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.

New Norfolk 29 January – 2 February 2008

The drive up the Derwent valley back to New Norfolk was quick - nothing seems far in Tassie! We had a relaxing time on the river in New Norfolk at the caravan park. They gave us the whole cricket ground as an unpowered site to ourselves and Peter was content using a hose to wash and polish the motorhome! Just as we decided to leave, we realised there was a motorhome rally next door on a very nice spot on the river. After saying we were not the types to join in, we decided to attend the rally to give it a second chance. It was not too bad and we learnt a few new things about motorhomes and met some road acquaintances yet again!
We went back to the abandoned Derwent Hospital and picked lots of blackberries and a bag of nectarines and peaches! It was the first time we had had really sweet blackberries and we NOW know why they are so well liked!
