We soon found the Lions Park
located on the banks.
Our next destination was a free camp near Bundarra. We took the Bundarra Road out of Armidale which connects with Thunderbolts Way. We soon found the Lions Park which is located on the banks of the Gwydir River. This is a great free camp and one of the best we have come across.
Copeton Dam has a caravan park called Copeton Waters, but they wanted to charge a fee just to drive into the park to have a look, so we didn’t bother. Instead we drove up to the dam wall and admired the views across the dam and the engineering in the enormous spillway.
We landed with frosty feet

Cairns has always been a favourite of ours during the southern winter. Clear skies, cool nights and warm days, make it a popular choice for nomads and other visitors. It is recommended that you book your stay well in advance as the population of Cairns swells rapidly at this time.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Cairns, though we probably spent too much money!
