let’s do our bit for the drought

There is something unmistakably wonderful about rural towns and country people, and it’s not just their friendly welcome! Farmers are attuned to the land and their animals – for them there is no weekend. Many invite us to stay as we travel about, and they love to share their knowledge of their farms and the local region. Farmers are so stoic – they rarely complain… but this time they have suffered in silence for far too long! This terrible drought is affecting all the eastern states to a devastating extent. We hear that graziers are transporting cattle to the saleyards, only to find some have died on the way, and others were in such poor condition they couldn’t be sold. Crops are not even being planted because it’s a costly enterprise…

caravan park costs

Hi Fred, In response to your editorial in issue 263 on the ‘Cost of Caravan Parks’ We are full time travellers and have travelled some 65,000km’s around this vast land of ours. We have used both free camps and caravan parks. The quality of some of the caravan parks we have chosen has been very suspect considering they all charge around $30 - $40 per night. We are using showgrounds as well and find they have more space than the parks. Referring to the cost of running the caravan parks is always something I think about. Whilst owning a home I changed over to solar power and LED lighting, saving myself a lot of money over time. We bought a caravan that was solar powered with LED lights. It amazes me that…

little treasures

Hi Fred, You don’t have to travel far on the North Coast of NSW to find little treasures. Places like Corindi Beach, Evans Head, Wooli, Yamba and Illuka to mention a few. On our last quick getaway we stayed at Foreshores Caravan Park at Numbucca Heads and what a little gem! There were magnificent views, good fishing, kayaking and boating. Amenities are aging but very clean and tidy. All the staff were friendly and obliging. No pool, jumping castle or games room, but not all of us want that! I have been collecting Caravan and Motorhome magazines and DVDs for over 12 years and my office is looking like a shrine to the publication! Regards, Wayne W…

travellers welcome

As a resident of Bulahdelah, I’d like to thank you for your article in issue 264. Yes, the proposed bypass of our town heralded doom and gloom in some areas, but thanks to the local Lions Club, the council and many residents, the town became a RV Friendly town. The Lions Park is always well patronised, to the benefit of both the travellers and the town. You mentioned the Golf Club as another alternative. Free camping is also available at the Bowling Club and the Showground (when not in use for other purposes). The Dump Point for the town is situated at the Showground. In addition, the town has one caravan park for those who don’t wish to “free camp” with another caravan park under construction. As you can see our…

tamworth’s gems

It didn’t seem all that long after I took off in the MU-X with the Snowy River SR-15 in tow, heading north from Sydney, that Tamworth came into view. In fact, it had taken about five hours including stops at places of interest on the way. Compared to the 11 hours and more of towing we’d done recently, this trip was a most welcome surprise! Our first port of call after setting up in the caravan park was at the Tamworth Regional Council Offices. Imagine our surprise, when waiting for our appointment with a tourist officer, to be greeted by the smiling face of a man in a smart suit who obviously knew about us. An animated discussion began and soon we realised we were talking to councillor Col Murray, the…
