Having spent the morning and early afternoon around Torquay and at Bells Beach we pushed allong the road a little way to Aireys Inlet.

We were fortunate to find Tooradin, a little town on the map with not much in it save a petrol station and a couple of shops and cafes. According to our trusty, if not slightly out of date, Camps 4 guide and map there would be somewhere to have a quick shower and use the […]

Having left Phillip Island Emily and I decided to head to the Melbourne area for a couple of days. Emily wanted to visit the Victoria Market, which was vast and one of the best markets I have seen, well worth a visit. Obviously my desire to revisit at a more sedate pace was fuelled by […]

Recently I popped in at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in Hobart Tasmania. Apart from the historically rich and exciting exhibition about Tasmania’s intriguing history the art gallery upstairs held some treasures.
