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.

Binalong 4th October

Left home late due to the inclement weather and headed for a music festival at Goulburn. However, one look at the wet, cold, conditions convinced us to head to the drier western part of the state. We thought we might head to Lake Mungo NP as the times to go there are limited in summer and the depth of winter. We stopped for the night at the well known Stan Galloway Memorial Car Park in a village called Binalong right next to the Mechanics Institute. This was one of a series of very quaint villages we found where time seems to have stopped. Each one was a few hundred people. One boasted there were 70 residents and about 300 around the district! Saw a few comical outback scenes were a man in his slippers drove his lawn mower up the main street to shop. Another scene where 2 old codgers stopped their car in the middle of the road to have a chat with another farmer and then left the car there whilst one was in the shop. Well? With only 70 people only town why not?

You can see our new dog (Nicky) in the photo. He is a Havanese and has a lovely nature. So far he has been good so fingers crossed.
