Crossing Australia

To kick off a new series of posts of living in a campervan, I’m going to detail instructions for tinting your windows. It’s quite a simple procedure although skill and experience get it right, it is easy to mess up.

The benefits of tinting windows is numerous and those benefits are amplified in a campervan for a trip across a hot country.

Hello Sydney

February 26, 2010 · 6 comments

The final day of the adventure and our progression to Batemans Bay last night paid off as the highway direct to Sydney was closed due to an oil tanker which crashed (unfortunately resulting in the death of a family skidding on the oil) the previous night on Princes Highway.

A Taste of Eden

February 22, 2010 · 17 comments

Today’s adventure was a break from driving very far, a place called Eden looked like a good place to stop. With a population of 3,000 there wasn’t much to do or see, there was however a very nice beach.

I don’t think I need to add any more…

Now this is a catch!

We left to make a move towards Sydney to give our last day a short drive and arrived at Batehams Bay. Population 16,000 this place is a bit bigger then Eden and we arrived by a fishing area for the night. Whilst I was completely unsuccessful at fishing, the guys next to me lost a very large creature (almost 2M long) and managed to catch a sting ray and small shark (seen to the right), kudos to them!

Leaving Melbourne

February 19, 2010 · 4 comments

After a good few days in Melbourne, which I really enjoyed, it’s by far my favourite city in Australia so far (and I suspect will remain that way) and catching the movie ‘Avatar’ in 3D at IMAX (Melbourne has the 3rd worlds biggest flat screen there) we headed off to our final destination: Sydney.

Off To Melbourne

February 15, 2010 · 5 comments

We spent a couple of days in Adelaide (separate post on the city later), visiting the sights including the zoo, pictures from that will be mid-week photo essays (first week is my more stylish photos, second week is sleeping animals and third week is the best of the rest).
