‘bungles to Brissie – #9 – the last weekend

We woke up to cloudy skies and a little bit of rain. When the rain passed us by we cooked up some breakfast, packed up the camper and started to make our way towards the coast – Woody Point to be specific.

Bells Caravan Park

Having arrived on the coast and located a park we wandered over to the caravan park. We had been calling for most of the morning and hadn’t been able to get anyone on the phone. We had also forgotten it was QLD school holidays, as NSW isn’t on holidays for another couple of weeks so the parks were both looking very full. Thankfully there was someone at the office when we wandered over and there were still a few sites left. We collected the car and trailer and set up on our site at the Bells Caravan Park.

Leeroy doesn’t like being behind bars – wide open spaces for us !

The park is along the main drag into Clontaff and Woody Point and across the road from Bells Beach. We grabbed a bite to eat for lunch and wandered along the waterfront in front of the park.

We spent the afternoon unpacking and packing the trailer, ready to hand our gear over to our mates, and try to pack the rest of it into the truck for the journey home, then it was time to head to the pub for a sunset drink and dinner.

Sunday morning, we finalised the last of the unpacking and packing and rearranging before heading to our mates for the final exchange of gear, a bite to eat and a little bit of exploring of the northern side of the peninsula.

After such a scrumptious (and filling) lunch we opted for a bit a walk along the esplanade.

We then went for a little drive around the new canals and found a pretty darn impressive boat!

hmm dont think we could even afford the fuel but damn it was nice!

Our last night

Unfortunately, it was time to say our goodbyes and hit the road for our final destination for this trip – Brisbane Gateway Resort, located only a few km’s from the factory for a quick (and early) departure in the morning. The park has all the bells and whistles but my gosh its expensive – $53 per night (powered). That has to be the most we’ve paid for a site and i think that includes Vegas !!

There are a lot of cabins in the park.

With an early start on Monday morning we dropped Leeroy off into the safe hands of the Lifestyle boys before heading home via some family at Tweed Heads and Lismore.
