Road Trip Part 12 – Kiama

From the free maps and guides I got at Foster the day before, it was obvious that Kiama was a “must-stop” at place along the way and it turned out that way. A beautiful quiet peaceful seaside town with charm, ocean waves and natural beauty. From my petrol stop at Nowra, Kiama was a mere Read more about Road Trip Part 12 – Kiama[…]

Road Trip Part 11 – Narooma, Ulladulla and Nowra

I had heard of neither location. Nowra Ulladulla or Narooma. My solo road trip was well underway though. I had left behind the states of Tasmania and Victoria and was now back in New South Wales. I had just watched Spain beat Honduras 2-0 in the World Cup and drove for a breakfast stop at Read more about Road Trip Part 11 – Narooma, Ulladulla and Nowra[…]

Road Trip Part 9 – Flashback to my Childhood at Marlo

I grew up and was raised in Marlo, a small housing area in Kilmaine in the south of Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland. That is where I’m really from. This year I have thought about my childhood a lot, probably too much. I liked some of it, but not all of it. I miss the Read more about Road Trip Part 9 – Flashback to my Childhood at Marlo[…]

Road Trip Part 8 – Lakes Entrance

From Bairnsdale there wasn’t much further to go to a small seaside resort called “Lakes Entrance.” In Australia place names are misleading and at times ridiculous… Lakes Entrance does actually fit though, as the inlet at this settlement is in fact where the entrance to the lakes from the Bass Strait (the bed of water Read more about Road Trip Part 8 – Lakes Entrance[…]

Road Trip Part 7 – Fuel Stop At Bairnsdale

A longer pleasant drive brought me to the city of Bairnsdale. Undoubtedly the largest settlement on this route I was taking. A blurred sign of the “Welcome to Bairnsdale” sign on the way in. It took me a while to drive through the carriageway through the city, which had many residential suburbs. A war memorial Read more about Road Trip Part 7 – Fuel Stop At Bairnsdale[…]

Road Trip Part 6 – 90 Mile Beach Start

At a lonely farming community called “Woodside”, we see the first sign dictating the “begin” of 90 Mile Beach. A famous long stretch of beach not to be missed on Victoria’s south coast. I found a lonely car park by Woodside beach. Name sharing itself with a discount store in my home town of Bangor Read more about Road Trip Part 6 – 90 Mile Beach Start[…]

Backpacking in Yarram Australia

Road Trip Part 5 – Yarram

I decided to stop at Yarram. There wasn’t anything special to see there, but it was a random spread out town in Gippsland, South Victoria. It was just a sunny winter morning and I only stopped to walk around and take a few photos. Here’s what I saw… Shops on the main street. They look Read more about Road Trip Part 5 – Yarram[…]

Road Trip Part 4 – Tourist Information at Foster

    There was always the option to incorporate a trip to Wilson’s Prom into my road trip.    Wilson’s Prom is Wilson’s Promontory National Park, which has a lot of animals and also the marker of the southernmost point of mainland Australia.   Hardly anything exciting for me when I’d already past Wilson’s Prom Read more about Road Trip Part 4 – Tourist Information at Foster[…]
