The Hummock

Last Weekend we went to the Markets in Bundaberg and then heading to The Hummock because I wanted to see the view, and to check out the Shipping Container House {gosh that was amazing, will share more pics and details soon}. We got more then we bargained for!

The Hummock

The lookout can be driven to by car, and then there is a section where you can walk up. I was keen to do the walk after standing there looking out over the cane fields.

Scrubba Wash Bag Review Plus Giveaway

Scrubba Wash Bag Company touched base with us and asked if we were interested in doing a Product Review Plus Giveaway. Seen as how I haven’t ever heard of Scrubba Wash Bag before I had to do a little bit research before saying yes. Actually I wished we had one of these bags a few weeks ago when we went camping! Especially with our messy boy – we normally either run out of clothes when camping, or they have to wear dirty clothes to come home.

With a Scrubba Wash Bag we could take minimum clothing and wash as needed. As soon as I read how easy it was too use I was keen to see if both Cameron and Kyle could hand wash some of their clothes….

Bundaberg Zoo

We have been to Bundaberg Zoo many years ago, before the floods. The other day we returned again to check it out – to see that they have recovered really well, and its still a cute little well clean well looked after place for such cute animals.

With the playground next door, and the walkway down to the Burnett River {great spot for fishing!} its an ideal spot for children as well as families {yes I enjoy the place just as much as they do}

Norval Park Yandaran

Yesterday we took off for the day! Well not the whole day cause I was lucky enough to have a sleep in – David took our boys outside of the motorhome quietly so that I could catch up on much needed sleep. Which was good but not good cause I really wanted to go out exploring another place, which we will have to do another time.

Norval Park Yandaran ::

To get to Norval Park Yandaran you drive from Bundaberg, taking the exit that takes you on the Mt Perry Road. Heading out to 1770, on the way you will pass Avondale Pub which is on the right – they have Free Over Night Camping there with Toilet facilities.

The Windows We Used Are No Good

In our renovations with our Motorhome David wanted windows from one Company but they didn’t have them in stock at the time so we went with Aussie Travelers Windows. Which was fine until we wanted customer service.

Well to be honest we haven’t been impressed with the quality of these windows from the moment they went in. They lost their Strip down the edge – the Fluffy strip that is attached to the part of the window that protects it as it slides when you are opening it and closing it. Which means that its scratched every single time you opened it and closed it.

Then there is the fact that our wind out windows down the back flyscreen has come away from the window – and it can’t be replaced easily.

Summer Days

We love it when its warmer – we can sit outside and we can cook outside. We love it cause we can cook on our Choofer and eat salads instead of Soul yummy food that makes us all feel so very full, but doesn’t give us a chance to lose weight!

David loves to experiment with cooking and herbs, and now that he is growing lots of different herbs in his No Digg Garden beds, we get to benefit with yummy tasting dishes.

Oh if only you could taste what we had for dinner – that’s what someone needs to create, an app that lets you taste the food you can see in a pic! Summer Days means later bed times, more quality time together, more yummier meals and more times around the fire!

Kenilworth Cheese Factory

On Monday we drove back to our motorhome from our friends place but wanted to cross off a Bucket List Place so we went from Clontarf to Maleny and then onto Kenilworth. We have wanted to drive the Mary River Valley way for so very long, and David has always wanted to check out the Kenilworth Cheese Factory.

It was the most beautiful Lush Green drive ever. If you are ever thinking about driving from Maleny to Gympie I would highly recommend Mary Valley Road as a way to go! The road is windy, and there is a section where its one lane, but I love how green it all is, how the Valleys are deep with many farms along the way – oh and the horses – the quality of the animals are benefiting from the lush grass.

Homesteading With Style {In Australia}

On Friday we had to drive down to Brisbane area for the weekend and we were so very lucky to be able to stay with gate crush  our friends property!

We have stayed with our friends before, and I know that they are super busy with moving but because I had to be at the Massage Course in Fortitude Valley both days, and we are no longer on the Sunshine Coast I was racking my brains for ages how to manage the drive down {it was over 5 hours Drive down!!! – Too many toilet breaks}, where to stay, what to do with David and our boys.

Small Motorhome Water Tanks

Now that our Motohrome is back David has been super busy trying to work on the issues that we have always had, and have always put up with! You know that saying “Never enough time when you have the money, and never enough money when you have the time” – yeah we have had lots of projects needed to be done on our Motorhome that the very Small Motorhome Water Tanks have always been pushed to the side and forgotten about!

The tanks have started leaking again – they leaked on/off over the years and he has repaired them that many times that its not worth fixing. He pulled the three tanks out – way to small for our sized family – and decided one of them is beyond repairing and has left the other two sitting in the grass underneath to see if the leak is now fixed.

DraughT Horse Heavy Horse Heritage Day

Last weekend we drove down to Apple Tree Creek {it was David’s Birthday weekend} for the DraughT Horse Heavy Horse Heritage Day which was not very well advertised because the week before we had been to Apple Tree Creek to meet up with another travelling family – to the very same location and there was no signage around to say what day it was on or time.

Luckily we have a family member who heard it on the radio and then I did a google search for the details – which came up with Central Queensland Information about the day! Glad we drove down there to see the Horses at work – it was beyond spectacular to see so many fine Draught Horses {Clydesdales} on display. Some were working in the main arena, some working on the field and then we were able to view the others in small enclosures with all of their information about their Proud Blood Lines, and who broke them in for harness.
