    Henty, NSW

    April 17 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    A short stop at Henty and I discover a display dedicated to Headlie Taylor who grew up on the near the family farm at Emerald Hill. He left school at 14 years of age to work on the family farm.

    He invented the Sunshine harvester, the forerunner of all Moser grain harvesters as well as many practical farm implements.Read more

    A submarine far from the ocean!

    April 16, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    After a very long day in the car we spent the night in Holbrook. It's a pretty small town and the only cafe open was a Mexican one, so that was lucky because we love tacos. Our cabin was small!

    There is a huge submarine in the park! We could climb on it. Why is there a submarine on land? Well there was this Captain called Holbrook who sailed on it to fight the Germans in World War 2. It was an old fashioned submarine at the time and they nearly ran out of oxygen but Holbrook was very brave and took down a whole battleship! The town had been called Germanton and wanted a new name so they chose Holbrook. He thought that was so nice he raised money to bring the sub there once it stopped being used.Read more

  • Day6


    December 17, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Stopped at Woomagarma for a look around but I didn't want to stay on bitumen and nothing to explore except a pub, so we kept going to Holbrook. Nice grassy area behind the Riverina Hotel, wandered around town & saw the Otway sub in the main street. Dinner was cheap & tasty (crumbed mushrooms 😋) and all in all a pleasant stop.Read more
