On Saturday we had to be on a Farm outside of Cowra, and I so wanted to be there before lunch time…..but Kids, Hubby and Travelling -Stopping too many times along the way we made it by 1.30ish!

Wollongong To Cowra ::

David used our Camp 6 Book to plan our Trip {we have Camp 7 But Still Prefer the smaller size of the Camp 6 Book} and we set off about Β 7.00am, only an hour after we had planned to leave. Yeah our Plans need to be flexible when we have kids!

We drove through Robertson, then onto Goulburn, stopping at Yass and then heading up to Cowra….we were staying on a farm 30 minutes out of Cowra.

We didn’t get far….

Our First Toilet Stop Was Robertson ::

It seems we will either travel Australia via stopping at parks or by finding toilets!

The Big Potato

THE BIG POTATO

Greetings From Robertson – The Home of the Big Potato.

On the back of the big Potato there looks like it might have had two doors – maybe an entry and exit? Not sure but there is concrete now added to the frame work of the Potato?

Next Stop Was Goulburn ::

Where we went to Rocky Hill War Memorial, so that we could over look the Goulburn township!

From there I was so very keen to get on the road, without wanting to stop anywhere {David’s Birthday surprise was waiting for him after all!!!}

But again we had to stop, stretch out our legs and find some lunch. And it was like we were meant to be in Yass. There we found another Bedford Motorhome, and meet the amazing Aine Tyrrell who is from Ireland, living and traveling Australia with her three children….singing along the way! Actually we are enjoying her YouTube Channel….Kyle {our 9 year old} wants to learn how to play the whistle after listening to her playing!

Canola Flower Field

CANOLA FLOWERS

From Yass to Cowra we saw lots and lots of Yellow Fields – Canola Flowers…..which turned into a Homeschooling lesson on how the flowers were grown, dried out and turned into Oil with the big machines that were sitting there waiting!

Not exactly sure of the location but we think that the fields were in and around Tangmangaroo.

We had three magical days on the Farm….will be sharing more pictures and stories about our long weekend.

One thing – the weekend went far too fast, there was too much road to cover in that short distance. Wished we had longer to see our second son….wished we had longer to explore Cowra! Maybe another time.

Have You Stopped At GOULBURN?

Or Yass?

Or Spent Time in Cowra?

    That field of canola flowers was absolutely GORGEOUS! I have to tell you something very funny from a reader’s perspective. You write “Our First Toilet Stop…” and then there was that picture. Sorry, it made me laugh out loud, Lisa πŸ™‚ That was really cool on The Rocky Hill War Memorial and another beautiful picture with Goulburn Township. Enjoyed this very much πŸ™‚

      Yeah I guess it was funny the way I wrote it πŸ™‚ !!!

      The Canola Flowers Fields were incredible – so yellow and so many of them. I really would like to return to Goulburn another time, we didn’t get enough time to visit everything.

      At the Rocky Hill War Memorial there is a Museum that I would like to return to – it was too early for it to be open when we were there.
