Mar 2, 2015 - Griffith, New South Wales

Our first day out of Yanakie turned out to be quite eventful. We dropped down to the southern Victoria coast for one night in an out-of-the-way caravan park with power that was provided by on-site diesel generators that only ran three hours in the morning and four hours in the evening. At least we could charge up the electronics and use the microwave to help cook dinner. The water supply was from a bore well, so it would be heavy on minerals that might not agree with our digestive systems, but we always have plenty of fresh water in our...

2014-Australia

Apr 19, 2012 - Griffith/Lake Wyangan

17th/18th April Spent two very relaxing days at this camp situated about 8 kms out of Griffith. The weather has been a mixed bag , cool breezes in the morning, sunny afternoons,and rainy evening. Walked around Griffiths taking in the sights, with a relaxing lunch in the Memorial gardens. "Griffith was proclaimed a city in 1987 and is a cosmopolitan multi cultural community that pivots on strong wine and food industries. The 19th century saw westward movement of settlers who utilised semi arid plains as massive sheep stations."(source...

Oct 18, 2004 - Holiday plans for post Griffith

Hello again from sunny Down Under. It's slowly crept up upon us, but its nearly time to go home. Amazing. Luckily we have six weeks of "holiday" left before we go home. We plan to finish work here at the end of this month(finally), then go on a little road trip across this wee land for a couple of weeks. I say wee, but we're actually heading for Perth, which is a grand 3,650km away. We've borrowed a car off one of the girls we are staying with and away we go. For those of you who don't know the road between Adelaide and Perth is a very...

Sep 19, 2004 - Paula's dodgy fluid

Alright Hot Shot. Pity about the soccer. Where are you now? Unfortunately things haven't gone quite so smoothly since we got back. I missed work on Monday with a dose of the flu and then Paula started complaining of pains in her stomach on Tuesday. She missed work on Thursday and we thought it was constipation or something so she took a few laxatives but that didn't ease the pain which was pretty bad at that stage. We decided to go up to the hospital once i got back from work if it hadnt eased. Then I get a message at 2 o' clock that she's...

Sep 12, 2004 - Back in Griffith again

Hello again. We've arrived safely back in Griffith after our trip to New Zealand and are gearing up for another six weeks work before travelling again. We got a nice welcome back by seven or eight of the people in the hostel, who were pissed as coots and enjoying the fire out the back. Many new faces have arrived since we left ten days ago but thankfully the majority of the people we got on with are still here and some have returned. The weather has apparently been crap while we were away but it is due to heat up in the next few days. As...

Jul 25, 2004 - Tales from Griffith

Hello again. Sorry it's been a while but we havent been up to that many exciting things of late. At the mo, we're in Griffith, NSW, which produces roughly 30% of Australias citrus fruit and has a large assortment of wineries in the area. The town is mainly occupied by people of Italian descent who came here after the war and there are many Italian restaurants(which we can't afford) on the main street. The population is only around 25,000 and the centre comprises of one main street so it's handy to get around. It's pretty cold here at the...

At the start there was just a few of us, but then...

Newly appointed Mayor Andrew Strange declared that everyone should wear black armbands to commemorate this harrowing occasion. The reformed nutcase announced...

Jun 10, 2004 - Griffith Work Update

Hello Everybody. We have been here in Griffith for almost a week now so I'll give you a quick rundown on what's happening. Myself and Paula are working together at a nursery(no, not children). We tie bundles of young trees together after they have been dug out of the ground and then get them ready for a delvery or replant them near the shed where people come to buy them. I have been designated as the tractor driver so i spend a good deal of the day sitting on my arse driving around. It's easy enough work and ther people we are working for...
