    The car is loaded with snacks, activities and all our stuff. We're on our way to Newcastle where mum and dad used to live, for Hannah's 21st birthday. We hope it's not too long to get to our first holiday house!

    Peaceful Paynesville.

    April 6, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    When mum said we were going to Paynesville we thought it was painsville which didn't sound too good for a holiday. There was a LOT of roadwork on the way. We stopped to look at interesting shops and galleries in Yarragon, having lunch at a bakery. Our apartment in Paynesville is so nice and modern and comfortable, right near the water. Everyone here has a boat or yacht. The playground is pretty good and at the waterfront we saw a swan making a nest, and a really cool public toilet! There are not many street lights so the sky is much darker than Melbourne. We had fun walking in our street in pitch dark!Read more

    Today was a good day!

    April 7, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Hello! We had a relaxing morning then lunch at a boat club. So many boat clubs in Paynesville! Then we caught a ferry to Raymond Island. It is a 2 minute ferry ride but there is no bridge so you have to get the ferry. Imagine living on the island! It is an amazing natural place and there are lots of koalas even in people's yards. We rode in a 4 person surry bike to explore the island. Sam was the best pedaller with his strong legs! Ruby learned to steer..Read more

    Jetty, raft and lemonade

    April 7, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    This morning we discovered the jetty near our apartment. There are so many boats in the canal. It's a different kind of life here. Near our apartment there is also a cool old raft which looks like a broken down caravan you can ride on the water. We tried to imagine living on it. Then we had fancy lemonade drinks on our verandah. We also saw a jet plane (but we think a rocket) heading past the moonRead more

    Lakes Entrance

    April 8, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    We said goodbye to our nice apartment in Paynesville and checked out the market where mum and dad bought relish for a change, and we got dream catchers. The locals were so nice.
    Lakes entrance is a fun holiday town. We went across the bridge to the 90 Mile Beach... Yes it is that long! We all got wet in our clothes in the waves. Ruby fell over in the water so we had fish and chips for lunch in the sun to dry out.Read more

    Arriving in Eden

    April 8, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Yes, we are expecting paradise!
    Eden is a nice beach town and we will explore tomorrow. We are staying in a cool cabin with 2 bunk beds so we can both be on the top!!! It is a small cabin but we love it because the playground is just outside. And there are 2 bunk beds!

    Killer Whale Museum!

    April 9, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    We were amazed to learn that killer whales helped men round up other whales for harpooning. The main one was called Old Tom and he wore down his teeth by pulling on the boat ropes. The killer whales got paid for helping, with leftover food to eat. The museum about all this was also in a beautiful building with great ocean views.Read more

    Exploring the lookout, lunch in a nice outside cafe, and two times in the pool! We had barbecued pink ling fish for dinner, it was actually pink!
