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.
