bust.

as we were coming south towards sydney we just had to stop in ballina. we don’t know how remarkable or otherwise unremarkable ballina may be but it is the birthplace of thorny, our kimberley karavan (yes, with a ‘k’). that industrial looking grey place in the background is where the magic happened. past tense is…

byron pay.

byron bay is the quintessential hippie location on the east coast. scratch that: in all of australia. this place is so chilled time slows as you approach it. in our case we actually lost one entire hour coming from queensland, but that’s a totally different story. time is an illusion, my friend. i still remember…

welcome home?

we’ve crossed back into new south wales and we found the welcome less than stunning. storm clouds? really? we’d turn right around but we really hated the traffic jam we got into through brisbane and the threat of thunder and lightning seems benign in comparison. traffic jam! – we haven’t seen one of those since…

70 kilometer beach.

that’s of course not it’s actual name; while australia joined the metric system decades ago (a very sensible move unless you like to count feet or stones to work out how long or heavy something is) beaches are still named in the old imperial system, which would make this the 43.49598 mile beach which just does…

endangered species.

kimberley kampers, the manufacturer of our beloved thorny, has gone into liquidation. the writing has been on the wall for a while; the company went into voluntary administration late last year, but everyone was hoping they would be able to get back on their feet. unfortunately it wasn’t to be. this doesn’t really have an…

takarakka bush.

we went for a long bush walk through carnarvon gorge today, a really long one. and i must admit, i’m unsure which one i liked better: the takarakka bush retreat or the walk through carnarvon gorge. both were great and are highly recommended. we had been told that the vegetation in carnarvon gorge is similar…
