myall river camp weekend

Saturday 4th to Sunday 5th February, 2017


Last weekend saw a total of 33 campers trailer, slide ons, roof tops & caravans attend the annual Myall River Camp. Some arrived on the Wednesday previous and some stayed on to the following Wednesday with most people enjoying at least 3 days camped by the river just out of Hawk Nest N.S.W.

 

Early arrivals on the Thursday were treated to a fly over from Williamtown RAAF Base that was only surpassed by another fly over later in the weekend by Kevinís (Davis) blimp , drone or what ever that ad the crowds in rapture. Dolphins were sighted in the river on the Friday and Sunday by most of the guests present.

 

Saturday night saw the traditional dinner on the river where most at the camp dressed in a beach theme and enjoyed the evening. Beery supplied a massive fireworks display at no cost to those present which featured spectacular light flashes and tremendous sound effects that appeared to be inside the shelters and tents that people were standing in. A small drop of rain eased the dust and controlled the fires that were lit for the barbque. After the show most people returned to cook over the relit fires although some campers did sneak off to cook on gas in their own annexes. A gust of wind or two was also organised to test the guy ropes and pegs on all set ups. Sunday saw a number of members take the Ferry to Nelsons Bay which always is a good experience.
 

It was pleasing to see a number of newbies present at the meet, particularly Rick and Carol Harper who called in from QLD on the way to a few weeks touring NSW, (look forward to catching up in the future). It was also noted that Mick Bretherton tested the sand out and needed to rely on a passing vehicle to get off the beach. (probably should have attended the sand driving seminar put on a couple of years back hey Mick?)


Once again our thanks to Park Managers, Henry and Elaine who always go out of their way to make our stay a great experience and thanks all who attended for making what I thought was a great weekend .Thanks also to Anita for collecting the money which helps out Elaine after having a heavy load over the Xmas period.
 

Next year we are looking to have the meet on the weekend before Australia Day and would appreciate any comments regarding this change. That weekend is surprisingly quite although the cost is holiday peak $30 per night.
