […]

Corindi Beach Caravan Park where I am staying is on a headland with a great view down the coast.   I visited Woolgoolga about 20 Km south to see the water tower there, sadly it was an old artwork, faded, with damage and not very good anyway.  It was of a seascape with whales cavorting, […]

Hardly a holiday hotspot but for Street Art, well worth a visit.  It is also the home of my cousin Neville and his wife Noreen whom I haven’t seen since I was at their wedding 59 years ago.  It was great to catch up and we shared lots of memories and found out about children, […]

A short trip of 80 or so Km brings me to Brisbane, bit of a shock after a month mostly in the bush, but the roads are good and the GPS is a saviour.  I have a number of towers to visit so I decided to do them all on Sunday, hopefully with less traffic.  […]

On Wednesday my friends Trish and Dave came out to the caravan park and we enjoyed several hours of conversation on a deck that overlooked the view from the park over the Sunshine Coast, it was great to catch up. We planned some walks for Thursday and a lunch, but the day was wet so […]

After eight very restful days at Noosa I moved onto Ocean View Caravan Park, a big trip of around 80 Km, and the park really does have a wonderful ocean view over the Sunshine Coast.  The photo below is what I see from my van. Once set up, I went to Maleny to Mary Cairncross […]

It’s Saturday and after nearly four weeks away and 5,500 Km I am still enjoying the journey.  I decided to check out a couple of National Parks so headed off for Tewantin National Park and up Mt Tinbeerwah where there is 1 Km walk to the summit.  Great views at the top, and there was […]
