Flanagans via Kyogle (Bells Bay / Toonumbar Dam)

We decided (after much research) to try out a new camp ground called Bells Bay at Toonumbar Dam about 30k outside Kyogle. It involved a 3 hour drive through some very windy narrow roads to arrive at our planned destination.

We arrived in pitch black darkness to find a very small camp ground on the side of a hill with the only access to the dam via a narrow boat ramp - we think. We were expecting something very different. After a quick surveillance of our supposed home for the next 3 nights we decided to turn around and head back through the windy road all the way back to Flanagan Reserve.

Much to everyone's delight we were able to find Eagle Boys in Kyogle (they do Gluten free pizza) so with full tummy's we finally made our destination after 5 and a half hours.

Despite the showers on Saturday we all enjoyed sitting around the fire and going for a paddle in the boat.

This baby possum had a bad day. After being rescued from this Skip bin he scurried up a tree. Only a few metres up the tree and it was attacked by a Kookaburra. The fight on the ground ended with the Possum biting the Kookaburra around the next until it flew off.

Levuka Easter 2013

 

Easter at Levuka included the Percy's, the Simpkins, Nick Veraart and TeamBray. After setting up on Thursday night we set ouNic out on the trackst to check out the tracks on Friday.

Saturday was Superhero Day and it was great to see everyone get into the spirit of the day including Baby Hulk (aka Mitchell). We set out in the morning to do Rosemary's Track. We soon found out that this was going to be a challenge and after 3 hours and only being halfway through the decision to turn around was made (it was much quicker going down than it was up).

On Sunday we had an Easter Egg hunt before the boys went out to conquer Rosemary's Track. Five and bit hours later they returned to camp very muddy, wet and hungry but feeling victorious as they had achieved their goal.

Monday was time to head home but not before the Ladies had a drive through the rainforest.

Thanks to everyone who helped make Easter camp another memorable occasion.
