Mar 23, 2013 - Nation's Capital
A couple of weekends ago, we drove to Canberra, the nation’s capital, to visit a friend we haven’t seen in some years. Canberra is home to the Old and New Parliament houses, The Australian Mint, National Gallery of Australia, National Library and many museums. Little bit of history - In 1901, Sydney and Melbourne both wanted to be chosen as the spot for the capital. It was agreed that a new location needed to be found as no-one could decide between Sydney and Melbourne. The name for the new capital city was supposedly taken from the...Jump to full entry
Mar 7, 2013 - Oz Part 2
Oz Part 2 – This week we’ve been doing typical touristy things. The girls have been itching to see a kangaroo (a roo as they are affectionately known here). So, we had a couple of choices: to go up north a bit and see them (maybe) in the wild or to go to the Australian Reptile Park. We chose the latter. The park is a privately family owned business started in the 60’s. It receives no money from the Australian government. The park is home to reptiles, spiders (including the famous and deadly black-funnel spider), and many indigenous mammals...Jump to full entry

Nov 13, 2012 - The Entrance: NSW Central Coast
The Entrance: 13 - 15 Nov 2012 Our final destination before heading home! We were very excited to get to The Entrance as we were meeting up with Linda's mum, dad & sister Sue for 3 days before heading home. Jesse & Bronte were so excited to see Nana & Pa that they nearly knocked them over when they hugged them. We took advantage of staying on the lake and fished everyday, catching quite a few bream. Unfortunately none were legal size & all had to be thrown back or fed to the local pelicans & ducks. The Entrance is internationally recognised...Jump to full entry
