2016 Trip Planning

Our Itinerary

For 2016 we are planning the usual 4 month trip to warmer climes - but this time it will include 3 months at Tallebudgera Creek on the Gold Coast as we need a rest from the long distances that we have done in recent years. As we are taking our van back to Trailblazers in Melbourne for some repairs, minor modifications and a service we booked ourselves on the Spirit of Tasmania leaving on 4 April 2016. This will give Phil and the boys at Trailblazers about 5 weeks to get the work done before we return on 23 May to pick the van up and head North - hope the work does not take 5 weeks though!! They will store the van until we return.

When we return in May we plan one night in Melbourne at Ashley Gardens Big4 Caravan Park, as it is next door to a Safeway Supermarket with a BWS, so we can re-stock the van. Then its a quick trip up the Newell and New England Highways via Jerilderie, Forbes, Coonabarabran, and Glen Innes, before we arrive at Tallebudgera Creek on 28 May 2016. We plan to leave the Gold Coast at the end of August and return home travelling around the Coast via the Pacific and Princess Highways, with stops at Nambucca Heads, Seal Rocks, Lane Cove, Kiama, Narooma, Mallacoota, Bairnsdale, and back to Ashley Gardens in Melbourne, with about 3 nights at each place on the way. We are booked to return to Tassie on the Spirit of Tasmania on 25 September.
