Part 2 – Coming home Monday, 26 Oct 2015: Fremantle to Augusta (~400 km) We left Fremantle around 8am, down the Kwinana Freeway to Bunbury. It was cloudy but dry.

Across the Nullarbor and back – October 2015 – Part 1

Bruce and I drove to Fremantle to visit Peter and Kerrie and the family. The trip Sydney-Tumut-Fremantle-Tumut-Sydney was 10,500 km in all.

Far North Queensland

At the beginning of June, Mum and I (and, for varying portions of the trip, my Uncle Eddie and Aunt Pam) had a holiday in Cairns, Atherton Tableland, Cooktown, Port Douglas and the Daintree. It was warm and we had blue skies every day – returning to grey and rainy Sydney was a bit of […]
