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.

Tullah 12 February 2008

We got up early to visit the museum in Zeehan, which houses a very impressive collection (in the former Mines School), with extensive information about mining. Kept us busy until lunch time by which time it was raining, misty and grey! Off onto new towns through lovely forests and lush, green, fern valleys. Stopped in Rosebery (the home of mining company Zinifex!), and onto Tullah. Rain kept coming down! Tullah has a beautiful location and is another old mining town that developed into a modern hydro workers town in the 70’s and is now in major decline. A local bought a house here 5 years ago for $17,000! We spent a nice evening before tea in the Chalet by a big log fire overlooking a perfect lake.
