    Miriam Vale Pub QLD -Mitch Brennan

    Miriam Vale Pub QLD -Mitch Brennan

    We’re on a 'zig-zag' tour of Australia keeping a very close eye out for the smaller, less commonly mentioned locations… like Miriam Vale, a very pretty little Queensland town located roughly halfway between Bundaberg & Gladstone.

    WikiCamps and various Facebook groups recommended Miriam Vale’s local pub would be a great place to stay overnight – taking advantage of the fact it’s a free-camp AND there is a bit of an implied hint we could return the favour by purchasing a drink or two and even a meal. :-)

    Turns out that was a great decision because not only were the meals we ordered typically huge and 'country style yummy' but we also learnt a lot about the town and its history from locals with our special guest & pub owner, Mitch Brennan.

    Sadie...Lost Then Found! - Babinda FNQ

    Whether you are travelling with pets or just 'at home' the loss of any much loved K9 (or feline or feathered friend!) is devastating. But what was amazing is that we were doing an overnight 'free camp' at the very popular Babinda (FNQ) Rotary Park when Kaye spotted some excitement in the car park. It was obvious 'someone' was VERY happy to see this dog again... but why?

    Dream Weaver - Dave Kirk

    Dream Weaver - Dave Kirk

    "Follow your dreams!..." That's exactly what Dave Kirk reckons is the 'secret' to a happy life - and that's just what he's done too.

    We met Dave & his lovely wife Marie at the Cool Waters Caravan Park in Cairns FNQ. Kaye was out walking one afternoon and heard someone playing guitar - pretty well as it happens!...

    Given her curiosity and love of music she went and checked it out and the rest of the story is in this podcast with Dave.

    From 'hitting the road' at the tender age of 14 to writing and recording several CD's Dave has an awesome story to tell.

    You can check out his CD's here: https://davekirk.com.au/

    All About the Minjil Indigenous Dance Group - Carl Fourmile

    All About the Minjil Indigenous Dance Group - Carl Fourmile

    Most of us have seen the dances and heard the songs of aboriginal people around Australia complete with didgeridoos, clapsticks and fire.

    But what does it all mean?

    Well recently Brian was out riding his bike in a local park and managed to bump into Carl Fourmile - literally! - Carl is a Yidinji man from the land of Gimuy. Gimuy in case you didn't know is Cairns in Far North QLD :-)

    Carl's passion is for his people and their history and through regular performances of indigenous dance and story telling in Cairns he's creating a greater connection and understanding of Aboriginal culture for all Australians and international tourists alike.

    Last Friday Brian caught up with Carl again after one of the Minjil Dance Group's regular performances at the Hilton Hotel to see and hear first hand what the does.

    Surprising Way Teacher Inspires Kids - Robyn Robinson

    Surprising Way Teacher Inspires Kids - Robyn Robinson

    After finally selling their house in Bendigo VIC, Robyn & Pete Robinson hit the road running with their much loved pooch Paddy. Both do occasional work on the road to help the budget but recently Robyn was offered an opportunity in a very remote part of Australia - Aurukun - a mostly indigenous town just a short 13.5hr drive from Cairns FNQ or 44hrs from Melbourne! Robyn is a qualified teacher and Art Therapist and is no stranger to working with indigenous people. She also has a great website called Kajeet - www.kajeet.com.au - where you can find out more about Art Therapy and its healing qualities.

    In this short podcast we managed to have a quick chat with Robyn to discover more about how they got on the road and WHY she is now off to Aurukun and what she'll be doing there with the local indigenous population - something she is very passionate about.
