Just back from five weeks in eastern Australia.

First visit to the country and I have to say I was very impressed with some great places to visit.

Lucky to have daughter acting as tour guide and chauffer so managed to get to visit a few places off the normal tourist trail, including the cattle station she has been working on for the last eight months.

Very friendly hosts who served us delicious home grown lamb from their 92,000 acre farm which they said was quite small compared to some of the neighbours!

Tried very hard to get to the Special Olympics "Soar&Roar" Charity Day in Sydney but was at the cricket in Brisbane the day before.

Certainly looking forward to a return visit in the not too distant future.

Glad you enjoyed the trip but you did miss a great day at the Special Olympics Charity Day. We could have got you on a hot lap of the track - next time. drive

Glad to hear you had fun - if you enjoyed the east you'd love the west!

That would be quite a lot of carrots!

30,000 acres bigger than the County I live in and they only have 7 people living on it.

It was a very interesting stay, the farm has been out of production for at least the last 30 years and has only started to be brought back in the last couple of years, so daughter is now an expert in mending wind water pumps.

There was a lot of wildlife in and around the house, a lot more than we were expecting to see, but other half was somewhat surprised to find a snake in the hen coup when she went to collect some eggs, they didn't tell her it was an Eastern Brown Snake for a few days!

It was a great trip, but could not get used to seeing Christmas displays when the temperature was 27C.

My eldest girl has just returned from meeting her sister in Melbourne for a New Years party. She also visitd Adelaide, Flinders Range and some other nice spots west of Melbourne like the Otway fly treetop walk and the Great Ocean Road. She was quite happy with all the impressions she collected.
So many great places in Australia and so little time available to visit them...

Many thanks to everyone for all your kind recommendations and tips!

(Our ‘Melbourne-daughter‘ will spend two weeks in New Zealand in February with her friend so the exploration of the other side of our world continues )
