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!

Oodies Cafe A Touch Of Culture In Bundaberg

Today we finally stopped in to Oodies Cafe in Bundaberg – I have wanted to stop there for so very long but time/plans haven’t allowed us. Today David and I wanted some much needed “Us Time” as we haven’t had any in so very long, and now that we have a new baby in the house we were craving time together without our boys/baby puppy dog!

Now to find time to go there on a Friday night with out the kids – A real date with just the two of us, good food, wine/beer – heaven on earth! Yeah I don’t know when we were ever get the time for that but hey I can dream can’t I?

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.

Toowoomba Japanese Gardens

After we stopped and spent as much time as possible at Picnic Point Toowoomba – at the lookout, the playground and then had lunch in the park, we decided to head to Toowoomba Japanese Gardens to check out the beautiful grounds. There is a cache there but my phone wasn’t able to pick up the location no matter where I stood, we walked on many paths and it kept on jumping – sometimes if there is too many tall trees, or over cast day the GPS on the geoaching app can’t work too well!

Picnic Point Toowoomba

After we had been driving all day from Bundaberg to Childers {for a petrol stop}, on to Ban Ban Springs for lunch break, to Nanango for a coffee break we were heading to a free camping spot past Toowoomba but our Campervan had other ideas!

David had replaced the Carburetor in the Campervan before we left on our trip. It had been running rough for weeks, and we knew it had to be done. Unfortunately it was still running rough but I had done a trip to Brisbane and back the weekend before with no issues, so we headed off with confidence that our old girl would make it to Sydney and back no issues.

But we were about 30 minutes to Toowoomba when she was sucking in air, and not getting enough fuel {or getting too much at once}. We pulled into a Petrol Station in Toowoomba, thinking a good quality fuel might flush the issue through. But after filling up she crawled the car park area and stopped. RACQ was called – we are Premium members and have been for years, it has saved our butts big time so many times over the years.

Bundaberg to Ban Ban Springs

We left Bundaberg on Monday morning – at half past {family joke} – and headed to Childers where we filed up with petrol. Then drove on through to Ban Ban Springs for Lunch. We didn’t have a set plan, but did know that we were hoping to look for a free camping night.

But we are very flexible with our plans, which is good because when you travel around Australia anything can happen.

Today we woke up to the boys excited screams! They seen “Nosey” shake her back legs, and make some really loud noises, and then she went down and then stood back up. We Had A Baby and we didn’t even know it was pregnant. Its the sweetest thing ever, and our boys got to see a live birth – best homeschooling lesson ever!
