We hastily drove down the coast on the 7th, towards the Sunshine coast, naievely hoping to snag ourselves a spot on a campground. Only to discover that the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Byron regions were all fresh out of spots to camp (due to peak season and school holidays of course).
I made a phone call to Tweed Coast National parks, went to press the number 3 to contact Kingscliff, but accidentally pressed 5 on the keypad, and was put through to Hastings Point.
With a whole lot of holiday luck, Tanya (phone lady) said she had 3 camp spots available. But with a catch – they were unpowered basic sites. Funnily enough, this was the exact type of site we were looking for.
Instead of our expected 4 hour drive, we clocked 490 kilometres, and roughly 7.5 hours in the car.
So we’ve officially crossed the QLD/NSW border, and we’re both pretty grumpy about heading towards home…
Instead of whinging, we’ll just go fishing.
