Follow the Sun, Day 49 – Gorged Out

Day 49, 31/8/2019 Saturday Cania Gorge, overcast low 20’s To make some room while making breakfast Woody puts the chook scraps out on the caravan drop down table. When we go outside to have a coffee there’s no sign of the bag just a bunch of cheeky currawongs and some fruit peel. Sorry chooks. We study the National Parks map and note that most of the walks seem to start at our park gate. Ok, we’ll do the Gorge View near Dragon’s Cave. It appears to be a short 2.5km, 1hour walk. It’s a warm morning and we wander along … Continue reading Follow the Sun, Day 49 – Gorged Out

Follow the Sun, Day 48 Cania Gorge

Day 48, 30/8/2019 Friday, Mulambin to Cania Gorge, warm 26 Another beautiful morning and we quickly slip back into the old pack up routine. There are farewells all round as we’re the first to leave. The others will catch us down the track shortly. It’s already 22 degrees at 9:00am and we call into Rockhampton for a few supplies. Fruit and Vegies at Doblo’s fabulous fruit barn and spelt bread at Allenstown.  We’ve been advised to avoid the New England Highway as the drought has caused Stanthorpe, Tenterfield and Tamworth to be critically low on water.  Thus we pick up … Continue reading Follow the Sun, Day 48 Cania Gorge

Mulambin Mumblings – Pisang Ducasse

Aug 2019, Mulambin, Capricorn Coast, Qld Now that’s not a heading you often see. We were up early to take Double or ‘Nuthin and Shirley to the Yeppoon Farmer’s Market which turned out to be a bit of a non-event. Double or ‘Nuthin had been told to look for the pineapple juice. He found it and bought some, frozen, in an old vinegar bottle. Demand must be fierce as they don’t even have the time to soak the labels off the bottles. Anyway, he reckons it was good. Although on this overcast morning there weren’t many stalls we stocked up … Continue reading Mulambin Mumblings – Pisang Ducasse

Mulambin Mumblings – Hotel California

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

Mulambin Mumblings – Australia? You’re standing in it!

Aug 2019, Mulambin, Capricorn Coast, Qld With the Prado’s we go in search of Zilzie, it’s the next town to Emu Park and what a great name Zilzie is, wouldn’t you love to tell people that you live in Zilzie? However we manage to get ourselves a little lost. Woody jumps out of the car and asks a local, who’s washing his car,  where we can find Zilzie. The answer of course is “You’re standing in it!” Double or Nuthin’ & Shirley take our advice and visit Byfield. They return to say that they couldn’t find the Byfield National Park … Continue reading Mulambin Mumblings – Australia? You’re standing in it!
