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.

Tintaldra (Charles Lagoon) 16 November, 2009

Explored the little town of Corryong. Found the Op Shop, the museum and the grave of Jack Riley (AKA -The Man from Snowy River). The museum was good but too many little bits and made it overwhelming. They are acquiring a knitted rug that a local made as a prisoner of war with the Germans. They showed it on DVD and it was amazing. The man unravelled all sorts of things to make it and it is a big map of Oz with all the state emblems in colours.
Headed west towards the Murray River and intended to stop at Towong, however it was crowded with canoeists, so we went onto Charles Lagoon. We camped on a large green paddock across from NSW cows lowing across the fast flowing Murray overlooking the majestic River Gums – a peaceful spot.
