THE HOME RUN

After a few days road trip to Grafton and Ballina in northern NSW, we made our way home slowly through the back roads. We stopped at Killen Falls Nature Reserve and walked down to the river to see the waterfall.

The path led to a platform over the river but we couldn't get down to the bottom for better photos.

 We drove on through the Northern Rivers Hinterland and came to a lookout where we could see to the ocean.

 We found the yuppy village of Bangalow and had a coffee. Then we drove on down to the coast and stopped at Kingscliff Beach for lunch. It is just south of the border of Queensland.

 The boys.


So we packed a lot into our two day road trip and it was nice to be home again. However, I wouldn't mind staying for a week at one of these beaches.

  10. I love backroads! I think I'd rather have 5 two-day trips than one 10-day trip. Your photos are so beautiful.
