    Wollongong und Umgebung

    October 9 in Australia

    Heute waren wir erst beim Blowhole in Kiama. Auch wenn es ziemlich windstill war, ist immer mal wieder eine hohe Fontäne hochgespritzt.
    Danach sind wir in den Budderoo Nationalpark gefahren und waren dort auf dem Tree Top Walk und beim Fitzroy Fall. Dieser sah mit seinen 81 Metern sehr imposant aus über man hatte eine super Sicht!
    Auf dem Rückweg ins Hostel sind wir dann noch beim Bombo Headland vorbeigefahren, wo wir erst Surfern zugeschaut haben und dann bei den Felsen waren und zum Abschluss noch zwei Wale gesehen haben.

    Ein Tag im Busch

    December 5 in Australia

    Den heutigen Tag haben wir wortwörtlich im australischen Busch verbracht. Mit Boutique Wildlife haben wir eine Buschtour gemacht.
    Nach einer kleinen Teatime mit einem typisch, australischen Lamington, ging es mit einer kleinen Gruppe und einem 4x4-OffRoad-Sprinter südwestlich von Sydney in den Busch.
    Auf dem Weg in einen Eukalyptuswald entdeckten wir neben Kängurus, Wallabys, eine Eule, Emus und verschiedene Papageien sowie Kakadus.
    Nach ausgiebigen Stopps im Eukalyptuswald mit langen Spaziergängen konnten wir heute leider keine Koalas erspähen. Dafür sahen wir Termitenhügel, welche unsere Körpergröße weit überstieg.
    Auf dem Rückweg hat unser Guide nochmal alles versucht Koalas zu finden und hat den Allradwagen an seine Grenzen gebracht!
    Als wir auf dem Weg zu einem Bachlauf waren, sahen wir am Straßenrand ein Echidna (Ameisenigel), welches gerade auf dem Weg zurück in seinen Bau war. Obwohl der Guide alles versuchte, den Echnida aus seinem Bau zu locken, verteilte dieser nur Stachel an den Guide und blieb in seinem Bau.
    Am Bachlauf angekommen hatten wir das große Glück ein Platypus (seltenes Schnabeltier) in seiner realen Umgebung zu sehen.
    Das anschließende Abendessen verbrachten wir in einem kleinen, urigen Pub. Bevor wir uns zurück auf den Weg nach Sydney machten, fuhren wir noch durch die Nacht und fanden neben Wombats und Füchsen auch Possums.

    Moss Vale - Bowral

    February 11, 2017 in Australia

    Managed to avoid driving through Sydney by taking the Western Ring Road. A couple of toll points, but a lot easier with the caravan.

    Stayed 3 nights at Moss Vale Showground. 42° when we arrived due to the NSW heatwave, but returned to normal Southern Highland temperatures of 11-24° for the next couple of days.

    Very upmarket "New England" village style towns and home to some of Sydneys richest. John Laws, Nicole Kidman and Jimmy Barnes all own multi- million dollar properties in the area. I have never seen so many BMW's and Merc's in one place!

    I spent 4 hours at the Don Bradman museum while Marg chilled for the day. Absolutely loved it...could've stayed longer!

    4wd track

    October 22, 2016 in Australia

    There was a lot of lightning and rain last night. I stayed pretty long in My car. I tried to find the earplugs for the thunder. But couldn't find them. I searched the hole car and still couldn't find it. So I went back to surfcamp and couldn't find it there either. So that was a good start of my day (not)... But no worries nobody died.

    I wanted to get some stuff for my car and get some food. I got stuck with fitzroy falls. I hiked over there to see some waterfalls, it was pretty cool. Especially the waterfall on the cave! When I was hiking I saw an 4wd road. I went back to my car and took that road (movie is coming). The woman from the information desk sad I might have to turn around at the end because of the rain last night. I drove all the way to the end without any troubles, it was a lot of fun.

    A Kilometer further an other 4wd track appears, I took the track. This was a bit more difficult than the one before. I used a piece of wood to see how deep the puddle of water was. And mostly it was not so deep. One puddle was just as deep as the bottom of the car completely touched the water. And unfortunately I hesitatet with one puddle to drive trough it. I wished I haven't done it. Unfortunately I got stuck. So tried some things to get out but got no luck. So I started walking and running back. Went to a few houses and finally after 45 minutes(35 minutes walking and running on the track) I found a house where somebody was home. I asked her if she could help me. But she hadn't an rope or chain to pull me out. She called pete (an neighbor) and asked if he got an rope or chain. And he wanted to pull me out with his tractor. She drove me to his shed and there Pete was getting some stuff to dig me out if it was necessary. I sad on the tractor and when we got @ the car. It was only a few seconds and I was out of the puddle. I thanked Pete for his help. The people are so nice and helpful here.

    I drove back to the road and headed to an village with the aldi!. In between I stopped. When I would head off I tried to start the motor and heard a bang, than screaming sound and a lot of smoke coming from the hood. I thought nooooo you got to be kidding me. So I turned off the motor and tried again. Then I went looking under the hood and found a broken vbelt of the power steering. So I removed It and started the motor again. So now car driving is a workout for my arms. I'm gonna fix it next week. I think all the shopping centers for those things are closed.

    So afterall I had a perfect day! It was raining, lost my ear plugs, got stuck with my car and v-belt of power steering has broken. Pff, but it was an good story for this blog.
