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.

Elmore (Aysons Reserve) 12 - 13 Nov 2012

Left Bendigo and headed up to Elmore Event Centre. Peter had a meeting with the manager to discuss the success of the centre, as he is trying to develop a similar festival/event centre for the Illawarra Folk Festival. They have over 50 hectares and hold large events up to 15,000 per day. Drove down the road to the Campaspe River and camped at Aysons Reserve. This is a lovely spot, with plenty of bird life and a large gum trees on the edge of the river. It was such a peaceful place that we decided to stay 2 nights. One of the interesting spots we found was right outside our motorhome. There was an old dead tree in the middle of the river and a number of pink galahs (as well as a ) had made their nests in the hollow limbs. We enjoyed watching the birds as they squabbled over the best nesting sites. Also saw a beautiful sunset over the river. This was one of the most relaxing spots we have found on this trip and reminded us why we enjoy travelling around Oz.
