After Peter’s birthday in May 1988 we went by train to Murwillumbah. We had a sleeper compartment on the overnight train. Our new car, the Nissan Pulsar GL, went with us on the train!

Caroline took this picture of us after we had arrived in Muwillumbah.

Caroline liked that our train had had a dining car!

From Muwillumbah it was not far to Queensland. Our destination was Brisbane. At the time there was the 1988 EXPO in Brisbane. We had booked accommodation very close to the EXPO. There was heaps to see for us at this EXPO. A few days later our car took us to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

Here we stopped our car to have a look at the Glasshouse Mountains.

We stayed in a cabin on the Sunshine Coast. There was a swimming pool. The water was rather cool. But Caroline dared to go into it for a bit.

We visited the Big Pineapple Farm. There was a Bamboo Forest close by.

Martin, Liz and Tristan lived in this house in Tamworth at the time.

We stopped there to say Hello.

It looks like both Caroline and Tristan love to help in the kitchen.
