Feb 14, 2020 - Day 22 to Kalaru

Hi All, Leaving Wollongong we headed south to Batemans Bay an area badly affected by the bush fires, the area is a string of small villages running down the coast amid bush land. Losses here were very high and we witnessed where there were some horror home losses, some very hot fires, some totally destroying road signs, not so hot fires where there was still some canopy and less damage. It’s interesting to see how quickly the bush starts to recover with so many trees starting to grow leaves even from the trunk. About 2 weeks before we...

Dec 20, 2009 - Day 152 – Lakes Entrance to Bega – Back into NSW

In spite of our attempts to make a quick get away this morning we got a late start as we got chatting with many of the other families in the park. So many conversations start with, ‘we’ve been thinking of taking tome off and driving around the country ourselves, . We have had such a great time we can’t help but spend the time to answer the questions. I also can’t help but find it ironic that 5 months ago we had never hooked a caravan onto a car, let alone towed one, yet here we are regularly providing advice to others....
