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.

Holbrook 28 Oct 2013

In the morning we drove through the mist, along a windy and steep road and over the mountain to Moss Vale. We decided to head straight down to Victoria and then slow down, so we settled in for some highway driving. Stopped for the night at Holbrook, an old favourite. The bypass has just opened and Holbrook is now much quieter – the townsfolk appreciate it but the shop keepers said they lost some customers, although there are still plenty of craft and cafes open, so tourists are still stopping. Holbrook is named after Commander Holbrook who took a tiny sub up the Dardanelles during WW1. There is also a massive Otway sub in the main park. We have never really had a good look at it before, but this time we camped behind it and were able to have a butchers once everyone had gone home. It is a massive structure, 90m long that looks very incongruous resting between the rose bushes.
