Perfect one day………

Ahh finally a few fine days in a row and not freezing 😁 We spent a few nights at Calliope at the River on the south side. When we drove in we were a little shocked at the number of campers. We have stayed here several times and never seen it this busy, seems to … Continue reading Perfect one day………

The Great Escape

After being delayed in Brisbane for a few weeks we were getting itchy feet and going a bit stir crazy being isolated. We started planning “Our Great Escape” heading north, to warmer pastures. Our prisoner escape committee consisted of Chris, chief engineer and driver, Kate planner, organiser and cook and Jess the faithful companion chief … Continue reading The Great Escape

We slowly made our way back towards Brisbane with a scheduled appointment we had been waiting on. Passing through Kingaroy and Nanango luckily before the heavy rains came and caused flooding in the towns. This is the loop we did over the last 7 weeks, while we were waiting for an appointment date. In Brisbane … Continue reading Wescloud

Three Moons

Meat Ants & Teddie Bears

We had heard great things about the donation camps at Augathella. The main area one is across the road from the pub, access to showers, toilets, potable water, bins and a nice scroll up the street. This area was very full, certainly a popular spot. There are a couple of others a bit further away … Continue reading Meat Ants & Teddie Bears

Charleville

A bit behind on our posts, so will post a couple to catch up over the next few days. Charleville is another one of those places we have just driven by heading to a further destination. This time it was time to explore it. We stopped for a few nights out of town at the … Continue reading Charleville

M & M

Mitchell is known for the Great Artesian Spa, lovely hot pools but there is another side to Mitchell some people might not know. The infamous Kenniff brothers, bushrangers who liked other people’s property, especially cattle and horses. They avoided capture for sometime due to being elusive and a general lack of evidence. In March 1902 … Continue reading M & M
