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.

Julia Creek 27 – 30 July 2014

Drove onto Julia Creek to catch up with our friends Tony and Ali, who were hosting the free camp at Julie Creek. They had to organise each campsite and Julie Creek is a small village of about 500 people, who are making a big effort to attract the grey nomads to stay for a few days. The campsite is situated around a bore feed lagoon and it is very pleasant if you can get a camp on the water. We had a great happy hour with a sing-a-long and then the next night went into town for a dinner organised by the locals. For a small town, the locals have made it very attractive to attract travellers. Had a few drinks and an enjoyable dinner in the local pubs and talked to the local Blaze-Aid coordinator. Blaze-Aid allocates volunteers to farmers who are struggling with the 2 year drought and gives them a helping hand. The up-shot was that we volunteered to help out on a property!! Fingers crossed it will work out.
