A week well spent in Darwin

Our original plans saw us heading to Kakadu from Katherine but due to school holidays, we had to book our accommodation in Darwin in advance, which meant the extra few days we’d taken here and there meant we had to rejig some timelines, which was no biggie, we just spent an extra day in Katherine …

A drop in the Lake… Argyle

Of all the places we were really looking forward to about Western Australia, Lake Argyle was right at the top of the list.  And it didn’t disappoint. We stayed at the caravan park, situated at the edge of Western Australia's largest, and Australia’s second largest man made lake.  Back in the 60’s, the idea was …

Bumming around in Broome

By the time we left Karijini we were definitely hankering for a shower and as we made our way towards Broome, we decided to stop for the night at Indee Station.

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 …

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 …

All aboard for Peterborough – toot toot!

After our wet start in Broken Hill, we proceeded to Peterborough where we spent 2 nights at the Peterborough Caravan Park. The girls were happy as there was a pretty little park with a big playground next door and heaps of space to finally get the bikes off the bike rack for their first ride …

It’s all for you

To my gorgeous girls, Billie and Asher, We're done! It has now been a year since I posted my first post on this blog and made the commitment to share something everyday.  365 days worth of sharing!!! It was a struggle at the end, I won't lie.  Not because I didn't want to do it, but with …
