Thoughts on Location No 4
Yamba, Northern Rivers, New South Wales
Initially, we called into Evans Head, and although the caravan park there is large (the receptionist boasted it was the largest one in New South Wales), after walking around the park and assessing the available sites, we thanked them for their time and moved on.
In 2011, Dean and I hired a Britz motorhome, pointed the nose south and disappeared for 14 days. It was absolute bliss. Much like now, we had no plan, no timetable and no restrictions on what we would do and where we would go. We did have a map and a rough idea and landed in Yamba for two days.
The caravan park itself fringes Yamba Bay in the mouth of the Clarence River and is only a (very) short stroll to the beach. We are parked next to a garden bed and under a beautiful old fig tree, a huge Norfolk Island Pine and a Queen Royal palm tree. After the heat of Ballina, the cool of the shade has been a very welcome relief indeed.
We have three more nights in Yamba before we move onto somewhere else.
I might even be a little sad to leave this lovely area.
