Aug 15, 2017 - Along the way

We are still enjoying the roof top tent for now, having been in it over 100 days, so we have plenty of exercise so far. There are been lots of beach walks to enjoy and although the temp. is not overly hot like up in King Ash Bay, its still pleasant in the mid 20's. Our week of luxury at Caloundra was great gave us time to repack the cruiser and sort through our accumulated stuff.

Sep 24, 2016 - Kingaroy

24/9/2016 Kingaroy A lovely, sunny day. We checked out a local furniture store, and saw some things which might suit our new place, and at a very good price. Our next stop was a lookout 4km out of town and had wonderful views over the farming country and in the opposite direction, the town. Continued on for a drive around the local area and got lost - that was good, because we just kept driving and saw some lovely sights. We saw gliders being taken up - how good would it be to do that, if you were game? Another trip to the supermarket - it...

Homeless but happy

Sep 23, 2016 - Bell to Kingaroy

23/9/2016. Bell to Kingaroy There was a gorgeous sunset last night, but my camera battery was flat, so it's just our memory, and this morning we woke up to a beautiful, sunny day. There are only 3 caravans in this small park, and one is down the back and we haven't even seen those people. There's a lovely couple from Adelaide parked next to us, and we chatted with them before they left and we left soon after. We drove down to the Information Centre and ordered coffee and scones, and while waiting, I wandered around the very big complex....

Oct 26, 2015 - Monday Oct 26th...Kingaroy

Monday Oct 26th…Kingaroy. Happy birthday to me…happy birthday to me A nice peaceful night, the rain cooled everything down and it wasn’t long before we were reaching for the blankets. Nothing planned for today except discovering Kingaroy. Breakfast was early, 1st up a laundromat, this park doesn’t have a laundry being a showgrounds, so into town to get the washing done. Found the place and got things started, washed and dried by 9.15am. Terri has booked me a massage for 10am so plenty of time for a capo. Had apple slice with mine because it...

Oct 25, 2015 - Sunday Oct 25th..Kingaroy

Sunday Oct 25th. Up with the birds and before the sun. Interesting little snippet. We’re about 100m from the main road where there is a large truck bay. Obviously a good place for the truckies to stop and use the facilities and maybe catch up on some sleep. A couple of trucks were there last night and strangely kept Terri awake because they left their engines running to run the air cond to keep their cabs cool while they slept. Terri can sleep while there’s a head banging concert going on (as in Bourke) but the low “gdunk gdunk gdunk” of a...

Jun 30, 2015 - Day 3 - 4 Kingaroy

Only about 130 kms today. We just want a few days to recuperate after the rush and bustle of getting ready to get away and we have a few things to sort out. After we got on the road we discovered that our Waeco (drinks cooler) was not working. We discovered that there was actually a Waeco repairer in Kingaroy but upon inquiring we discovered that it would cost more to repair than to buy a new one and could not be done for 5 days anyway. Consequently, we had to buy a new cooler. We also had to buy a doña as I forgot to pack one and we have...

Jan 14, 2015 - Back in Queensland

Early start today under grey skies and drizzly rain on and off all day. First stop was Moree (a large vibrant town of 10000) for some morning tea and for the boys to play on the huge rocket slides in the park. On then through to Goondiwindi for lunch before heading on through Dalby to Kingaroy. It was good to get our 1 hour back as we crossed the Qld border. Bit of a look around in Kingaroy as the rain started in earnest. Headed to the caravan park for a bit of R and R after 550 odd kms today.

Oct 24, 2011 - Day 22 - 23 UPDATE NOTES

Hi All, Just tripping on around as we do. Had an interesting few days at Emerald and on one day went out to what is called “the Gemfields”, 3 small towns where they mine and fossick for sapphires. Lunch at the country pub made for a good day out. From there we went to Carnarvon Gorge for 2 nights, famous for lots of bush walks that go for miles and a haven for bushwalkers, so we dutifully went for a walk but basically the big ones were really too big for us. Being in a national park it made for stacks of wild life mainly of the winged and...

Mar 7, 2007 - The day before we leave...

Well, here we are then. Tomorrow we head off to the other side of the world... about time! The last few weeks have been a little "crazy" with organising, packing up and saying our goodbyes. Fortunately we have had Son and Doiv (Fi's sister and Bro-in law - seasoned travellers) to call when packing and feel that we have everything important that we need. Fingers crossed. Thanks to those who celebrated with us at our going away party ... especially Lyndl for so nicely putting up with Fi's welcoming haze, I mean hug. It had a hint of...

Jan 29, 2006 - Hi Ho Silver!

Travel quote of the week! "I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read on the train." Oscar Wilde As we drove into the historic Sunshine Coast town of Tewantin, the first thing we noticed was the whitewashed statue of an Anzac soldier. Not that difficult really as his plinth was in the middle of the main street. Opposite, at the entrance to the memorial park, the phrase, 'Lest we forget', had been carved and painted onto a wooden beam. How can we forget I wondered when the world has never stopped...

Jun 2, 2005 - Australia Zoo - CRIKEY!

We arrived at the zoo early and were the first ones in... for those of you that are not aware (as i wasnt) Richard is a big Steve Irwine fan and was very excited about the prospect of meeting him! Had a photo holding a koala, Rich had his photo with Steve Irwin ( unfortunately not the real one but superimposed!) Wombats, kangaroos, snakes, camels, elephants, tigers, cheetahs, crocodiles... you get the picture. Richard wants to be the crocodile hunter when he grows up. the photos are all you need for this update really!

Apr 4, 2005 - Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo (Crikey!)

Hey ho! G'day mate! "Ohhhh crikey... you're alright mate" "He's reaaaally cranky!" etc. Australia Zoo - the home of Steve Irwin! The zoo specialises in Crocs and other nasty animals, but also had some camels, elephants and tigers, all being kept in captivity. Steve, of course, wasn't there, although you could get your picture taken with a cardboard cutout. The shop was overflowing with Steve Irwin memorabelia (fridge magnets, pens etc) - So we played "find the most random piece of Steve Irwin gear" - a great game! Highlights were the...
