Heading back north – Lawrence free camp

We started to head back north from the Blue Mountains on Anzac Day (25 April), it was a cold, foggy and rainy morning.  We wanted to drive as far north as possible via the Bruce Hwy.  We got as far north as Grafton when it stopped raining (about 4:30pm) and decided we needed to find a camp.   That’s when I found Lawrence on the map.  It’s about 30km north of Grafton on the Clarence River and it is a beautiful place to stop.  Quiet and picturesque, the camp has clean toilets and free gas bar-b-ques, and if you don’t feel like cooking the pub is a quick 200m metres up the road. When you leave Lawrence travelling north to the highway a barge takes you accross the Clarence river .
