WHERE ARE WE NOW?….Finally returned to Brisbane….

Returning from our year in Tasmania we arrived back in Melbourne on March 4 as the Covid situation was unfolding and headed around the coast eventually spending the lockdown period in Eden, leaving the Discovery Park on June 24.

Spending a short while exploring the South Coast as far as Lake Conjola we finally headed inland via Braidwood and Yass to Cowra for a week. From there via Sofala to friends at Glen Davis and finally via Coolah to the New England Highway at Tamworth and crossed the border into Queensland on July 31 with our passes in hand.  Until resuming our travels with some seriousness in 2021 we are staying and Southern Queensland doing some house sitting and catching up with family and friends.
