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.

Beverley 22 November 2006

Left our beautiful rock and drove through the wheat belt across to the coast. Passed through a small agricultural town, Quirarding, with only 750 people and a really old fashioned 1960s atmosphere. Really tidy, trim gardens and lawns with lots of civic pride - way greater than its size and lots of big machinery shops with big shiny tractors.
Moved on through masses of locusts (they are getting very thick in the middle of the wheat belt) to the next town, Beverley, with much the same atmosphere. We enjoyed walking up and down the street, everyone was very friendly and we were given lemons and good advice on staying in the park near the river. The evening was hot and the forecast was for high 30os inland and high 20os on the coast. So it was time to move west! (Cooler!) The WA people complain of the same confusion in reverse when they go to the eastern states!
