Nov 4, 2007 - Rain Delay

693 Km at start 887 Km at stop 194 Km total or 122 miles. Late yesterday, the weather began deteriorating and only worsened this morning. Without TV or radio it is difficult to keep up with the weather other than real time weather. In real time it was raining hard so we packed up and departed for points north. Our trip today took us through large pasture lands filled with sheep and cattle. For any of you who are familiar with the bovine species, the cattle appear to be mostly Herford and Black Angus for the beef cattle and Guernsey with a...

Nov 19, 2006 - The Trip to Dunkeld

Sylvia's Comments Our bush camp experience ended on Wednesday morning and we returned to Beaufort to re stock on provisions.

On the evening when we arrived it felt...

Sep 1, 2006 - Warrnambool

We crossed the state line from South Australia into Victoria, and now we are back into the Eastern Time zone, 16 hours ahead of home. Warrnambool is at the start of the Great Ocean Road (or the end, depending on your perspective), which we will see more of tomorrow. Warrnambool is situated on Lady Bay, on the way to Melbourne, on the Southern Ocean. It took an hour and a half to drive here from Mt Gambier. It's the neatest blend of a lively city and a country town. We arrived here around lunchtime and spent most of the afternoon at...

Mar 2, 2005 - Grampians and area, Australia

We decided to get off the Great Ocean Road and head inland. On the way we stopped at Mt. Eccles National Park which promised a huge koala population. It delivered on that, and thanks to it's off the beaten track location, we were the only people there. In a matter of a couple of hours we had a pleasant walk through the forest and spotted over 30 koalas, some very close up and all very adorable. (At an age of 20,000 years, this is one of the youngest volcanoes on the continent. Charlie) From there we drove up to Grampians National Park,...
