Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Grafton 8 July 2005

We drove along the highway, through many small villages that front the Clarence River. This was very interesting to Peter, as he worked up here for the SES during a number of major floods. It seemed surreal to him driving through towns that he had last seen underwater. Stopped at Grafton to see old friends – Jill and John, who have been living in Grafton for 19 years. Heather caught up with all the gossip with Jill, while John cooked a wonderful meal flavoured with kaffir lime and served in a lovely room lit by many candles. John is a great cook – a man's work is never done!!! We had one of the bargains of our trip when we came across a 2nd hand book sale- we bought about 50 books for $10! This should keep us in reading material for a year. We think we will have to keep on travelling just to read them!
