Rushing home via Gulgong, Goolgowi and Gol Gol

A Covid outbreak and the subsequent restrictions cut our trip short and we had to rush home. By coincidence our overnight stops were small towns all starting with G: Gulgong, Goolgowi and Gol Gol! While we were relaxing and enjoying the Myall Lakes area, we were keeping an eye on the news relating to aContinue reading “Rushing home via Gulgong, Goolgowi and Gol Gol”

Scenic Myall Lakes area

A visit to the scenic Myall Lakes area, including day trips, walks and birdwatching. Due to flood damage in March, all of Myall Lakes National Park was closed. Instead, we chose to stay at the Sandbar and Bushland caravan park which was close by, in a nice lakeside setting and close to the coast. ThisContinue reading “Scenic Myall Lakes area”

Rainforest walks, rain and fog in the Gloucester Region

We walk among Antarctic Beech trees and around an old goldmine site which is being reclaimed by the rainforest.

Adelaide to Canberra: 1200 km over 3 days

Driving 1200 km over some long, very straight roads from Adelaide to Canberra. Over the three days of using eight fast chargers, we didn’t once have to pay for charging. We decided to break the 1200 km drive to Canberra into three roughly equal stretches. This trip relied on access to fast chargers (installed byContinue reading “Adelaide to Canberra: 1200 km over 3 days”

Why we chose this EV and camper?

Our car is a 2020 model Hyundai Kona with 64 kWh battery. We previously owned an older Nissan Leaf with a 24 kWh battery. The Leaf had a range of around 100 km, whereas the Kona has a range of around 450 km (in typical city driving). This is a huge difference! Most of ourContinue reading “Why we chose this EV and camper?”
