Travelling south on the Pacific Highway was much faster for us than the previous days of travelling along country roads. We lunched in Grafton on the Clarence River. There is a very old and narrow bridge to drive over the river. Grafton was settled in the 1830s...settled for the Red Cedar trees in the area. This 'Red Gold' attracted all who wanted to make a life in Australia...convicts and free settlers alike.
We came out here to camp on the ocean again and cannot decide whether we like camping on the coast or in the mountains. The bush here at Station Creek in the Yuraygir National Park is typically coastal and there are many wild flowers including wattle, fan flowers, banksia and flannel flowers which do not recall seeing before.
