Gunnedah to Toowoon Bay

We left Gunnedah after my father had shown us around the district. He kept remembering bits and pieces from when he was young. He had recorded most of the things he had done, but occasionally something he saw, jogged his memory, and out would come another story. All this was just fantastic.
So we packed the car and headed back down the New England Highway to Maitland, then joined the Newcastle Expressway which would take us to Toukley, where we would turn off and detour to The Entrance and Toowoon Bay.
When I was young, we would spend the Summer holidays at Toowoon Bay, and I have many fond memories of the beach. I did pack my swimmers and was hoping to have a swim,,,,but the water was quite rough,,,and cold.
We arrived at Toowoon Bay late in the afternoon and booked into the Holiday Park where we would stay for 3 nights. The last time we were there was in 2001, when we had our caravan. My, how things change in just a few years. By the time we unpacked, the sun was going down, so only managed a few pics.

Not a particularly good photo of the outside of the cabin we stayed in.
