    50 Tag Yeppon Ort ohne Namen

    May 30 in Australia

    Heute fuhren wir wiedereinmal Auto🛣. Aber!!!! Wir machten ein Zwischenstopp⛽️. Und gingen in eine Tierauffangstation🐨. Wir konnten viele exotische Tiere sehen👀. Wir konnten fast alle anfassen und auf der Schulter tragen👉. Die Kängurus durfte man sogar füttern🥪.

    (Wir haben so viele Tiere gesehen dass nicht alle Fotos platz haben, ihr könnt mir schreiben, wenn ihr alle Fotos wollt📸. Ich schicke sie euch✍️).

  • Day51

    Den Morgen haben wir nochmals auf dem tollen Campingplatz verbracht, wo sich Levin beim Baden und Trampolin springen austoben konnte. Anschliessend besuchten wir eine Auffangstation für verletzte Tiere. Für Levin und mich war es ein Highlight die Kängurus zu füttern. Patrik hatte einen Puls von 200, als die Kängurus auf uns zu kamen. Er hat sich aber tapfer geschlagen und den Park mit Angstzustände überlebt😉. Dann fuhren wir nochmals zwei Stunden Richtung Norden. Diese Nacht werden wir nicht auf einem Campingplatz verbringen, sondern irgendwo auf einem Parkplatz. Da wir morgen früh losfahren wollen, sparen wir uns die Nacht auf einem Campingplatz. Wir hoffen, dass wir nicht erwischt werden und eine ruhige Nacht haben werden😀. Ihr werdet es Morgen erfahren.Read more

    Stop Nr. 10: St Lawrence

    November 5, 2015 in Australia

    Viel zu sagen gibt es über diesen Stop eigentlich nicht.. Wir waren hier nur eine Nacht, da unser Ziel Agnes Water zu weit weg war von Airlie Beach um direkt durchzufahren.. Diese Stadt war ziemlich verlassen, es sah aus wie aus einem Western-Film mit den ganzen altern Holzhäusern. Das coole war aber, dass wir zum ersten Mal richtig große Kängurus gesehen haben und auch 2 Emus !

    Cape Palmerston

    September 15 in Australia

    Here we are finding to be a nice area to camp. We are staying at the caravan park in a nice open surrounding. This morning we witnessed a couple of Shellducks sitting on a high tree branch. Not a trivial accomplishment for a bird with webbed feet more suited to swimming. As they moved keeping a footing was sometimes tricky for them. Apparently this behavior is unique to these ducks.

    Today a short drive to Greenhill. Here is a substantial village with some impressive homes built. Dow to the beach it is easy to see why people like this area. It is easy to launch boats for a fishing trip or just enjoy the beach.

    A short walk from the park and you are at another beach.

    Notch Point

    September 15 in Australia

    We shall remember Notch Point as Midge Point. We got out of the car to take a few photos and were attacked by hundreds of sandflies. The itch was almost unbearable. A wash with water only helped a little and even a shower half an hour later has not completely taken away the irritation.

    The drive in was good and the view where we stopped impressive. We had decided to cut the run in to the camping area short due to a water crossing of unknown depth. My copilot was probably not interested in testing the depth or checking the crocodile activity. We shall now cross this off our places to camp. This is despite a glowing write up of the area on a sign at Ilbilbie.Read more

    Day 1

    June 6 in Australia

    Day 1. Finally on the road. Left home around 1130. Took forever to get through Rocky. Arrived at the Riverside RV camp at illbilbie around 1700. Great spot and only $5 a night. Pizza and Sausages for dinner. Kids all in bed and asleep by 8 while we settle in by the fire to listen to Origin 1.

    Lake Elphinstone - Queensland

    September 12 in Australia

    Lake Elphinstone is a natural lake between Nebo and Glendon. At night one can see and hear one of the nearby mines.

    Today is actually a little cool in the wind. That does not bother the thousands of coots, many ducks and a dozen or so black swans rafting around on the water. Ever now and then the coots form a tighter group, sometimes 3-400 m long and 50m wide. Then they drift apart while they each select morsels of food.

    All the while ducks, and other water birds cruise around, seemingly among invisible coots. The right hand swimming swans monogram their presence with necks bent looking into the water while the return lane mirrors.

    A solitary stilt regularly patrols just in front of where we are in his search for food. Just in front of us a grove of spindly weeds makes a perfect hiding spot for dozens of very small birds. They behave like Reed warblers and are cohabiting with a couple of other small birds. Their happy chatter brightens up the drab call of the crows.

    Several small kingfishers take up point on a dead tree planning their next swoop on an unsuspecting small fish. Way up above the kites sweep a huge area in search of unwary prey. When they come too close the coots become nervous and the small birds engage in a communication blackout.

    Now a flotilla of coots is doing a close sortie back to where their drift began. A few have started to dunk in search of food on the bottom.
