Life on Farewell and Narangie Stations for 4 weeks

This month was full of new things for me… first of all, Farewell is about 100 km away from the town of Winton, half of it on gravel road with dips and grids. No problem at all with driving 80-100 km/hour on this kind of roads down here!

20150412 Tropical Queensland

When we landed in Cairns we felt the weather difference… so hot and humid! A feeling of barely being able to breathe for a few minutes when we went outside of an air-conditioned building, but so nice after a few cold days down on the Bellarine Peninsula.

We stayed in an hostel not far from […]

March on Bellarine Peninsula

We landed in Melbourne on the 5th of March, and spend 3 days there before heading to Faulty Towers.

We hung around St Kilda, at Luna Park, the beach, the parks… where we met one penguin in the evening!

Back to Auckland – 22/02/2015

In Wellington, we went south to find a free camping area, still quite close to the city, which was pretty interesting. It was, as all the time in Wellington, pretty windy. But we appreciated the view on the Cook Strait at the end of the day.

South Island, Part6 – South East, Mount Cook and back to Wellington – 15/02/2015

We started the last part of our trip with driving down to the southern most point of the south island of New Zealand, Slope point. There, there is nothing. A long gravel road leading to sheep fields and a bit of rocks, with a sign posted in the middle…

Well, […]

South Island, Part5 - Milford Sound and Stewart Island - 07/02/2015

After the epic adventure on Skippers Road, we drove further south and aimed for the Milford Sound road. We stopped on the way at Steve and Kelly’s house to say hi and enjoy a nice tea and cake. For those who don’t know, Steve is the brother of Geoff from Warkworth lodge! My last adventures […]

South Island, Part4 – Pancake rocks to Queenstown – 04/02/2015

We started our exploration of the west coast at Pancake rocks and then just drove south, with a few stops on the way. We experience our first really rainy day in Hokitika, where we spend a big part of the afternoon in the library for Wi-Fi internet and charging laptops and camera.

South Island, Part3 - Christchurch to the West Coast - 01/02/2015

The way down to Christchurch through Lewis Pass was nice, but nothing really special, just a nice long drive between small mountain ranges, along rivers, through the forest…

In Christchurch, we could sleep at Selwyn council free campsite, which was quite nice considering the proximity with the city.

We walked through Christchurch, and I have […]
