Mar 20, 2018 - Home to Ceduna

Hitched the car and van up the night before, so we wandered down through the slumbering Village to get on the road as dawn broke. Had an hour's stop in Kellerberrin with Pete's Cousin, Eth and her husband Dave, before getting a move on to get to Norseman, for our first night's stop. 7+ hours driving today. An early getaway, and we were once more on the Eyre Highway - a road we love travelling - and 7 hours later, we pulled in to Eucla 12 kms from the WA/SA border, for Night No2. Third early start - oh, so NOT me!! - and 5+ hours later,...

On The Road 2018

Feb 20, 2017 - Ceduna

19 February Ceduna A better night than the last, the wind had changed direction and eased, but it was very cool, only 19degrees when we emerged. Breakfast, showers, pack up trailer and car and we were on our way just after 9.30, a bit of a record for us, especially as we had the awning to dismantle as well. Back on the Flinders Highway and heading north. We called at Talia Beach and caves, a few K off the Highway. A large group of kangaroos grazing by the roadside were disturbed by us and went hopping off into the bush. The Sheepshed Caves...

Oz and the Big Lap

Dec 1, 2016 - On the way home

Have decided on staying a couple of days again here in Ceduna - we enjoy our stops here at the Big4, and the cabins are really nice. Walked to the waterfront and enjoyed a bit of R & R after our busy days in Broken Hill and Peterborough. Off to another crossing of the Nullarbor.

Nov 23, 2016 - Roadside stop at Head of the Bight to Smoky Bay

We made it to the stop outside Ceduna that I had thought we would stay the night by about lunchtime. It wasn’t a particularly nice spot - you were really right on the side of the road with very little protection, so we decided to stop for lunch and that I would stew the apples and cook the carrots I had left in the fridge, before continuing onto Ceduna. I still had some lettuce and tomato left over after lunch, but knew that I just had to accept they were going to be taken at the quarantine stop, which is exactly what happened. However,...

Oct 29, 2016 - Into Ceduna for a break.

Happy birthday to our firstborn, 43 today. Love you Troy. Well, a different day today...windy, windy, windy. Stopped at Penong to visit the windmill museum, an outdoor display that has Australia's largest windmill, as well as its tallest. Refuelled, oh the lovely cheaper fuel here in SA, and Pete almost blew over doing it.. Temp today at Nullarbor got to 38, and on arrival in Ceduna, it was 41 degrees. Hmm, we thought it was a warm drive!! Had a thundering downpour to break the heat around 5pm. Woke the next morning to a grey, damp and cold...

Sep 21, 2015 - Ceduna

Monday 21 September 2015 A very relaxed day in Ceduna. We have not had a lot of "down time" days, so appreciate them when they come along. Spent a couple of hours wandering around town, as small as it is. A great outdoor-come-everything shop which occupied about an hour of our time, and also some dollars! Before we ventured up town, we did washing, dusting and floor cleaning! Feels good now, but it won't be long before we are living in the "dust zone" again. After lunch back at the vans, we spent the afternoon putting everything back in...

Nullabor Adventure

Sep 20, 2015 - Nullabor to Ceduna

Sunday 20 September 2015 A different experience at Nullabor Roadhouse, they sure pack the vans in there! Quite late in the afternoon, a camper trailer arrived and tried to park between us, and also parked on Gary's power lead. Great! The boys were quick to get him to move after we heard him suggest to his wife that she leave room for "them" to get their door open! The wind really came up during the night again, so we enjoyed the flap flap noise of the camper trailer!! Never mind, it's all part of the experience. Pretty sure we would pace...

Nullabor Adventure

Nov 15, 2013 - Beginning the Links

Ceduna is a nice little town and it's also the start (or finish) of the Nullarbor Golf Links. Apparently a few years ago a group of men were in a pub thinking of ways to get people to stop across the Nullarbor instead of going as fast as they could. They came up with golf and the Nullarbor Links was born. It stretches 1365 kilometers from Ceduna to Kalgoorlie and has 18 holes along the way. It is the longest golf links in the world. There are two holes at Ceduna and David played them today. We met 'Stern' on the golf course and he was very...

Nov 12, 2013 - The Nullarbor Links

This is such a beautiful spot and we walked on the cliffs and saw some lovely beaches. The cliffs are such a drop into the ocean so it was scary for me but not for David as he doesn't seem to mind standing near the edge. (Not my idea of fun). The view is amazing. The ocean and the beaches all look amazing. We needed to go into Ceduna to look around, go to the information centre and post office, and the supermarket, fill the gas bottle, and check up on equipment for the Truk42. In the Information Centre you can sign up for 'The Nullarbor...

Sep 3, 2013 - Day 3 Part 4

Well, we stopped here at the quarantine station. There go those beautiful tomatoes, the roasting vegies (already prepared in a shop). Funny, they let us keep the premade potato bake! Anyway, we went further into the town, found a nice spot by the beach and had our rolls for lunch. Then, we visited the most amazing toilets I had ever visited! Music while you sat and auto flushing when you washed your hands or left! Made me feel ever so weird!

JandsAdelaide2013

Apr 1, 2013 - Westward along the sweeping bays

After spending time with family in Adelaide we headed to Maitland on the Eyre Peninsula to spend two nights with Alan, one of Col’s army mates from (dare I say it!) 50 years ago, then on to North Shields near Port Lincoln on the Yorke Peninsula to see Nick, another army mate and his wife Robin. Maitland is surrounded by wheat and barley growing country with flat plains stretching out as far as you can see and has a lively local community typical of smaller country towns. Nick and Robin gave us a grand tour of Port Lincoln (photos yet to...

Jan 2, 2013 - Haslam to Ceduna

Travelled from Mt Ive Station to Haslam Beach free camp. Went out on a different road than the way we went in to Mt Ive and it was just as corrugated and probably more dusty than going in. The van got smashed by dust once again! The worst we've had ever, not a big deal, just a big clean up when we arrive at the new camp. A fine film on everything and a big pile on the floor. Haslam beach on the Eyre Peninsula was a good little find after a pretty big day on the road. It's a free camp right in the town of Haslam with toilets but no showers...
