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.

Wangaratta Races 2 – 3 November 2009

Did some house keeping and then drove out to the racecourse to camp for the next 2 nights. Headed down to Milawa for lunch at a local cheese factory and listen to Hats Fitz, a raw (and loud) blues singer. Caught up with some people we knew from Kiama and then friends of ours (Judy and Bill) rang up and said they were only a few kms away! Ended up back in Jimmybago for some champagne and nibbles and a catch up chat. Next morning was Melbourne Cup so we decided to do it in style by buying temporary members pass that allowed us to access all areas of the racecourse, including the private members lounge – much more comfortable than previous years. We had a great day at the races (admiring/ridiculing other peoples fashion sense) and managed to score a few winners, including the Melbourne Cup winner. After the last race, we retired for more drinks to the motorhome to watch the drunks stagger about, looking for their vehicles – great fun!!
