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.

Terramungamine 16-17 April 2006

As we had the luxury of no water restrictions, we washed Jimmy, then said goodbye to Steve and Wendy and continued on our trip. Stopped for lunch at Dubbo and Peter showed Heather some of the worst places hit by the Dubbo wind storms. We then headed up to Terramungamine Reserve and camped by the Macquarie River. This is an enormous reserve with tranquil views to the river. As it was such a pretty spot, we decided to stay a few days. Scrounged up some wood and had a warming campfire both nights. Practiced cooking both evening meals on the open fire with great success ready for more bush camping off-road in the future. The stars were bright but soon dampened by a wonderful full moon rise each night. All the wildlife night noises were interesting and intriguing. We thought of feral pigs, wombats and possums as a minimum. Wonderful flocks of white cockatoos flying up and down the river in the morning that could not be photographed due to the sheer volume and speed. A very interesting aboriginal rock area on the river bank with many ancient grinding grooves was a special find. It made you reflect of life in a previous time with a gentle feeling due to the pureness of the task. Stone on stone.
