Heading North for the winter

Like many Victorians, we like to travel up to the north of Australia during our southern winter. Most years we hitch up our caravan and head off when the weather starts to cool, and our plan this year is to travel through Victoria and South Australia to the Northern Territory and Western Australia, and particularly the Kimberley region where we plan to camp out along the Gibb River Road and visit the many attractions there.


These fabulous sculptures are made in Wycheproof. I would have loved to take one home with me for the garden.

First night

Wycheproof, Vic

The start of our trip brought us to Wycheproof, an interesting little town where the train line runs down the centre of the main street. We woke to a misty morning, a reminder that it was time to move on.

Our next stop was at Hattah Kulkyne National Park where we camped on the edge of the lake and enjoyed our first campfire of the trip.

The morning was cool but perfect.

Again this was a brief one-night stop, since the warmer weather is calling and we have a long way yet to travel.

    • Thanks Nicole. The sun breaking through the morning mist looked amazing. It’s a privilege to be able to camp in such a pretty spot.
