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.

Tammin 19 January 2007

Continued through another small village to settle at Tammin for the night. The small towns and villages echo the once prosperous farming and gold settlements that are becoming forgotten and empty. The wheat and sheep production seems to dominate the whole landscape. Stopped at the oval and walked down to the pub to have a drink and “dinner” (pizza) with the locals. The village had an interesting hydrology model demonstrating issues of the soil salinity and some of the methods being used to reduce it. Whilst travelling in these areas we are seeing many salt lakes and creeks filled with dead tree stumps.
