Destination Mildura

Cobram was the next stop on our way to Mildura.  We enjoyed some time at Thompson Beach which lays claim to being Australia’s biggest inland beach.  It was certainly a lovely stretch of white sand along the bank of the Murray.  We stayed at a free camp on the Barooga side of the river that […]

There are many Heritage listed buildings including the old goal that was opened in 1839 and was built with convict labour.  A visit to […]

On the Road again…. to Sydney

On the recommendation of Brendyn’s sister,  Kylee, we went to Knorrit Flat to camp that night.  She had taken her family there for camping trips in years past and they enjoyed the lovely location and tubing down the river – a popular activity there.  It was great! Really beautiful under the trees by the river. […]

Tasmania Week 4

Monday 2/4/18 – Sunday 8/4/18 Alas the rain continued the morning we left Cockle Creek ensuring a soggy camp pack up.  And no,  I did not get to see a Tasmanian Devil or Spotted Quoll whilst there.  Nevertheless, our stay at Cockle Creek remains a definite highlight.  It’s a great spot. We headed along the […]

Bits n Pieces, Odds n Ends

Every living space has one, and vans are no different, that space where you store bits and pieces, odds and ends. Stuff you don’t want to put away because you use it too often to be bothered. So, here is mine. Well I actually have two areas. One is beside the bed and the other […]
