Nelson Bay is 150 Kms north of Sydney and we pay a visit to Tom and Julie, long time friends. Tom is recovering (very well) from a double knee replacement so we thought it unfair to play our normal state of origin golf game.
Next stop – Sydney, at the Lane Cove National Park. Siobhan catches up with her best friend, Sheila, and Sheila’s sister and brother-in-law who are visiting from Ireland. We have a lovely meal on the harbour and have a very enjoyable game of golf at Moore Park which was in very good condition considering it is a public golf course in the middle of Sydney. Note the strange collection of Ronald MacDonalds in North Sydney – must have been a convention.
We take our time heading east along the Murray, bush camping mainly right on the river but we also stay in a couple of nicer caravan parks. We play a couple of games of golf – at Barham and Cobram / Barooga. There is another task we are undertaking on this part of the trip – to recce the journey for my sister and brother-in-law when they visit the Murray for a wedding in April.
