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.

Limestone Creek 3 September 2006

Fathers Day! Laura left some Sol beer which seems to be a great idea around these parts! i.e. the beer! Set off for Katherine after we had stopped in at a mechanic to get new parts for the air hose. The guy lived in a remote area near the falls and was quite happy to help on Fathers Day and made up the part from his bits. He was curious as to where we got his number! The phone book! Very hot and less pleasant weather now. We are probably a bit behind the main crowd, which is good but if we were a month earlier the climate would be better. Did the grocery shop next (standard Woolies and Coles all around Oz by the way) and drove straight out onto the western journey. An Aboriginal guy knocked at our door in the carpark and asked if we would like to buy a boomerang. We declined as we did not need a second hand, plywood, made in Japan one for $20! Unusual to be approached - can’t say he didn’t try! Stopped the night at a bush camp with a few other people, one couple coming from the opposite direction and happy to give a few pointers on what lies ahead. This is always a great source of information and we, too, love to give out tips.
