We often see the grey nomads
as they travel through the land,
Towing vans or driving motor homes,
along the route they’ve planned.
For after years of working hard,
at last they’ve time to go,
Travelling round Australia,
with their motor homes in tow.
If they begin their journeys
in the Autumn, they head north,
Right up the eastern seaboard,
they eagerly set forth.
Our Autumn weather’s usually good,
so they don’t need to worry.
There are so many things to see,
So why be in a hurry?
By Winter they reach Queensland
and avoid the winter weather.
They often make friends on the way
and they tour awhile together.
Later they head to Darwin
and no doubt they’ll hope to spend
Several weeks at Kakadu,
exploring the Top End.
Next they might head to Katherine
and visit Nit mu Luk.
They’ll see aboriginal cliff paintings
which tell stories like a book.
On south they go to Alice Springs,
then to Broken Hill and Bourke.
It’s time to head home for awhile,
for their house may need some work.
They stay home for a month or two
and catch up with family.
Then they’ll head off after Christmas
south to the High Country.
Over the next year or two,
they’ll travel all around.
For right across Australia
Grey Nomads can be found.
