Carnarvon Gorge Contd

The plan for the day was to walk in as far as Wards Canyon and then stop at as many spots as possible on the way out. The idea being if we got tired out we could go straight back to camp and do a shorter walk the next day to catch what we’d missed. At about 4kms in to the walk and complaining...

Carnarvon Gorge

Jul 7, 2014 by

  Woke up this morning with ice crystals formed like stars on the inside of the tent. When the sun finally came up and started to burn the frost off it started to rain a little inside so it took a little time to try and dry things off as much as possible before packing up. We were booked in for 4 nights at...

Lots Wife & Marlong Arch

On our 3rd day here we drove the western section of the park and started with a visit to the Marlong Plain. From there we stopped next at Lot’s Wife which is an impressive sandstone pillar in the middle of the bush. Next was Kookaburra Cave with an interesting array of indigenous art & carving. See if you can work out why it’s called...

More Mount Moffatt

Jul 4, 2014 by

After a quiet day hanging around the camp ground and relaxing we decided to go and explore some of the features of the park. There are a few marked historical sites from early white settlement and we were surprised to note at the Incineration Site that the remains of the policeman murdered are actually held at the church where Megan & I were married....

The road north to Mitchell whilst good and fairly smooth was in some places single lane and in others 1.75 lanes wide. Got stuck behind a caravan doing 75km/h for 20kms or so which was a little frustrating as I knew we had a long drive ahead. Stopped in Mitchell for some lunch, fuel, food, beer etc and continued on the approx 220kms north...

The Overflow

Jul 1, 2014 by

Arrived at our friends around 3.30pm and the kids quickly reacquainted themselves and set off to play while we got settled. Overflow was bigger than we expected with a 2km driveway to the house by the Maranoa River and some 35,000 acres. Some calves were in the process of being weaned so we had a welcoming chorus of mothers and calves lowing to each...

After a very hectic week and lots of late night preparation we got under way on Sunday morning about 10am. First stop was Toowoomba for a traditional dose of Maccas for the start of the holidays. It was 12 degrees C and really windy and it didn’t help our concerns about how we’d stay warm this trip. First nights camp was at Lees Reserve...

Home Again

Mar 23, 2014 by

After 10 weeks on the road and 15,000kms travelled we are home again. The map above gives you an overview of where we went. I had planned on keeping a tally on costs and be able to quote off some amazing facts about our fuel consumption but I think by the 3rd refuel I’d lost the receipt and any enthusiasm for keeping records. Besides,...

Trial Bay

Sep 13, 2013 by

Our original plan had been to go home via Tenterfield and climb Bald Rock but being confirmed coastal dwellers we were all missing the ocean and decided to spend the last couple of days by the sea. Checking the maps we decided to drive over the mountains via the Oxley Highway and stop at Trial Bay. Nice view from the camper. The gaol is...

Mudgee to Tamworth

Sep 11, 2013 by

On leaving Canberra we travelled north via Bathurst for a night in Mudgee. Last time I drove through Bathurst I decided not to drive Mt Panorama and I kind of regretted it so this time we took the Paj for a ‘hot’ lap. While not the biggest V8 fan I have spent quite a few hours watching Bathurst over the years and driving the...

After the issues with the car in Tumut we had a trouble free trip through to Canberra stopping off at The Dog on the Tucker Box at Gundagai before arriving at our site at EPIC. Friendly staff and convenient location are the nicest things I could say about this place. Whoever decided to plum the showers directly to the ceiling of the shower stalls...

Trouble in Tumut

Sep 6, 2013 by

After a relaxing time on the Murray and a quick overnight at Tocumwal we moved on to Tumut where we had agreed to meet up with Megan’s parents. The kids were very happy to see G & G and also happy they brought their bicycles with them. The plan was to drive up to Mt Selwyn and show the kids their first snow so...

After an overnight stop in Renmark to stock up on food again we headed on to Mildura via Paringa where we found another Black Stump. We all started thinking about how long ago it was that we were at the Black Stump in Blackall and were reminded how fortunate we were to be able to do such a trip and just how far we...

Wilpena Pound

Aug 31, 2013 by

28/08/13 An amazing thing happened as we passed through the little towns of Parachilna and Blinman on our way Wilpena Pound in the Flinders Ranges today. They are both quite picturesque and have things likes underground mines to visit, but what was amazing to us was all the green grass everywhere. We’ve missed grass!!!!  Liam wanted to get out of the car and roll...

The Oodnadatta Track  Part 2:  Lake Eyre – Farina

27/08/13 Hello Lake Eyre!!! We stopped at the Lake Eyre South lookout and walked out to the salt plain.  It was a fair walk out there, about 1km, but well worth it.  The kids had a great time running around on the salt crust. While hamming it up for the camera they both discovered the mud underneath the salt. Yuk!  Cameron made them both...
