The Easter School Holidays had us off in the caravan for two weeks. First stop was Yamba then onto the Gold Coast for a week of fun! This was certainly a different trip to what we normally take. We tend to head west away from busy crowds in school holidays but this time we stayed on the coast with everyone else!! We joked about this trip being the "kid's holiday". Why you ask? That would be because of the two caravan parks we stayed at and the enormous [Read more...]

December 2013 YARROWYCK CROSSING RESERVE Yarrowyck is a free camp on the banks of the Gwydir River. Peaceful spot with not many other people camped while we were there. No showers however there is a pit toilet. Being December it was fairly hot but the river was lovely to cool off in - kids had a great time! On the way home we had a flat tyre on the camper coming down Walcha mountain - fortunately it happened in a good spot where we could pull over with room to change it!
