We were trying to leave early on the Tuesday 22/10/13 but things happen and we ended up leaving later in the afternoon! We thought about staying and leaving early Wednesday morning – sleeping in our own beds and starting our trip with better sleep – yet if we had of done that then our trip would have been even faster than what it was.
It was around 4.30pm when we got on the road – we drove as far as Milton Showgrounds New South Wales, pulling up in the Dark. Lucky we had already sourced out places to stop along the way through our Camps 6 Book, David never likes to set up in the dark cause he likes to know what he is parking on and what is under the tent. Guess you could say it all worked out fine cause I am here to write about our trip!
Driving up to Milton Showgrounds there is a phone on the gate to call. A lovely lady answered and let me know that there is an envelope near the shower block, its an honesty system – you pay the $18.00 and put your phone number on the front of the envelope.
The Price is per Vehicle – not per person, not on the size of your vehicle – charging reasonable prices for families.
Then she gave us the code to the ladies shower block and the code for the men’s shower. Telling us to park anywhere where there was a spot suitable for us.
Seen as how late it was and we still needed dinner, everyone had to pitch in. Before we knew it we had two tents set up, bed in the Campervan set up and boys showered.
After dinner David I headed to bed to get as much sleep as possible – we had a huge day ahead of us! And David is stubborn ~ he prefers to drive and wont let me help him with driving, men!
The Next Morning We Woke To This ::
And had the best coffee ever. David walked to into town which is not a short stroll but he was keen to see more of Milton, and was in need of coffee. Seen as how fussy we are with our Coffee I was glad he had purchased “Black Coffee” so that I could add my own milk – almost as good as he makes it!
Once we had Breakfast done, dishes packed up and everything ready we hit the road, getting as far as Hayden’s Pies in Ulladulla For Breakfast.
Looks like our trip was going to be very slow with all of the stops along the way that we wanted to make, yet we knew we had to be in the Mornington Pensisula area on Thursday 24/10/13 – before the cabin office closed.
Yes we were cutting it fine but we still made sure to have lots of breaks, stopping at tourist attractions as well as fun parks! All of which I will be sharing over the next few days.
Would I Stop at Milton Showgrounds New South Wales again? Yes most certainly – it was a great showgrounds, with the best view to wake up to! With hot showers and toilets, what more could we want!
We Got To See Live Cicadas ~
When We Went To Fitzroy Falls We Had Seen Lots of Cicada Shells but None Were Alive.
It was a great start to our road trip, and one that set the standards high for the rest of our stops.
