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.

Bendigo 15 - 16 Nov 2013

Had a beautiful sunrise over the lake and then set out for Rushworth, another small historic gold mining town not far down the road. Had a lovely sponge cake and coffee at the local bike/café. Then onto Bendigo for a massive swap meet at the showground. We were going to camp at the showground but there were so many stalls there already that we camped on a paddock nearby. href="" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;">
Saturday morning saw Peter at the swap meet (with thousands of others) all looking for the unusual object of their heart’s desire. Heather was less keen – she thought it was too blokey, with a lot of the stalls selling vintage car parts to other hairy blokes! However amongst the 2,000 odd stalls, there were lots selling collectables, books, magazines and antiques to keep the most jaded person enthralled for hours and we picked up a lovely tea set and some car parts for the Humber.
