Saturday 18th Dec
We set off with all intentions of going straight to Oberon & then heading for the caves but decided to take a detour & do the caves on the way through.
OMG the road was winding & steep ……….. down hill …… for what seemed ages! But suddenly in front of us where the caves.
We checked out what guided tours where going & the 1 we plumped for was the Lucas Caves & I quote
” Lucas Caves ….. Length 860m. 1.5hrs 910 steps. Level 3 (strenuous )”!!!
Friday 17th Dec
WOW we drove trough to Katoomba. The Blue Mountains are just totally amazing, to see them was almost emotional. No picture can ever do them justice.
We parked the van at the site & headed off to Scenic World which was 250meters from the site & then had what can only be described as a hair raising trip on 1 of the steepest railways ever built, it was a vertical drop!!!
Thursday 16th Dec.
We left the beautiful Port Macquarie & headed off to The Hunter Valley. The weather turned abit rough & we saw the most amazing lightening bolts. We found out not long after that a man had been killed not far from where we had driven after being struck by lightening whilst playing golf!

Port Macquarie beckons it was a relatively short trip today so we arrived nice & early (Noonish!) & set off for a walk to the beach which was directly next to the site, we had a lovely walk round & then into the harbour & were pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was here, it’s very smart & a beautiful setting.
Tuesday 14th Dec
After a rain filled night we set off in near clear blue skies to Coffs Harbour, We found the next site very easily right on the edge of the Pacific Highway! We parked the van & went of to explore the area & find the beach. We found the shops no problem but as for the sea …………. now that’s another story!!! We walked & we walked & eventually found the sea & was slightly disappointed to find the beach surrounded by rocks.
