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 ::

The Best Surprise Ever

Sorry I have been very quiet on here! But I was very busy keeping a secret from my family. A few people knew my secret, and the weekend was a success and so much fun, I am so very grateful for my boys! My second son made my Delayed Mothers Day Gift – the best ever this year, with a trip from Brisbane to Sydney possible to attend my Oldest Woody Son’s Surprise 21st Birthday Party.

At first we both thought that we {David and I} would be missing out on our Oldest Son’s Surprise 21st Birthday Party and I was so very upset that I wasn’t going to be there for the big event. And I had tried many different ways to make it possible for us all to go but with Studying, David’s working and not having anyone to look after our younger two the best solution was for me to fly down for the weekend, and spend it with family.

Cataract Dam New South Wales

Yep I am still trying to catch up on our travels down in New South Wales with a trip that we had to Cataract Dam! Oh gosh I so miss Wollongong, we got to see so much while down there. Can’t wait to be able to catch up on our travels from our Campervan travels {a few days before Xmas we left our motorhome in storage and traveled all through NSW – QLD sleeping in our Campervan/Tents and loved every minute of it! Best moments ever, and can’t wait to experience more.

Cataract Dam New South Wales, a day where I spent it with family to say goodbye to them before we left the area. One where our boys got to spend it with their cousin and uncles – it was a great day! And I am so glad I have photos from the day, all of our boys will have the memories to look back on.

Melbourne Has A Piece Of My Heart

Melbourne Has A Piece Of My Heart

Melbourne is one of our all time favorite cities, and one we love to visit. Its a special place – its the City where our Two Oldest Son’s went to for basic Navy Training. Its the place where both boys made all of their family super proud with their Navy graduations – oh gosh do my Boys Look good in Navy Uniforms.

And its also where “World Vision” head office is – a place that is very very special to our hearts.

Yes we love Melbourne and we will always will. Even though we haven’t been there since our second son’s navy graduation we can’t wait to get back there.

Its My Bus And I Am Going To Cry If I Want To

Normally I am the strong one in our family – The One Who Has To Hold The Shit Together when its hitting the fan. The one who finds solutions when there is an issue to deal with, the one who looks at the bigger picture and finds answers that will work.

Yesterday, My cup was empty, and there was nothing to refill it back up.

Well Friday I didn’t. I didn’t hold it together at all. Its My Bus And I Am Going To Cry If I Want To !!! You see I had unpacked our Campervan stuff back into our Motorhome Monday morning. I had packed up our Motorhome for a trip north – we were going to head out on the road either Wednesday or Thursday.

These Are The Things That Piss Me Off ::

We have been told {and have heard others say about us} “Oh you don’t even travel”

I guess we fly from place to place then?

or we get this one {regularly} “So when are you going to get on the road”

{S**T Don’t say that one to me anymore…cause gee what more can I say? We don’t have a fixed address?? We are on the road to somewhere all of the time}

Macadamia Castle

With our crazy travels from Wollongong to Queensland – after our Bedford Comair Motorhome broke down – we were all staving by the time Breakfast came around! And then we seen a Sign “Pancakes at Macadamia Castle”. Actually Nicholas had seen the sign 120k’s {on the side of the road} for the Castle Breaky and wouldn’t let us stop anywhere along the way.

He was keen to try the Pancakes and I was keen to see the Castle, it was on my “must see” list from when we went past it last time, yet I couldn’t remember where I had seen it but just wanted to make sure I didn’t miss it this time.

Camp Quality Convoy

I know that this was AGES ago, and we are no longer in the Wollongong area but I was looking through our great photos from Camp Quality Convoy day and I remembered that I hadn’t shared it here on our New Life on the Road blog.

Considering we have SO much to share about our travels from the Illawarra area to Bundaberg QLD to back down the Sunshine Coast area, and considering we have power for the time being {will share more soon about where we are} I am going to try and finish up our wonderful travels in New South Wales so that I can start sharing our more recent travels.

Camp Quality Convoy 2014 was huge, way bigger in support then 2013, and I reckon that 2015 will be even a bigger year. And the support is really important because the Children in the area benefit from the fundraiser.

Wollongong Was The Best Location For Travel

I am looking through our Photos from the last two years and I have to say that we were so very lucky to be staying in Wollongong! Its almost like we lived in the Best Kept Secret city ever.

Actually I think that Wollongong Was The Best Location For Travel for all those who live in Australia. Its ideal location means that you can be in Sydney within 1 1/2 hours. Or be down South to Kiama, Gerringong, Berry, Nowra, Basin View, Ulladulla, Eden, or even as far as Mogo <——– the Place we started our journey!

Then you can drive up to Robertson, Kangaroo Valley, Mose Vale, Bowral, Mittagong, Thirlmere, Picton, Appin, Thirroul, Shellharbour, Albion Park – so many locations, so many wonderful places to explore.
