To Tamworth then Wellington, NSW

On our way up north in Winter 2017 we stayed at Tamworth for a couple of nights...the link is [here]

On our way back we stayed in a different Caravan Park, the bats were gone and below is a small old caravan in excellent order plus the car is old.

Then a photo of our caravan and 4 wheel drive in a rest area in NSW.




Called to get some diesel and behind the service station where trucks park as a rest area was this mess!  Most unusual to see such a disgraceful mess.




Arrived in Wellington NSW mid afternoon and the river is the Macquarie River then we saw this little caravan - how quaint is that!

  4. The old car and van are way cool, but I think I would rather be in your van with your car towing. It would be challenging to live in a really small caravan, I should think.

    1. Was a surprise to see the old car and van drive drive in, everyone was looking. Too small for me to live in either of those small van.

  5. That 'baby caravan' is cute - but would be challenging to spend much time in I suspect.
    Love the old car and van too, but would agree with Andrew.

    1. I would think that one person would only want to live in that small caravan the more modern one.

  6. What the hell is wrong with people that they dump their trash like that? It is quite disgusting.

    1. Dreadful, nearly wasn't going to take a photo of and thought why not.
      Usually Australia is pretty good with rubbish - well where we have been over the years.

  7. Great car and caravan in that caravan park. Definitely proud owners to have both in such tip top condition.
    As for the mess at the service station...............disgusting.

    I am wondering if Wellington is in the right location - the "M" is right but the river name I think is wrong.

    Some rain in the area would be welcome.........I think they have had some good soaking rain since you went through last year.
    Cheers

      Yes you are correct, the river does start with M - fixed :)
