Jun 13, 2017 - 13th June, 2017. Wee Waa to Goondiwindi

13/6/2017. Wee waa to Goondiwindi It's 4.45pm, 22 degrees, and I'm sitting outside the van typing. This is only the second time since we left Anne and Ian on the 7th May that we have been able to sit out, and we are so enjoying it. We're at a free camp at Goondiwindi at Redmond Park, which the Council are trying out for 6 months, it having been operating for 2 months now. Last night there were 12 vans/motor homes here and tonight there are 9, but it's still early. We arrived at 3.30 and got the last legal spot - yesterday they were all...

Sep 21, 2016 - Collarenebri NSW to Goondiwindi QLD

21/9/2016. Collarenebri NSW to Goondiwindi QLD Back on home soil.... It was a good free camp last night with flush toilets and showers, with very little road noise, and we'd recommend it. It rained on and off but not as heavy as we've had it over the last week. By the time we left the rain had stopped, but the clouds were still there, threatening more rain. We went back into the town first as I'd requested, but as usual - Ian was right! Very small town, and I didn't miss anything. But at least I know that for myself, rather than being told....

Homeless but happy

Jun 8, 2016 - Crows Nest to Goondiwindi

Up the Centre 8.6.16 We travelled to Goondiwindi today via Warwick. 297km Stopped at Warwick to visit with Clarry and Judith. Great to see them and enjoyed 1 1/2 hours chatting with them. On to Goondiwindi, one Truckie very appreciative when Noel pulled off for him to pass, told Noel he was a good driver and to teach all his caravan mates the same. Very dry all the way today. Arrived at Goondiwindi 2.30pm. Staying at Showgrounds, amenities very good. Sunny day, much warmer no jacket on this afternoon Love Dawn

Jul 27, 2015 - Adventure begins

Monday 27 July 2015 Up early, with lots to do before setting off on our trek to Perth. Left home at 10.15am, later than we had wanted, but all loaded up for our adventure. With Goondiwindi in our sights, we had a pleasant drive, stopping in Warwick for lunch and again at Inglewood for a stretch. Having left home on a very warm morning, it was a bit of a shock to step out of the car in Warwick, a colder break in Inglewood, and worse still in Goondiwindi when we arrived around 3.30pm. The wind chill factor doesn't help. Tomorrow morning is...

Dec 17, 2014 - Back on the road to Gundy

Early start from Bundy - final destination Goondiwindi. Trouble free trip on a very hot day (40 deg). Childers, Biggenden, Goomeri, Murgon, Wondai, Kingaroy with a stop for lunch at a small town called Kumbia. Another stop at Dalby (what a large, bustling town) before a trip through to Goondiwindi with another stop at Moonie on the way.

Mar 10, 2014 - Goondiwindi

Today we continued down the Leichhardt Hwy to Goondiwindi. How they can call this road a highway is beyond me. It was more like a goat track. Often we were reduced to 60 - 70 km/hr because of the roughness of the surface. We once again went to the Big 4 Park which has the artesian springs and enjoyed a soak in these. The pool was also very pleasant and those of you who know my swimming preferences will know what it was like when I say that I walked straight into the ordinary pool both before and after the hot spa! We are not bothering to...

Feb 23, 2014 - Brisbane to Gore RestArea

Day1 - Sunday 23-2-2014. (Ron) On duty at church this morning. Jan was on welcoming and then crèche and Ron on singing team. So we didn't get home till 10:45 and then did the last minute packing for a 12:00 departure. The goal was to get to Goondiwindi for overnight, so we had a lunch stop at Fassifern Rest Area. After lunch I lifted the bonnet to connect the second battery up for charging and noticed a bolt meant to secure the air filter was just bouncing around in it's hole unsecured. Methinks the mechanic slipped up the week before. Out...

Nov 6, 2013 - Day 29 - UPDATE NOTES

Hi All, Bourke was an interesting town, dying like most country towns but interesting, they rely solely on rains in Queensland to give life to the Darling River to allow for irrigation their most rewarding crop being cotton. We were fearful that the town would have a high number of indigenous people but that fear was unfounded, not too many and those there looked and behaved much better than what we see further out west. We did heaps there, went on a paddle boat on the river, did 3 short local tours, explored the Back O’Bourke Centre, did a...

Back of Bourke

Aug 26, 2011 - Goondiwindi

Episode 3 of 9 – Yeppoon to Port Augusta Miles to Goondiwindi Goondiwindi is 4225kms from Dunsborough. Goondiwindi – pronounced Gundiwindi. This is the final frontier town before the New South Wales border, which we should cross over into the day after tomorrow. We were last in the town in late January, when we stayed overnight on our way to Melbourne trying to avoid all the floods. I’m not going to bore you with road conditions as I’ve come to the conclusion that ALL Queensland roads are absolutely crap. The drive was very flat and pretty...

Living the Dream

May 11, 2011 - Goondiwindi

9th May. This morning we said goodbye to Rosie and Ron, they have been so kind and hospitable during our stay in Toowoomba. We headed for Goondiwindi, we stopped at a very nice rest park on the edge of the town of Inglewood for lunch, which was pleasant. It rained most of last night, but until we were about 40 klms from Goondiwindi, it had been cloudy but sunny, then the sky became quite black with rain clouds, no sooner had we arrived at the Gundy Star Tourist Park, as the rains came. This caravan park has an Artesian Spa and Pool, the...

Jan 31, 2011 - Goondiwindi

Roma to Goondiwindi Goondiwindi – pronounced Gundiwindi. I’m not going to bore you with road conditions as I’ve come to the conclusion that ALL Queensland roads are absolutely appalling (unless you like driving on rollercoasters). Plenty of evidence of the recent flooding in the area during the trip and the roads are a minefield of really bad potholes (told you I wasn’t going to mentions roads). I had heard of Goondiwindi before but had no idea it was so big, with a population of around 11,000. The town is very neat with very wide streets...
