Heading home, Winter 2016

Batemans Bay is not that far from Melbourne, Victoria so therefore not far from home which is the Island of Tasmania south of Victoria.
Batemans Bay was much cooler in temperature so the heater came out when necessary, plus winter clothing.

We stayed in a nice caravan park a few klms from the town it was by the beach, but we couldn't see the sea, that was just a few steps away.




Didn't pull the awning out due to strong winds at times.
Below is the Camp Kitchen for those that wish to use it.


Part of the Playground below.




The sign above was in the fish and chips shop.
One below was in the walkway to the supermarket.



Another beach near Batemans Bay


The houses have the view of above.


On the map don't know why it takes so long to fly - maybe stop over.

Port Macquaire, Bulahdelah, Heatherbrae, NSW

After Port Macquarie we headed to Heatherbrae in NSW for one night before heading towards Sydney,  I planned on the map to go west of Sydney and we found our way without getting lost! 5 lanes of traffic in places.  We have been into Sydney before but without a caravan.

Port Macquaire Police Station, the newer one then the old one.






Bulahdelah, NSW - the shopping area on a rather steep hill, it's here we had lunch at a lovely park.


Caravan Park at near Heatherbrae NSW


The amenities block below and restaurant where we had a meal. 




Heatherbrae is the mark on the map not that far from Sydney 162 klms
First lot of flowers we had seen since leaving home.  Well flowers that we also have at home.

Port Macquarie, NSW

Port Macquarie is a town at the mouth of the Hastings River in New South Wales, Australia. It’s known for its beaches, wildlife and penal colony past. St. Thomas' Anglican Church was built by convicts in the 19th century. A coastal walk from the town centre to the 19th-century Tacking Point Lighthouse offers views over waters home to whales and dolphins.

Once again in Winter 2016 a caravan park was by the Hastings River, this was our view!

Photos of some buildings and beaches plus the lighthouse in Port Macquarie.

The Big Banana, Coffs Harbour, NSW

The Big Banana at Coffs Harbour a busy place with an eatery with all things tasting banana flavour.
Ice skating rink, mini golf and a few other entertaining things to do and see.
We arrived late in the day so therefore wasn't so busy as they were getting ready to close.

A view, Coffs Harbour NSW

Ventured to another lookout in Coffs Harbour whilst there in Winter 2016.
Walked out onto a platform to take these photos.  What a lovely area.






The Picnic Area below, the lookout above.




Not sure what is under the bird netting, the banana trees will need a tidy up below.
