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.

Perth 4 – 5 January 2007

Left Herron Point for Perth! First stop was Pinjarra, where we visited a most attractive precinct that surrounded an old 18 room homestead and wonderful open garden full of mature park-like trees. We drove through lots of forests coming into Perth’s outer suburbs and were surprised at the amount bushland within easy reach of the city.
Popped into see Phil, who is the WA CMCA representative, and then drove onto Perth to settle down for our stay. Found the Advent Park easily and were surprised by the big, empty, shady, ex-caravan park that now houses the Seventh Day Adventists Church. Of course there are signs up for no alcohol or cigarettes but not one for no meat!
On Friday morning, after picking up our mail, we set off to explore the city. Perth was a surprise after the small towns we had encountered. We loved the fact that the city hadn’t succumb to ‘shopping centre-itis’ but was vibrant, alive and very busy. We had a bit of trouble getting back but listened to our GPS and it showed us the best way home!
