Glenreagh to Grafton via the Orara Way

We left the Golden Dog Pub about 9.30am and took some photos of the Glenreagh Pre-School, which caught our eye during our evening walk the day before.

The road from Glenreagh to Grafton could be described as undulating – lots of ups and downs but no big hills.

We arrived at Grafton at lunchtime and pulled into the park next to the information centre. It was quite a warm day and the spray from the fountain, shade and the green grass gave us a pleasant respite from the heat. After making some inquiries at the information centre we bought a couple of toasted sandwiches from McDonalds to supplement our fruit for lunch. Then it was off to the Gateway Village to set up camp for the night.

Soon after we arrived, the campsites surrounding us were quickly filled up with caravans and camper trailers. These belonged to people coming to Grafton to compete in the State Veteran (over 55) Hockey Championships.

The Gateway Village is a very well kept park with lush grass to camp on as well as a very good camp kitchen, which we made good use of. In fact the best camp kitchen we have seen to date. Having access to a fridge makes meals while camping a lot easier. After setting up camp, showering and washing some clothes we went into town to stock up our food supplies.

There was no rain today!
