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!

We Are On Trip Advisor

New Life on the Road has been out and about, exploring the area {when its possible} of Bundaberg and have shared our reviews over on Tripadvisor.

Are you on Tripadvisor? We Are On Trip Advisor and would love to connect with you there!

We have lots more to still see and do in Bundaberg, and we will again share those reviews when we can! Until then we are super busy with Geocaching, Homeschooling, caring for the property we are staying at, along with helping David’s parents as much as possible.

Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary

The other week we drove down to Maryborough {once again!!!} to meet up with a Homeschooling group who organised an outing to Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary. So glad we made it – our GPS took us to the wrong location at first so then I used my GPS on the phone, and 30 minutes late we finally arrived.

Our boys love meeting other homeschoolers, and they love Animals. So I knew that it was going to be a fantastic day out. And it was such a great little Sanctuary, one with many sweet enclosures, and one we could even walk through {which was very scary but I put on my big girl pants}

Bond Store Museum Maryborough

I know that I was meant to share our day down in Maryborough weeks ago, but I am not sure why, I just cant seem to get myself motivated to get online at the moment and blog! I am feeling like there is no point, cause how many people are reading these posts anyway??

Which brings me to the question – Do you read New Life on the Road blog? Are you are new reader, or an old time reader {following our journey for sometime?} Would love to know you, where are you when you are reading the blog posts? What are you doing in your life at the moment?

Bond Store Museum Maryborough ::

When Cameron had to be down in Maryborough for his end of Year March Out Parade David, Kyle and I decided that we had to fill in the time with something interesting – Cameron had to be at the Parade Grounds by 10.30 am and then we didn’t have to be back there until later afternoon.

I looked up where to go, and realised that the Bond Store Museum Maryborough would be ideal, along with the War Museum which was across the road. And I am sure glad we did because if you are ever in Marborough then we highly recommend getting the Pass to see all three attractions – Customs House Interpretive Centre {which unfortunately for us wasn’t open that day}, Bond Store Museum, Maryborough Military and Colonial Museum.

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}

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.

Our Motorhome Is Back

We have tried to have Our Motorhome back with us {since December it has been stored}. Not sure if any of our friends realised but David went down to Sydney a few months ago to replace the Fuel Injector Pump with the one that was always in the Bus – it had been rebuilt a few times and cost over $2000,00 {I think it was closer to $3000.00} but was still not working.

When he went down {a few months back} and fitted the Injector back into the Motorhome she was still making a weird noise, and he was not sure if the problem was fixed. But decided to see if he could bring her home and hit the highway. But soon realised that there was an issue and so he had returned back to the Storage Facility.

Love On Bruce Highway Gympie

As we have been driving back and forwards for weeks on end for Family reasons…..actually it was about two months of lots of driving from the Sunshine Coast and back up north…I have driven past Hell Town Hotrods so many times {one day I will stop to check out that amazing place} and we have seen the Love Heart across the road from Hell Town Hotrods but I haven’t been able to pull over to grab a picture.

Until Friday!!! I seen the Love on Bruce Highway Gympie in time for me to actually pull over safely, jump out of our Campervan and grab a pic or two! The farmer in the paddock has my heart….

Abbey Medieval Festival

On the weekend we kept a promise to Kyle – he had seen that the Abbey Medieval Festival was coming up in July and he begged us to take him! He loves all things about the Medieval times {and Kombi Vans!} so it was a wonderful day to see him enjoying each store, every hands on display and waiting the Real Sword Fighting!
