    We were privileged to experience Uluru and Kata Tjuta in the rain in December 2011. This is an experience not to be forgotten! Now we have to return to see these wonders as everybody else apparently sees them; red, desert, sunset - all the things one expects in the Northern Territories.What a wonderful country! read more

    Camping trip to Grampian Ranges
    Many years ago my parents were visiting us in Melbourne when we decided to go on a camping trip to the Grampian Ranges. My mother, in her 70's was a bit wary of tenting, but found that with the right equipment we had a really comfortable and enjoyable trip. She commented that it was worth going camping just to see our dog enjoying the trip. We had many interesting and enjoyable camping trips while we lived in Australia read more

    It was interesting that the road signs for Camels are different in South Australia and Western Australia. South Australian Camels are drawn with the camel running, Western Australian camels are standing still.  (Waiting Awhile)     read more

    In 2009 my family of four embarked on our first family holiday in eleven years! We decided that the majestic South Island of NZ would be our destination of choice. To add to the adventure, my long suffering husband agreed to one of my well intended plans that we include a friend and her daughter. A large motorhome was hired, flights booked and an itinery designed to include all parties was constructed. As with all hoildays, well planned or otherwise, there are a few obsticles... read more

    Bucket list wish
    I need a holiday... I need a holiday with my kids. Our first family holiday and don't remind me that both boys are teenagers now or I'll be hearing Mr Guilt knocking on my door (he's the guy holding a bucket with my bucket list on it and chortling weirdly as he tips my list down the drain). "Think you'll go on holiday," he says, "forget about your stupid bucket list," he adds nastily. "So what if there is a... read more

    We had a wonderful 30 day caravan trip travelling west of Queensland visiting wonderful rural towns including the camel races at Boulia.  The experiences we gained were all different some good and some not so good, like getting car and caravan bogged having to be winched out, having car tyre slashed whilst driving on sealed road and hitting an emu fortunately we managed to slow down  so no damage to car or emu.  We enjoyed camp fires with camp oven... read more

    Dads Legacy
    As a kid my Dad would put us all in the old Fairlane and hit the road. We would drive from Melbourne to Cairns, through all conditions, even over flooded briges making sure we filmed it all on the Super 8. He loved the adventure emparting his extraordinary knowledge of the bush to us. Always pointing out things along the way, quietly educating my sister and I. "Thats wheat, look that is Lucerne" or "look in the air, that is... read more
