We left Yamba and continued heading south, lots of roadwork with a couple of sections 10-15km’s long. It is a little frustrating but the end result will be great. There are many sections that need to be duplicated to dual lanes and one has to wonder how the people of NSW and Queensland put up with sub standard roads for as long as they did. The Pacific and Bruce Highways were very average only a few years ago and it seems that they are at least trying to catch up.
We stopped for lunch at a road side stop and while we were there a lady give out an almighty scream. A kookaburra had swooped down and pinched a piece of fruit from her hand. We then fed the cheeky bird, who seemed to have little fear of people.
We stopped for the night at the Kendall Showground as it was only 4km from the Pacific Hwy. Power and water and several other friendly campers for $17.00 per night for 2 people, what more do you need.
A fellow 5th wheeler had a very well set up Iveco Daily. It was an ideal setup for people who don’t want or can’t afford a big US F truck or similar. He had also removed the rear seats to get more storage.
A very appropriate sign on the local Men’s Shed.
