Mar 17, 2009 - Doing the long bumpy ride to Snowy River NP

As yesterday we did not venture far we decided to extend our stay here in Marlo by another day. At ten us girls went off to the hairdressers. It was great, time out and all hair trimmed and mine coloured for $110!!!! We then all drove to Orbost to have a bakery lunch and wander the streets of Orbost. After doing that we thought a drive to the Snowy River National Park and see a few falls and the McKillop bridge would be nice....Little did I realise that it was a four hour round trip on a gravel, bumpy and almost corrugated road.

Mar 16, 2009 - Marlo, Diaries & Pub overlooking Snowy River

We decided to go for a family walk down to the Snowy River before breakfast and the writing of the dreaded diaries....it is a hard slog getting them to do it... The caravan park office is adjoined to a hairdressers and the girls needed a haircut so I booked an appointment for 10am tomorrow...Tuesday. We enjoyed the walk down along the river but Sean suggested a walk trail back which was straight up a hill...he regretted it as he carried Miranda (16Kg)....we all realised how little exercise we have been doing and felt horrid!!! We returned...

Mar 15, 2009 - Gippsland Grammer Fair and Farewell to the Sheltons

While we were packing up the Sheltons left to Sale for their school fair. It took longer to pack than normal...maybe we did not want to leave!!! I was keen to move on as felt that poor Michelle could not get any peace as 5+4 =9 in her home and routine was no where to be found!!! We left the caravan on their front verge and travelled to Sale to join them at their school fair. It was cold and raining in spits and spurts so I said that the water slide was one activity that our kids could not do but as the Sheltons were on it as we arrived I...

Nov 29, 2005 - Ontos - Foster

Day three of our trip was looking more promising as the sun was actually shining for a change; unfortunately this was the day we would spend most of our time indoors! We had a gorgeous breakfast of porridge (Cathy loved it, but Melanie said she preferred her daddy's!!) and pancakes to prepare us for another long day in the bus. Cathy got to sit up front beside Phil, much to her delight. The first stop was about 30 minutes away at the Limestone Caves in Buchan - Melanie opted out of this one and went on a walk with Phil and a couple of the...

Nov 28, 2005 - Jindabyne to Ontos via the Snowy River

We stopped on the way to Ontos in a little village called Suggan Buggan to see one of the oldest schools in the area. There are only 3 people living in Suggan Buggan and it is extremely remote. The school has been preserved as it was used in the past with its original features. It was fascinating to see. It is preserved to let people see how life was in the past in these remote areas. We then went on a drive down some of the forest tracks to spy koalas and we saw one! It was so cute and he looked right at us. We saw Kangaroos on the way to...
