Yuraygir National Park

After picking the van up from the factory we remained on the Sunshine Coast for several more days before leaving on Sunday 18th May. We spent the night again at the Yelgun rest area on our way south.
From Monday 19th we spent three lovely nights camped at Yuraygir National Park. The park lies along the NSW coast and starts just south of Yamba and hugs the coast for the next 60 odd km. We stayed at the Illaroo campground which backs onto the beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Options while staying here include surfing, swimming, fishing and walks along the beach, that stretches for many kilometres north towards Sandon River. The small town of Wooli is quite close and Grafton is just over 50 km inland. 
Facilities include eco-toilets, rubbish bins and fireplaces. 
6 June:
After a suggestion from Stephen, we have purchased the black infill which arrived today. It was purchased from Caravan and RV Works, who have just relocated to the same street that Bushtracker are in at Kunda Park. Best of all it was on special at $2.00 per metre. We both feel that the black infill is a far better match with the silver cladding.

  1. Ross, a friend of ours has a silver BT. He replaced that white plastic infill that runs along the edge where the roof meets the sides with black infill. He reckoned it looked terrific. Apparently you can buy it at Camec outlets. I forget what it's called, but it was very easy to put in.

    Just sayin'.....

    1. Just looked at his email. It's called Trueline Infill, $2.95 metre, from Camec. He bought 22 metres and used 20.
