So goodbye to Sydney and a car hire adventure.... Some 90 minutes from Sydney, close to Newcastle we arrived at Treetops for an activity break in the middle of a rain forest... Harnessed up and wearing an unbecoming safety helmet we were invited to climb trees, cross between them on high wires, on bits of wood tied together, and abseil from one to another. It looked like fun on the videos but it was more like hard work, especially in 30 degrees with no reward, to me. I did ...
... and got really drunk with us haha. Our second day we drove to a really beautiful bay and went on a dolphin watching cruise! We saw about 10 dolphins in a group all swimming beside us! They also had a waterslide in the back of the boat that we went down and landed in a big net that the boat was pulling and just kinda chilled out in the water being pulled by this massive boat, it was amazing!!!

This was just an update on our progress or lack of. We will be sending a blog very soon showing our overseas friends our lovely part of the world, which we hope you can visit. Some say it is called Lower Heaven.
Big news, today we picked up Mr Brown, he will now live in the shed with us. Who's a lucky boy? Russ is so happy, he has his best friend back
Love from Sue and Russ.

... Hunter. We thought it was strange as we had seen very little in the way of sweeping valley's and vineyards. He told us the largest percent is made in the Barossa. Why is that not a surprise!

Honestly Hunter is nice but give me The Barossa or McLaren Vale SA any day!
