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.

Popanyinning (Cuballing) 30 – 31 December 2006

Came to another wonderful little historic town with a big old pub (many pubs are now called taverns) and a number of restored historic buildings and not much else. The locals said that this was the fastest growing shire in WA which has left us bewildered. If 50 new people came into a town of 50 residents this means they have had an increase of 100%! We moved up the Southern Highway and stayed 2 nights about four kms south of Popanyinning on a farm stay. It is on the river with no water in it (which is like most rivers we cross) and the ground is yellow and dry. The weather is warm with comfortable cool nights and 30 - 35deg days. We are close to a large number of poultry (with a predominance of roosters, whose crowing starting at 3am!), sheep and pigs! We have decided to attend the local dance in the Community Hall for New Year’s Eve as there is nothing else. We drove into town at lunch time to make a few phone calls and Peter counted 1-2-3… as he noted the number of houses! We viewed the decorated hall and thought of bush poetry! We will tell the tale later!
