Australia’s ‘First Couple of Camping’ – Mal Leyland and his wife Laraine – have just visited Eden and Twofold Bay, NSW as part of their travels in their Horizon Motorhomes Banksia and have told Time to Roam of their adventures.
Visiting Eden, the Leyland’s explored the Killer Whale Museum where they heard the story of Benjamin Boyd, a wealthy stock broker from London who bought land at Twofold Bay – and saw relics from one of the biggest whaling centres on display. They also learnt about ‘Old Tom’, a legendary killer whale who is the centrepiece of the whaling museum.
They witnessed the stunning sights of Twofold Bay from Boyd’s Tower, a 23-metre-high stone tower, a legacy of Benjamin Boyd, and when the wind abated, they came up close with the giants of the sea.
They enjoyed many seafood delights – scooping prawns by torch light and were treated to a tasting of the locally grown, Sydney rock oysters.
The Leyland’s adventures will continue in their Horizon Motorhomes, which Mal says they find very comfortable, with plenty of room for everything they need. Originally Kombi owners, the Leyland’s affectionally describe their Horizon as a ‘Kombi on steroids.’
Stay tuned to Time to Roam for more of their travel tales.
