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.

Grigson Lookout 14 November 2006

On Tuesday we spent most of the morning chatting to our fellow travellers about encouraging councils to put in more rest areas. The upshot was that we devised a letter to give to councils that pointed out the benefits of having motorhomers in their town. Stopped at a lovely lookout with 360deg view across the sand dunes and salt lakes. There was one special moment as we watched three emus walking across the salt lake in the distance. The vegetation looked very special. It is of a low level (a few metres high) and just bursting with life. Everything seemed to have a flower on it and though not very spectacular the perfume was sweet nectar plus. The hum of the bees was loud and everywhere. Very big ones buzzed us and kept us on our toes though it did not feel like an attack! Up really early in the morning in the half light, after a very quiet night, the buzzing recommenced and filled the morning air. The information leaflet said there were 900 different plant types here! It really felt dense and rich and makes you realise what was lost in clearing land, especially where it was then abandoned as useless! Sounding GREEN? So would you!
