Three Moons

What an awesome little town Monto is. Very close to Cania George, main Street with lots of shops, couple of supermarkets and the cheapest fuel we have seen in ages at the Puma. There is a 72hr RV stop in the town area at the old railway station. One area was not in use from … Continue reading Three Moons

It’s amazing how many of these little towns have something special about them, some sort of interesting history, something unique to them. But I get ahead of myself. The sun is shining once more after nearly a week of overcast skies and wet days. After leaving the Gem fields we stopped at Emerald and filled … Continue reading Moura

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

In March 1902 … Continue reading M & M

Cattle, cow, bull, Mucka?

Roma is another one of those places we often fuel up and keep on driving. This time we had planned to stay one night in Roma, visit a few stores for some supplies, check out the local sites, fuel up and leave the next day. After a big day shopping we decided we needed another … Continue reading Cattle, cow, bull, Mucka?

Muntapa Railway Tunnel

We have stayed or passed Cooyar more times than we can remember over the years but we never knew about the Muntapa Railway Tunnel that is only 16km  from Cooyar. This is what it is about having more time to poke around places and see what is there. We find these sort of history events … Continue reading Muntapa Railway Tunnel

Hit the road Jack

Hit the road Jack……. For those that have been following us for a while, you know we love to travel. Despite only having holidays with Chris working we have managed to cover a fair bit of ground and explore some amazing places, especially on the east of Australia. But we want more, we want to … Continue reading Hit the road Jack

Joseph Wills Park, Elsmore, NSW

What a little gem we stayed at last night. Joseph Wills Park, Elsmore, NSW Between Inverell and Glen Innes. Approx 2-3kms of gravel road to get to the place. Very quiet, large grassy area with lots of table and chairs. Long drop toilets right next to MacIntyre River. Run by the local Lions Club and … Continue reading Joseph Wills Park, Elsmore, NSW
