First thoughts of Byron Bay, as we arrived early afternoon, were ‘what is this place’ closely followed by ‘why don’t people have shoes on’ and ‘that’s a lot of crusty looking dreadlocked hair’. We tried getting into the Arts Factory hostel to camp in their car park. They charge $7.50 for Jucy camper vans to […]Read more "Byron Bay, where people don’t wear shoes"
On arrival we headed for Park beach that was opposite the campsite that we had decided to stay at. It was very windy so sunbathing was not a relaxing experience so I wondered along the beach with George, finding a little starfish and some shells along the way. We saw two people land on the […]Read more "Coffs Harbour and The Big Banana"
I don’t think we could have broken down in a worse place. We ended up being stranded in a town called Kempsey that literally is the most boring place on earth. Even the information centre in the town told us there was simply nothing to do there. The camper van company put us up in […]Read more "Kempsey and why to avoid it! "
The drive to Port Macquarie was tiring due to the pouring rain but I I managed to find us a nice place to stay called Aquatic Caravan Park. In comparison to what we had been used to since the beginning of the journey, this was heaven. It had clean and spacious showers and I think […]Read more "Port Macquarie and it’s wonderful camping spot"
I saw mainly the insides of wineries on my visit to Hunter Valley. I was the boys taxi driver for the day and sadly we didn’t go to the ones that offered spectacular 360 views of the vineyards like I had wanted to. The plan was to head to those on the second day but […]Read more "Designated driver in the Hunter Valley"
The next designated stop on our wonderful list of places to see was Newcastle. Most of the boys were a little sceptical because there didn’t seem much to do their that interested them. I encouraged the stop off and I think the others were happy we went. Newcastle itself seemed like a lovely area. We […]Read more "Is Newcastle worth a visit when traveling the East Coast?"
After a few days of nine stop rain we finally left the Sydney bubble and headed for the blue mountains. The journey was surprisingly short, about an hour and we had arrived in Glenbrook. We decided to stop off here to ask at the information centre what the best places to visit are and to […]Read more "The beautiful blue mountains"
I enjoyed a lovely stroll through the botanicals gardens in Sydney the other day. It was my day away from the camper ‘crew’ so it was very peaceful. The gardens are filled with all sorts of plants, herbs and even a variety of different grass grown in different parts of the world. […]Read more "Botanical Gardens, Sydney"
Whilst I was in Sydney, George and I went for a meal at the Meat District Co restaurant in Darling Harbour. Firstly, the harbour area is well worth a visit. It has beautiful boats moored up and lots of nice restaurants that allow you to sit outside and watch the world go by. On Saturday […]Read more "Review: Meat District Co"
The rain unfortunately forced us to stay in Sydney a little longer than we had planned. By we I mean the camper van ‘crew’ comprising of Tom, a ginger guy who needs to be looked after on a regular basis – like a child. Kieran, the youngest of the group. He is growing his hair […]Read more "How I ended up on Scotland Island…"
