Brisbane Ride – Ride Report #26

October 3
Today was a very hard start after last nights mammoth drinking session with Jim and Snake. Today we left at 9am, the latest start since we left Sydney some five weeks ago. Leaving Cairns we could not help but notice the green, so much of it compared to what we have bad been seeing in the past weeks. We rode almost non stop to Townsville where we stopped and had lunch and dropped into see Craig from Remote Area Divers. After a good [more]

Perth Scuba Cleanup

It was a case of second time lucky with the weather for the “Aussie Fundraiser” on Sunday and the weather this time around was perfect. The event was a joint effort with Dive Ski & Surf (Dive Locker Fremantle) and Perth Scuba (Dive Locker Canning Vale).

The idea… To do a clean up event for Project AWARE’s Dive against Debris at the same time as raising some money for a couple of very deserving charities. [more]

Last day in the bush – Ride Report #25

October 2
Leaving Karumba we headed off back towards Normanton and back onto the Savannah Way passing through, lovely Glenore Crossing and stopping for fuel at Georgetown a population of 200, one being a very nice guy from Singapore who was running one of the two gas stations in this small town. After Georgetown we then stopped at the Undara Volcanic National Park and took a two hour tour through the Larva tubs, interesting, lots of wildlife in the park. [more]

At the Queensland – Ride Report #24

October 1
We were up at around 5am this morning, thinking of getting an early start with all intentions of going up to Karumba north of Normanton, north mid Queensland. It was a bit frustrating as we needed a little oil and the service station although awake, lights on and several staff, they would not sell us anything till 6am, not even if they were ready. A country town attitude we are learning to (slowly) to accept as the way it is, why, don’t ask! [more]

Into the North – Ride Report #22

September 28
Leaving Halls Creek this morning at 5:30am we rode off wondering what our ride would bring us today. The past two days had been full of adventure, but the riding from Port Headland to Halls Creek, as much as we enjoyed it, was starting to be much the same. To our surprise it did change in so many ways. First we started to find the road was no more long straits as it has been in so many places.[more]

Pitstop – Ride Report #19

September 24
Left Karratha for Port Headland only two and a half hours away where we would stop, meet up with my brother Graham who I have not seen for years. The ride was nice, much of what we have seen on the previous days, very enjoyable. Riding into Port Headland you could see it was all mining and not much else. We stopped at an information center and called Graham, who said stay where you and and don’t go anywhere. During our five [more]
