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.

The Entrance 29 August 2011

We haven’t been travelling that much the past 2 years, but we had made up our mind that we would start now or finish up our musings. We are conscious of how quickly life seems to be charging along and we have seen some of our friends that have left it too late to do anything, so we stepped into the breach once more and planned a trip up north. This time we decided to take Nicky, so we will see how we go with a dog. Had an unexpected amount of work to do around the motorhome to get it ready and so we didn’t leave until Monday morning. Laura is home at the moment (between travels) and had gone up to Sydney for a reunion, so we organised to meet her at Tuggerah. As we were already off the highway, we decided to continue on and stop at The Entrance. Like most of the north coast, it is quickly morphing into a ‘resort destination’, with McMansions replacing the fibro shacks of our youth – progress I guess. We stopped at a camp right on the water and decided to go for a stroll along the lake, however we were accurately dive bombed by a pair of nesting plovers, so we retreated and walked along the river and then back along the beach. There was a 4 story deserted mansion positioned right on the sand dune and when we asked a local how it was allowed to be built; he gave a wink and said it was who you knew in council! Went back to Jimmy and had a wine while we watched the sunset over the lake.
