With the Christmas season upon us Caroline was attending her companies Christmas Party was on Friday 4th December at The Bathers Beach house in Fremantle, I had got home from work on Friday night and no sooner than I had opened the door and stepped out of my cloths I had been in all day the phone rang, it was Caroline, could I go and collect her. The plan was that she had a “cab charge card” so basically it’s a card that allows you to pay for the taxi that is pre-supplied by your company, it just alleviates cash we used them a lot when we used to work in Canberra and they are an excellent idea, but they are not that flash when the taxi’s just won’t turn up due to it been a ... read more

We decided to head to York and stop for an overnight stay at Avon Valley Park which was along the way. Using our 10 years out of date camp site book and a £30 Sat Nav we’d bought from Gumtree this was gonna be a g’day mate!! First drama... one hour from Perth we seen our first “Roo” close up.. very very close up!! Well I seen it - Phil was too busy tuning “Hits 666” on the radio. I screamed and Phil slammed on the brakes - we skidded across the road and nudged the Kangaroo, at least we know our Roo bars work K (No Kangroos were harmed in the making of this blog J (the old jokes are the best!)). Next the suiciddle Sat Nav tried to kill us taking the over a ... read more

After a spot of breakfast we decided to cut our losses and move on from Pinjarra. We headed back towards Perth and the first pit stop of the day was in Armadale. It was a nice enough place to visit but there was nothing standing out to warrant an overnight stay............nothing to see here people, move along. The weather was clearing and there was still unchartered territory around Perth that we had not yet conquered. We were making plans on the fly and started heading up into the Perth Hills and much like the Adelaide Hills it is a gorgeous drive. The first stop lead us to the Mundaring Weir and we took a stroll across the top of the weir overlooking the scenic dam and surroundings. A wrong turn then lead us to a charming ... read more

The grand old town of York Has four thousand men, Living at the base of the mount, In a gorgeious fertile glen. The convicts laboured hard, Building a rugged swing bridge Crossing the Avon river, Providing access east to west. The town still carries today, The heritage of yesteryear, Buildings restored in fine style, And lollypops wider than ear to ear.... read more

We arrived back in Perth on Monday, 15 September and spent the next week hunting camper trailers. We looked at a number of different new and used ones, but in the end settled on an Outback Deluxe model, which was very similar to the Cavalier model we had hired but suited our requirements slightly better. As well as hunting camper trailers, during the week we also made another trip to Fremantle and then Serpentine Falls. On Monday, 22 September we placed an order for a new camper trailer before heading up to York for three nights, staying at Rich's Cottage on the main street (Avon Tce). On Tuesday we walked along the Avon Trail to the suspension bridge and visited the York Motor Museum (Mark saw his first car, a 1967 Toyota Corona) before catching up ... read more
