Jul 5, 2014 - Day 1 Inverleigh to Murray Bridge 607kms

It was a cold and blustery 12 degrees when Coralie, Peter and Yvonne waved us goodbye at 1pm. We set out to get as many kms under our belt as possible before stopping. What we quickly discovered about our new home for the next three months was that it has lots of storage, is quite roomy, the driving cab is comfortable, warm and quiet, the back is freezing cold and sounds like a jumbo jet at take off and landing. Dinner at Bordertown then another couple of hours driving to our first roadside overnight stop at Murray Bridge. Lessons learned:...

Today we left Mt Gambier and headed to Robe out on the coast. Robe is a stunning little coastal town which is crazy busy over the holiday period no wonder win such a beautiful beach.

Sep 9, 2013 - Day 9 Part 1

So, today started as a ferry for friends heading to the airport back to Perth or to other places after the Conference. Hmm. Handy, actually. Discussing the convention during the trip to the airport was a wonderful way to see what everyone got out of this one and some amazing learning was experienced. After dropping the last (and Simon) off at the airport, we headed off for Murray Bridge. Of course, we had forgotten that the Adelaide show was on so as we turned east along some road (can't remember its name) the traffic brought us to a...

Sep 3, 2012 - Day 9

A lot to catch up on. We. Had a great catch up at broken Hill with my friends. And saw some wonderful things. Australia is so big . You can see for miles out here. I think it is no wonder they thought the world was flat. Then we went another 350k m to Burra S A burra was full of stone cottages there were miners here and they built terraces the same as in England.

Nov 24, 2009 - Day 126 – Murray Bridge – “There’s the Murray and a bridge”

An interesting fact we found out today, in the early 70’s, the SA government of the time decided that, because Adelaide was about to experience such astronomical growth, they would need to build a ‘satellite city’ at Monarto. Yes it’s true. So even governments were apparently smoking something in the 70’s!! So convinced of this exponential growth were they that they compulsorily acquired all the farm land in the area and built a three lane freeway out to it. When the government changed (and a strong dose of reality set in) they realised...

Nov 23, 2009 - Day 125 – Clare to Murray Bridge (via Adelaide) – Murray ‘the wiggle’ river

Yes we finally made it to the excitement capital of Australia, Adelaide, for the first time, and spent the grand total of two hours there. Even the politicians have upped the ante and started a sex scandal for the premier which he denies. It’s all happening in South Aussie, let me tell you!!! Is there any conflict in the ‘City of churches’ also being the capital of the murder capital of the world’, as South Australia has been dubbed? Walking around town there are any number of men who looked like serial killers. It probably has something to...

Jan 2, 2007 - One night in the Riverland

What's a trip around Australia without a night on a house boat? Stu has rellies in the Riverland so we head there for the experience, via Adelaide to pick up the trailer. Trevor & Sue Brown (Stu's Uncle & Aunt) have been keeping up to date with our travels & were keen for us to pop in on them. They are very used to having grandkids visit & so had endless things for kids to do. Our kids had a ball with horses, dogs, motorbikes, trampolines, kyaking, cubbies, toys, & rolling around on the exceptionally high quality lawn (Trev's passion!)....

Brown's Oz Trek

Apr 10, 2005 - Mannum 10-20/4

Mannum Caravan Park is council owned - and right on the river (about 50m from where I am sitting in the van) and includes a bird sanctuary. Mannum itself is a small town (no big supermarkets) but quite close to Murray Bridge (30Km). This is fortunate as Joy needed a quick checkup at the dentist, and we found one who could see her quickly. Here in Mannum I'm pleased to say the weather is a little cooler we were starting to get a bit beyond the high 30c days we have had for the last few weeks. Sun still shining and days clear. Have taken a...
