Shoalhaven Heads- NSW South Coast, Fitzroy Falls, Berry, Kangaroo Valley, Australian Tourism.

Such a pretty area, it's hard to pick a favorite spot. We have based ourselves at Shoalhaven Heads in the Mountain View Resort.  Good spot. We have done a day trip up to Fitzroy Falls (Moss Vale Rd, towards Moss Vale) and through Kangaroo Valley. Back to Kangaroo Valley for lunch, then across to Berry and back to the air-con in the caravan. Such a pretty drive through the mountains. Kangaroo Valley is stunning. Green on green, and then greener. Lunch at the Kangaroo Valley Hotel was lovely. We enjoyed a leisurely stroll down the main street popping into some of the local shops. The wood crafters shop with rocking horses out the front got out attention as we love all things timber. The lolly shop was another we couldn't walk past and came out with delicious, cold ice creams in cones. We then enjoyed a scenic drive to Berry which was much larger than we expected, and tourists certainly know about this spot as it was teeming with people. We drove through but didn't st

Nelson Bay, NSW Coast, Australia.

This summer is shaping up to be one of the hottest in years.  Inland temps are consistently in the high 30's to mid 40's. Not something we get on such a regular basis.  The coastal regions whilst also getting hit with higher than normal temps at least has the advantage of the sea breeze. In our caravan travels up the east coast to the Sunshine Coast for Christmas we had intended to come back south via the inland routes.  Then we checked the weather forecast......high 30's to mid 40's....consistently....not for us. Whilst it is not unusual to hit the mid 40's on occasion, this year it seems summer is vengeful as inland temps are regularly hitting the mid 40's C.  Too hot for this old girl, so back to the coast we go! Yes it's hot on the coast also, but not as hot and we have the double advantage of a cool sea breeze and a lovely cool ocean to swim in. Whilst on the Sunshine Coast you may get jelly fish, we have moved south to the mid north coast and are cur

Great Places To Visit - Doncaster East, Melbourne, Mullum Mullum Walking Track

Just because I'm currently in the city for awhile doesn't mean I have to "miss out" on my daily bush walks. Nearby to us is the Mullum Mullum Creek Trail. It's fantastic for walking. A track shared by walkers, joggers, and cyclists.  Right beside us is Currawong Bush Park and the track goes through it. In the other direction it heads off through parklands in Doncaster East and Templestowe.  I'm certainly enjoying my daily walks now that I've discovered this trail. Have a look for yourself, it's very picturesque. I have found myself talking to walking groups, people walking dogs, a quick "hello" to cyclists and walking alongside fellow walkers and having a chat.  It seems to be a very popular track.  Today I even passed a group of Bushwalkers!! Well, they passed me as they were going in the opposite direction. I stopped and chatted with a lady who was out walking her dog and then enjoyed the beautiful scenery as I continued along. Great way to
