It's Today!

Time has come to travel for just over 3 months once again within Australia.
So we leave our home once again which is being left in good hands.
Not quite finished travels for Winter 2016, will finish sometime.
If I'm able to most likely due to internet coverage and data available might be able to post a photo or two whilst away.

A post from 2015 Inside the Caravan. Some may have seen this post in the past, it contains photos inside the caravan.

Today we sail across the sea, Bass Strait to Melbourne in Victoria and head north once again with our caravan. We don't know exactly where we are going, just follow our noses :)
Be safe, be happy and see you all later :)

Great Oyster Bay, Swansea, Tasmania, Australia.
A delicate sunset.

A post from 2015  of life inside the caravan.

Down to Eden, NSW

Arrived at Eden in October 2016 for a few nights staying at a very clean cute caravan park.
Never have we seen a sign as below in all our years of travelling Australia since the year 2000 only missing a couple of years. (Usually winter only)

Often the sailing boats come to Eden for shelter.

A Museum above and fishing boats below. 

What a view for a Cemetery over looking the sea.

At the lookout below.

Heading home, Winter 2016

Batemans Bay is not that far from Melbourne, Victoria so therefore not far from home which is the Island of Tasmania south of Victoria.
Batemans Bay was much cooler in temperature so the heater came out when necessary, plus winter clothing.

We stayed in a nice caravan park a few klms from the town it was by the beach, but we couldn't see the sea, that was just a few steps away.

Didn't pull the awning out due to strong winds at times.
Below is the Camp Kitchen for those that wish to use it.

Part of the Playground below.

The sign above was in the fish and chips shop.
One below was in the walkway to the supermarket.

Another beach near Batemans Bay

The houses have the view of above.

On the map don't know why it takes so long to fly - maybe stop over.

Something different!

Things one sees south of Sydney in Winter 2016.

South of west Sydney we saw the above then the car below, didn't see the accident was rather amused at seeing this man driving along the off road - highway.

Kiama light house on a hill over looking the sea.

Kiama is a township 120 kilometres south of Sydney in the Illawarra, New South Wales, Australia in the Municipality of Kiama. At the 2011 census, Kiama had a population of 12,817 people. One of the main tourist attractions is the Kiama Blowhole

Port Macquaire, Bulahdelah, Heatherbrae, NSW

After Port Macquarie we headed to Heatherbrae in NSW for one night before heading towards Sydney,  I planned on the map to go west of Sydney and we found our way without getting lost! 5 lanes of traffic in places.  We have been into Sydney before but without a caravan.

Port Macquaire Police Station, the newer one then the old one.

Bulahdelah, NSW - the shopping area on a rather steep hill, it's here we had lunch at a lovely park.

Caravan Park at near Heatherbrae NSW

The amenities block below and restaurant where we had a meal. 

Heatherbrae is the mark on the map not that far from Sydney 162 klms
First lot of flowers we had seen since leaving home.  Well flowers that we also have at home.

Around Port Macquarie, NSW

Continuing Port Macquarie
A Canal and photos of more beaches around the area.
The colour of the water was amazing and photos do not do it justice.

Town Beach, Port Macquarie, rather a rough day

Port Macquarie, NSW

Port Macquarie is a town at the mouth of the Hastings River in New South Wales, Australia. It’s known for its beaches, wildlife and penal colony past. St. Thomas' Anglican Church was built by convicts in the 19th century. A coastal walk from the town centre to the 19th-century Tacking Point Lighthouse offers views over waters home to whales and dolphins.

Once again in Winter 2016 a caravan park was by the Hastings River, this was our view!

Photos of some buildings and beaches plus the lighthouse in Port Macquarie.
