Lighthouse Beach Holiday Village, Port Macquarie, NSW

Day 282 – 25th November 2011
Lighthouse Beach Holiday Village, Port Macquarie, NSW

This morning we took the back way via Maria River Road (unsealed road full of nasty potholes and water over the road as the surrounding farmland can’t handle all the rain that has been coming down) and Hastings River ferry crossing at Riverside Drive into Port Macquarie. We had booked the van in at the local Ford dealer to check out some issues we have been encountering lately (bad smelling exhaust fumes and loss of power after stalling the van). They had a courtesy bus that took us into town where we went for a short stroll to look at the River Inlet but as it was raining we didn’t walk far. We had a lovely lunch at Beantree Café before taking the courtesy bus back as they were finished with the van. Diagnosis was set that the exhaust valve needs to be replaced so we have booked in the van for next week at a Newcastle Ford dealer. Afterwards we went for a drive along the coast to various lookouts and the Tacking Point Lighthouse. Even though it hasn’t stopped raining and it’s pretty grey at the moment you can still see the beauty of this coastline.
