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.

Gympie 18 June 2015

Had a great time exploring Gympie. Peter’s family had a farm just south of Gympie and his grandfather is buried in the local cemetery. Unfortunately he died dirt poor as he missed out on the riches generated by the gold rushes. Unlike most Queensland towns, Gympie is not laid out in neat grids, but rather follows the meanderings and hilly goat tracks first established during the gold rush – it makes you appreciate the GPS (when it isn’t sending you up a step cul-de-sac)! Camped on the southern edge of town, but found we were surrounded by ferals and resolved to move on in the morning.
