Lucky Joey

Meet Elly the 3 week old Joey. Elly is an orphaned wallaby who’s life was saved by a local wildlife volunteer. We came across Elly and her surrogate dad on our walk along the foreshore in 1770 Queensland. There she was snuggled up in her substitute pouch, suckling on formula milk made by the kindly…

Magic on Lady Musgrave Island

Now that we are official residents of Agnes Water QLD, (we actually have a proper house now and a PO box and everything!) we knew it wouldn’t be long before we had our first visitors. Our dear friends and my godson trekked all the way from Sydney to check the place out. So it went…

We’ve run away to the circus! 

Well actually we have invested in 10 lessons in Circus Trapeze Training. “Why on heavens name are you doing that?”, I hear you ask! Well, I would like to say it’s because I want to build my strength, my courage, my stamina and to face my fears, however the real answer is, “Because it’s there!”…

Our New Magical Home

After deciding that the paradise town of Agnes Water in Queensland was the place Glen and I definitely wanted to put roots down and live, it then took a whole two years to actually get around to doing it. Well, we did have a lap of Australia to complete, not to mention a tour around…

Sharing the Dolphin Magic

Feeding the dolphins seemed like a good idea until I discovered it was best to get up at the crack of dawn, because when the dolphins show up, and that could be anytime once the sun’s up, they want their breakfast. It isn’t a usual thing to feed the dolphins in Australia, in fact it…

The Magic continues….

  It’s not everyday that a possum falls on your head! One night, before I was about to go to bed, I was emptying a bucket of water under a tree and the next thing I know, a baby possum had landed onto my head! I screamed which made the poor thing fall into the…

The End Of The Road

15 months and the road has now finally closed, and it did almost literally. Our final hour was quite dramatic. We left Byron Bay after visiting friends and soaking up the Byron vibe, then took the back route through the hills towards Brisbane which was to be our final stop point. On the way, we…

Animal Magic

We have experienced so many amazing wildlife encounters during our trip around Australia, for me it’s been the most exciting part of our adventure. Here’s the highlights Kangaroos Koalas Kookaburras Pelicans Possums Quokkas Stingrays On the road Wallabies Whales Wombats Horses Goannas Frogs Fish Emus Echidnas   Donkeys Dolphins Pets Cows Chooks Camels Rabbits Birds…

Walkabout

Glen and I had the absolute privilege to spend a day with an aborigine elder. The elders name is Stuart and he is only 31 years old, however he is a stage 3 initiate of his people that date back tens of thousands of years. He is also the father (and step father) of 5…

Beautiful Blue Mountains

Jakkie writes……. So, we continue onwards and upwards towards the finishing line, retracing the land we couldn’t fully appreciate on the first lap. Our first lap was getting from Sydney to the Gold Coast as fast as humanly possible without breaking our necks and the speed limit. We had 12 hours to pay for and pick up the vehicle that was…

The Full Circle

We have finally completed a lap of Australia…..14 months later. Although technically we haven’t fully completed our journey until our Dreamtime motorhome gets back to its original home where we bought it. However Glen and I set off from Sydney on the 18th March 2016, in a hire car with all our wordily goods squeezed…
