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.

Fingal 4 December 2007

Picked up Sue from the airport. Lovely sunny day with the usual cool breeze. Morning tea in the truck and then Sue and Heather off in the car to the Gourmet Sauce Factory! Yum! Then on to Woolmers to show Sue the wonderful roses. It was hard to admit but the roses had deteriorated a lot in a week. On reflection it must have been the heavy rain the previous days. They said it had been a very dry November hence the best rose display in a long time! We left Evandale midafternoon for east coast. Stopped at Fingal in a nice rest area with free power!! First ever !!! Meet one of the locals called Ron who lived there all his life and had a chat. Ron came up later and offered us a large bunch of rhubarb and we cooked it straight away for breakfast!
Sue and Heather walked around the very sleepy town and wondered how you could every spend any money in the town. The takeaway shop had a sign on the window saying We are not a bank. Don’t ask for credit etc. Looked like no money in this town. Enjoyed Sue’s company as we did on all the following nights!
