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.

Wangaratta 28 – 31 October 2005

Arrived at Wangaratta in the morning – a pleasant country town of about 17,000 people. We are looking forward to the Wangaratta Jazz Festival, claimed to be the best in Oz! The festival was very well organised and attracts about 30,000 visitors. With so many bands to listen to, we had a hard time choosing whom to see. On Friday night, we caught up with some friends from Kiama, who are regulars here. There were some fantastic bands that covered the whole jazz and blues spectrum. Unfortunately, it rained heavily on Saturday and Sunday and it made moving around very difficult, however we still managed to hear about 15 bands over the 2 days. Monday was much drier and we rode the bike out to Milawa to catch some blues at the cheese factory. The ‘Bargain Queen’ found a fabric factory that had an outlet shop and proceed to buy half their wares. The only problem was we were on the motorbike and so had to balance assorted parcel as we struggled home.
