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.

Broome 4 October 2006

Heather arrived back to Broome to 33deg and really felt the difference. After complaining that Melbourne was cold it seemed surreal. It was great to catch up with the family and friends in Kiama. The flight over Australia only took about 4 hours to place you in another world. From the air you can not imagine driving through it all as it looks so isolated and inhospitable. There seems to be thousands of salt lakes and continuous sand dunes. Flew over Alice, the East and West McDonnell Ranges and Uluru and it was difficult to comprehend them from the air after seeing them close up. Both images are true - the remoteness and aridness from the air and the intimate beauty of all the plants and animals close up.
Celebrated Heather’s return with a meal out at the only restaurant with a view of the sunset over the water. It will take a bit to get back to our relaxed travelling lifestyle!
