Reflections on a great trip for WUA 605

I write this from Ealing. The humans at least have safely returned although WUA 605 will be sitting in its container in the docks until a week  tomorrow when it will board a ship home. Unlike on the way out the container will be trans-shipped i.e. it will not come all...

Day 39 – 9th May – Binna Burra

Today was all about enjoying the facilities and in particular the walks around the lodge. Along with all the other members of the group, we were keen to see a Koala in the wild. Sadly it was not to be. They are nocturnal although they can be spotted in the day-time by...

Day 38 – 8th May Ballina to Binna Burra

After more goodbyes this morning we set off for our last stop which is a Safari Lodge in the rain- forest. We stopped at the Moomoo café for coffee and this is a place which has a lot of character as you can hopefully see from the photos. Essentially we retraced our...

Day 36 – 6th May – Mount Tamborine

It was a true early autumn morning on Mount Tamborine today. It was cool and slightly damp with beautiful clear blue skies and very soon it got quite hot. We decided to take the walk to the Curtis Falls and then from there on down the creek. The Falls were good to...

Day 35 – Noosa to Mount Tambourine

Today we had to leave Noosa for the next stop on our trip. The sun was out again and the hood was down all day. We have certainly enjoyed our time here – it is unusual for us UK Bristol tourers to stay in the same place for a week and we have enjoyed the variety. It...

Day 34 – 4th May – Rainy day in Noosa

Today was our final day in Noosa. We had no organised drives or outings and the forecast was pretty dire. One of the local highlights is the market at Eumundi. So we set off optimistically with the car roof down and arrived shortly before the rain. In spite of the...

Day 33 – 3rd May – anyone for Ginger?

Te feature photo today is actually from yesterday with some cars in from of the Bristol Beaufort aircraft. There is in Noosa a well-known hill climb up which cars race every so often. It has to be closed for such races but bikes and motor-bikes run up and down it on...

Day 31 – 1st May – Fraser Island

Today we had to rise at silly o’clock to enable us to catch the 4 wheel drive bus to Fraser Island at 6.15am. Uncannily, I awoke at exactly the right time to the sound of a bird which truly sounded just like an alarm clock – perhaps a parrot copying what it had heard?...

Day 29 – 29th April – Noosa

The stay here in Noosa is mainly about taking various drives out and about with the cars to enjoy what we are told is the beautiful scenery and fun roads. However today we have to display all the cars in Noosa Woods for the locals to admire, along with the Noosa...
