Sydney in winter, what’s not to like? I am back where the adventure started but not quite at the end just yet. Have spent the last week in Sydney getting a few things organised. Had a bit of jobs list, one of which was opening over a years worth of post – there was nothing … More Almost back at the start
Wasn’t quite ready to wave goodbye to the coastline so drove a little further north to Cape Tribulation. Loved the Daintree Rainforest, it’s a slightly ravaged, often luscious and in combination a beautiful colourful natural mess. One morning I was sitting on Cow Beach, watching this guy fishing with his dog, think it was Tuesday, … More If you go down to the woods today………….
I think this post will be brief for a number of reasons: 1) details are sketchy and 2) details are sketchy. However somethings will forever be etched on my memory. Had my first fly in vistor at the weekend in Cairns. Maeve Fogarty landed once the bats had let her through onto the runway and we … More Weekend at Bernies / Cairns
I don’t normally take advice from registration plates, but in this case I felt obliged. It was time to park up and maintain a healthy 180deg position on the sand. Found some great spots to sit a read a few books, one of which I started last year! When did I stop reading? Anyway I … More Relax it’s Queensland…………..

In the meantime, here are some pictures I … More Postcards from the road
I got a recommendation to head to Finch Hatton, north west of Mackay. There’s a gorge there well worth a look and this morning after I recovered my composure I went to look at some platypus and turtles in Eungella. Now admitedly, I have woken up in some strange places over the years, but I … More One good detour leads to another………..
So, just over a week in and already a deviation from the plan (as bald as it is!) The weather wasn’t co-operating with my beach plans, so I headed inland to a place called Carnarvon Gorge. My photographs don’t do the place justice, it’s a spectacular spot and well worth a visit. Spent a few … More The first detour……..
Heading north from Brisbane, the plan was to stretch the legs at the Glasshouse Mountains. However, was quite an overcast wet day and lots of the trails were closed, so the upshot was the golf got a wash and the mountains were barely visible – Next time! Am already amassing a list of things to … More Slow day on the Sunshine Coast
Howdy, well I have been scared witless and learned something new, both of which while enjoying great company since I was last in touch. The fear started the moment I parked outside Dreamworld and could see the rides. Aisling assured me there was nothing to fear – she lied, twice in fact because I later found … More Something old…….something new
