Australia 2003 - one month in Aus. All over W.A.

Part 1 - It has been 3 long years since I was last in Oz - but finally it was time to head out there and meet up with Meg who has been there since January. The plan was to spend some time in Sydney, and then head over to Western Australia for most of the time - because neither of us had seen it before, and that turned out to be the best decision ever.
We started off in Sydney with Megs 30th birthday and a big House party in St Leonards too. Had a few huge nights catching up with old friends from London who now lived in Oz, and a bit of sightseeing. Then off to Perth where we stayed with friends Paul and Ruth, then decided to hire a Britz camper van and headed all the way down the coast. Its such a wonderful way to see oz - you just rock up wherever you want, and travel at your own pace!We went to Banbury, Margaret river, the wine region that I really loved.
As usual, please enter any comments / thoughts in the guestbook. Don't forget to view Part 2
