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.

Viveash Reserve (Toodyay) 18 – 19 November 2006

Got up early for some more delicious bread from the bakery and then headed south, dodging the large road trains that all seemed to heading north, full of mining equipment. It is really strange to be so close to Perth after being 1,000 – 2,000kms away for so long. We are now starting to measure our travelling in hours rather then 400 – 500km away. Toodyay was a fascinating village going back to the early days of WA. Visited the old Newcastle Goal that is an excellent museum. The goals are really creepy (this one had a little hole for a window that was the size of a shoe box at ceiling height) and gave Heather nightmares. In every town they are always one of the few solid things left and are often turned into museums. The last one in Geraldton had a little local craft shop in each cell!We headed out of town looking for somewhere to stay and stumbled on a great little spot down on the Avon River. It was so peaceful we thought we would stay two nights until we read about a folk festival not far away this weekend. It was too late to go that night so we will get up early for the last day of the festival.
