Tallebudgera Creek to Nambucca Heads

Wednesday 31 August 2016

Weather forecast was fine and mainly cloudy for our 355 km trip today.

We were packed up soon after 9:00 am and after a few good-byes to friends in the caravan park we were on our way by about 9:20 am. Our first stop was at the Wardell Rest Area where we got our morning coffees from the food van set up in the rest area. We stopped for fuel on the outskirts of Grafton before continuing on to the McPhillips Rest Area 7 km south of Grafton for a lunch break. As we continued south we drove though multiple road works areas where the Pacific Highway is being upgraded.

Just north of Coffs Harbour we were slowed again to get past the scene of an accident where a car had been pulled out of a small lake beside the road onto the back of a break-down truck. There were numerous Police cars and emergency service vehicles causing the trafic to merge to one lane to make it way past.

Near Urunga we were diverted onto a recently opened section of the Pacific HIghway that took us all the way to the Nambucca Heads turn-off. This section of road is about 25 km and was under construction last year when we were here.

We checked in to the White Albatross Caravan Park at about 3:00 pm for four nights and we allocated waterfront site 18 on the lagoon. No annexe to worry about here, so we were set up with a couple of shade screens in a couple of hours,

Once again we had a wonderful sunset across the Lagoon.
