On The Road Again...

Upon leaving Sydney we collected our campervan which is home for the next 6 weeks. We have been driving up the East Coast for just over a week now, and I've already managed to smash one of our windows. Typical Lucy. Nothing that a bit of waterproof sheet and cloth tape can't fix!

Regardless we've managed to make it up to Yamba, NSW. Sam and I were hoping to do some surfing lessons here, but a storm has rolled in leaving us with torrential rain, lightening and thunder for a few days. Boring! This last week we had beautiful weather though so I can't be too disappointed. 

Our first couple of nights were spent at Cessnock Showground. We explored the Hunter Valley doing a Cheese & Wine Tour with 'Two Fat Blokes', such a laugh! We're supposed to be on a budget but ended up coming home with 3 bottles of wine, 2 blocks of cheese & some crackers for dinner! The following day we headed up to Newcastle, past Lake Macquarie and spent the night at One Mile Beach, Port Stephens. Port Stephens is a beautiful place. We climbed Mt Tomaree and saw landscape that I never thought I'd see in the flesh!

In the following days we've travelled to Forster, where I saw wild Dolphins coming in to the bay to feed at sunset. Visited the sick Koalas at the Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie & the abandoned prison of Trial Bay Goal, where a couple of loose Kangaroos  were chilling. I think I was more interested in the Kangaroos than the prison!  Since then we have relaxed at Nambucca, a peaceful beachside town & explored the Dorrigo National Park, it's rainforests and waterfalls.

Our next stop is Ballina with Byron Bay to follow, and all the things to see in between. Weather permitting we're looking to get a few surf lessons under our belts. Can't wait!



Next: Byron to Brisbane
