Norval Park Beach No Longer Camping

Awhile ago we went up to Norval Park Yandaran for the day and came across all of these Camping Spots along the beach. At the time I was thinking about how they all looked like there were some very permanent campers, and had to wonder how long they had been there.

Then there was an article in the news about the Turtle researchers walking along the beach and the campers were apparently being hurtful towards the researchers {with words and throwing things at them} so the beach camping got banned, the land was changed, the signs were up and now you can only camp in the small section near the beach.

Gin Gin Queensland

We love to explore where ever we can, when ever we can. We love geoaching, and we love seeing new towns. We have been out to Gin Gin Queensland to see the Fred Haigh Dam. But didn’t really stop to look around the town until a while ago.

Gin Gin Queensland ::

Such a cute little country town, where we hope to return one day to see the Cattle Auctions – must find out when they are on so our boys can go and see how animals are sold in the country!

Tamworth New South Wales

After our wonderful visit to Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre, and our crappy night stop at Red Bank Rest Area {Number 313 in the Camps 7 Book} we wanted to see and explore as much as possible in Tamworth New South Wales. We have been to the Music Festival previously but haven’t seen Tamworth in more depth. We headed to the great Information Centre, a great place where you can get free maps of the area and suggestions of what to do/where to go.

Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre

After we stayed at the free camping spot – which we will return to as soon as we can because it was amazing – “Yarramalong Weir Free Camping” we had a destination in mind – a place we have had on our bucket list for a very long time. And nothing was going to stop us along the way to reach Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre.

I have always wanted to visit a Hot Springs – I love water. Its good for the skin, the soul and the mind. And after trying to pick a Prickly Pear Fruit from the road side the water was so very soothing for the hands…Yeah Number one Tip of Traveling Australia ::

New Baby Sister

Last Saturday we went into Vet Cross in Bundaberg to look at the sweet dogs from Red Collar Rescue Biggenden. ONLY to look mind you. Well one thing led to another and now we have a New Baby Sister.

Yeah I am the worlds biggest sucker ever. Okay yeah I think she is super cute and perfect for our family.

As soon as we arrived I was drawn to a sweet little girl called “Piper” and Kyle was like “Please Mum” – yeah totally not the dog we had in mind. We have always wanted another Jack Russell to replace “Jessy” that we used to have visit us {she was a neighbours dog}Well we ended up sitting there, and Piper Jumped into Kyle’s lap and both David and I looked at each other and just knew that she was the one.

Where To Stay While Traveling Australia

On our travels over the years we have stayed in many different places, and many different styles of accommodations over the years. From Free Camping destinations – found with our Camp 7 Book, to sleeping near the beach in our Campervan, to pulling up in rest stops in our Motorhome, to sleeping in tents, to traveling with our Camper van and Camper trailer, to finding a hotel because David and Kyle were not well, to even staying at beautiful hotels/motels.

Yarramalong Weir Free Camping Spot

From Ban Ban Springs we stayed over night in Toowoomba. The next day we visited Toowoomba Japanese Gardens and Picnic Point Toowoomba we decided to head to Yarramalong Weir Free Camping Spot for the nights. Its not fair from Toowoomba, and we wanted an easy afternoon of driving, with a chance to set up camp in the daylight.

Luckily we had our dinner cooked in our Thermal Cooker so it was ready that night – mind you we forgot to buy greens for it so we had “Chicken Curry” with only potatoes! It was still very yummy. And it was the very first time we have ever been in bed and asleep by 7.30pm!! Yep we were cold, tired and in bed fast asleep early – I turned off my phone before going to sleep but David forgot to 🙂

Supporting The Local Farmers

We have always tried to Support the Local Farmers where ever we are on our travels. From little road side stores to markets to even buying from the farm.

The other day we went to Bargara Beach for some Geocaching, and on our way home we stopped to buy a bag of Sweet Potatoes for $2.00 and a bag of Zucchini for $2.00. We sure had the most amazing Baked Dinner that night!

Do you know that I could so eat a Roast Chicken and Baked Veggies every night of the week, but I don’t think our boys {or David} would agree to that!

Bargara Beach And Geocaching

On Wednesday’s we go into town to meet up with the Homeschooling group at the “Take The Plunge Cafe” – where we get to have fun working out how the Edison’s are supposed to move, and have a green tea with other homeschooling Mums – its my much needed down time.

We don’t do school work {most of us are unschoolers anyway} but because one of the sweet mama’s is a teacher {or should I say ex-teacher now that she has kids!} takes so many wonderful things for us and the kids to do. Last week she started teaching us Spanish with numbers which was such a cool thing to do.

Before we meet up I have about five hours to waste {we drop off David to work in the mornings} so we head to Bargara Beach for some Geocahing, and then head to the library before the cafe meet up.
