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.

Wagga Wagga 25 October 2005

Drove to Cootamundra, which is still a thriving country town. Stopped at Junee to visit Peter’s cousin and caught up with the family gossip. They have a liquorice factory there and we went on a tour of the workshop. We bought lots of liquorice and ate it when it was still warm – yum, yum! We then went on to see Mountie Christi – an old privately owned house that the owner has spent the last 41 years restoring. It was an amazing home stacked full of quality antiques. Stopped the night just outside of Wagga and met Alan who was just leaving on a 5 year trip around Oz. He had a 35 ft bus and was towing a car – rather him then me!

Hello, I just found your blog on the CMCA website. I have been writing my blog since 2002 and before we bought our motorhome. Our first was a Coaster and I vowed I would never tow a car. We then bought a Winnebago Leisure Seeker and vowed we would never tow a car. I bought a Virago and intended putting a rack on the back. One thing led to another and we now tow a Terios 4WD and left the Virago with my daughter. Towing makes very little difference to fuel consumption or driving up hills. It does make a difference when you accidentally find yourself in a dead end street with nowhere to turn. The benefit of having a car to explore while we are on the road far outweighs any negatives. We would not consider not towing the car as we travel. It has opened up too many possibilities for us.
Cheers
Frank
