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

Where the river meets the sea

Having grown up a river boy, born and bred on the Murray River, Corey has long wanted to follow the river out to where it meets the sea. So when planning our trip, we factored in the reverse and decided to follow the Murray River from its mouth back home to Mildura where we’d be … Continue reading Where the river meets the sea

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…

Our summary of Tassie – Wk 3

Last one, I promise! This is the final post about our three week trip to Tasmania! Port Arthur New Year’s Day! After a relatively quiet night, and despite the grey and overcast day, we decided to head out to Port Arthur. Port Arthur was intriguing and one day I’ll read about the history a little … Continue reading Our summary of Tassie – Wk 3

Our summary of Tassie – Wk 2

They get shorter, I promise you!!! Base at New Norfolk So, in my last post, you would have seen us just finish up our Christmas sojourn to Strahan (and the comfort of a hotel room!). But of course, when on a trip like ours, it was time to get moving again. We left Strahan thinking … Continue reading Our summary of Tassie – Wk 2

Our summary of Tassie – Wk 1

So I’m sitting here at Lake Bonney, near Barmera in South Australia, lamenting the fact that I’ve left writing about our three weeks in Tasmania all in one go. Note to self: When you leave writing three weeks worth of posts until the end of a trip instead of posting them during that time (even … Continue reading Our summary of Tassie – Wk 1

Surprise! We’re home… for a short visit anyway

The idea for making a quick dash home to surprise the in-laws had been fermenting for some time. Given that we still needed to pick up our tent and camping gear at some stage in preparation for our trip to Tasmania (or arrange for a friend to bring it to Melbourne, which was the original … Continue reading Surprise! We’re home… for a short visit anyway
