This is the Touring Wombats (Neil & Merrisa) travel blog for our 2020 East Coast of Australia & Far North Queensland adventure. We left home on 20th June after the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic curve had flattened, the state borders were opening up again and it was winter in Melbourne, so we joined the thousands of grey nomads heading north!

Since we began our journey back in June the “2nd Covid19 wave” hit Victoria and things were a bit difficult – being a Victorian. We were soooo lucky to spend most of our time in Queensland; the safest state to be in at the time. We have now returned home in Melbourne, after 161 days on the road.

cheers, Neil & Merrisa
