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.

Gordon 14 December 2007

We drove through Hobart as we wanted to explore the area south of Hobart to find the
best spot to have Xmas and show Katie, Carl and Laura some untamed places. We were impressed by all the water around the suburbs. We drove through the main centre and past the harbour with no traffic problems. Within minutes we were climbing a huge mountain out of the city into bush. We marvelled that we were five minutes from the GPO and in bushland. What we hadn’t understood was how hemmed in Hobart is by the mountains and the sea!
We explored southern coastal areas and towns. We took the car across to Bruny Island and had a lovely afternoon exploring much of it. No place to free camp there though, although we were not surprised as we haven’t found many free spots around Late sunsets and long dusk allowing us to keep exploring and we finally camped on a lovely headland with a few others in a very cool, grey, damp spot looking back on to green hills.
