The tunnel through the aquarium - sharks, turtles and big fish on one side, smaller fish on the other.

Townsville has many beautiful buildings built during the 1870's  gold rush at Charter Towers. Townsville was the port for the gold. Gold is still mined at Charters Towers.

April 2015 - heading north for the winter page 2

Kiama.               I stayed on the southern coast of NSW until after Easter.
Armidale                                       These are some of the country towns I stayed in on my way to Queensland.


I am now house sitting for 10 days on 50 acres near Toowoomba, Queensland. I am looking after a cattle dog, 2 cats and 3 horses. The setting is very peaceful.

After Easter, I headed inland and drove north  through country towns to Dalby, Queensland. The old pubs in New South Wales  have interesting and varied designs.

Gulgong is a small historical town near Mudgee.
