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.

National Folk Festival, 1 – 6 April 2010

This is the major folk festival in Australia, with a great variety of music, dance, workshops and food. As volunteers, we had to do a bit of work and missed a bit of music, but it was an incredible festival with every type of music to listen to. The venues were organised around the showground and there was enough space to ensure you could listen without hearing other music. Folk Festivals tend to take a wide-ranging approach to music, so as well as folk music there were blues, jazz, roots, bluegrass and country. We caught up with Campbell the Swaggie, who we have meet all around Australia – often in the most obscure places. Although we both got a touch of flu, we still had a great time and intend to come again.
