Slowing down at Lincoln

And so I'm finally up to date! Three months of blog posts that were abandoned, because let's be honest... I couldn't be bothered.  After our extended stay in Mildura, I lost the momentum and just didn't get around to updating our travels.  I'd write notes on my phone and of course took heaps of pics … Continue reading Slowing down at Lincoln

Westward bound

Finally, we're heading west! After a extended stay back home in Mildura and killing time in Melbourne whilst our van was in getting some things repaired, it is finally time to really start our trip and head west, to places that we've not been before! We left rainy Melbourne/Ocean Grove and made our way through … Continue reading Westward bound

Marking time in Melbourne

After the detour through Silo country (aka the Wimmera), we stopped at Halls Gap for a short two-night break before we headed into Melbourne.  We based ourselves at a national park area called Plantation Campground to explore the Grampians and spent our time sussing out McKenzie Falls and checking out the local wildlife. We also decided, after … Continue reading Marking time in Melbourne

A silo detour

Before Christmas, we had to stop in at our caravan manufacturer's factory and get a few things fixed on our van.  Unfortunately, there were some things that couldn't be done in this trip and so we had to make another time to take the van back to Melbourne so we could get some bigger things repaired - … Continue reading A silo detour

Home again, home again, jiggity jig

And so comes the pause in our trip, the one that we were half looking forward to and half dreading.  When planning our trip, we realised that Corey's dad's 70th birthday would be smack bang in the middle of our trip.  Our original route had us heading west first and we toyed with the idea … Continue reading Home again, home again, jiggity jig

Aussie Day tradition continues at the Lake

The past few years we have spent our Australia Day long weekend out at Lake Cullulleraine. Only 50km from Mildura, the trip out to the lake makes it feel as though we’re getting away for a break, but we’re not spending all that time travelling. We spend this time with a fabulous crew, who keep … Continue reading Aussie Day tradition continues at the Lake

Beautiful Barmera

We didn’t have to go too far to find our next stop having decided that we would find somewhere with power and water and some play equipment for the girls. Staying at the Barmera Discovery Park, we settled into our site and the girls headed straight for the pool. Situated on the edge of Lake … Continue reading Beautiful Barmera

Riverside at Morgan via Adelaide

So our plans to follow the Murray River were thwarted somewhat thanks to our solar issue. We’d anticipated this might be the case hence the reason for the direct trip to Murray Bridge rather than to Tailem Bend as originally planned. With both the ute and caravan dropped off for a service, we headed to … Continue reading Riverside at Morgan via Adelaide

The day we got to visit our fur-babies

Today’s the day we got to see our fur-babies. Our awesome breeders have been looking after George and Penny, our British Bulldogs. One of our biggest struggles when making the decision to do this trip, was to figure out what to do with our 2 beloved pooches and feline friend Zuki. Knowing that George and … Continue reading The day we got to visit our fur-babies

When in Robe…

There wasn't a lot of time to reflect upon our fabulous Tassie adventure, because no sooner had we docked and reached the mainland, were we off again on the next leg of our trip.  Having left our van out at a friend's place just out from Geelong, we arrived at their place late and head off … Continue reading When in Robe…
