Around the block again - well almost - Kakadu.

We only have a short time in Kakadu this trip.  So far the highlight has been the 1 hour flight over the escarpment, Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls, which we did at lunch time yesterday.

We are now at Mardugal campground.  It is hot, but cooling down.  It was over 37 degrees a little earlier, now down to around 35, but is a mere 31.7 in the van.  The guys have been trying to have a sleep.  I think Eric is still asleep (he parked his car in the shade - our caravan is in the sun to get sunlight on the solar panel) but Ron has given up.

I have a few photos to post - not sure what they look like as it is a bit glary in the van - we have all the windows and most of the curtains open to catch whatever breeze there is, so not easy to see the photos on the screen.  The flight was a bit bumpy, and at times it was rather hard to hold the camera still, so some of the photos have movement in them.  I hope I have chosen ones without movement, but I can't be sure.  Anyway, here's hoping.

First up, some photos of the flight.  We flew south along the escarpment


As you can see, Jim Jim Falls still had water in them.

A couple of photos of Twin Falls from different angles.  That beach looks so empty - it was wall to wall people when we were there, and we could hardly find a place to sit down to have lunch.





After the flight we drove up to Cahill's Crossing.  This is looking down river, but the water is flowing upstream as the river is tidal.



And then, after lunch did the Bardejilidji walk.  These formations are sandstone.



And ended the day at Ubirr for the sunset.  Unfortunately there was too much smoke from fires, which obscured the clouds, so the sunset wasn't as good as we hoped.

On our way to Mardugal this morning we called in at Nourlangie Rock to do the art walk and lookout walk there, then went on to Nawurlandja Lookout - a bit steeper than the other lookout - which gives a beaut view of Nourlangie and Anbangbang Billabong.  Unfortuately the Billabong is still closed - it is a lovely walk.  The road into Jim Jim and Twin Falls is also still closed.

We have one night here, to be close to Yellowwater, as Eric is doing the dawn cruise.  We did it last time - had planned to do it again, until we learned it now costs $95!  So, been there, done that, don't need to spend that much money to do it again.  Tomorrow we move down to Gunlom Falls for a couple of nights before leaving Kakadu.

We have been fortunate.  We had thought originally that because of our departure delays we would miss out on seeing Jim Jim flowing, but it is still going strong.  On the other hand, a few of the places we have been to or are about to go to would have been closed had we left at the original planned time.  We met some folk at Mataranka who had just come down from Kakadu, and they said there were still a lot of mozzies around.  We have seen two, though Eric said he gets them in his canopy, and has had to sleep with the windows closed.  They say it has become cooler - well, up to now it has been quite pleasant, but it sure is hot here today.  However, I have a feeling Gunlom may be cooler.  I'm surprised at how relatively few people there are here - I was expecting full campgrounds, but although it is filling up here, now, the caravan park at Jabiru seemed to be half empty.

Margaret River to Mandurah.

We are heading north towards Perth, stopping in Mandurah for a couple of days before staying at our daughters place for a couple of weeks. 

Once you leave Margaret River and head north the highway is all there is passing through farmland and vineyards.  At Bussleton we stopped near the jetty to see how renovations were going.  They are still at it and are expected to finish in August 2010.   We had a coffee at the little cafe near the jetty.   The weather has improved markedly, with the sun shining from a blue sky. 

We bypassed Bunbury and Australind and followed the highway 1 signs to Mandurah.  Again, mainly farmland and conservation parks until you reach the outskirts.  Mandurah is like the Gold Coast of WA, lots of new housing, canals, marinas and beaches.  It is a very busy place, traffic is dense.

We booked into the Mandurah Tourist Park a Top Tourist affiliate about 10 minutes from the Town Centre.   Lots of shopping centres nearby.   Had lunch at Hungry Jacks so won't need dinner tonight.  This will be the last blog till we head off up north in a few weeks time.

Around the block again - well, almost



Our planned route.

After a number of delays and encounters with Murphy, we finally got away on 25th May.  Murphy continued to travel with us, but we pressed on regardless, and hopefully have lost him somewhere in the bush.  Ron's brother, Eric, is travelling with us.

As always, when travelling in a westerly direction, our first overnight stop is at Miles, where we stay with one of my cousins.  Next day we spent some time at the Big Rig in Roma, before overnighting at the Morven recreation grounds, where they not only provide travellers with toilets, but also hot showers - and all for free.  Nearly had a bad experience here.  Before pulling in to the campground we detoured to Tregole National Park to see the Ooline trees.  Walking along the loop track, I was reading aloud to the others from the info sheet and not looking where I was going, when Eric drew my attention to what I had just stepped over - actually, not just stepped over, but kicked.  It was a rather annoyed big brown snake - we think it may have been a Western Brown.  It's head was flattened, and it was acting rather aggressively, and decided to come towards me.  Fortunately it was a cool evening, and I think it must have been rather sluggish, or I'm sure it would have bitten me.

Longreach on the next night.  The campground at the waterhole had been closed, and still was only partly open.  The whole campground had been covered with water during the floods, and part of it was still a quagmire.  The grader was there, gradually opening up the campground.

The following night we stayed at Fountain Springs rest area, about 60km east of Mt. Isa.  Although this is usually quite a nice rest area, on this it left something to be desired.  The toilets ran out of water and could not be flushed, and seepage was coming up through the drain in the floor in the ladies, and neither toilet in there could be used.

We stopped at Barkly Homestead for one night before heading up to Cape Crawford - at last we were on new ground, never having been there before.  We managed to get out to Poppy's Pools that afternoon, though had we known it was 84km, not the 54km we had been told, we probably would not have attempted it.   The road was rough, and the 4WD section at the end was bumpy (to say the least), overgrown and narrow, and needed a few branches removed to get through.  No time to swim in the thermal pool, but did paddle the boat around to see the waterfalls.  At that time of day there was too much contrast to get good photos, but it really was quite spectacular in there.




Next day we drove to Borroloola, stopping off at Caranbarini on the way, where we did several of the walks.  They say this place is similar to the Lost City, but with smaller formations.  In any case it was quite spectacular.




In Borroloola we had lunch at the boat ramp beside the Macarthur River - a very pretty spot.  By the way, diesel at Cape Crawford was $1.98.9 cents a litre - in Borroloola it was $1.65!  We had been told it would be cheaper in Borroloola, but did not imagine there would be this much difference.  As you can imagine, we filled up in Borroloola.

We found the amenities to be fairly primitive at Cape Crawford.  We don't really mind primitive, but do like somewhere to keep our clothes and shoes dry, and a toilet without a basin leaves a bit to be desired.   However, we had a site on lush green grass - felt lovely with bare feet.

We arrived at Mataranka yesterday, and after lunch popped down to Bitter Springs for a swim.  The water is much deeper than it was when we were here eight years ago, and the nice clean sandy bottom now has a lot of plants growing on it.  Still, we enjoyed our swim.

Today has been a "rest" day - well, perhaps "make and mend" might be a better description.  At least it gave the guys a break from driving, and me from being chief cook and bottle washer (sorry, the guys do most of the washing up).  I did the washing, Ron repaired a leaking tap and Eric was able to successfully chase up a replacement tyre for the one he damaged going out to Poppys Pools.

Tomorrow we head for Kakadu for four or five days, which hopefully will include a flight over Jim Jim falls, which we are told are still flowing.

Pemberton to Margaret River

Whilst we were in Pemberton we did the Karri Forest Explorer self guided drive around the local attractions.  We ended up getting lost for about an hour in the Karri Forests north of town.  The cause was that one of the turn-offs was closed due to a tree blocking it. There are so many logging tracks out there that they call unsealed roads that if you make a wrong turn you end up hopelessly lost driving around in circles trying to find your way to the highway again.  Luckily we were saved just before the Navigator went into panic mode.  A bloke from Manjimup came along in his 4x4 towing a boat trailer to god knows where, but we pulled him over and told him of our predicament and he just told us to follow him....  We weren't that far from the highway, but we were going the wrong way backtracking.  So we were saved from  a situation that could have gone bad.   On the Monday we left Pemberton and drove through undulating farmland and forests to Manjimup and Bridgetown where we had a quick look around and then headed up the Brockman Highway towards Augusta and Margaret River.

About half-way  to Augusta from Nannup the car started playing up with all the rain and water on the road.  The ignition leads were arcing and the car was running rough.  We slowed down and managed to nurse the car to Margaret River where after booking in at the Tourist Park we found a mechanic to do some repairs by replacing the leads.  This seemed to fix the problem so we were able to do some sightseeing the next day , going to Cape Leeuwin and then returning along Caves Road where we looked at the Lake Cave, a large sinkhole in the forest.

Norseman to Pemberton

We have left Norseman and spent 3 days in Esperance on the coast checking out the scenery in between the rain showers and gale force winds.  We drove the Great Ocean Drive from town to the Pink Lake and saw some magnificent coastal scenery a wind farm  and a slightly pinkish lake.   This is the 3rd time we have visited Esperance so we did not do the Cape Le Grande National Park .  The weather was not what you would call ideal during the 3 days we were here.  We stayed at the Seafront CP amongst the trees.  The guys next door were woken one night with a large tree branch coming down in the wind.   Luckily no-one was hurt and the van and car only received superficial damage.  Pays to be insured!

We left Esperance and spent the night in Jerrimungup CP , so that we could watch the NRL Origin game.  Then we by-passed Albany and stopped a couple of nights in Denmark instead booking in at the River-mouth CP.  We have seen Albany before as well.  We did all the scenic drives and stopped  at Green's Pool and the Elephant Rocks in the William Bay National Park.   

Today we drove the 180kms to Pemberton via Walpole and Northcliffe, right in the heart of Karri Forest country.  We are staying here for 2 nights so we can have a proper look around.  We visited the Gloucester Tree , a 58 m tree topped with a Fire Lookout on top which can be reached by the bravehearted along a stairway of metal rods driven into the tree  years ago.   Unfortunately, my knee joints don't work like they used to so I only climbed the first 10 steps for a photo opportunity.   We watched as a group of British backpackers climbed to the top and back down again.     Tomorrow we will look at some more of the attractions around here and then on Monday we will head for Bridgetown.

Ceduna to Norseman

We left Ceduna and traveled through undulating farmland to Nundroo which is the western edge of the agricultural region of the Eyre Peninsula.  Beyond here is the Nullarbor Plain a vast treeless plain of salt bush and limestone.  Just down the highway from  Nullarbor Roadhouse is the turn-off to the Whale Watching Center where you can see the Southern Right Whales as they come close to the shoreline at the Head of the Bight, to mate and calf.  Further along the coast towards the border of SA/WA there are viewing areas near the Bunda Cliffs where the Southern Ocean crashes against them 100 meters below. There are numerous camping or rest areas along here where you can set up camp for the night and look at the stars and planets above after sunset.  The WA  Quarantine Station is very thorough when they search the van and vehicle.  No fruit, veggies or honey  are allowed.    At Eucla we visited the old Telegraph Station ruins which are slowly being swallowed up by the sand dunes.  On to Mundrabilla  , past Modini Bluff and up the Madura Pass  to look back on the vast flat plain below us.  Driving on we stopped for the night at Cocklebiddy Roadhouse.   Distances are great and days are long to drive from one point to the next.   The weather changes and we strike rain showers between Caiguna and Balladonia.  At Balladonia we look through the museum and see the Skylab debris on display.  More rain as we approach Norseman our next overnight stop.   At last we are able to replace the fruit and veggies at the local IGA store.  Tomorrow we go on to Esperance.

Port Broughton to Ceduna.

After a two day sojourn in Port Broughton we headed further north to Port Augusta where we refueled before heading west to Wudinna for the night.  We were told by the receptionist at Wudinna CP that there was a mouse plague around the place and that we should keep the door closed in the event we picked up some stowaways.  Walking to the amenities block after dark I could see a few mice scampering around the grounds.  In the morning it was foggy and cold.   We packed up and continued west towards Ceduna where we booked into the Shelly Beach CP for two nights.  This park is a good distance from the CBD and nice and peaceful.  We refueled the car and bought some groceries from the local Foodlands.  The weather has been holding good since we left Adelaide .  Talking to some other vanners at the park, the sun has been shining and they have been wearing shorts.  Thursday we head off towards the SA/WA  border, planning to do some 'budget camping' along the Nullarbor.

Gypsy Caravan Roams Into Beechworth

Thursday 13/05/10

We left for Beechworth from our home in Carrum Downs at 10 am. We stopped for lunch at the Avenal truck stop and  it's very easy to see why so many truckies stop here, the food was top notch. 

We arrived at Lake Sambell Caravan Park at about 2.30 pm and were warmly welcomed by members of the Gippsland Gypsies that had arrived earlier. By the time we had set up camp it was happy hour and happy it was, lots of laughs had by all, in the evening a board game was produced (Sequence) this was  also a lot of fun and with the usual stirring going on everyone enjoyed themselves. Oh did I mention it was COLD, many dollar coins were swallowed up by the heater in the camp kitchen. 

 

Friday 14/05/10 

We went for a walk to Beechworth, left the park at 9.00 am and arrived back again at 3.00 pm. The plan was to go to the famous bakery pick up a few things have a quick look around the town and back again, but when we went to the info centre we discovered  guided tours of the town were available, so off we went on the Ned Kelly tour followed by lunch and then onto the Gold Rush tour, both tours were very interesting and informative. Happy hour followed at 4 pm and then it was off to pub for dinner where a good time was had by all, the meal was good and the company excellent.

 

 

Saturday 15/05/10


The Beechworth Harvest Festival was in full swing and a reenactment of Ned Kelly's trial was on the agenda, so we all fronted up to the court house to witness this historical event only to find out that some of us would actually be part of the reenactment, volunteers were asked to play the parts of the judge, the prosecutor, the arresting constable, clerks of the court, witnesses , forman of the jury, members of the jury and of course Ned Kelly.This was a lot of fun but at the same time you could not help but feel a sense of history,  because all of those taking part were actually standing or sitting  in the very same place as those very famous and notorious people. 

 

Dinner was a soup kitchen with fresh bread sticks from the local bakery and desserts, credit must be given to ladies from the Gippsland Gypsies for this brilliant idea, it was just what the doctor ordered on a cold night and everyone enjoyed it very much as was evidenced by the amount of seconds being sought.

Sunday 16/05/10

Sadly, time to go home but not before a final get together over breakfast, which was the traditional bacon and egg rolls, yum. We had a fantastic weekend and would like to thank the Gippsland Gypsies for the warm welcome and hope to see you all in Barham.

Westward Ho!

G'day Guys,

Geraldine and I are off to the West for a few months doing the West Coast, Darwin, Alice and then maybe  FNQ.  All depends on how much money we have, lol!  Time isn't important!

Today we left home (Craigmore, S.A.) around 10am and travelled about 10 kms before I realised that we had left the cameras home, Both of us.  Well you just can't do a West Coast trip without the cameras. How else are we going to record our trip.  Back we go and discreetly park and rush into the house to pick up the items before sneaking away again in case someone saw us.

We stopped at Pt Wakefield for lunch and then headed towards Snowtown.  As we got closer I asked Geraldine if she would like to go to Pt Broughton for the weekend and then continue on Monday.  Answer in the affirmative, so we took a left turn and headed to Port Broughton instead.  This is what happens when you don't have an itinerary,  some where different and we haven't been here before either.

I woke Geraldine up , poor girl she was so tired, we go for a walk to the town jetty and wait for the sunset. The walk was pleasant, it's only about 600m from the caravan park.  We walk along the jetty and watch the fisher people trying to catch fish.  The tide was turning and starting to come in. Looked promising, more people came to try their luck.  We walked back to the beach, then the fish & chip shop in the main street.  With our paper wrapped fish & chips we walk back to the park adjacent to the jetty and eat while watching the sun set slowly in the west.  Afterwards we walk back to the van  park having experienced  a beautiful sunset.

So endeth the first day of travel, happy hour coming up soon, got to slow down.  Still got a few months to go before we are due back..

Future Plans

We are planning a trip to Lithgow in September - going via Port Macquarie and Taree.
We will then stay at Wallerawang (near Lithgow) for about two weeks and 'mind' our nephew.  His parents are going overseas and his big brother has just been signed for the RAAF.
We will then travel to Condobolin and visit my brother and his family (he is the new District Agronomist there) and then we will travel to Maryborough for the National meet.  Then head home to Victoria Point and await he arrival of our son from England.  He has been over there for 18 months at this stage.
This will be the first big trip that we will do with our Billaboong van. We were to take dlivery of it this month but there has been a delay at the factory and we have to wait a month :(

Morgan to Nuri

So we arrived at Nuri on Thursday 15th-18th April where we met up with other ACC members to have a great weekend and discuss the formation of another Branch in SA.   About 12 other vans took part with apologies from another 8 members.  A good turn out. 

Weekend included a mini tag along tour of the Barossa Valley and Swan Reach/Blanche town.

We also had a Roast night at the CP where we all contributed in the cooking.  Nancy and Geoff provided the vittles for the occasion.  On the Sunday morning we all had breakfast together at the BBQ area where Allan and Geoff provided the eggs and bacon,Yum! 

The meeting for the formation of the new branch went so well we even voted in a  branch committee  and hopefully that will get approval.  The next muster planned for the new branch will be in Moonta Bay in June, by then we should know if we have approval and a Name.

Most of us departed on the 18th for home or other parts.

We are now back home preparing for our trip to the West and Darwin in May.

Imbil weekend

G'Day all My wife Barara and myself just spent the ANZAC weekend with thw Family Firesiders at Imbil. What a great bunch of people who made us feel most welcome. This was our first tagalong since joining the club late last year. The weather was a bit iffiy the first day but came good the second day. Thanks to the plumb puding created by master chef nominees Helen & Rod McDonald, and assited in their endevours by trainee chef Stuart Scullett-Dean   we were most successful in gaining weight and sending the colesteral over the top.    A great weekend with a great bunch thanks for having us along

Our First Ever Camping Experience

 

Car packed, Trailer packed, dogs packed on the back seat, everything double checked and we are off to the Tarra Valley and the Best Friend Holiday Retreat for our first ever camping holiday.  We are excited and just a little nervous about the trip ahead  but can't wait to get there.

We have been to Best Friends many times before and know the hosts Ralph & Coralie very well, we have always stayed in one of the cabins until now. Ralph said he was going to organize the other campers to watch us set up our first ever camp site, happily this did not eventuate but apart from coping with a slightly uneven site the set up went quite well.

As usual we really enjoyed our stay all be it a short 3 nights. The dogs love it up there, the free roam areas allow them run wild and once they get on the trail of the many rabbits in the area they are off and running.

We enjoyed the company of our hosts for dinner on the night we arrived and I must say that the meal we had prepared ( Pickled Pork) the morning we left, courtesy of our new never been used before Eco Pot Thermal Cooker was melt in the mouth stuff, washed down with some nice wine it was a very pleasant evening.

Our first nights sleep in our camper was much more comfortable than we had  expected, although we are considering getting one of those egg shell mattress toppers to make it just that little bit softer.

The next day we went to Woodside Beach which is about 20 minutes drive from Yarram this is the start of the Ninety Mile Beach and is a free roam area for dogs, they can run to hearts content, when we were there apart form a couple of fishermen we had the beach to ourselves. Once the dogs were worn out it was back to the car and off to Port Albert for a fish and chip lunch..... yum. It was then into Yarram to pick up a few things that we had forgotten to bring with us. (So much for double checking)

 

The second and third nights we had a roaring camp fire going and it was really relaxing just sitting, watching the flames and staring up at stars, this was all new to us and we really enjoyed it.

Unfortunately all good things come to an end and it was time to pack up. The packing of the trailer seemed to go a little smoother this time and I guess the more we do it the better we will get. Time to hook up the trailer. A little bit to the right,  a bit more , back  a little bit,  a bit more, stop, that's it, no a bit more, stop.... phew.

All in all we had a great little holiday and can't wait for our next outing, bring on Beechworth.

Morgan To Nuri

Finally got away yesterday and travelled through Kapunda, Eudunda to Morgan on the Murray River.  Morgan is where the River takes a sharp turn towards the south.  Settled in to the CP without any problems.  They have a strange set up here with three sites in a row.  Two outer sites the vans point outwards, in the middle I have no idea. Strange. 

Meeting up with a few other people for the weekend before heading towards Swan Reach and then Nuriootpa.  At Nuri there will be a group of us discussing the possible formation of another Branch for SA.  If all goes well , there will be more info on that later.

Cheers,

Alby & Geraldine
