Eggbert was superseded by Bertie, the Billabong Caravan, and is the new bigger and better version! Geoff and Varena are still on their big trip - into their eighth year! Heading from Darwin to: Bungle Bungles, Tanami Desert, Alice Springs, Dalhousie Springs, Woomera, Lake Eyre, Nullarbor, Western Australia, Eyre Peninsular, Melbourne, Canberra, Blue Mountains, Bourke, Cameron Corner, Toowoomba, Tully, Birdsville - who knows what adventures they will have, or how long they will be on the road?

11th October 2016
finally got to Floriade today. The weather was sunny & not too
windy, & it was early in the week so not busy either. The predominate
flower seemed to be tulips; they were everywhere.
I headed to Mount Taylor. I was hoping to find the Purple Donkey
Orchid, but I had no luck. Once again I need to go with someone who
knows whereabouts on the "hill" they grow, as it is a BIG
& I headed out for dinner with Keith & Carol. They live in
Queanbeyan, so we met them at one of their favourite places, Walsh's
Hotel. They do huge, tasty meals.
Walking around Floriade
As usual, Keith and Carol were good company for the evening. And Walsh's Hotel does huge meals, so all went well.
