Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Bellingen 18 - 22 August 2010

Drove onto Macksville for morning tea. Peter remembers the floods that isolated the town, but there was no evidence of the destruction now and today Macksville seems a prosperous farming town. A short drive saw us at Nambucca Heads, a hilly but beautiful spot, with many attractive beaches and a wide river scattered with sandbars. Vowed we would come back and spend more time there. Drove onto Bellingen and camped at the showground. Bellingen was another area where Peter has vivid memories of the dramatic floods that literately tore the town in half. We both enjoyed Bellingen and found it a relaxing town with a variety of services. Went to the pub to hear some local jazz - heard some excellent standards. On Friday morning we wandered up to the park to listen to some local jazz by the Blue Pegs and the Manouche Allstars – both good bands. Had a walk around the town and it reminded us of Berry – lots of old weatherboard cottages with magnificent gardens.
