After a great Christmas at Polkilbin and New Years at my Mums in Forster. We leave Forster for a week a Myall Lakes Van Park, I booked months ago, but even then a week was all I could get. Originally we had a split booking between a regular site and a “Lakeside” site, but a couple of weeks ago we were moved to a lakeside for the whole stay.Continue reading “Day 1 – Forster to Myall Lakes”
This is a great location for a van park, having not been here before we weren’t quite sure what to expect. I think we got lucky with the site we’ve been given. Such a great view over the lake. Almost like a camp site, but with the benefit of power and water. Having said that, some of the other sites are really boggy with lots of standing water, so I’m damn glad we’re not in one of those or it might be a different story.Continue reading “Day 2 – Hawks Nest”
A lazy start, we’ve specifically got nothing planned for today, just relax and chill out.
When there are no boats around, the lake is pretty calm today. Having said that the boats start pretty early around here.Continue reading “Day 3 – Nothing Planned”
What a difference a night makes.
The rain has gone and the blue sky is out. We get a morning visit from a couple of roos.
After breaky the kids and I go for a morning swim and kayak. The water is pretty warm, well certainly not cold.Continue reading “Day 4”
Up and a quick breakfast. Back in the national park, there are two sections of beach you’re allowed to drive on. While Justine’s not that keen of 4x4ing, I’d like to give it a try. I don’t know too much about the beaches, but the recommendations are not to try and do them on high tide. High tide is at about 2pm, so getting out there in the morning seems the better option.Continue reading “Day 5 – Dark Point 4×4 Trip”
We wake to a grey and very windy morning. The wind is coming straight off the lake to the south and is blowing a gale. We hunker down in the van and no one is very keen to spend much time outside. The sunshade that we’ve got off the side of the awing is flapping around quite a bit so I work out a way with some more guy ropes to secure it better against the wind and it end up being very stable.Continue reading “Day 6 – Park Loop”
Seeing the trip up to the beach the other day was such a hit, we decide to do the Mungo Brush beach run today, by the map it seems there is about 10km of beach to drive up. This time we plan to leave so we can be up at the ferry on the half hour.Continue reading “Day 7 – Mungo Beach 4×4”
We wake at about 3am to the sound of pretty heavy rain, I’m not bothered as such, just the thought of packing up everything when it’s wet stops me from going straight back to sleep.Continue reading “Day 8 – Pack and Home”
