Day 52, 3/9/2019 Tuesday Chinderah to Wooli, 27 We pull out of the park into peak hour traffic but thankfully most of the traffic is going north to the Gold Coast. Further enhancing my theory that Brisbane, Gold Coast & Sunshine Coast are rapidly merging into one very large city. Woody wants to know where they’re all going. How quickly we forget that some people do work. We’re contemplating this when we start bouncing. Oh shit! Not a puncture. We pull over and check the tyres, the car, the van. Gotcha! Bloody New South Wales concrete roads! We always forget … Continue reading Follow the Sun, Day 52 – Wooli or wonti?

Aug 2019, Mulambin, Capricorn Coast, Qld I pulled my shoulder again last night just trying to take my shorts off! I know, it makes an awful mind picture and of course another damned uncomfortable night. That’ll teach me for wandering around pubs in the dark. It’s 9:00am I’m feeling like death warmed up and Woody rushes into the van with an anxious look on his face. “I need to go to the loo!” he says “Well go.” “I can’t, it’s rush hour!” It seems 12 cubicles aren’t enough at peak hour. Continue reading Mulambin Mumblings – Rush Hour
Aug 2019, Mulambin, Capricorn Coast, Qld For some time now Woody has been saying that he’d like to spend winter in one place (and preferably not home) and this year after our failed trip to Darwin we thought FNQ* might be our objective. As we pressed on each stop became more enjoyable and we realised that we just needed to put our feet up. And rest. Then Elle noticed that our park was offering a late winter deal online. By further extending our stay and applying the new deal three weeks here in one of our favourite parks averages out … Continue reading Mulambin Mumblings – Hotel California
Aug 2018, Cobram, Vic I don’t know how other Victorians feel but to us and Victoria being such a small state, that by the time we reach the border we feel like we are already home. We often find ourselves in a Murray River town like Tocumwal or Cobram putting our feet up and talking about the trip that was. When you want a getaway or to catch your breath after a lot of driving the RACV Cobram Resort is well worth it’s price tag of $44. Well organised, huge, yes huge sites with a patch of lawn as well. … Continue reading RACV Cobram

Mar 2019. Wallaga Lake, NSW We check into the Ingenia caravan park at Wallaga Lake (Wolluguh according to the locals). They have a deal on for 4 nights at $100, which works out to be a mere $1 per night … Continue reading Wallaga Lake
Winter 2018, Elliott Heads, Qld A short drive east from Bundaberg through cane fields, sweet potatoes, zucchini and strawberries to Elliott Heads. The Elliott Heads Holiday Park is on a point. A gentle curve of ocean beach on the northern … Continue reading Elliott Heads
June 2018, Rollingstone, Qld The midges are winning. I’ve tried Bushmans, The Locals, long clothes and Elle’s pungent mixture of baby oil and Dettol. Elle’s mixture is the only one that does a half decent job of warding off the … Continue reading Of midges and tides and lazing in the tropics
Woody wanders out of the amenities block to find a distressed woman pacing about and in need of help. He obliges with “You in there Warwick? Here’s your towel mate.” Continue reading Forgot Something?
