Fun, Friends and Fish

Lincoln National Park


The Eyre Peninsula continues to surprise and stun us with clear waters, beautiful beaches, rolling hills, friendly folk and abundant wildlife.

We spent four nights over Easter at Lincoln National Park, where the girls made friends, as kids easily do when camping.


A generous family from Arno Bay took Lee on their motor boat, gave him some tips and he came home with fish and squid for tea.

Then we headed to Coffin Bay Caravan Park for much-needed showers. On the way I did a big shop at Wollies, our last major grocery store for about 1,800 Ks. Hopefully Lee will catch more fish!

Coffin Bay is a picturesque town, known for oysters. We had a dozen for $9.50. Yum.

We also camped around the corner at Coffin Bay National Park. From the kayak we saw several sting rays.

I'm a Brisbane-based writer and mother of two children--one deaf and one hearing. I'm also a sessional academic at the University of Queensland, where I teach literature and creative writing. In 2016, my husband and I took the kids out of school and travelled around Australia with a camper trailer, visiting deaf schools along the way. When we found Toowong State School, it was so good, we decided to move to Queensland! We still have the trailer and take off for the bush whenever we can.
