Four days into the holiday and our first report – we are relaxing in our old age!!
Stayed at Lake King Caravan Park at Eagle Point, a place we have been to several times. Only a few powered sites, facing the beautiful lakes, but just when you are thinking that nothing changes, we were hit with the price! $50 a night!! Nevertheless, it was a great location, not far from home. Dogs allowed, also fires, at this time of year.
The weather was cool, with a freezing wind, but at the camp, it wasn’t too bad at all.
The next day we had another short stint to Eden, but decided to give Two Fold Bay Caravan Park and Resort a try – loved it, although no dogs allowed, for those who are interested.
The weather had improved and we decided to stop for lunch at the Drummer Rainforest picnic area, set up very well with several tables, a shelter and a 1km walk through the rainforest. The walk crossed the Thurra River several times, which made us remember the camping area in Croagingalong National Park. We stayed there for a couple of hours, did the walk and the rest of the trip was only 90kms to Two Fold Bay.
A very well set up park, with a blackboard reporting that the whales were present, but not when we were watching!!
Headed off in the morning for our one-week destination – Murramarang National Park Resort, but we were constantly stopped with road works, slowed down with hills and arrived, after such a small trip, tired, disappointed with our destination. We redeemed the day, by grilling cheese-topped oysters and opening a lovely bottle of rose.
There is a different feel to this park and our reserved site was impossible to get the van into, as well as not being level, sites unclearly marked, confused people as a result. Fortunately we were able to swap to the only unreserved site – right opposite the kid’s playground. Things to have improved by finding all our surrounding campers very nice, a restaurant and cafe here and the flathead and chips for lunch were delicious.
My back has let me down today, but Russ walked to the nearby beach and took a few snaps.
We are located in a ‘bad’ spot for TV, so Russ has installed an Ap on the iPad, so we can watch the grand final on Saturday. Pretty clever isn’t he???
