Longreach

Jul 22, 2018 by

With the school holidays over it was time to get the kids started on their distance ed adventure, so we headed on to Longreach and a powered en-suite site at the Longreach Tourist Park. It looks much the same as last time we stayed here in 2013 – lots of people & lots of dust. 🙂 We were pleased to see that Jack &...

Lara Wetlands

Jul 19, 2018 by

Lara Wetlands is a working cattle station situated between Blackall & Barcaldine. After quite a long drive down a dirt driveway you suddenly arrive at the Wetlands which are fed from the onsite artesian bore. It was pretty busy with vans crammed in all around the edges of the wetland. As we like our space we decided on a site a bit further back...

Megs and I have been fortunate enough to get some time off work so we’ve enrolled the kids in Distance Education and hope to be back for Christmas. The green line will join back to Brisbane but here is a rough draft of where we are headed. After packing the house up, changing our mind a couple of time about whether to sell or...

Apart from 1 or 2 small trips it has been a year since we have been away in the van. For this trip our two requirements were: had to be dog friendly so we could take Ruby and near a beach where we could set up and not do much of anything for a week. We chose Woodgate Beach Tourist Park which is about...

Cunnamulla

Jul 5, 2016 by

It was an interesting drive from Thargomindah to Cunnamulla and we stopped about halfway at Eulo for a look around at the opal shop. We all bought some rocks of some sort and continued on our way to Warrego Riverside Tourist Park where we luckily jagged a powered site for 2 nights without a booking.

Thargomindah

Jul 3, 2016 by

Thargomindah is just one of those place names that invite you to visit. Just to see what its like. It was a fairly short drive from Noccundra at under 3 hours and we were all looking forward to hot showers and caravan park amenities. The road there is good single lane bitumen and the drive gives a good appreciation for what channel country looks...

The Dig Tree

Jul 3, 2016 by

We packed up fairly early and headed over to the pub at Noccundra to fuel up in preperation of a run to the Dig Tree. Having a chat with the lady that ran the pub while paying for the fuel (not too bad at $1.71/l) she mentioned they get the road closures report about 9am and they were expecting a few more roads to...

Topped up with fuel and food in Quilpie and hit the road towards Eromanga. Arrived in town about lunchtime so we thought we would do our traditional iconic pub lunch of a beer and a plate of chips. Picked up the key to the local museum at the pub and had a good look through some really cool displays. The video is a must...

Lake Houdraman

Jun 29, 2016 by

We’re a little bit lost without our original planned itinery now that we’ve struck the road closures. Only a short drive today from Charleville to Quilpie. Decided to check out a free camp on the way into town at a place called Lake Houdraman. Was a bit worried at what we’d find as the road out of town was still noted as closed and...

With one of our longest driving days today we left Chinchilla weir at a very leisurely 8.30am. We have a reservation at our destination and with such a minimal set up when we arrive one of the real joys of the van is the removal of the need to get there early. We stopped at the very busy Roma Bakery for a late morning...

Chinchilla Weir

Jun 25, 2016 by

Excited to be going away for 2 whole weeks and the first longish test of travelling with our Starcraft, we were packed and underway by about 11 am. Our first day destination is Chinchilla Weir (thanks Wikicamps) as with both Megan & I working full time we just didn’t have the time or energy to get everything ready and packed to do a 4am...

After dropping off the dog at her temporary home we got underway for our ANZAC Day weekend destination at Sommerville Valley Tourist Park located on the banks of Storm King Dam outside of Stanthorpe. I was looking forward to the drive and in particular how the Pajero would go towing the van up Cunninghams Gap as all the places we had gone to date...

New Beginnings

Nov 12, 2015 by

Many times whilst travelling around in our camper trailer we have been envious of the grey & not so grey nomads in their caravans who could start packing up before sun up, find a place to eat lunch away from flies (inside), had a minimal set up when arriving and on a cold/rainy/windy day had somewhere to hide that wasn’t their bed. Well we...

Sheepstation Creek

Jan 5, 2015 by

I had a couple of weeks off over Christmas/New Year so we thought we would try one of the camp sites around the Border Ranges. We drove up the Lions Road to Sheepstation Creek campground in some pretty heavy rain and managed to set up the camper in a break between showers.   Campground was best suited to back packer vans and we managed...

With work and study getting in the way of our ability to get away in the camper much this year we decided to go for a quiet long weekend just over the border in NSW at Boonoo Boonoo National Park. Last time we drove here we made the mistake of going over the Border Ranges and then following our GPS on a very long...
