Jan 27, 2018 - Days 1 - 7 UPDATE NOTES

Hi All, Here we go again another trip, another adventure, more to explore, people to visit, photos to take and things to be done. Hopefully this trip will be about 3 months, travelling down the east coast of NSW then having a good look around Victoria. Apart from the 1st week the next 4 will be focused on visiting family and friends down the NSW coast. The first week was planned to start very intentionally to unwind from the rigors of retirement with a week in a favorite spot 280kms south of home in a caravan park. The park is very big with...

Mar 20, 2014 - Visit to Yvonne & John's

After a gentle start we followed Yvonne & John up the coast to their home which is in a beautiful area surrounded by trees and wildlife. We really enjoyed spending time with them and enjoyed a lovely lunch in their local RSL, similar to our British Legion. On the way back we stopped to see the Big Banana which is a famous local landmark - it is indeed very big. We have had such a great time here and, once again, family have pulled out all the stops to entertain us and we are so grateful.

Jun 11, 2010 - Surf Camp Was Freezing But Fun!

Early Thursday morning, around 6.45am, we eventually left on the bus from the Oz Experience office in Sydney. Everyone was new to each other and everyone was either tired, asleep or hungover so no one really got talking until after a couple of food stops, and then new friends were made as soon as we hit the Bottle Shop to share some beers ready for Surf Camp that night. We had a really great driver called Deano and he booked us into hostels and trips for Byron Bay, and there was Woody and she did a bit of the driving as well. On the way to...

Dec 22, 2008 - Byron Bay to Arrawarra, QLD - It's all about the lifetsyle!

Headed down for an early stroll around Byron Beach and the town centre where we amazingly bumped into Olie (Tim's flat mate from 1st year at uni!). We knew he was in Oz but had no idea we would see him here. We then boraded the bus for the drive to Arrawarra for surf camp at Mojo Spot X, on the way stopping to look at a giant prawn... We arrived at the surf camp after 2 PM and immediately headed to the beach for a spot of sun worshipping before returning to camp to kit up and get ready for our surf lesson. After 40 minutes of crap chat...

Mar 27, 2008 - Surf Camp

Sad to leave Byron so soon, I got on the bus with our new driver 'Sonic' for our 3-4 hour drive to Mojo Surf, which is by Arrawarra Beach. When we arrived we dumped our stuff into our rooms and half an hour later started our surf lesson. There was only 8 of us and as I had left Byron before everyone I didn't know anyone on the bus which felt quite odd. After a short talk we went and got our wet suits and boards and made our way to the beach, where we had a theory lesson - practicing on the sand. Then we went out into the water. The first...

Oct 8, 2007 - Arrawarra, Australia

Drive from Ballina to Arrawara...... We made several stops on the coast. We also stopped at a gallery that featured Australian artist and Susan bought a nice water color that depicted Australia nicely. After that a light on the dash came on indicating that the batter was not being charged. We found out that the latch for the hood was broken. So I made no more stops until we got to the rv park. Once there, I turned off the ignition and started the engine. The light didn't come on again, so all seems to be well. Susan then fed some of the...
