Nambucca Heads

Friday 1 Sep to Saturday 2 Sep 2017

Friday was very windy and quite cool, so we spent the day doing the washing and a bit of shopping,

Saturday was much nicer as the wind had dropped. We drove to Taylors Arm for lunch at The Pub With No Beer. Taylors Arm is located about 30 km west of Macksville which is about 10 km south of Nambucca on the Pacific Highway. While we were at Taylors Arm we checked the almost free camp - $5.00 fer stay. Next year we will give Nambucca Heads a miss and stay at Taylors Arm - should save about $150.00.

On the way back from lunch we called in at the Rusty Iron Rally at the Macksville Showground. Plenty of old engines, old farm machinery, old cars and lots of junk for sale.
