Oct 17, 2015 - Dunedoo - Mudgee - 95km

EXEC SUMMARY - another early start as again a longer ride for the last day - weather was in the 30s so quite hot for riding - 40km of dirt roads with about half in the morning and rest in the afternoon - last day, so many stops for photos - lovely countryside - lunch back at Gulgong Prince of Wales Hotel where we had spent first night - hard to leave pub after lunch and get back onto the road in the heat - I rode back with Ian and the small group who left before us missed a turn off and ended up riding an extra 6km. Ray was in the group and...

Nov 20, 2013 - Mudgee....

Today was a pleasant day compared to yesterday, a nice drive to Mudgee from our overnight freebie at Karuah. Our “Guide” Lee got us through to Maitland via the short cut then through the Hunter and onto the “Golden Hwy”. Lee only got stressed when we diverted into Cassilis for lunch under the Plane Trees outside the Court House Then its a short hop to the Ulan Rd. Ulan is a big place these days, coal mines everywhere and not a hint of the Oil of Ulan works, now moved to Olay; presumably the coal took over from the oil.... The Ulan Rd took...

Apr 9, 2011 - Londonderry to Mudgee

Finally on the road,after a good bawl, an emotional farewell! It has been such a busy time to get away, packing up the house, cleaning, painting,saying goodbye. Its a bit like a roller coaster, its scary and you know it will be fun but its just getting to the top thats a bit overwhelming. Once we started it was fine but it wasn't long when i hit a bump, we got to Bell bird Hill and i stalled the troopy while towing the van. Wasn't a great feeling and i must admit i panicked because all i could see is cars coming around a blind corner and...

Jun 2, 2010 - Regarding Mudgee

Ahhhh Mudgee town of wine and fine food, my deeply religious Presbyterian rellies would be turning in their graves if they knew the land they tilled so diligently was being used to make wine!!!! We went on a trail of reminiscence this morning, along Rocky Waterholes road past the house on the Cudgegong River near Mount Frome. We used to swim in the river there; Carol was incredulous that we did, of course that was well before the Windamere dam which now makes the Rocky Waterholes where we used to swim a bog. Put some flowers on Grandfathers...

Apr 19, 2005 - Blue Mountains - Mudgee

We zitten in Katoomba op de camping, en dat is 1,5 km van The Blue Mountains af. En daar zijn we dan ook bijtijds. Het is rustig op de parking en veel mensen bij het uitzichtspunt zijn er niet. Boven de mountains hangt een blauwe gloed, niet sterk maar toch goed te zien. Deze wordt veroorzaakt door de dampen van de ecalyptusbladeren van de vele ecalyptusbossen. Het is een NP (national park), in 2000 op de werelderfgoedlijst gezet, een zeer indrukwekkend gebied met stijle kliffen, diepe ravijnen en zeer uitgestrekte ecalyptusbossen. Iets na...

Dec 27, 2004 - Blue Mountains

We arrived at Katoomba which is in the heart of the Blue Mountains and about 2 hours from Sydney, in our shorts and t-shirts, having just left a city that was about 30', only to find that we didn't have enough clothes with us, up in the mountains it certainly does get a bit chilly!!! Our first proper view of the mountains was along a cliff top walk that ended up at the 3 Sisters which is famous landmark in the Blue Mountains with an aboriginal story behind it. With only a few days there, we had a lot to cover including a few tours and...

Jan 16, 2004 - My Family and Other Animals

The alarm clock rang cruelly, at an hour when many of our fellow hostellers were probably still out from the night before, celebrating the festivities of the Christmas season. I can't say that I've ever been up so early on Boxing Day before, but then I haven't spent too many of them waking up in a bunk bed in Sydney. Still, having whiled away Christmas Day in typical 'Brits in Aus' fashion, I guess you could argue that there was some justice to our dawn start. And the reason for all this? The other three members of the Frost clan were...
