This is our last blog unfortunately, because Russ has had a few health issues and after doctor’s visits and blood tests, we have been advised to return to Melbourne. Nevertheless, it hasn’t stopped us having a good look around this lovely area.  We drove up to Mt Warning and, with intention of doing the Lyrebird […]

After we realised that Pate and Barb weren’t returning (and there were no more questions, for us to answer from Pete’s occasional stubby bottle tops), we started planning the next few days.  Thanks to Pete, we had enough wood for our fire for the next few nights, which were needed as the weather had cooled a bit.

Our caravan park is right on the Clarence River and the sunsets have been beautiful. Yamba is at the Northern end of Yuraygir National Park and we went into Angourie Bay, (Angourie meaning ‘loud ocean’), and Mara Creek picnic area in the national park.  The weather is cooler after a change and the wind is […]

We arrived at the Saltwater Caravan Park, a few kilometres out of Yamba, last Thursday.  Pete and Barb have a great site, with a view of the river and some marshy land, where water birds can be found, most of the day.  We are camped next to them.  There are a lot of birds all […]

A cold front came through after our last blog, so we had an opportunity to catch up on our housekeeping – washing, shopping, cleaning etc., meaning that we had a day home, but warm and feeling virtuous. I noticed a hairdresser near the bakery that we go to, so I made an appointment to have […]

Marg on 26 July 2015

After an easy 202 kms, we arrived at Forster (pronounced ‘Foster’), with the temperature of 18 degrees and the prospect of improved weather, we were allowed to choose the site we preferred, only one row from the water.  There are a lot of cabins and retirees here, but our site is very large and we […]

We had two lovely sunny days (whoopee).  The camp ground looks entirely different with the sun filtering through the melaleucas and she-oaks and the owner has been laying screenings over the road, so we shouldn’t have any problems getting out. We visited Greenfield’s Beach in the Jervis Bay National Park a few days ago, when it was […]

Marg on 1 July 2015

Headed off last Monday week, having decided to go up the East Coast.  Lunch was at our usual stop, Rosedale, where we always buy one of the bakery’s famous pasties. Our first camp stop was at Stratford, just out of Sale.  We stayed there for two days and found it to be very relaxing, with […]
