Katherine NT

2 night Stop

We are at a caravan park in Katherine NT - tonight and tomorrow night for a rest before we do the 522k stretch to Kununarra WA. After this we will then do the 650k hop to Fitzroy Crossing and stay there a few days at least. There is an agricultural checkpoint on the way to Kununarra and all fruit and veg has to be ditched. Unlike the NT leg this will all be new Territory for us to explore. NT roads are generally good unlike the Qld roads across from Townsville which are shockers in parts. All good with the Ranger and Caravan.

Westward Ho!

To WA and beyond

We've spent a couple of weeks in Townsville visiting family and friends - lots of rain and a mini-tornado to boot. We've also used this stop to do some annual maintence - a service, new battery and new tyres for the Ranger (Cooper Discovery AT3's). Tomorrow we head to Hughenden via Charters Towers - we expect the roads to be a bit rough after heavy rains and flooding. After hardly seing another Montana Cooper on our travels there are three of them here at the Range Caravan Park - and one guy here has two other family members with a Cooper.

Yass then north to Townsville

A great stop in Yass

Well it's been a while since the last entry. We spent 5 weeks in Yass with family - put in a new kitchen, had a cedar shed erected (to store our gear), and had a garage sale. Yass is a very nice spot and we got to know some of the locals in this period. Yass reminds us of some of the small towns in the Adelaide hills - green, undulating and nice old houses. The weather was initially fine but in the last couple of weeks it rained nearly constantly. The kitchen turned out really well and the cedar shed now stores our belongings while we are travelling. We are currently in Bowen after heading north from Yass and dodging flood waters for a number of days. We'll arrive in Townsville tomorrow and will be there for 2-3 weeks. See photos.

Post New Year in Adelaide

Heading Off Again Soon

We've spent about a month in Adelaide catching up with family and friends. Di has been doing a lot of "Ancestry" research and recently met up with her cousin Les who is a kindred spirit traveller (as well as a historian, biker and radio buff). We've also been doing some annual maintence things for the car and caravan so they ready for our next year of travel. In about a week we head off towards Yass and will take a leisurely trip stopping overnight several times along the way. We are looking forward to seeing our eldest Daughter and husband in the new home in Yass and spend some time exploring the surrounding area. Will post photo's next blog.
