Currently at Huskisson overlooking Jervis Bay, $50 per night premium site with ocean views. Came down via Esk, Warwick and the New England Hi way, Warwick the first night didn’t leave home till after lunch, truck stop at the Hawkesbury Thursday night, Currarong Friday night and off to Narrabeen on the northern beaches for a week tomorrow. Sat around 100kph ( bit more in places) and averaged 16 LPH so pretty happy with that.

Hyundai ??? I would have refused to participate until they called for a real police car to book me. That's just embarrassing

A favourite part of the world for me. Before we moved to BNE we had a regular 3 week block blocking over 4 sites in the park after Xmas and up till Australia Day weekend. Did it for some 20 years same site with my extended family. The bonus was that while wife n kids got a holiday I didn't need to take leave but rather I would go to work each day,, but got to do happy hour every afternoon along with a swim and weekends free to enjoy. My 2 sisters and their family still have the same sites booked.
Great park with plenty to do around the area.

I see a big storm came through Sydney tonight. Hope you are ok and did not get hit too badly or better at all.

Some insurance companies are now giving 10% discounts for fibre glass vans.More severe hail storms are causing large payouts by insurance companies.for hail damaged aluminum cladded vans. Well made fibre glass vans are a lot stronger ,take more punishment, etc etc than the aluminum ones.Plus easier to seal windows ,vents etc on flat fibre glass.Having been involved in the boat building industry.I can say if good quality materials are used I would rather have a fibre glass van any day.
