After leaving Stotts Island Environment Centre we had a massive day ahead of us….we needed to drive at least 6-7 hours so that the next day we were closer to Sydney.
David likes to know where we are going before we head off, I am happy to travel and plan when we get there! So he looked in the Camps 6 Book and jumped onto the CMCA website for any Camping Spots. It would have been good to free camp again, but this time he decided that an over night spot that only charge a small amount of money sounded ideal.
It was so weird, crossing the boarder and not even having time to stop and realise! When we drove out of our David’s Bosses place on the Saturday (really late on the afternoon) 19th of January our one aim was to get over the boarder, and our next aim was to find somewhere free to park our Motorhome over night.
I was happy to park along the beach front at Kingscliffe , but David (and Zachery) was concerned at how close we would have been to the two caravan parks that were in the town.
After leaving Waverley Creek Rest Stop very early in the morning, David and I needed to stop for Breakfast. We made it as far as Marlbourough Road House Caltex Petrol Station before we needed to stop for something to eat/drink and stretch our legs. (and toilet break!)
While we were there we parked out the back (where the big trucks stop) and I looked over to notice this friendly sign….
We left the most amazing place – the most amazing family. I wished I had thought to take photos of the gorgeous people we were staying with, but the last few weeks (leading up to leaving Sarina) was crazy to say the least! We do have lots of great memories, and lots of wonderful times to look back on. The day we left was so very rushed, and we didnt head off till nearly dinner time. Actually I think it was way after 5.00 pm by the time we hit the road.
I was left in charge of packing for our camping trip! Big mistake considering I havent been camping with our three younger ones.
I did try camping with our older two sons, but that was many years ago. Only for one weekend, and it was actually while we lived in Mackay, we stayed at Eungella camping grounds. And I hated every minute of it.
