Northern NSW , Coffs to Yamba and Brisbane.

Wow a 3 months since the last post, how time flies. Where to start, we travelled south after the Big 4 at Wooli , had a booking at the Sapphire Beach Resort. just outside of Coffs Harbour . Very old tired park Sloowly being renovated. They started with the pool 2 years ago and I […]

Big 4 Wooli

Lovely park and a world away from the other option we had here at Minnie Water. Lovely laid out grounds, neat pool, the obligatory jumping pillow for the kids, free kayaks, mini golf etc, etc. Fabulous camp kitchen with a full licensed bar over which operates all peak and some weekends. Not forgetting the Wooli […]

Brunswick to Minnie Water

After a very interesting drive from Brunswick we finally arrived at Minnie Waters. We took one of the secondary routes of the Pacific Highway to avoid going through Grafton. Pleasant enough but definitely the road less travelled. We came upon a sharp right turn and were confronted with the Briner Bridge a 110 year old […]

Final days at Brunswick

Day 3 in paradise

Took a leisurely stroll with the dog into Brunswick, passed under the bridge from the RV park along the river until we reached the Fisheries Co-oP.  From here was a case of negotiating the no dog signs which are just about everywhere. Interesting that the RV park which is council run accepts dogs, not sure […]

Away at last

Dear all, well finally feel like we have started, now in Brunswick Heads, not that we have not been here a dozen times but there is something about seeing that sign that says New South Wales Border that makes you feel you are actually going somewhere. As usual our trip was not without some drama, […]
