    Waterfall Way

    April 18, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    Driving inland now along the aptly named Waterfall Way. Stopped for a great view back across to where we were yesterday and took the opportunity to collect dry wood for our evening campfire and dry the tent outer as it is soaking wet every morning from the heavy dew. Went along a 'skywalk' platform at the Dorrigo Rainforest Centre, which took us over the Gondwana Rainforest canopy before undertaking a 2.5 hour walk through it. This also had some waterfalls like Cascade , which you could walk behind. Fascinating plants and bird life, particularly the fig tree that grows over a host tree eventually killing it and leaving a hollow centre where the host once was. Found a museum in Dorrigo, not yet open to the public, where they have a huge collection of locomotives (75), carriages (280) and other railway things. Dangar Falls fell into a cauldron like basin where as the Ebor Falls fell 100m over edge of the escarpment in two stages, the later one being particularly huge. Needed the fire tonight as we are at higher altitudes now and it's quite cold.Read more

    Copeton Dam

    January 11, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Had to get the caravan fridge looked at in Inverell so stayed 18kms out of town at Copeton Dam. Very hot in the middle of the day as there was no shade, but otherwise beautiful spot right on the water. There were a couple of waterskiers and fisherman around but very quiet considering it was school holidays. Happy hour was spent floating in the lake in our pool hammocks...bliss. Copeton Dam is nearly 3 times the capacity of Sydney harbour. Temperature 21 - 34°Read more

    What a top free camp! Stayed 2 nights at Mother of Ducks Lagoon overlooking lagoon and golf course. Had my first game of golf for the trip. Very high in altitude and cold - 11° overnight. Guyra has the highest caravan park in Australia!Read more

    Cathedral Rock NP

    April 11, 2015 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    Today we visited the "Cathedral Rocks" NP.
    A short little walk took us to the "Rocks" where we had to climb on the top. The "Cathedral Rocks" throne over the Tress on a little hill. That gave us good views over the valley.

    Heute ging es in den "Cathedral Rock" NP. Ein kleiner Rundweg hat uns zu den, über dem Bäumen thronenden Felsen. Diese sind auch noch auf einen kleinen Hügel, sodass wir eine gute Aussicht über die Täler hatten!
    Auch war eine kleine Klettereinheit inbegriffen, um ganz nach oben auf die Felsen zu kommen.

    Guy fawkes

    July 15, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    We continued from Nymboida down the Waterfall Way - a route of over 100km that took in waterfalls at national parks through a windy, undulating, pot-holed, tree-lined and occasionally narrow road. We hadn't planned any stops but we do try and change driver every hour. When my time was up and Ben was due to take over we were atva signpost of 1km from Guy Fawkes River National Park and the Ebor Falls so we stopped in.

    This double waterfall over a huge tree-covered valley was a brilliant sight to see and the walk between the upper and lower falls were a welcome break from the hour on the road.

    The journey took in extensive cattle country - undulating fields with livestock and very few houses or villages. Sadly we passed a couple of dead kangaroo at the roadsides which was both dishearteneing but also made for somewhat concerning road conditions.

    Trout Hatchery & More Waterfalls

    November 23, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Checking out the weather this morning we were a bit apprehensive about predicted winds of up to 52km an hour. We thought we would probably not travel very far today as we didn’t want to risk being up on the open and windy mountains further along the Waterfall Way.

    First place we visited today was Dutton Trout Hatchery, one of two NSW government hatcheries where they breed both rainbow and brown trout. We got to see first hand how they breed the fish, stripping the females of eggs and the males of sperm and creating fertilized eggs that hatch into ‘fry’. It’s a very labor intensive process but one that has definitely increased the numbers of trout, that are then released into waterways across NSW where many people can enjoy the sport of fishing. We walked around the various ponds, feeding pellets to the fish. Cadbury seemed to get a kick out of watching the trout jump about to catch the food. At the end of our visit we bought some delicious looking smoked trout, some of which would no doubt be consumed later today during happy hour!

    After our hatchery visit, and talking to the manager there who lives in the next town up the mountain (Dorrigo) we decided definitely to stay put and not attempt to tow the caravan there until tomorrow. We drove a few km up the road to Ebor Falls, where we explored both the upper and lower falls before driving to the Sports and Recreation Ground nearby for the night.

    We enjoyed happy hour with cheese, trout, crackers and red wine sitting in the afternoon sun, trying to stay out of the wind. Eventually the biting wind won and we retreated inside. Time to cook dinner and get cosy for the evening.

    Good night from Ebor on the Waterfall Way xx
