Dicky Beach - Day 2

Day 35 - Friday 1 August 2014

Very warm day today with a clear sky and a temperature of 26 degrees.

We needed some more Bio-Magic for the holding tanks so we headed up to Maroochydore as there were supposed to be two agents located there. The first, a local caravan repairer had never heard of it and tried to sell us something else, while the second has closed for two months while they relocate to new premises. We will have to wait until we get to Southport in 10 days or so.

Second stop was Sunshine Plaza so that David could have a haircut, while Di wandered around the shops. We followed up with a wander through Myers then lunch at the Coffee Club.

After lunch we decided to check out the Cotton Tree Caravan Park where a lot of Tasmanians stay when in Maroochydore. Cotton Tree is a very large park - about 400 sites - located at the mouth of the Maroochy River. The park has the usual collection of waterfront sites, slab sites and grass sites but is not as tidy and well maintained as Tallebudgera or Dicky Beach. The park was almost full however with very few vacant sites.
