Mt Mee State Forest - Qld - April 2009
We had a lot of rain this Easter so our trip to Mt Mee was a little different from what we expected. It is such a short trip from Brisbane though, we will definitely return again when it is drier and warmer. Rocky Holes looks like a great place for a swim plus there are a number of good walks and lookouts. There are nearby attractions we enjoyed visiting including Dayboro (pub lunches, craft shops, antiques etc), wineries (meals, tasings). Have a look at our latest photos of Mt Mee State Forest .
Coolum, Mooloolaba and Noosa North Shore - Qld - March 2009
Two very different weekends on the Sunshine Coast - Mooloolaba was sunny and fine, Coolum was overcast and rainy. We went for beach walks and sampled the many restaurants and cafes along the beachfront at Mooloolaba. Our visit to Coolum was after a series of storms and close encounters with a cyclone which had left the beach severely eroded. The overcast weekend didn't stop us enjoying the beach and our drive along Noosa North Shore. Have a look at our latest photos of the Mooloolaba, Coolum and Noosa North Shore .
Boyd River - NSW - January 2009
Our first camping trip in 2009 and we are back in the Clarence River Region west of Grafton. (see below). A diferent river this time though - the Boyd River which snakes along beside the Old Glen Innes Grafton Highway. We have holidayed here a few times but there are so many great campsites that it is easy to keep coming back. We spent our days swimming, canoeing, exploring the area (Dalmorton, Guy Fawkes National Park and the 'convict' tunnel) and generally relaxing. Have a look at our latest photos of the Boyd River .
Clarence River Valley - NSW - September 2008
We visited this area in 2005 (see Clarence River Album) and in 2006 (see Gibralter Ranges Album) and liked it so much that we decided to spend 9 days camping beside the many rivers that converge in this region - Clarence, Mann, Severn, Guy Fawkes, Boyd, Nymboida. We canoed, fished (unsuccessfully), read books and basically relaxed. A new 'find' this trip was The Gorge, its waterfalls and stunning scenery. Have a look at our latest photos of the Clarence River Valley .

Conondale National Park and Kenilworth State Forest - Queensland - January 2008
Australia Day long weekend was a good excuse to go camping in the Kenilworth State Forest. We stayed at Booloumba Creek campground, swam in Booloumba Creek and did some bush walking in the Conondale National Park. Nearby Kenilworth offers cheese and yoghurt tasting at the Cheese Factory and there are some wineries worth a visit in the area.

Fraser Island - Gayndah, Queensland - 2007
We have been busy selling and moving house since returning from the Round Australia Trip in 2006 so we haven't had any major holidays just a few weekend away.

Swimming, canoeing, fishing, reading and 4WDing were the focus this holiday. Have a look at the photos of our trip from Fraser Island to Gayndah.
