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.

Baffle Creek Raft Race

Every year they have a Baffle Creek Raft Race where you can build your own, or turn up and they supply all the stuff needed to make one on the spot and race {its called a “Dogs Breakfast Race”}. We haven’t even been up to Baffle Creek before so I was keen to see what the town was like. We decided to join the Bundaberg Homeschooling group who were staying on a friends property for a spot of of Free Camping!

Baffle Creek Raft Race ::

Cameron and Kyle did make rafts at Grandma and Grandad’s place but they didn’t end up using them. Instead everyone got together and made one that could hold 5 of the homeschooling boys.

Weekend In Brisbane

On the Weekend I had to be in Brisbane for my Diploma of Remedial Massage. It was not a fun filled weekend, it was very full on without much time for David and I to relax and enjoy time together. Which was such a shame, but that’s life.

We stayed at the Mantra in Spring Hill – booking our hotel on Wotif because it was the cheapest hotel they had – but the lack of food choices nearby was so disappointing.

Mind you we did hit up the Eat Street Markets on the Saturday night for dinner, and that was such a good decision because they have so many amazing choices. With so much different food on offer it took me three times walking around and 30 minutes to decide what to eat – I get confused if there are too many choices!

Fred Haigh Dam

I have wanted to drive out to Fred Haigh Dam for so very long! Its been on my Bucket List for so very long, but things happen and we haven’t been able to drive out there – and believe it or not we had to go through Gin Gin to get there – and found two caches at the Rest Stop.

We are super excited because we have found our first “Trackable” and our first “Travel Bug” – Kyle and Cameron had no idea what either one meant, and to be honest neither did I, so I had to do a fast google search.

We have contacted the owner of the “Trackable” and he has agreed that we are allowed to keep it with us for the time being, and will be taking it on a special trip soon! Lets see how far it can travel – it came from Sweden so far! And has been in Queensland – lets see where it ends up.

Some Of The Geocache We Have Found

In the last three weeks we have been Geocaching as much of Bundaberg as Possible. We are trying to cross off all the Caches in the area, to have lots of “Smiling Faces” on our Geoache.com account!

Along the way we are able to see more of Bundaberg, discovering places we have never seen before. And learning along the way – we homeschool with what we see and do as we are out and about. Learning all day long, the best way to homeschool.

Some Of The Geocaches We Have Found ::

We won’t share the exact locations cause we don’t want to spoil it all for you, but we will show the pictures of our finds.
