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.

Rockhampton a

On Wednesday we drove out to the coast and visited villages along the beaches. Keppel Sands is a quiet and isolated spot and reminded us of the south coast in the 1960's. The whole area is still very pretty, however there has been lots of development in the past few years and except for Keppel Sands, it has made it difficult to find a place to camp. Yeppoon and Emu Park in particular are developing into mini Surfers Paradise, with lots of housing developments springing up however there is an ambivalent attitude towards "southerners" that makes you think you are a fatted cow waiting to be milked. We finally found a caravan park on the beach at Yeppoon, but it is very tight, so we will have to think about where we want to stay.
