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.

Valley of the Giants (Walpole) 18 December 2006

First thing on Monday, Peter had to go back to the dentist for his filling to be filed smooth. Just as Peter was to leave he found a flat tyre on the car. The locals were really lovely and offered a lift; however, with all the things to do we didn’t get away til noon. Headed down through a series of forests and national parks – very attractive and a real contrast to the sparse vegetation up north. Didn’t spend much time in Walpole, which is an ordinary village beside a beautiful large lake. The sky was grey, the weather cool and it was amazing to see winter flowers out in the planter boxes. Pansies, stocks and poppies! We moved onto a quiet campspot near the Tree Top Walk turnoff. Lovely birds and plants, with cattle mooing in the hills.
