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.

Craigburne Dam (Colebrook) 3 January 2008

Another fine day breaking the pattern of cool changeable days. We travelled north on a minor road and enjoyed watching farmers making hay while the sun shone. Explored a few tiny towns on the way and chatted to an old lady in Campania who was born there and married someone from there! Settled at Craigburne Dam, a short distance from Colebrook. You wouldn’t believe it was in Tassie – it is a hot day, the landscape is dry and brown and the dam is well down on the normal level. It was very quiet and we were surrounded by sheep and cattle. The wind came up, blowing a lot of dust around which, with the dry yellow grass, made us think we were WA or SA -the fact it is in drought can not be disputed by that appearance.
