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.

Redcliffe 13 – 16 January 2008

We stopped at Redcliffe, a northern section of Brisbane on the water across from Stradbroke Island. We arrived about 6pm and had only just stopped when a lovely lady from a group of motor-homers in a small rally invited us to their BBQ which was minutes away from being ready. We really enjoyed it and participated in their raffle winning two gifts! After tea we went to explore the place and were surprised to find it to be very attractive. We really began to enjoy the area as we explored the foreshore. The sense of Kiama and Manly was reinforced by the lovely sea breeze that even made the evenings feel cold! There are a number of nice surrounding suburbs on the water too. We took our morning tea, lunch and dinner by the water. The BBQs were great and the settings very pleasant. We discovered a great swimming pool on the beach that was a large resort style pool. It is huge and very enjoyable to swim in. The water was warm, clean and salty and we managed to swim twice daily and stretch out our aging joints. We decided to free camp on the water at the boat ramp at nearby Woody Point on the last night and watch the sunset. It was very beautiful and so good to be right on the edge!
