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.

Geurie 14 -15 April 2005

Drove to Wellington for lunch. Wellington is a historic town on the banks of the Bell River. We enjoyed our walk around town and marvelled at the many large federation homes that retained their original appearances. However, we were disturbed to see that all the shops had bars and shutters across their windows and friends later confirmed it has a high crime rate. It has a large medium security jail there and a bit of fall out from that maybe. Though we were told the coming of the jail pushed real estate right up. Then headed off to Geurie, just south of Dubbo, to visit Steve and Wendy; old friends from Walgett. They have just sold their farm and bought an old house in Geurie. They made us very welcome and we enjoyed catching up on what they have been doing. Their son Brett and his partner Angie were just leaving on a big trip in their renovated camper. Steve and Brett stripped the camper to bare-bones and turned it into very comfortable camper accommodation.
