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.

Toorbul 2 - 3 January 2009

After 8 hot days at the festival, we awoke to a cloudy morning and a more normal temperature. After saying goodbye to a few new friends including the Austrians, we stopped at the pretty town of Woodford. In the lovely little fruit shop with lettuce growing in boxes to be picked and sold fresh, the music suddenly came on very loud, the decorative lights turned on and the shop owner came out with a microphone and Elvis hairdo and burst into two Elvis songs. He was a great singer and the shoppers all stopped and clapped as he bowed and turned off the lights and then everyone went back to buying fruit and veg. He obviously loves Elvis and the d├ęcor on the walls suddenly made sense.
We decided to head to the coast for relief from the heat. However we made a few mistakes with navigation and ended up at the closest town, Donnybrook where we stopped by the water for lunch and a swim. We then moved onto the next town, Toorbul, a small isolate coastal village opposite Bribie Island and only 60km from Brisbane. There was a nice council caravan park that was very new, clean, well spaced out and quiet. We were very surprised to get in and enjoyed 2 nights of power and a chance to get all of the festival washing and dust out of our system. The weather remained cooler and very liveable!
