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.

Maldon 12 Dec 2005

In the morning, we drove down to Chewton to visit Aunty Joan, Trudy and her children – Devon and Jessica. Joan lives in a lovely little cottage in an old mining village and has a delightful garden, which she manages in spite of the severe water restrictions. After lunch, we went onto Castlemaine, another old gold mining town. Castlemaine had a number of interesting Victorian buildings, as well as an amazing restoration centre. Peter had never seen so many bits and pieces for our home – he only wished it were closer to us! Drove onto Maldon and camped at Butt Reserve – went up to the lookout and had a remarkable 360o view of the surrounding area.
