We travelled via Casino, Whiporie, Kungulla up to the picturesque Nana Glen (close to Coffs Harbour). Nana Glen is an Equestrian Centre where we stayed two nights having a very restful time. We explored the beaches around Coffs Harbour from there, before moving to Coffs Harbour Holiday Park to have the Jurgens serviced. Wednesday we moved on to a town called Wingham where we slept in their free camp next to the Manning River. This little town really welcomes campers and Ron came around promoting his town and telling everyone of all the wonderful things to see in the area and handing out tourist brochures. We really enjoyed staying there.

After visiting the second tallest falls in Australia - Ellenborough Falls falling 200 meters straight down, we moved onto Gloucester and the Barrington Tops National Park. We enjoyed a fabulous two days doing 4x4 driving on some bush tracks and then drove up to the Copeland Tops reserve, then continued on to the Barrington Tops reserve hoping to see the fabulous view from the Devils Hole lookout which was shrouded in cloud. Tomorrow we leave for Singleton and Katoomba west of Sydney.
