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.

Orroroo 11 May 2006

Just as we were about to leave a fellow turned up to chat. It was an interesting chat – after he asked us why we had not called in at his vineyard he told us he had a number of vineyards in the area and explained how the large supermarkets are squeezing the producers dry. He chatted about his family and his wife Heather (Joan)!!! He asked us to get a glass (10am) and let us try his special Imperial Muscat from 1860 vines still on his land. He then asked us to produce a bottle that he generously filled with this SMOOTH drop!!!! We are hardly game to drink it; but we will. We have his card! Drove onto Jamestown, an historic town that is supported by the local agriculture. Picked up our mail at Orroroo and camped outside of the town for the night.
