South Yunderup Holiday for Martin and Josh


Martin and Joshua Cullum are brothers who live together in a shared  living home with two other housemates. They have been wanting to have a holiday for a long time together and recently after a lot of planning had 2 nights in a holiday home on the canals near Mandurah at South Yunderup. 

This is their story.

We left the house in Gosnells on Wednesday 23rd October and traveled to Mandurah stopping for lunch on the way.   Arriving at the holiday house everyone was keen to have a good look around and explore the house whilst putting favourite items from home in our holiday rooms.

After having a cuppa it was time to explore the area and went for a drive around the area before returning and Josh wanted to some more exploring outside on the jetty at the back of the house with Jo (support staff) and watch the boats go by on the canals whilst Martin assisted Paul (support staff) to get ready to cook a BBQ dinner which he was very impressed to serve to everyone.

We all went to bed a bit later than normal after the excitement of being in a new house and fell asleep very fast and had a great night’s sleep.

On Thursday morning it was up for breakfast which was exciting as there were ‘holiday cereal’ choices in little boxes to pick from and then a relaxing time out on the back deck.   Later in the morning we all went on a Dolphin Cruise which was a new experience. We sat out on the outdoor section of the boat, feeling the breeze and the fresh air.

We then headed off to the Ravenswood Hotel for a fish and chip lunch and a tall lemonade which was thoroughly enjoyed.  Happy times.

In the afternoon we had some chill out time at the house together.

We all then went out for dinner at the local Sandy Cove Tavern. Great food and memories.

Another exhausting day for all.

On Friday morning we headed to the Murray River for a walk and Ice Cream at Pelicans on the Murray.   After this it was time to head back to the house to pack and head for home.

It was a fantastic break and we can’t wait for next year and another short stay holiday and a new adventure.

A special thanks to Jo and Paul.
