Arriving into Brisbane, the rain decided to fall again. We booked to stay at the closest campsite to the centre; Newmarket Gardens Caravan Park. Very average site! My friend insisted that I had to go and check out the delicious desserts at the Chester Street Bakery on Chester Street. I took her advise and dragged […]Read more "Brisbane, another city"
Arriving in Surfers Paradise, the heavens opened and we got soaked in the midst of sorting out the camper van. It was not the welcome we had all anticipated. That evening George, with a little help from myself, cooked us a roast chicken dinner using a cooked chicken that we had bought from Coles. I […]Read more "Surfers Paradise with a lack of surfers spotted"

Unfortunately nowhere seemed to be open but luckily we found a map outside the information building. I wasn’t very impressed […]Read more "The Natural Bridge and all its shimmery goodness"

We saw two people land on the […]Read more "Coffs Harbour and The Big Banana"

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"
