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.

Woomera 27 May 2006

Stocked up at Woolies with some nice goodies as if we were going to the centre of Australia!! Left Port Augusta at lunch time and drove on to Woomera. As my brother-in-law told me it took 5 min to drive around - we tried to make it last longer but couldn’t. Woomera is owned by the Dept of Defence and has a surreal lonely feel to it with lots of empty street and houses. It was originally a town of 7,000 people but now has only 350 people left. We did spend an hour in the museum which was very interesting. We have to come back on Monday for some mail so maybe it will be more alive during the week. We are going on to Roxbury Downs so we drove out of Woomera and found our selves in the middle of barren treeless landscape and just stopped in the middle of it and watched another fantastic sunset that glowed for over an hour after it went down. We wondered if we were looking at the sun in WA!! Spend our evenings reading a lot and love to get back to the latest novel. We like to get the Sat paper and are getting to enjoy The Australian after many years of The Saturday Morning Herald. Tonight we have ABC reception so we might “veg” out on it. Eating too well though not putting on weight (YET!!).
