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.

Orange 12 April 2006

In the morning, we said goodbye to Bev and set off for Orange. While the countryside is getting drier, there is still plenty of grass in the paddocks. As we drove closer to Orange, we began to see more of the characteristic golden yellow poplars. Orange was ablaze with autumn colours – reds, oranges, yellows and browns. Stopped in Orange to visit Lillian and Keith who put on a great afternoon tea in the warm glow of the afternoon sun. Caught up about fun times in the past, admired the old house and all the collections so like my favourites.
We then headed out of town to visit Peter’s cousins – Brian and Margaret. It was great catching up with the family history They have built their house overlooking a fantastic and beautiful vista. They had a roaring fire for us, though it wasn’t as cold as it had been. Brian and Margaret explained that snow was a certainty and they received heavy snowfalls at least 4 times during winter. They have grown beautiful deciduous trees in the short time they have been there and the whole feel is very refreshing and special.
