Road Trip Part 19 – Coolangatta: Entrance To The Gold Coast

Coolangatta – great name for a town/city that. Don’t you just love it. I spent just over a day there as part of my road trip from Tasmania right up all the way to North Lakes (and later back to Parramatta). The reason I made the stop off in Coolangatta was to visit George Sutton Read more about Road Trip Part 19 – Coolangatta: Entrance To The Gold Coast[…]

Road Trip Part 18: Sunrise at Byron Bay and Best Break Burgers at Coolie

  After a night of madness and the progression of England into the World Cup Second Round at the expense of Slovenia, I enjoyed a nice sleep in a car park in the hippy magic of Byron Bay.

Road Trip Part 17 – Coffs Harbour, Paddy’s Rest and the Nightmare Drive To Byron Bay

Leaving behind Port Macquarie around 3 pm meant it should have still been possible to see Coff Harbour in daylight. I hadn’t eaten since Newcastle so settled for a quick and easy drive through McDonalds, which sat nicely in the passenger seat and was muched at various slow traffic points on the route up to Read more about Road Trip Part 17 – Coffs Harbour, Paddy’s Rest and the Nightmare Drive To Byron Bay[…]

Road Trip Part 16 – Port MacQuarie

After visiting Newcastle, next up came Port Macquarie, a relatively big harbour town also on the route up to Brisbane.

I parked in the main Read more about Road Trip Part 16 – Port MacQuarie[…]

Broccoli Harvest: Walabadah

To be honest I only remember hearing the name “Walabadah” and thought it was some kind of joke. I don’t reckon I’ve even spelt it right there you know. But the fact is there is a farm close to Cressy called Walabadah and I worked there cutting broccoli. It happened to be the last field Read more about Broccoli Harvest: Walabadah[…]

Broccoli Harvest: Formosa Farm

Next up was Formosa Farm in Cressy. Located just off the main road from Cressy to Poatina, this farm meant a drive along a very narrow mud path and then down a steep hill, which in wet conditions was pretty dangerous! Ironic name too, I thought. The irony only to be lost on those not Read more about Broccoli Harvest: Formosa Farm[…]
