May 22, 2017 - Day 3 - 4, Bretti Reserve, 30k west Gloucester

Great free camp. Counted about 14 vans/tent set ups altogether, and being a large area, this allowed for everyone to have plenty of room around them. We had a lovely spot deep into the reserve, facing the river. Both long drop toilets were clean enough, albeit I didn't want to hang around for very long in the toilet. Cooled down each night and we lit a fire - very warm. No internet or phone coverage, so went into Gloucester one day. Gloucester was an RV friendly town (e.g. specific places to park with a caravan were signposted well). Went...

Mar 14, 2014 - Gloucester

Fortunately we were on the New England Hwy for only a short time today until we got to Bendemeer where we turned onto the Oxley Hwy and headed east toward Walcha and then south to Nowendoc and then Gloucester.

This trip has been about taking roads we have not traversed before and this route to Taree is one of...

Sep 22, 2012 - Birding Trip Gloucester Tops

We woke up really early to eat breakfast and be ready for our 4:00 am departure. We needed to be near our target bird's site at the Gloucester Tops National Park, by dawn. The Rufous Scrub-bird would be the subject of our stalking today. At dawn's break, we began our search. At the first site we didn't get the bird, but did see a great bird - the Australian Logrunner. The second site would set the rest of the day for Mabel. We heard the bird singing and Phil instructed us to "move fast and quietly." There was a very mossy fallen tree,...

Sep 21, 2012 - Birding Trip Gloucester Tops

This was a long day. We woke up very early this morning and went straight to the Royal Botanic Gardens to look for the owl. True to the map, there it was! We also saw four other birds on our walk. We had to cut our time short, otherwise we could have found more. We ate a wonderful breakfast at the Park Hyatt Sydney and then purchased a "no-lock" phone before we left Sydney for our first adventure. We drove about three hours north of Sydney to meet our birding guide, Phil Hansbro. Phil looked for birds as he drove, until it was too dark to...
