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.

Swansea 7 December 2007

Woke up to a cold, wet and windy morning and set off for Coles Bay and Freycinet NP for breakfast. Coles Bay was a small town set on a pretty bay. We had a look at the national park, as we were keen to go on the walk to Wineglass Bay but it was too wet to go on the hike. The weather forecast for the day was sunny and 25deg. Not a sign of it! The thunder and lightning finished off any possibility. Instead we decided to drive down to Swansea, which is one of the older farming communities. We found a caravan park with a fantastic view of Freycinet and the Hazards. Sue and Heather trawled the shops and the beach and met Peter on his adventures to all the old sites. We enjoyed a really spectacular sunset of soft mauves and blues on the mountains. The rain cleared up slowly over the afternoon.
