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.

10 Mile Rock 5 February 2007

Woke up to another cold and windy day so heading north for a bit of warmth seems like the right direction! Had to go back to Norseman before the big turn to the east. We can’t believe that we are finally about to cross the Nullarbor – it is a milestone in our travels! We ended up not leaving Esperance until lunchtime, as we had an oil leak and Peter had to get some more oil and a new oil filter – no sense in getting caught as it 2,000km to Adelaide. Stocked up with fruit and extra water for the Nullarbor.
What surprised us as we headed east was the thick vegetation along the road – we expected semi-desert but there have been dense shrubs and tall trees along the way. Stopped at a roadside camp for the night and had a chat with some fellow travellers who have just started their first trip in their new vehicle. We felt like old pros giving out some basic advice!
