Spring 2018, Loch, Vic West Gippsland is all rolling hills dotted with contented dairy cows and the tiny village of Loch is little more than an hour from Melbourne (80 minutes from the CBD). The Reserve is a sports ground … Continue reading Loch Memorial Reserve
Spring 2018, Loch, Vic Escaping from our caravan park on a wintry Spring Sunday afternoon we visited the Gippsland Wine Company at Loch to be pampered by our gracious hosts Mark and Jane. We not only tasted their range but … Continue reading Gippsland Wine Company
Fellow travel bloggers, you know the feeling when you think “God what am I going to write about this place?”. And it dawns on you that that is the very story. Spring 2018, Somewhere in West Gippsland, Vic Our caravan club September Muster had been planned for Griffith in Southern NSW but was quickly changed to nearby West Gippsland when most members voted not to drive north when they’d only just returned from up that way in their long winter travels. The selected caravan park had been a charming spot when visited nine years earlier. A few members were wandering … Continue reading Soggy as…
May 2018 We’ve just arrived at Warracknabeal in Victoria’s Wimmera for a caravan club muster and our dodgy bathroom drawer has done another backflip, this time emptying everything onto the floor. While Woody directs caravans into parking spots I’m on my knees picking his heart tablets out of the floor rug. Then rain disrupts our happy hour and sends us scurrying off to the pub early. The big old Creekside Hotel with its blazing fireplaces is warm and welcoming on this chilly autumn evening and the meals are top notch. Sometimes it’s hard to guess which pub will provide the … Continue reading Heartbroken at the Creekside Hotel
It’s the last day of our 3 month trip and we drive into Cobram for a look around. I vow not to take any more photos as we’ve been here more times than we can count. Like so many Melburnians … Continue reading How’s my bum look?
Our caravan club recently toured the Silo Trail in Western Victoria. Because of the distances involved it is wise to base yourself at the caravan park in Warracknabeal like we did or at the well-appointed RV Park in Brim. There is one more silo in this region at Patchewollock which we didn’t visit on this trip due to time constraints. Northern Silo Trail With excitement we share cars and set off on the ‘Northern Silo Trail’. Brim is only a short distance up the road and those who are new to this kind of art are gobsmacked at the proportions. … Continue reading Silo Touring in Victoria
In the Fort O’Hare camp ground at Dartmoor, Vic I wander down to the Glenelg River to take a few photos and sit on the wooden landing. Another camper sits beside me and we start chatting about this and that. It turns out that we went to high school together. Small world yet again. Continue reading If we went to school together can you put your hand up?
We follow the river inland to Dartmoor to a camp that we’ve heard a lot about. The town’s avenue of cypress trees are sculpted into a memorial drive to the fallen of World War One. The Fort O’Hare camp ground … Continue reading Fort O’Hare Camp Ground, Dartmoor
Autumn 2017 Lakelands Caravan Park is only a few blocks down the hill from Tallangatta town centre. What a surprise Lakelands turns out to be with sites overlooking Lake Hume, beautiful views of rolling hills, fishing boats darting back and forth and cows mooing on the far shore. We could happily sit here for a week. Continue reading Lakelands Caravan Park
