Hi all,

We have just about come to the end of our 3mth working stint in Shepparton VIC (we ran out of $$$$). We are off to Tassie shortly and are looking forward to a new adventure. Just wanted to say that we have spent the last 3mths in the best caravan park we have stayed at (and we have stayed at quite a few!!!)

BIG 4 Shepparton EAST (Orrvale Road) - we have felt so welcome here, the managers and owners are so friendly - they have a Massive jumping pillow, great playground, solar heated swimming pool and giant chess - all great incentives for our girls to get the home schooling done in the early hours of the morning!!!! The amenities are always spotless and they are also building a new camp kitchen.

Kaye & Kym (the owners) are both well travelled and know exactly what people want/need in a caravan park. We are going to be sad to leave!!!

Just wanted to give them a plug - they so deserve it.

Cheers
Matt, Caroline and the girls

I reckon your going to freeze in Tassie at this time of year ;)

I hear it has been snowing down there already.

Cheers Kev

Hey Kev,

Yes it ihas been snowing........................ we felt the icy winds here Mon and Tues - today is a lot calmer. I believe it also snowed at Mt Baw Baw Monday as well. I grew up in the snow (UK), I keep trying to tell Matt and the girls is just cold and wet!!!!!

It will be a great experience and I can't wait to see Tassie!!

We have brought a lot of winter woolies.

Cheers
Caroline

We were in Tassie for a month, mid Feb to mid March. Great trip but a month is not long enough. We will go back again next year, but wont get a return ticket till were ready to come home.

Make sure you go to Bruny Is. Good bush camps down south.

Hi Tony,

We have heard two different stories 1. Tassie is small 6 weeks is enough, 2. you will need a few months there!!!

So like you - we have not purchased a return ticket!!! even if we need to work over there.

Will check out Bruny Is.

We are so excited I feel like kid at Christmas :-)

Cheers
Caroline

Matt & Caz,

I came to Tassie for a break 30 years ago, didn't leave and still have not seen it all although I am getting close.
If you are able to take your time and speak to the locals, either on the forum or in the towns, for the better ways between locations you will love it.
The weather at this time of the year is the most settled although cooling off like Victoria and won't really get cool until after Anzac Day. As much as I prefer the cooler weather (coming from WA) we leave for our big lap in 4 months with plans to miss the next 2 winters.

Enjoy

Lynds

Hi Lynds,

We board the spirit on the 3rd May!!! we are originally from Sunny QLD so it will be cool for us (we have stocked up on winter woolies and I bet I put on 35 kilos with eating to keep warm!!!).

This morning at Shepp it was 6 degrees. Matt and the girls have never really experienced the cold.

Happy, safe travels - 4mths will pass by quick and you will be off.

Cheers
Caroline
