Another week of perfect weather and beautiful scenery

We’ve just spent a week in the Camden Haven area.  This place was a real surprise, we knew nothing about the area and didn’t know what to expect.  We were only going to stay 2 nights, but couldn’t drag ourselves away without exploring more of the area.  We’re staying in a small caravan park, Diamond Water in Dunbogan.  With the river and boat ramp on our door step and the ocean beach just 500m away, down a dirt track, it’s perfect for us.  On the two days that we went to the beach to catch sandworms for bait, the ocean was crystal clear and the beach was deserted except for two vehicles driving along the beach, and the only foot prints were our own.  The fishing has been good as well, we’ve been catching flathead and whiting,  there is something special about catching fish and then cooking and eating it straight away.

Goanna:  There are about four Goannas in this park, when we first arrived, they all came down the trees (or where ever they had been) to check us out.

We also spent a day checking out the northern end of Crowdy Bay national park and it’s camp grounds.  The camp grounds are nice and flat and are next to the beach, with a beautiful outlook.  There are free bar-b-ques, flush toilets and cold water (no power).  Camping fees are $10 per person per night and $7 per day for your vehicle.  A total of $27.00 per day for two people, which happens to be what we are paying where we’re staying.  But, we have power, water connected to our caravan, hot showers and toilet facilities , laundry and bar-b-que’s, and a boat ramp, it also has a beautiful outlook.
