We have enjoyed the many kms that we have traveled around Australia, in our Camper which we named ZOE 89. We like to see what has not been seen before .. keeping away from the "tourist" spot where possible. Those many back roads, never in a hurry, not concerned how short my driving might be during the day. BUSH camping where possible, and exploring the little known settlements. The LOCALS seem more than willing to give good advise. Where ever you may go, GO - not thinking what should be there, GO - see what is there. Remember over time, things and surroundings will change. It would be GREAT if those posting photos would put the first COMMENT, and say a little about the place.

...This building was built in 1958, and was known as the Awapuni Baptist Church ... which functioned as such until the early 70s ? then moving to larger premises. The property was sold, becoming the Greek Orthodox Church.

... Back in November of last year (2012) we called in here, it was thje day that they were demolishing the toilet, to build a new one. I posted a earlier picture of them doing it.

... St Marks was established in 1888 with the opening service held at 3pm on the 13th of May 1888.

...The Woommargama Station in the 1800s cover 100s of klms of land .. the SIGN says --- "this elm tree was planted by the Podmore family around the 1800s. Over the years the tree was the place to meet and soon became known as the MEETING TREE. Children used to meet and picnic here. Lovers used to court here. Horses were tethered here during church services. Under this tree was also the place where the workmen would gather to wait for their orders for the day. The "boss" from Woomargama Station would ring through orders, at around 7.00am, to the overseer who lived in a house nearby and had the only phone in the village. The overseer would pass on the orders to the workmen who would them head off to work"

... I would add this piece of information --- "Barbour Park is ideally situated in the township of Gunning next to the picturesque Meadow Creek. Barbour Park allows for free camping or a stopover for a maximum of two nights. Facilities include hot showers, toilets and free barbecues all within a short stroll to the two great cafes, hotel and specialty shops. The swimming pool is open over the summer months"
