    Emu Park

    May 25, 2017 in Australia

    So gegen viertel nach 5 machte ich mich von meinem Hostel auf den Weg zu dem Pick- Up Point, von dem ich zur Bahn gebracht wurde. Dort lernte ich Jess kennen, die ebenfalls mit Loka zum dem Emu Park in der Nähe von Rockhampton fährt. Um 19.30 ging der Zug Richtung Rockhampton. Im Zug lernten wir unseren Tour Guide TK kennen. Auf Anhieb war die Stimmung super und wir drei hatten eine Menge zu Lachen. Irgendwann zwische 2 und 3 Uhr kamen wir in unserem Hostel an. Hess und ich hatten ein Zimmer alleine. 😊 Am nächsten Morgen hieß es erst mal ausschlafen und dann ging es an den Pool.Read more

    Today we headed into Yeppoon and its’ monthly market as well as the tourist information Centre for some local maps. Along the way we stopped at some of the pretty beaches and marina.

    After eating a picnic lunch in the park next to the market we drove back to our caravan park where we both had a swim and a rest.

    Later in the afternoon we went for a drive south to Emu Park to pick up a few supplies at the supermarket and to see the amazing ANZAC war memorial tribute on the foreshore.

    The tribute includes a ‘singing ship’ where the prevailing winds sounds like singing as they pass through the rotating wind pipes. The ship leads to an ANZAC memorial board walk where one side is sea and the other has tin sculptures of soldiers as they hiked through the unforgiving landscapes, culminating in a picture story shed telling the history of our ANZAC soldiers. We were lucky to be there at dusk to see the beginning of the sunset as it somehow made the memorial feel even more fitting.

    Back to the caravan park to make an easy dinner of roast chicken (thanks Drakes supermarket!) and time to unwind...

    Laving home a bit after 10am.

    January 6 in Australia

    Christmas is well behind us now. Last minute stuff to be done... When you are off on a trip there is so much to be done before you leave. Turning off all the power points, making sure things to be left on are not turned off. It has been a hectic week but we finally headed off. The road is our home for a while now.

    Some of this trip will be posted as public, however if you are a friend and would like to be able to see all my posts, you will need to join Find Penguins and request to follow me. It's very simple and free. The site is www.findpenguins.com.

    Crows Nest

    May 8 in Australia

    Around 30 kilometres from Toowoomba is this small town. The van park is a good spot to stop for a couple of days so we can spend a day in Toowoomba.

    We did not book as this should be a quiet little town. Imagine our surprise when we fold it packed out. There was a huge group gathered here for the weekend! Fortunately we did not require power and were able to setup camp in a small area.Read more
