Gold Coast

Leisurely drive up the Pacific Highway saw us arriving late in the afternoon at Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park in Palm Beach.  Got a spot right on the water and booked in for a week.  What a marvellous park, friendly staff, excellent facilities and some great fellow travellers.  It's a terrific park for kids.

Veged out a bit in the great weather, but did occasionally stir to take in some of the local attractions.  Springbrook National Park was a treat and we actually spotted a Lyrebird as it crossed the walking track in front of us.  We visited Seaworld and were somewhat disappointed.

Spent a day down at Byron Bay, weather was great, meal in the pub was excellent and the whales abounded (somewhat off shore).  I managed to get a (lucky) shot, through my binoculars, of a whale breaching.

Set off home after our weeks stay and travelled back to Melbourne via Armidale, Dubbo and Benalla.  Spent a day at the Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo working off some of the excess weight by riding round it on hired bikes.
