    All fix

    February 13, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    The truck was all fixed on Monday but to late to travel. We set out on Tuesday for a little town called Bingara. Lovely little town with a great free camp by the river that runs past the town. Will leave on Thursday and head towards Dubbo. As you can see in the photos it’s very smoky around here because there is a lot fires 🔥 going on in NSW as the drought is still in full swing with very little rain so far and no rain in sight.Read more

    Bloody hot! 44° when we arrived and 40° today. Stayed at the beautiful free camp on the Gwydir river. Found a spot under a shady tree and sat in the icy cold river to try and cool down. The breeze feels like it's coming from a furnace! The next week's forecast is more of the same so we are moving on. We're going back to Guyra and then on to Armidale where the temperature forecasts are in the range 14-30°.Read more

    Bingara Town
    Just a bit of street art and the famous Roxy Theatre. Peters Cafe next to The Roxy is still an old-fashioned cafe with a real retro feel. It's actually up For Sale if you're interested!

    Bingara - Wayne's Birthplace! Reminiscing along the river and township. Bingara is a nice little town with wide streets lined with orange trees. Each year they hold an "Orange Festival" where the school kids pick the oranges and distribute to the townsfolk. It's a great day with market stalls, dancing and competitions. We went last year and I actually had a market stall selling my Jewellery. Unfortunately it was cancelled this year due to the pandemic.Read more

    Myall Massacre Memorial

    July 6, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    Just out of Bingara you will find the Myall creek Massacre memorial site. It tells the story of the horrendous murder of local Aborigines by white landowners. It is quite moving to us as Wayne has aboriginal ancestry and these people may have been his descendants. There is a book you can purchase at the Bingara Info Centre which gives the history and there is also a booked called Denny Day which tells the account of the Police Magistrate who was responsible for bringing the murders to justice. It was the first time in Australian history that white men were tried (and some were hung) or the murder of Aboriginal people.Read more

    April 24, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 26 °C

    We've arrived at this absolutely gorgeous camp spot right on the river. Dennis met up with us and now there are 2 Jurgens Lunagazers free camping. Sat around a fire last night. Great night. The boys have been flying their drones and fishing today. We've had a group of horse riders pass our camp and cross the river further down. I made banana muffins in the weber for morning tea. Seen quite a few kangaroos.Read more
