    Morgen Post/Gutnacht Post

    January 3, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Nach einer wirklich warmen Nacht, haben uns die Rinder mit ihrem muhen geweckt.
    Das Morgenessen in der Sonne ist bereits oben ohne bei 25C.
    Als ich die Sonnenstore wieder runterkurbelte, sah ich unser Haustier von dieser Nacht🤪🥴🙈.
    Wie unser Weg weiter geht ist total offen, den die Brände im Süden werden immer noch stärker.
    Die Strasen an der Küste von Sydney nach Melbourne sind geschlossen, und es unverantwortlich in dieses Gebiet zu fahren.
    Sydney könnte noch möglich sein, aber danach????🤔🙈🙈.

    Bunya Mountains National Park - Tag 2

    July 24, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    On our second day in the Bunya Mountains we did a 10km hike through the rainforest. This National Park is really nice - just a bit cold and wet right now. It was fun to watch all the wallabies.

    An unserem zweiten Tag in den Bunya Mountains haben wir eine 10km lange Wanderung durch den Regenwald gemacht. Es ist ein richtig schöner Nationalpark nur recht kalt und nass. Aber den vielen Wallabies kann man auch im Regen zu sehen!Read more

    Boondooma Homestead + lucky sightings

    June 25, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Another great day. I feel so lucky that so much has gone right for me.

    Leaving Cania Gorge I called into the picnic area at the S end to check out a burrow in the creek bank I'd spotted yesterday - I'm sure it's a platypus hole, and it's been smartened up recently. But still no sighting.
    It was a nice morning - dew on the grass and the sun just coming up over the Gorge wall, so I decided to do the 300m Picnic Area walk. It runs along the creek, but most of the time you can't see the water through the vegetation. Most of the time. I can't believe my timing was so fortunate ... I saw a male platypus swim across the creek - that's a 10/10 sighting - utterly natural 😆

    I'd decided to take another slightly-out-of-the-way route down Highway 75 to a place called Boondooma Homestead. En route an eastern grey kangaroo (like those at Cania) bounded across the road about 200m in front of me. 4 hops, and no looking RLR. Again that's a cast-iron wild sighting, and not so close as to cause me any worries. When I picked up the van in Cairns I realised the reason they offer rollover insurance is because people swerve to miss kangas. I didn't take it (more expense 😯) so they told me not to swerve!

    This evening I'm at Boondooma Homestead which is a C19 cattle property - if it was in the UK it'd be owned by the National Trust. It's gradually being restored and furnished. One of the guys i met was brought up there. It's been an interesting and friendly stop, and I was the only overnighter - they can take 700 vans for large events!

    Murgon and Surrounds Birds

    September 21 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We weren’t sure what to expect at Barambah Bush Caravan Park but the name said it all. It is in a lovely bush setting not far from Murgon. There is bird feeding every day so of course the birds arrive for their free feed. I am sure that others are here as well. It should be a nice few days.

    Love a King Parrot. Except when my Tomatoes are green. Then we are not friends. Not at all!

    I can imagine these parrots eating all the tomatoes in sight, green or ripe.

    Barambah Caravan Park

    September 22 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    We are always a little apprehensive when we book a caravan park. This place was a pleasent surprise. Nicely laid out on the side of a hill, birds all around and lots of woodland walks behind the park. It even has a 9 hole golf course out front for $5 a game.

    Pam is really enjoying the walking and birds. I am walking all over and relaxing with my book in between walks. It is very relaxed. The only outing has been a run over to Murgon via the Bjekke-Petersen dam. Boy that is low! 7% according to the reports. They need a rain dance. We should have come with the camper. That always gets us wet.

    The weather rock is quite dry but was swinging a lot yesterday. Probably did a bit of a jiggle dance this morning in sympathy with the earthquake in Victoria.

    Nanangan Qld

    June 22, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    Where??? I hear you say😄 it’s just a tiny little country town in the South Burnett region of Qld. We saw this on WikiCamps as we were making our way towards Kingaroy. An area that Dave is keen on seeing, peanut growing country and Joe Bjelke Petersons old stamping ground.
    Our original plan was to spend the day at Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo, but when we arrived there this morning we were told no dogs allowed anywhere within the car parks of the zoo, wether kept inside a vehicle or chained up outside. Of course our darling little dog let fly with a few barks when the car park attendant approached Dave’s window so no hiding her. Very disappointed, as we know we can leave phoebe quite happily for a few hours as long as she has water and it’s not too hot. Oh well another time perhaps.
    So we went into Beerwah, the closest town, and used the local laundromat to catch up on washing. Now here we are in Nanangan with our knickers and stuff hanging out to dry between the trees. 😂😂😂
    As we drove, we saw advertisements for the Woodford Annual Show, starting today, so we stopped in there for a look and stroll around a typical country show. Loved it. Very country and a reminder of what a country show really is, as in Prizes for the best jams, sponges , fruit etc.

    We’ve spent a couple of days driving through some high country and it is so beautiful, mountainous, and green undulating farmland. Dave says some parts are like the farming areas in NZ.

    Nanango

    June 6, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Day 1 of the Lap. We left Esk and drove to Toogoolawah for a quick stop to visit Gary's old work mate from Queensland rail. Moved on to Blackbutt and went to the famous bakery to get lunch and sit in the park with the dogs. Onto Nanango information centre to register and Get a permit to camp at the Broadcaster Reserve camp. A gorgeous quiet spot on a small river. Lots of pelicans and cows. 😁 we had the best sunset last night. The reflection on the water was amazing. We will be here for 4 days if our water lasts. Got some strategies in place to help it last.Read more
