Welcome Back On The Sunshine Coast !!

Mar 5  After 207 wonderful days on the road and numerous adventures with some lovely friends met on the way, and experiencing glorious weather for the vast majority of the time, we think the Sunshine Coast could have put on a better welcome home !!

Glen Innes – The Celtic Stones

Mar 4  The Australian Standing Stones at Glen Innes began as an ambitious project by a small but dedicated group of local citizens who wanted to mark Glen Innes’ Celtic Heritage. It was in Australia’s 1988 Bicentenary Year that the Celtic Council of Australia developed the idea of erecting a national monument to honour all Celtic peoples who helped pioneer Australia. Glen Innes responded with a 46-page submission for Australian Standing Stones, inspired by the Ring of Brodgar in Scotland’s Orkneys.



March 1 to 3  Tamworth is the Australian Country Music Capital and home to the largest country music festival in the Southern Hemisphere. The city has an extensive repertoire of attractions from the natural wonders of Mother Nature to its cultural and artistic offerings, as well as top restaurants showcasing regional produce and wine. It also has one of the greenest golf courses we have seen – sampled by Bob with not much success.
