Free Camping At Matilda

When we were coming back from New South Wales to Queensland – can’t remember when exactly! – we couldn’t keep driving as we were so exhausted. When we pulled into the Matilda Petrol Station we seen there was a Free Camping section so we were relieved.

Its a Free Camping Spot at Matilda – unfortunately there is no toilet facility near the free camping spot, but there is some where the petrol station is! Just a bit of a walk.

Bundaberg Show

We got to experience Bundaberg Show on Wednesday, with the sunshine out and the crowds not so busy, it was a perfect day out.

And even though I was silly and wore my black boots {with a small heel} it still was a fun filled day for my boys 🙂

We got to meet an amazing lady who travels with about 40 different animals in her 40foot bus!! Yep she travels with mini pigs, goats, sheep, chicken, ducks, guinea pigs and Alpacas. Has been travelling from Show to Show, to nursing homes and events for about 20 years. Even does a display of shearing the sheep, and sells the wool.

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.

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 🙂

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!

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!
