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.

Emmdale 25 April 2006

Got up early to visit the Weather Station. While we were a bit dubious about the tour, it turned out to be a fascinating visit and we had a greater insight in how the Met Bureau collects information. The highlight of the tour was the release of the helium weather balloon at 0915 that is simultaneously discharged around the world. The guy said the clouds we were looking at were about 23,000 metres and the balloon would go past that.
We attended the Cobar Anzac Day March. It was a real country town event with lots attended considering the size of the place. The main street was cut across by a rush of orange water from a burst water main early in the morning. While it was a small ceremony, it was quite moving. Set off for Emmdale Roadhouse, however it was not very exciting, so we ended up at a campsite further down the road.
