A fascinating look at historic Geraldton

So here we are, in Geraldton where we've spent the past few days catching up with Corey's Aunt and cousin, getting our car serviced, catching up on well overdue blog posts (limited phone range has made it sooooo hard!) and immersing ourselves in the history of a prolific shipwreck coastline. I had in my mind …

Catching up in Perth

We’ve said a couple of times how meeting people has been one of the best aspects of our trip so far. We’ve been lucky to meet some fabulous people so far, some of which we know we will keep in touch with long after our trip has finished. Bill and Belinda and their family are …

Margaret River Magic

Unlike Pemberton (which ended up being an awesome surprise), Margaret River was definitely on our must-do list. We had heard that it was a fabulous area to explore and so we ended up booking into Conto Campground, approximately 20km south of Margaret River township for four nights. Recently renovated, Conto Campground was very roomy with …

Tranquility in the Southern Forests

There is just something special about canopies that reach for the sky and stand majestic in solidarity, don't you think? I’ve been a big fan of forests for a long time as my million pics from Tassie would attest to. What can I say, there’s just something about trees that I adore. This trip has …

Down at the farm

Throughout one’s life, you meet people who become fabulous friends and even though they might move away from the vicinity of your day to day life, the friendship remains strong. This is definitely the case with my wonderful friend, Gemma. We met in Mildura, were both involved in numerous committees together for a few years …

Life’s grand at the Cape (le Grand)

Ok, so I’ll put this out there up front. We’ve got a new contender in our top 3 favourite places! Prior to arriving at Cape le Grand, our top three consisted of: Bay of Fires (Tas) Minnie Water (NSW) Flinders Ranges (SA) I haven’t quite figured out whether Minnie Water or Flinders Ranges has dropped …

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 …

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 - …

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 …
