Our first real trip in our new Spinifex was to 1770 north of Bundaberg in Queensland. Our good friends and neighbours, Darryl & Tracey came too (in their OzTent) and towed our boat.
The trip there was a little longer than expected. Getting used to towing the van, a few stops along the way and following the GPS instead of what we had been told all contributed to a 7.5 hour journey.
1770 is a lovely place with some great views. Note to self: “Take more photos of the Caravan Park”
We were lucky that we had two sites, one behind the other, so it was fairly easy to drive the van through. Some sites had trees to negotiate and the roadways were quite narrow. I’m not sure that I would have been able to easily manoeuvre the van with little prior practice (A trap for young players).
Watching the sunset from the beach right on the caravan park is a popular evening pastime. Wine, cheese & bikkies.
We walked around to some nice places.
Darryl & I went to the pub
We had a 4×4 day to the National Park and Bustard Beach Camp Ground
We didn’t catch too many crabs or fish but we had a great time in our boat and made the most of it while the sun shined.
We ate like kings
Then the girls tried to work it off
