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.

Gooloogong 12 September 2015

Unlike nearly every other country town we have visited, Forbes does not claim to be the birthplace of anyone famous (although Ben Hall the bushranger was shot nearby), have Australia’s biggest sheep/pineapple/opal nor was it the start of any great political movement – it is just a small country town that has managed to retain its colonial heritage while managing to keep the town alive. Peter got up early to take some photos of the graceful public buildings that decorate the town.
We then drove through more colourful country and stopped at Gooloogong. This is a small village that allows you to camp right in town and is appreciated by travellers. Unfortunately there was a bush wedding in the hall next door but it wasn’t too noisy and finished about midnight.
