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 18 – 22 September 2014

Had a long drive for us – from Mackay to near Rockhampton – a pretty but tiring trip. In the morning we camped at Kershaw Gardens, a free camp right in the middle of the city. We had stayed at Rocky for a few weeks last year, so we knew our way around. Rocky is another large town with a thriving shopping mall out of town and a mouldering CBD – rather sad to see all the old heritage buildings decaying. Went out with a few friends to a local pub that has a rodeo out the back - a lot of fun and remembered us of Quamby. We decided to go to a Sri Lankan Festival put on by the local Sri Lankan community but regrettably it turned out to be more of an amateur concert and we (along with a lot of the audience) left at interval. However we enjoyed the dance costumes and the enthusiasm of the performers and their audience. We drove out of town to Woolwash Lagoon for a few days but unfortunately it rained (for the 2nd time this trip) as we got there. We still enjoyed ourselves and had a great time observing the wet land birds.
