Where I stayed
We headed off down the east coast, destination unknown. We decided on Brunswick Heads and were certainly not disappointed. Brunswick Heads, a north coast fishing town is located at the mouth of the Brunswick River so you get the best of both the river and the ocean views. It is a beautiful area and the weather was perfect.
We spent the next day at Bryon Bay which is only a 15 minute drive from Brunswick Heads. After stopping off for coffee at the beachfront hotel which was originally owned by "Strop" John Cornwell and Delvine Delaney we visited the lighthouse which is the most easterly point of Australia and were lucky to see 8 humpback whales and half a dozen dolphins in the area.
We enjoyed a lovely drive to the Bangalow and Mullumbimby area situated in the Brunswick Valley. The rolling green hills provided some beautiful scenery and once again the camera worked overtime. Unfortunately the camera does not truly capture the wonderful country side.
Back at Brunswick Heads we were delighted to witness of pod of dolphins surfing the waves with a group of surfers, it was amazing, not sure who was having the most fun, the dolphins or the surfers.
The caravan park was a lovely park and was situated right in the main shopping area. The lady from the caravan next to us asked what part of Victoria we were from. After telling her Geelong, because not a lot have heard of Drysdale, she proceeded to inform us she was from Drysdale, very small world!
We loved Brunswick Heads, yet another great place to visit, but will move further south tomorrow.
