Anticlockwise but not anticlimax.
Rolling out for a little mental R&R.
We are turning for home today. Plan to spend tonight in Jugiong and then roll up the highway to Canberra on Sunday morning. Despite the grim tide of suffering that is engulfing the world right now we have had a most excellent and uplifting trip. But it seems like the right time to return home. […]
We are in Beechworth today. In the midst of ‘Kelly Country’. Perhaps no other Australian narrative has been as polarising or emotive than the life of this iconic bushranger. Not really knowing more than a bare sketchy outline of the Kelly story I visited the Ned Kelly museum and found it so compelling that I […]

Enjoying a coffee in the beautiful (and very Sunday drive popular) town of Healesville. Map: Healesville Will this be our last coffee stop for a while? I don’t know. But the COVID-19 situation is unfolding quickly now. I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of non-essential public services, retail, gyms, schools and businesses are forced […]
Port Albert. It was only a short distance down the road from our last stop. So we nearly did not turn off to visit Port Albert, but Kelly talked me into it. Turned out to be a beautiful town with a large spacious park that allows free RV parking overnight. Bugger. Wish we had driven […]
There is a storm front moving through, with high winds predicted. So tonight we have opted to hunker down in a safe little van park in Yarram, a small farming town in the southeast area of Gippsland Victoria (pop. 2,135). Map location: Yarram Victoria 3971 Our agenda includes laundry, long hot showers and lounging around […]
